AFC West


Broncos - 9th :rolleyes:

I know that they base toughness of schedule on last year's won-lost, and I haven't worked it out completely, but it just seems to me that no team has faced a tougher bunch than the Broncos have. They're an interesting team, capable of towering performances, especially when poor old Z picks against them. Did they look soft against the run vs. Tennessee on Monday night? I don't think so.

Chargers - 13th

Gosh, I don't know what to do with them. Usually when a team makes it close against a higher-ranked club, it drops only one or two places. But I get the feeling that San Diego turns it on only when it wants to.[/

Chiefs - 23rd

Nothing to be ashamed of. Slugfest against a quality team, then finally on the last drive, Peyton gets hot and takes his boys in for the win. And maybe the young QB Brodie Croyle, can get hot enough to put enough points on the board, himself, against the contending teams still ahead.

Raiders - 30th

OK, it's bad enough that on the first play, the Vikings called a flanker reverse pass, Sidney Rice to Visanthe Shiancoe, a tight end whom I could run faster than, and got 79 yards out of it. In the second half they did it again -- same cast, Rice to Shiancoe -- this time for 15 yards. Wadda youse guys, dumb or sumting?
