The story in today's paper has them saying they're keeping AK --- 
that may very well just be some damage control, who knows.  I think 
it woudl take Wally, Gomes and next years #1 -- or maybe swapping 
this years picks (#5 for #25).

FWIW, i think there will be several teams that get old pretty quick 
in the East (NJ, MIA, DET, even CLE).  I'm not saying right away but 
in the next season or 2.
