Morning Update ($4,300 Edition)

  • Talk about your boring headlines during Super Bowl week -- Super Bowl ratings so-so for Purdue QBs.

  • Jared Allen is opening up his own restaurant in Kansas City in early March, with "17 42-inch plasma TVs, a game room, a dance club, an outdoor rooftop deck and a street-level patio."

  • The Kansas City Star says the Chiefs may not be able to pass on a franchise quarterback in the draft. Too bad Matt Ryan isn't one.

  • I've said it here a bunch and KC Chiefs Fanatic says its better -- The Danger Behind the Hype.

  • Jon at MVN weighs drafting the best player available versus drafting by need.

  • Al Saunders, the Chiefs offensive coordinator from 1989 to 1998, was fired from his position with the Washington Redskins.

  • Could the Dolphins trade away the #1 overall pick?

  • $4,300 for a Super Bowl ticket? I'll pass.
So the Senior Bowl has come and gone with not a lot of new news to report. Based on DJ's fantastic post about the ups and downs of the Senior Bowl, the player I'm most excited about now is Sedrick Ellis, a big DT from USC. Depending on trade offers the Chiefs may get with the #4 or #5 pick, I would be satisfied with taking Ellis with our first rounder. I say that with the vivid, haunting memory of Ryan Sims in my head and months of hype to come.

Besides the Super Bowl this weekend, the next football related event we have to look forward to is the Combine February 20-26. That's where the coin flip will take place to determine the 3,4,5 draft order.

After reading that KC Star article, let me play devil's advocate for a minute and ask -- What would happen if the Chiefs did draft Matt Ryan? A fan revolt? Eventual complacency? I'd be disappointed with a hint of curiosity.
