It's here: the end of the road. As one of the fortunate few who has survived 16 weeks of Jamaal Charles' stable-as-Kanye's-love-life play, Maurice Jones-Drew's "Wait, he was a first-round pick?" season, or Matthew Stafford's "I have only one receiver, and I will use him, darn it" trek, I congratulate you.
