Found this on the Mane... Season opener @ Oakland, then the home opener vs the Chargers in week 2... KC road trip in week 4.

Bye in week 8 - pretty decent

First 7 games aren't easy though.

Away: Oak / KC / NE

Home: SD / NOS / TB / JAX

Overall, it's pretty balanced... season ending @ SD... boo.

Two back-to-back sets of home games and only one two-game road trip. Lots of coast-to-coast, but that's nothing new in this division. Doesn't look all that bad.

They get a whoppin' 10 days to prepare for the Falcons...is that enough time?

Also their game in KC is the day of the NASCAR race is KS, could Denver fans scoop enough tickets to make it a 9th home game for them?

That would rule...

I like Denver @ KC in September and KC @ Denver in December.

Are you saying Chiefs fans would skip a game in Arrowhead to go watch the neckcars go round and round?
Abandon the NFL for the Left Turn League?
I can't see that happening.

I can't see that happening.I can't either. While there's some crossover, it's not exactly the same group of people going to each venue. At least not in my experience (admittedly I haven't been to the speedway since '02...).

No matter what people say in the off season the vast majority will be ready for some football come opening day.

Once the autumn air rolls in and you can smell football on the breeze all past trangressions committed by team and ownership are forgotten; gridiron hope springs eternal.

My problem is I have an out of town committment week 4 I don't want to get out of for sentimental reasons. I was thinking about using a ticket broker b/c I kinda want to make a profit. But, I DON'T WANT NO DONKEY TRASH SITTIN' IN MY SEAT.

Umm, dude, you know we're talking about the Chiefs, not the Cubs.

I need somebody to explain exactly how and why in the f*ck Denver and Oakland are playing the season opener on Monday night.

(okay, okay would've been a better joke if they played Thursday night)

It is a match up with a strong sense of NFL history.

The Javon Walker angle will be an interesting one.

The two young QBs (Russel vs. Cutler) is another angle they can play up.

They can do an extreme closeup to critique the quality of Al Davis' taxidermy procedure.

Other than that I got nothin'.

Well, that's a good guess, but if they wanted a historical perspective against rival teams, it doesn't get much nastier between Ben Davidson and Len Dawson.

Watching Gramps Al get filled up with formaldahyde would certainly be more entertaining than the game.

Yep KC-Oakland is also a rivalry with history behind it.
After last year I can't see why any AFC West team would be on MNF except for SD but someone has to play.

I bet they have some double-header shit planned for the first Monday nighter.
