Just marking time 'til Sunday fellow folk. Marking time and thinking about interesting topics to share with the Steel Nation as it relates to both a hopeful compelling topic and what to look for as the whistle blows on the 2008 season.
We OK with that? Good. By the way, for the newly initiated, I'm a Chief's fan, so let me lead off with this nugget:
If you tune in your Directv Sunday Ticket to a Chief's game, (As I will any time the Steel is playing without a KC conflict), here's the guy that I'll be watching and would direct you to do the same:
He's #25, RB, Jamaal Charles (U of Tx) and one of the 3d round picks KC obtainted from the Minnies for Jared Allen this past off-season. This guy has had an uneven pre-season, having been dinged up a bit but in the games he has played? WOW!
He's very fast, in the 4.3 40 time range, but there are lots of guys that have that timing on their resume'. What separates Charles is his vision and ability to make guys miss, sort of a lower case Gayle Sayers. He's raw, obviously, but will see time as a 3d down back or more as the season progresses and one to watch.
OK, who's the ONE guy on the Steel that HL should focus on????
