A small measure of revenge...very small

Here's where we took the Chiefs yesterday. We took 'em out back, pulled down their stupid red clown-pants and repeatedly whipped them with a switch. It was fun as fuck to be in the stands for this game, a little chilly, but when everything (and I mean everything) goes your way it warms you up a bit.

Cutler was sick, Marshall was sick, Selvin Young was sick (he'll make some pretty nice trade bait starting in March), the O-Line was unbelievable, etc. Everyone was as good yesterday as they were terrible last Sunday.

Really though, it's hard to take anything away from it other than how dog-shit terrible KC is. Yeah, we whipped their ass, but man are they awful. They're the only team in the league that can't run the ball at will on us, and that's saying something.

Three games left in this terrible, schizophrenic season, but at least the boys took their Clozapine this week.

Gaddammit, Tennessee. If not for your gag job, we'd be looking at a possible Xmas Eve showdown in SD.

You think they'll trade Selvin? I say cut Travis Weed-ry's behind (and take the $$$ hit) and roll with Young.

Yeah. I'd much rather see Selvin stick around instead of Travis, but I don't see it happening.

Selvin probably has a higher trade value. I don't think anyone in their right mind would trade for Henry with his contract and history, which means we either take a massive cash hit or keep him. Shanny will let him stick it out for at least one more year. He's got a lot invested in the dipshit.

Mike Bell will be gone too. What the fuck happened to that guy?

I doubt they could get much at all in trade value for Selvin--I think a lot of the league would see him as just another product of the system. Outside of Portis, who's been decent (though vastly overpaid) as a Redskin, the track record for Broncos RBs who go elsewhere is pretty bad.

We actually talked about this after the game--the guy with the highest trade value is Brandon Marshall. I know, I'd hate to deal him, but he's young, freakishly talented and cheap. All great qualities for a potential trade partner. You could easily get a second and maybe a first.

You'll never get true value for Javon with his knee problems (plus he's got a huge contract), you can't trade Cutler or Champ, and the rest of the defense is either too old and pricy or too young and unaccomplished.

Ruben Droughns had a couple of pretty decent years in Cle.

You gotta admit though, Selvin's trade value is much higher than Henry's.
