    CAN THE BROWNS REPEAT?
    ---Of course coming off the dominant performance the Browns Ryty put on their run to winning HK Season 3, the Browns decided to trade their all-world RB Schon Moorehouse to the Kansas City Chiefs. The question now remains is who made who? Moorehouse is a once in a lifetime type talent, the type of back that can put him among the immortal greats like Emmitt Smith, Barry Sanders, Jim Brown and Walter Payton. But was he a product of being behind one of the more dominant offensive lines in recent memory? Apparently with Moorehouse asking for a ton of money, the Browns decided to trade him away, figuring that almost anyone can run behind this line. And while that maybe true, the myth of Moorehouse was the fact that he was very durable, and a speedy powerful back, the football LeBron James. Behind this dominant offensive line, or Moorehouse, or even this great Browns defense, can they get back to the mountain top?

    MOOREHOUSE EFFECT?
    ---We can talk about greenhouse effects but the Moorehouse effect is more interesting to me. He's going from superbowl winner to the bottom of the barrel in the Chiefs. The Chiefs are a team that originally wanted to run the ball but last year went to become "air sporty" and while the results weren't pretty, they mostly tried to maintain that offense. Enter the beast incarnate himself, Schon Moorehouse. Can he make the Chiefs a contender? The Chiefs have gone all in trying to surround Moorehouse and put him behind a good offensive line. Will the myth continue to improve upon its legend?

    TRADES ON TRADES ON TRADES
    ---There have been massive amount of trades, from Colin Kaepernick to Patrick Peterson to JJ Watt. HK's best players have moved this off-season as GM's tinker their teams maybe the most ever this past season. I mean there have been so many trades that I can't even keep up with them. The blockbuster trade this offseason was the JJ Watt for Andrew Luck mega deal. Will this change the dynamic in the AFC?

    GIDDY ON UP
    ---There's no denying the Cowboys struggles and coach BobJr will tell you himself how low the team's morale was last year. But alas a new year is among us and another starting QB enters the fold in Ryan Mallett, to hopefully deliver some wins. They've built up their own Moorehouse of sorts in Damon Crisp, a massive RB who can take on 25-30 carries a game but can they rely on his legs to get some victories? At least just one (which would get the monkey off Bob's back)?

    GREEN BAY FLUKES?
    ---The Packers under Danthraxxx SB run ended abruptly with an awful showing in the Super Bowl and much talk was the way they made it to the SB. All week during media day before the SB, the talk was more on how the Packers got there behind their offense and the heavy play action element even when it wasn't set up according to most pundits and media members. Moreso, the Rams weren't coached by Zikry because he was on leave and the Redskins, SB winners two seasons ago and heavy favorite, didn't get to the NFC championship. The Packers may have a chip on their shoulders after being the talk of the town for all the wrong reasons. We will see how they respond.

    RELOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
    ---2 teams have moved to their new homes including the Rams, now the Los Angeles Rams and the Bills, now the Brooklyn Barons. The Rams head into their new home with high hopes and their coach with more swagger than usual. The Barons BG head into Brooklyn with higher expectations after their season ended before expected, following a nice run earlier in the season. It will be interesting to see if fans run to these new stadiums and if the teams can continue the upward climb they both have exhibited recently.

    Great stuff, Mo.

    If anyone has a RB that they are willing to trade, I have plenty of picks to offer!
