    Wait, wait, I don't have a dog in this fight. I don't believe any game in the NFL is a gimmie. All you'd have to do is ask Brady how easy it was against the Chef's last year or for that matter ask Hardwick, Vasquez or Jamal if the Raiduds were just standing around on opening night.

    If that's the case (which it isn't) but if it was the Broncos still shouldn't be removed from Norv's.

    KC and Oak, yes, Denver no.

    They may not have been world beaters the past three years but they also haven't been the pushovers Oak and KC have been.

    But KC just beat the Steelers and the Raiders just beat the Bengals, do you think the Steelers and Bengals thought those were gimme games

    H8er, I don't believe there is such a thing as a gimme game.

    There's no such thing as a "gimme" game. If there was the "gimme" teams would go 0-16 every year.

    But, it's also not as black and white as with Ws and Ls as comparing the divisional records imply.

    True, they're not gimmes, but that doesn't negate the fact that beating Kansas City the past few years has not been as much of a challenge as it was when Marty was here.

    That's not to say KC has been a gimme the past three years, (if they were we'd be 5-0 against them in that time frame when we're not) they simply haven't been as formidable of competition.

    We all know B4L's hang up on Norv, AJ and... Well, the Chargers... There is no real reason to try and change that, he has his mind set and we cant change it. Believe me, I have tried.

    The man has delirium powered shields that reflect the most powerful logic torpedoes that can be hurled at it. The man is the Sith Lord of Norv hate. The Musilini of AJ Angst, and the Three Stooges of football logic... :lol: But he is still a member of our community. :tup:

    I would suggest just ignoring his takes where Norv, AJ are concerned and moving on. The majority of our little community here understand the point, and if not fully agreeing with it can agree to it.

    We just have to relax and hope B4L comes around...

    I didn't say they weren't formidable. I said they weren't as formidable.

    There's a difference.

    You can pretend that KC has been as good the past three years as they were the 5 years prior if it makes you feel better but it won't change the fact that they have been in the bottom of the barrel of NFL competition the past few years.
