AFC West Predictions


1) San Diego Chargers – 11-5

The biggest question surrounding the Chargers is whether Philip Rivers has enough arm strength to keep defenses from cheating up on Ladainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates. If he does the Chargers can make some noise in the AFC. Their front seven on defense is terrific and the secondary should get better with rookie CB Antonio Cromartie. Coach Marty tenses up in big games and becomes too conservative but his team is always prepared to play in the regular season.

2) Denver Broncos – 10-6

We worry that Denver’s addition of Javon Walker on offense will be offset by the losses of Mike Anderson and tight end Jeb Putzier and the existence of Jake Plummer. We’re also not sold that the Denver defensive line made up of former Cleveland Browns can duplicate last season’s success. Putting all that negtaivity aside, this is still a well coached, balanced football team who should win its fair share of games.

3) Kansas City Chiefs 9-7

The Chiefs were built to out-score opponents and they still have a semi-potent offense. However, we sense slippage this year with a thin offensive line, an older Trent Green and a not so impressive receiving corps. The defense is getting better but still isn’t going to win games for you. They are better then average but not by much in a tough division.

4) Oakland Raiders 4-12

The Raiders are horrible. This might be the worst defense in the league. Aaron Brooks makes terrible decisions. Randy Moss wil be requesting a trade by week ten
