    Chargers 9-7, best team to not make the playoffs. Chiefs one and done.

    AFC West sucks.

    Shampoo, rinse, repeat.

    great minds think alike . It's like opposite poles of a magnet and electrons. We are repelled by the negative Dean pole, attracted to the postive Gruden pole. :D I think you are a neutral electron, a neutrino, don't like Dean, don't like Gruden.....so you are confused.:helm1: So in your confused state you can't escape the Carson electrical field :bolt2::helm1::bolt2:. :eek:We gotta figure out how to get you fully toward the positive pole. ;)

    Broncos seem to be taking bigtime steps this offseason to get back into the competition. QB was the biggest move obviously but they had, by almost all analysts, one of the best if not THE best draft of any team. I'm not sold on Vance Joseph. Not sure that guy is cut out to be a HC. He'll be on the hot seat of they don't improve this year. John Elway is not gonna be patient very long.

    1. Chargers--They were already the best team in the AFCW by the end of 2017 and they improved more than any other team in the division by getting Lamp back, signing Pouncey, signing a reliable albeit not spectacular kicker, and significantly upgrading what was already the best defense in the division. Some pundits are now considering the Chargers as a serious Super Bowl contender. They will likely go through the regular season at about 11-5. (Looks more like 13-3 on paper, but with so many expected wins, an unlikely loss or two is much more likely by sheer number of chances for it to happen.)

    2. Chiefs--The Chiefs got significantly worse this offseason with the loss of Smith and Peters, but were significantly better going into this offfseason than the Raiders and Broncos, who had nowhere to go but up. The Chiefs have matched up well against the Chargers in recent years and could get a win against them that the other AFCW teams are not likely to duplicate. Somewhere around 8-8 seems about right for them.

    3. Broncos--The Broncos did improve, but probably not by as much as some seem to be thinking. Keenum is overrated and has a weak arm. He benefitted from the league's best defense last year in points allowed. He should do worse in 2018 than he did in his outlier 2017 season. The Bronco defense is not what it was several years ago, though it will still be good. 7-9 looks about right for them.

    4. Raiders--Gruden seemed out of his depth during the draft with reaches, risky draft picks and questionable trades. The Raiders were a mess after last year and improved less than two of the three other teams in the division, so it looks like the Broncos should overtake them for 3rd place in the division. With lots of roster holes still present, a finish around 6-10 seems likely.

    Costa Mesa is everyone's off-season darling. They are every year and how does that always turn out? With Alex Smith gone, they're the "safe" pick.

    I don't know about Gruden. I think he'll energize that organization but he's signing players like it's 2008 not 2018.

    Screw playing it safe though. The Broncos are my bold prediction because no one is going to give them or Keenum any chance.

    If the Rams are good, the Chargers won't win the division. If the Rams suck, the League will give the Chargers every benefit it can to get them deep in the playoffs.
