My point, which is sure to be anticlimactic at this point, is that Denver or Oakland can win the AFC West if they split with all conference teams. KC cannot. A lot of us have been looking forward to a real dogfight in the AFC West [I include myself in that group]. But the arrival of parity does not bode well for our playoff aspirations.
I agree with the poster [sorry, lousy memory] who said that there will be no Wild Card team from the AFC West. We Chiefs fans have looked to the games against the non-conference teams and agonized at our tough schedule. But the determination as to whether we enter post season play will be made within the AFC West.
I think we can sweep San Diego, Leaf or no Leaf.
On paper, we should be able to sweep Seattle, but Holmgren out-coached Gunther twice last season. Has Holmgren gotten any dumber? Is Gunther any smarter?
We are fairly evenly matched with Denver and Oakland. Each has a specific area of the Defense we can attack, and neither has a QB to inspire fear [a common ailment in the AFC West]. Mile High is a tough, tough venue. I personally feel better about our chances for an Oakland sweep than a Denver sweep.
