When it comes to Elvises (Elvi?), I have always been a Costello man, as opposed to Baltimore Raven Coach Brian Billick, who spent $30 million last off-season to cast his lot with Grbac, and we know where that got him.

The last Kansas City quarterback to throw five touchdown passes in a game went to the Hall of Fame. Elvis Grbac was happy just to get out of the doghouse. "If anybody in Kansas City deserves to be the man around here it's Elvis Grbac," center Tim Grunhard said after Grbac's five touchdown passes led the Chiefs to a 42-10 victory over winless San Diego. "He's taken more than anybody has ever taken in the history of this organization. Five touchdowns? Are you kidding me?
