"I believe Ahman Green is the best back in the NFL. That's just what I believe."
, choosing the Packers' Green over Priest Holmes, WHB 810
GH: Green is a great back but he has Brett Favre in his backfield to force defense to respect the deep-passing game.

GH: Thompson, a Missouri grad, is a new sportswriter for the
Star who traveled to Ohio recently to do a where-is-he-now story on the Chiefs' former quarterback. Almost 2,000 words into his article, Thompson reveals that he never even knocked on Grbac's door for an interview. Wright could not have been more wrong.
"I'm proud of Esera Tuaolo. By coming out to the world, he did something a lot of guys would never have the guts to do. Knowing that he's gay, it doesn't change anything ... I have to admit, if I knew an openly gay guy was in the shower, I would not be in a rush to go in there."
