I become more amazed the more I see people suggesting the Raiders might win the division, or some saying they probably will. I mean, have you even looked at their schedule? Saying SD is gonna make a run and do it is one thing, that's very possible, even though I'd argue it's not probable IF KC can manage to win 10 games. The Raiders schedule is:

BYE
@PIT
MIA
@SD
@JAX
DEN
IND
@KC

To make this more simple for those who lack math skills, I'll make the poll choices their record in the final 7 games only. I'm leaving out 7-0 and 0-7 because I want to.

I'd say 3-4. I think San Diego goes 6-1, so KC can only lose 2 more games IMO.

I hope I'm wrong, but I see them going on another late season run and finishing 10-6.

No ****'n way...

As much as I hate to agree with the fact SD could easily go 6-1, I think I have to. I wouldn't say it's a sure thing, because they could easily slip up in more than 1 game. The worst part about it is I could see them winning @IND. However, I really don't think this is the same Chargers team as in years past when they've done this, but my god is their remaining schedule a joke. I have a feeling we're REALLY gonna be rooting for Cincy come week 16 in the SD @ CIN game.

Yep. The losses to Oakland and Houston are going to haunt us for the rest of the season.

Same as I said Monday. Oakland finishes 8-8 with wins vs Miami, Jacksonville, Denver

San Diego loses only to Indy and finishes 10-6

To be honest, the fact we're able to have all this conversation and get pumped up for every single Sunday the rest of the season is something we should all be happy about. In a sick sort of way, I'm glad Oakland's a part of it too.

SD has lost to SEATTLE, ST. LOUIS, and Oakland.

If anything SD has shown they're every bit as up and down as Oakland...

Well half of me agrees with you, not just because of what you've said but because they just don't seem like the same team as last year and did go from 2-3 to 13-3 and 5-5 to 11-5 in 2007. The other half of me looks at their joke schedule, the fact they've played well at home this year (most remaining games are at home), and the meaningless theory that they're gonna do what they did in 07 and 09.

53 players x 3 felonies each = 159 felonies?

Thats my inclination as well.... but thats too boring. The injury situation cannot be predicted, for instance - will Indy be recovered by the time they travel to Oaktown? They're pretty beat up this season. Lost to the Jags. Just barely beat Dallas. Will the Raiders be recovered by the time Indy shows up? Raiders were so beat up they just barely beat KC. Indy winning @Oakland will depend on how those two teams heal up. Rumor is that John Henderson & Zach Miller & Chaz Schilens & Louis Murphy & Rolando McClain will be ready to meet Pitt after the bye. Steelers just put starting left tackle Max Starks on IR. Oakland beat the Steelers last year @Pitt with a worse team than they now field. It is possible that Oakland takes 1 of those 2 games.

P.S. I voted 3-4

That is a cake schedule for SD. I can see them winning them all, even Indy.

I voted the Raiders go a remaining 2-5.

One thing to look at w/ the Raiders remaining games is how big of a difference it might be going forward if they 4-3 opposed to if they go 2-5. Getting a couple big wins from here on out could go a long way with that team.

In all honesty I believe the Chiefs making the playoffs will hurt them in the end. 1. Pioli will have even more confidence in Cassel being the guy and wont even think about not paying him the ridiculous bonus he doesnt deserve. 2. They gaurentee themselves a high draft pick which eliminates any possibility of getting Baldwin or a potential starting QB. I'm putting the Chiefs at a finishing record of 9-7 with the Chargers winning the division. That would give the chiefs a 15-20 pick and would give them a shot at landing Baldwin who looks alot like Fitz.
