According to BetCRIS.

Denver -11
O/U 40

This could be ugly.

I'll take that bet. Jake the mistake and LJ will keep it within 10.

I can't remember the Chiefs ever being DD underdogs

Neither can I. Without Trent Green, Vegas and bettors evidently think the Chiefs are about the worst team in the league. I can think of very few teams that would get 11 points at Denver, especially after Denver's performance Sunday.

I'm new to this betting thing.....

Is O/U 40 the number of times Huard will drop the ball or the number of points Denver will score?

Houston is getting 13 at Indy, and Indy is at least two points better than Denver. +11 at Denver!

I'm just amazed at how bad the market thinks we are.

They will be able to cover that unless our offense can block for LJ like they did last year. If not Denver will win by 2 td's

It would probably be higher, but Denver looked like crap last week.

I would take the under. I think we'll hold Denver under 40.

We will have to take a few chance to have a shot in Denver. 4th and 1 we need to go for it unless we are on our side of the 50.

Well we did look like the worst team in the NFL on Sunday. Take the Bronco's now because the spread has a chance of getting larger.

Even with Trent Green in there the past few years, that hasn't prevented the Chiefs from losing by double digits.

I actually think this is going to be a closer game than most people think. The Lambs exposed Denver's run defense yesterday which bodes well for LJ getting back on track.

Believe me, I was depressed about our game.
But I did watch both, the big screen right in front of me kind of mandated at least some of the Donkey game seeping in, and BOTH the Rams and Broncos [w/the possible chicken/egg exception of the Rams D] looked worse than us.

We ARE that bad. Only 1 real WR, 3/5 of an O-line, a starting QB who is only 1 season removed from being a 3rd stringer, no DT's or Safeties to speak of, and we have Herm as our HC. I expected the line to be at least 13, especially when you consider that this is Denver's home opener and they got spanked yesterday. It's going to be sooooooo easy for the Donx to defend the Chiefs anemic offense and you know how we do against the run and the bootleg up there. This one's going to be ugly bordering on funny. It's just what the Donx need to send them in the right direction...

This is the OPENING line I am sure there will be heavy action on the Broncos and I could see this one going to 13

Oh please. Green Bay looked much worse.

So did you actually watch any of the Rams-Broncos game, or did you just see Jackson's stat line? They were harldy exposed. The guy was at 20-71 until 3 minutes left in the game. 2 runs giving him another 50 when the game was over and Denver couldn't stop the clock again don't really mean much to anyone but people with Jackson on their fantasy teams.

Actually, both Bays looked worse. Tampa got spanked at home as well. So that makes us 3rd worst at worst. :p

I did watch the game and Jackson averaged 5.5 yards per carry and Lambs as a team averaged 4.5 yards per carry.

Your attempt to play down the Lambs physical beatdown of Denver's run defense is quite pathetic.

if we don't run the ball 85% of the time and go into super conservative mode, I am going to be an upset ninja!

A physical beat down? Now I know you didn't watch the game when the Rams had the ball. 71 yards on 20 carries is not a physical beatdown. Wow, Jackson broke a 13 and 37 yarder when the game was over and Denver couldn't stop the clock. He really showed up the Denver defense. I realize you're looking for some glimmer of hope after the way KC played this weekend, but Denver's run defense is just about the least of it's worries. 71 yards for Jackson until the final drive, and 78 yds on 23 carries for the team. But then again, it's not like Denver has to worry about KC throwing the ball next week. LJ really tore it up last week against the Cincy run D too. I'd have hoped for better against the league's 20th best run defense last year.

Huard....11 points...Huard...11 points....hmmm

we've certainly had better (edit) teams lose by more...but our D isn't that bad anymore (I think) which means while it may be 99% certain we will lose, it is not near as likely that we will lose by 12 or more....I think I'll take that bet...

Given Denver's poor start that seems a little harsh. 8 points is about where I think it belongs.
