AFC West Run Down

Lane Kiffin and the Raiders

San Diego Chargers: A year after making it to the AFC championship the Chargers kept their nucleus together for the most part which is hard to do in today’s game. The only departures of note were FB Lorenzo Neal and CB Drayton Florence. They were both replaced with younger more athletic versions of them in CB Antoine Cason out of Arizona and FB Jacob Lester out of LSU. So one should only expect the Chargers to be more successful this season with another year with their new coaching staff. Possibly the most talented team in the NFL. The AFC west crown is merely a formality of playing the schedule for the Chargers. This could be the division clinched the earliest clearly the class of the west.

Season prediction: 12-4


Denver Broncos:
Mike Shanahan lately has adopted the Carl Peterson philosophy of acquiring stop gap win now free agents but he has not been as successful as Carl was at that game. His only deviation from the blue print has been his attempt to develop Quarterback Jay Cutler. This season the Broncos have brought in DT Dewayne Robertson former # 6 pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. Also brought in was receiver Darrell Jackson from Seattle who will be 30 before the season is over and Champ’s brother boss from the Lions to be their OLB. Also Shanahan acquired two players from the Chiefs. Receiver Sammie “ No Hands” Parker and Casey Wiegman. Does signing any of the Chiefs cast aways make sense for any team?

Season Prediction: 7-9


Oakland Raiders:
This off season the Raiders may have been the most aggressive team in free agency . Signing big name free agents to big time contracts. Acquiring receiver Javon Walker from the Broncos and speedy CB DeAngelo Hall from the Falcons. Also getting the best running back in the nation in Darren McFadden. It all matters not this team is in shambles from top to bottom. From a head coach in Lane Kiffin with no real authority who was asked by owner Al Davis to sign a resignation paper but refused. And the defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was asked to leave by the head coach only to be brought back by Al Davis. The Raiders have an absurd amount of talent but this situation is not conducive to winning.

Season Prediction: 5-11
