One word: Bowe.
I had a feeling SD could have a tuff season, but i didn't expect this kind of start. i thought they would win the division, but now, at best i only see them in 2nd AT BEST!
The Broncos are NOT a good team AT ALL!!! They've lost 2 games and won 2 by last second field goals... Denver could be the talk of the season right now with an 0-4 start. Don't be shocked if you see Denver bringin up the rear in the AFC west this year.
The Chiefs are playing "Carl Peterson" football....which was something i was hoping wouldn't happen...but obviously, we're right back to playing somewhere between 7-9 and 9-7 football....mediocre once again...fantastic.
That leaves the Raiders...who had a top 10 defense last year but no offense to speak of. Enter Culpepper. It looks like they may have lost their RB for some time and the offense could take a huge hit. i don't know much about their backup RBs. I do know that i'm happy that their 4th round pick Bush isn't on the active roster. He was a steal in the draft and will be a force in this league. Don't be shocked to see Oakland win the division title.
The only thing i see that could help KC win the division is that we have a bunch of home games coming up. We didn't go 0-4 to start, so we're not out of it yet and arrowhead is a hard place to lose if you're a Chief. I think what will decide whether or not the Chiefs see the playoffs is going to be those last 4 games. The Chiefs have been awful on the road in December. We've only got 7 more home games and IF we win them all, that's only 9 wins. That means we're gonna have to win at least 1 or 2 more on the road late in the year... if the Chiefs can win in December on the road, the only person who can be credited is Herm because none of our previous 3 or 4 coaches have been able to do that.
One word: Bowe.
It's really hard no matter what player's you have to dump all your coaches and expect much more then what they have gotten.
I really believe KC has a chance to finish 10-6ish.
I am really looking forward to the next 2 year's esp. the 2nd year with Brodie with a full year under his belt.
And these Charger fan's are whinning little beaches!
All they wanted to say today was "we lost it you didnt win anything" blah blah blah.. I hate living in san diego only becauace thier fan's are a-holes!!!!!!
Last year after the KC game here I got jumped 3 times walking to truck and I never even looked at anyone or said anything!
The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.
He calls himself a Chiefs fan and then says the faders will win the division.
Just blow him off... either he will start making intelligent statements that people will respond to, or just go away ....
If we keep improving at the rate we are, I think we could possibly end up 12-4. I know thats optimistic, but our D is definately clickin. And our offense looks like they are starting to get a feel for eachother. With this win @ San Diego they know now they can beat just about anyone anywhere. This game was huge!
6 of the next 8 are at home...
After that stretch will will probably be 9 and 3.
If we can stay healthy we will win the division, and have HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE!!!!!
The Pats and Colts have an even tougher schedule than us this year, so we have a VERY good chance at winning it all, because there is no one in the NFC that can beat us!
We were robbed in Chicago.
...and for those who think CP football WILL get us deep into the playoffs need to wake up and pay attention... hell, it's only been 20 years!
i know y'all are all excited about a win against a struggling SD team, but look at our record...we're playing .500 football. We lost to a Chicago team that just lost to the Lions (a team that is in the top 5 in turnovers and points allowed). and it's not like we just destroyed our opponents in both wins either.
Hell, we needed a big play from our mascott to get the crowd back in the game last week. Wonder if the Patriots or Cowboys needed that.
