NFL Week 10: Well, That Wasn't What We Expected...

Welcome back, everyone!!! For better or for worse, the national blight is finally over, and like him or not, Donald Trump will become the next President of the United States of America. Those are words I truly never expected to say. It's kinda like saying the Jacksonville Jaguars are Super Bowl Champions, but at least that junk is behind us for at least 2 years, when the next cycle will drive us into the ground.

So, how was your week? My Chiefs pulled off a win against those Jaguars-barely. Yeah, Alex Smith and Spencer Ware didn't play, and Jeremy Maclin barely played (fantasy peeps, he is out this week), and still no Justin Houston, but seriously, this game should not have been as close as it was.  Mad props to Charcandrick West and Cairo Santos who helped my Lucille Swings team eek out a victory this week. FYI, Travis Kelce, get it together, man!!! You are a pretty good tight end, but son, you are not Tony Gonzalez, you are not going to get those calls, and you need to chill. That $24,000 fine you received this week should be a wake up call. We need you on the field not in the locker room, especially when I play you over Jimmy Graham who would have pounded my opponent into submission, rather than having a 90.70-90.64 skin of my teeth victory.  BY THE BY, JIMMY, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL YEAR?
Speaking of Tony Gonzalez, Friday was the fourth anniversary of Tony Gonzalez scoring his 100th touchdown, the first tight end to do so (for those new to the blog, I was actually there to see him score that touchdown against the Saints in the Super Dome). He later scored 101 in the same game. He currently holds the record for Touchdowns for tight ends with 111, but that record will probably belong to Antonio Gates by the end of the year and Rob Gronkowski in the next few years if he can stay healthy.  Also on Friday, the NFL Network revealed a revamped Top 10-Tight Ends list, and the #1 Tight End of all time?  Tony Gonzalez...nothing else needs to be said. Congrats to the G.O.A.T!!!

Last week, Green Bay and Denver ruined what could have been a perfect week. Even so, I'll take an 11-2 week which brings my record to 81-52. My fantasy teams are also sitting pretty:  Lucille Swings is in first place with a 7-2 record, and Lochte and Loaded is in second place with a 6-2 record. Fantasy fans: Buffalo, Oakland, Indianapolis, and Detroit all have byes this week.
