I want to close the season with some good vibes, a Manning sack, and a look through my thick, rose-colored glasses.
One thing that did stand out to me last time the Chiefs played Peyton Manning was the pass rush the Chiefs were able to bring. Tamba Hali and Justin Houston had great games, with Houston nabbing two sacks himself. These two have been quite a pair this year, with 19 sacks between them at this point. If Hali is worthy of the Pro Bowl with nine sacks, Houston is certainly worthy with 10. (And he just might be ... as a Pro Bowl alternate.) I'm highly optimistic about what they will be able to do for this team in the future. That is where I want to begin as we transition into the offseason in three days.
Posterized: The complete series
We did enough to get five players to the Pro Bowl this year, and for my series, that's quite a gift. I'm going to try and give you guys five fresh paintings before the game to kickstart the positive energy leading into 2013.
I've got some cool ideas for Jamaal Charles and Dustin Colquitt, but I'm curious what everyone wants to see. Feel free to drop me a comment if you have a thought.
Happy last Red-Friday of the year everybody. Hopefully everyone has a good weekend!
