    So, in essence, Don Banks is saying that the entire AFC West will regress in overall record, or stay stagnant. :icon_huh:

    I still think Denver is heavily going to regret getting rid of Trevor Pryce and Mike Anderson
    they lost their primary runner who really could shoulder the load and their primary pass rusher (the front four can't get pressure except through blitzing).

    He should change his name to Don Bunks.

    Denver is going to change QB's midseason because Plummer is playing so bad, yet they are still going to win the division and finish 11-5? WTF?

    In essence he is saying that only Oakland will improve from the previous season. :icon_huh:

    Denver -> 13-3 in 2005 to 11-5 in 2006
    San Diego -> 9-7 in 2005 to 9-7 in 2006
    Kansas City -> 10-6 in 2005 to 8-8 in 2006
    Oakland -> 4-12 in 2005 to 5-11 in 2006

    As Trumpie would say, dude needs to grab his nutsack from his wife's purse and make some testosterone-filled predictions. None of this vaginally-induced vacillation, *MAAAANNNN*.

    the bottom line is its foolish to predict how well the Chargers will do this year, I belive they have a top 5 defense, the best running back in the NFL, the best TE ever to play the game, a SOLID recieving core, a decent Oline, but its all on the shoulders of the most important player on the field Philip Rivers.
    The Chargers at WORST will be 8-8, due to an easy schedule, but i can see them doing as well as 12-4 if Philip even resembles DrewB in the slightest.

    Denver is good, the team to beat.
    KC is WAY WAY WAY overrated.
    Oakland is in a rebuilding process, the worst thing that could happen is they are so bad that they pick up Brady Quinn next year.

    Agreed.

    I'm officially sick and tired of the talking heads and prognosticators.

    Time to prove it on the field.:icon_beerbang:

    Pryce they will miss. The loss of Anderson won't be a blip on the radar. The Donks change RBs like underware and never notice a difference.

    The big thing is none of hte current backs are backs that were capeable of carrying the load. Last year it was Anderson with Bell and Dayne providing support. Now T Bell and Dayne back up M Bell and there's no guarentee that he can take the load. In all likeliness your right but I personally think Anderson was the best back besides Portis that the Broncos had after Davis retired. Besides I"m being optimistic the bronks will have a piss poor running game :icon_shrug:

    If the Broncs creat to much of a QB controversy over Cutler and Plummer, it could get ugly. Players will start taking sides. Thats what im optimistic for.
    What do u think about KC's rating, finally sombody recognized that they are WAY WAY overhyped. LJ will struggle this year mark my words.
