Columbus-HO edition


Look! There it is! The new world! That's what Christopher Columbus is pointing at, you can't see it in this picture but its there. Happy Columbus Day everyone! Those of you that have today off, like me, because of the guy pictured below, congrats! Everyone else...yay! Its Monday! I'll drink one for you! Maybe even two.

For those of you that are unaware of what today signifies, it is the day that marks Christopher Columbus's arrival in the America's, way back in 1492, back when the world was flat.

Kind of a scary proposition, falling off the edge of the earth, but Columbus manned up and went for it anyway Images_medium

Not only was the implication of falling into infinite oblivion at the helm of every crewmen's mind, but the journey itself ment sailing threw uncharted waters, without any knowledge of what lay ahead. Can you say "scared sh*tless?"

Yeah, that looks like a bad day. Multiply that times 5 weeks and you have Columbus' voyage. Which is also similar to watching Matt Cassel throw the deep ball. Really scary!

Ok...maybe not that scary, but its still a close second! Bad joke? I couldn't help myself, I apologize. As this season progresses, we're finding plenty of positives and plenty of not-so-positives to post and protest about. After yesterday's performance, many of us have taken the familiar air of the "angry mob," calling for Cassel's head and the immediate banishment of Dwayne Bowe to the Arctic circle.

Sadly, we can't always have what we want. But there's always hope! Just like Columbus (not really, but go with me on this anyway), we've had a tough voyage. We're sailing through uncharted waters right now with a QB that has been holding us back somewhat, but I don't think he'll be allowed to hold us back for too much longer. We have a "ton" of talent that has the ability to unleash the beast at any moment.

And although we whine and complain (me included), our 2010 team compared to last year's team is beyond Night and Day different.

We're sitting atop the AFC West right now with an opportunity to finish this season with a run at the playoffs. Who would've thought that would ever be possible? Not me. We're not a perfect team, and we're still a team in transition. We need a couple pieces to make this machine work.

But once we find those pieces, and get them in place...

Enough said. We have a team full of talented youth, that pack the will to learn, and the desire to win. 2010 is truly a new world for us. And just as the statue of Columbus points ahead, that is where we're going. Forward. The future is bright for our young team, and although it won't always be pretty

that doesn't mean we can't continue to sail ahead, intent on trying to achieve our goal
