2008 Preseason Already a Relative Success

Shot_calling_medium
When is an NFL kicker going to line up for a field goal, raise his hand in the air and call his shot? Just like Jake Taylor in Major League. "Novak is pointing to the bleachers! He's calling his shot!"

Good morning everyone. I've got a few more stats for you to look at, comparing the four preseason games from last to the two the Kansas City Chiefs have played so far this year. The more I look back on 2007 the more I realize what a black hole it will be in my memory. That wasn't even football we were playing last year. And I really need to watch the two preseseason games because I'm starting to sound like a broken record.

DJ and Direckshun have some good stuff already posted from last night so I won't take up too much more of your time. Here's a little Chiefs blogosphere round up for you.

KC Chiefs Fanatic - Roster Roundup - WR

Arrowhead Addict - Biggest Personnel Mistake?

BobGretz.com - Wednesday Morning Cup 'O Chiefs

Kent Babb, KC Star - Though just a temp for Chiefs, Taylor hopes to make lasting impression

Is this the golden age for Kansas City Chiefs coverage or what? We have so many sources of information, so many interesting and excellent people covering our team and the best sports staff of any newspaper in the country. Kent Babb is my favorite Star columnist; Bob Gretz runs the best Chiefs sports blog; and there is so much video and other media content out there to satisfy even the most die-hard fans.

To you older fans reading this, how does 2008 compare to twenty, thirty or even forty years ago as far as the quality of coverage? Do you like more choices and more outlets or has the level of discussion declined in your opinion?

I have a mean libertarian streak in me so I'm always going to say more choice is better.
