Any hunter or fisherman knows that wild game and fish - and the hunting and fishing that goes with getting it - makes for the healthiest food you can get for your family. But probably few of us knew it could build a body and a spirit that could win football games in the toughest arena on earth.

I kept hearing that the New Orleans Saints got the guys who should have been Patriots - Cam Jordan and Mark Ingram. But if you like the Patriots and wanted to flip drafts with any team, the Chiefs might be the ones.
