    And now, 43 NFL predictions -- one for every Super Bowl, including the one February

    Check out the predictions... some are very funny...


    21: AFC WEST (Order of finish)

    Gene's AFC West picks


    San Diego Chargers -- It's not like the Chargers are going to disappear because Merriman has a bad wheel. The D-line is a load, and Moss can tell you all about cornerback Quentin Jammer, while Peyton Manning can give you the skinny on the other corner, Antonio Cromartie. (Notice how I'm cleverly ignoring the fact that the Chargers gave up 296 yards to Minnesota rookie Adrian Peterson last November -- about 22 percent of Peterson's season total.) Philip Rivers proved he was a gamer, LT is healthy and so is Antonio Gates.

    Denver Broncos -- Still a year away from being football relevant. This is Cutler's third season, so expect a spike in his improvement. The numbers might not reflect it, but he's a guy to watch for the future.

    Kansas City Chiefs -- If Herm Edwards was alive, this would have never happened. Oh, wait, he is? The Chiefs were crummy last year; they'll be slightly below ordinary this time around. It's not necessarily Edwards' fault. The Chiefs got old, injured and dumb (some questionable coaching and management moves) at the same time. Remember what I said about Cutler and his third year? The same goes for Brodie Croyle.

    Oakland Raiders -- The Raiders have exactly three playoff appearances in the past 14 seasons. Make it 15. Whatever Al Davis is doing in Oakland, it isn't working. The Raiders have won 19 games in the past five years. They should be able to run the ball (Justin Fargas, Darren McFadden), but not much else. That's because JaMarcus Russell is still wearing quarterback training wheels. Their best player: cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

    The Colts are good enough, provided everything goes their way. Not likely, but still good enough.

    The Raiduhs are primed for a remake of the China Syndrome. Kiffen listening to Davis saw the limb out from behind him even as we speak, they are packed with overpriced and overrated players and they have a QB who hasn't slowed the game down yet. And they see us twice.
