Week 16 Cheat Sheet: Some coal for that stocking (http://msn.foxsports.com/other/story/8949556/Week-16-Cheat-Sheet:-Some-coal-for-that-stocking-)

With the holidays just around the corner, it'd be real warm and cuddly to give out a few stocking stuffers for some of the NFL's feel-good stories from 2008. A shiny Rookie of the Year award (with some MVP votes sprinkled on top) for Matt Ryan, a bunch of pats on the back and some Coach of the Year love for Tony Sparano, perhaps even a box of chocolates with a note reading "Do Not Eat until after the playoffs" for LenDale White.

Adorable, right? It'd be a great holiday celebration one filled with applause, joy, and ear-to-ear smiles. Real Hallmark Made for TV movie stuff.
But the Cheat Sheet's not about any of that.
We're dark, baby. We're ugly. We're nasty.
We give out lumps of coal, wet socks, and Tim Couch jerseys on the holidays. Look elsewhere for the lovey dovey stuff. Here's our list of folks getting moldy fruitcakes and bags of dirt in their stockings this year:

Herm Edwards: We like Herm. He's always good for a press conference quote, his players look up to him, and he's all-around good for the NFL. But if you're playing "to win the game," you have to get your team to close out fourth quarters and actually win a few games. In Week 9, the Chiefs led 24-3, only to give up 20 second-half points and ultimately lose 30-27 in overtime to Tampa Bay. Fast-forward six weeks and the Chiefs are leading the hated Chargers 21-3 in the first half, only to fall 22-21 in the final moments after a bobbled onside kick. Both collapses occurred in the usually unfriendly confines of Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs are now just two losses shy of a franchise-worst mark of 14 for the season. Yes, they're young. And sure, they've had a bunch of injuries. But a 1-6 record at Arrowhead including two games that were in the bag isn't exactly holiday cheer-worthy. Longtime Chiefs GM Carl Peterson resigned on Monday. Here's to hoping Herm sticks around and brings Kansas City back from the ashes next year.

Well he works for FOX, so that means he is pretty shitty, but he also write for a hard hitting journalism monster like whereistand.com. (http://whereistand.com/PeterSchrager)
That seems to be about like the webs encyclopedic version of WPI for all subjets, every idiot gets a voice.
