So if the Broncos beat the Chiefs on Sunday, do they move up ahead of KC in the rankings?


12 Raiders 5-4 Only three AFC teams have more wins and only one other (the Jets) is 3-0 in its division.

14 Chiefs 5-3 The Chiefs' next four games appear favorable: at Denver, Arizona, at Seattle, Denver.

16 Chargers 4-5 Are the Chargers transitioning from typically poor early season to typically strong late season?

29 Broncos 2-6 Losers of four in a row before the bye, the Broncos now play host to the division-leading Chiefs.

Oakland has a tough stretch ahead after the bye.
@ Steelers
vs. Dolphins (Only lost 1 road game)
@ Chargers
@ Jaguars

I'm more worried about the Chargers...they can win a lot of games. They have @ Indy...(who's really banged up), SF at home and @ Cincy...all the rest are AFC west.

I don't think the Chiefs are ready for primetime. They aren't used to being a targeting team, as we are now that we are in the division lead. We'll get Denver's best game, and those other team's aren't slouches. I don't think we're ready this year, but we'll find out soon enough. It was fun while it lasted.

We are top ten in offense, defense, scoring and have one of the best special teams in the NFL. We are a top ten team.

Uh-oh.... I think I see what you mean. The Chiefs are 2-3 after their bye. Ominous - not championship football. Oakland's run D tightened up in that stretch allowing only 85 yards per game generating a 4-1 record in that period. Only reason the Raiders were able to climb up is cuz the Chiefs fell down after their bye. Hope Oakland doesn't start going the KC way....

10 wins...wins the west.

Raiders wont get to 9, not worried about them.

Chargers have very little room for error (can only lose 1 more game to get to 10 wins)

Chiefs just need to go 4-3 down stretch to win the division. The two bronco games and the raider game at home are very important. The chargers already have 2 losses in the division.

I wouldnt be suprised if we see the Chargers at the top again. Rivers is destroying the league and he doesnt have his #1 receiver but he will. The Chiefs have 4 games left that make me nervous. 1. This upcomming Broncos game in Denver. 2. Chargers in SD, I dont see the Chiefs winning this game - Hell, I imagine it will be pretty ugly. 3. Rams - 1 reason, Bradford. 4. Tennessee - CJ + Moss? Really?

The Faid could easily go 6-0 in the division. There isn't a balanced offense in the division and they seem to have gotten it together mentally against the run the last couple of weeks. They were missing half their impact players and still kicked KCs ass. Everybody here seems to be under the assumption that yall will easily beat them in week 17 but they always play well here and they'll likely be much healthier. The faid also have a recent history of playing very well on the road in late season games They already beat Denver by 50 They got lucky against the Chargers but the Chargers don't match up well against them. Those games are always close and the Faid is much more physical along both fronts so that could go either way. Either way I wouldn't be at all surprised by a 5-1 or 6-0 division performance by the Faid.

B_Ambuehl
11-10-2010, 01:14 PM
Yes, they were very shorthanded and KC shoulda won that game easily. The officials and a good portion of Raider players tried to give you the game the entire day but you wouldn't take it. Give credit to the guys who got it done. They kicked your ass physically at the line of scrimmage. Wiegmann and Waters didn't want no more. They had no offensive weapons but still moved the ball easily enough. Their entire defense revolves around Asumogha and even with him out and leaving slapdicks sitting out on an island they made Cassell and this receiving look like what he is. It was an ass kicking effort by a shorthanded team and I'd be concerned about facing that team again with their guys healthy.

jd1020
11-10-2010, 01:22 PM
The officials had bad calls both ways... 1 holding call for Hali? Really? He was get choked all day long. If anything the officials gave the Raiders a second chance by calling a holding penalty on a player not even making contact with a receiver. Then 2 plays that stopped the clock when the Raiders were lining up to spike the ball at the very end of regulation.

If anything the Chiefs were just as banged up. Charles 10 carries? Not on a healthy day. McCluster out. It's clear McCluster is the X factor with these last 2 games. Barely beating the Bills and losing to the Raiders?

B_Ambuehl
11-10-2010, 01:27 PM
Stop making excuses and acknowledge you got your ass kicked by 2nd tier players. How do you think the Chiefs would have fared without Moeaki, Bowe, Dorsey, DJ, and Flowers?

Those are the chiefs equivalent of Oakland not having Zach Miller, Louis Murphey, John Henderson, McClain, and Asomugha.

Think about that for a minute.

jd1020
11-10-2010, 01:30 PM
Sorry but you are a moron if a 3 point victory in OT is an ass kicking, the Broncos game was an ass kicking. They got shut out the first half. They outplayed the Chiefs in the second half with help from a lapse in the Chiefs special teams. Nevermind that on that play theres a Chief next to Ford when he cut through the hole with exposed shoulder pads. Holding? Or the Chiefs punt return called back by a block from the side called a block in the back. Yup... ass kicked.

Go back to your own board, fool.

1 of the 2 clock stopping plays you mentioned was due to a chief player getting injured, not the refs favoring Oakland. And no, the chiefs were not just as banged up as the Raiders. We were missing our starting QB (Bruce Gradkowski), our 2 top receivers (Zach Miller and Louis Murphy) and our best defensive player Nnamdi Asamough). I heard no report of Charles being injured/not fully healthy until after the game, was he injured going into the game of did he get hurt during the game?

Yes the Raid was beaten up. Of coarse they did not have some key players. But do you really think Ford would have even been targeted in the passing game if Miller was in the game? I dont think so. Given he would have had the td regardless.

All it was was a MUST win at home for a .500 team. I would take desperation over talent anyday. Three games does not a season make. But good for you guys. I forgot how much i hated the raid until this last sunday.:cuss:

We had another thing working in our favor, which was that Heyward-Bey was healthy and on the field. It hurts to not win when you have that kind of advantage.

You dont get emotionally invested in a team yet you spend time browsing boards. Makes sense. Bandwagon fans are always funny. Sound like a Broncos fan trying to spread the pain of getting truly molested, IMO. 1. You are calling the Raiders "Faiders" and someone not emotionally tied to a rival team doesnt do that. 2. You obviously arent a Chiefs fan. 3. You wouldnt be on here talking about getting ones ass kicked if you were a Chargers fan. So all thats left are the Broncos.

I've been coming to this board since '04. I used to be a big chiefs fan when DV was coach but the day Herm was hired I quit caring. Since then the chiefs are just entertainment.

Football is a lot more fun when you can look at things objectively, which is impossible if you're all that emotionally vested in a team.

I use the 'Faiders' term out of habit. No hate meant with that.
