    Neither the Saints or Chargers are going to the dance. New Orleans especially, that's just a ridiculous pick.

    Us going 8-8, on the other hand...

    ...at that game in 05 in Denver in which they WON. Really credible story there. I remember Champ returning that infamous INT for a touchdown. Remember, everyone has their opinion and that always changes as a season progresses when the cream rises to the top. Preseason picks usually make me laugh because it's usually off base somewhat.

    From the article

    AFC West

    1. San Diego (13-3) -- Nowhere will the gap between the first and second-place team be more pronounced than in the AFC West, which San Diego in essence has owned since 2004. With those two playoff victories of last January under their belts, the Chargers are much more confident, less mercurial team. And did I mention they're driven to beat the Patriots?

    2. Denver (8-8) -- We'll know plenty about these Broncos right off the bat, because they have home games against San Diego and New Orleans -- my two Super Bowl teams -- in Weeks 2 and 3. If they've made improvement, it's only marginal. The Broncos are 16-16 since winning the division in 2005, and more of the same .500 dance is on the way.

    3. Oakland (5-11) -- If second-year quarterback JaMarcus Russell blossoms in what will amount to his rookie season, the Raiders could surprise some people this year and make a move toward the middle of the pack in the AFC. But for a team that has had the reverse Midas Touch on personnel for the past five years, that's a bit to ask and hope for.

    4. Kansas City (3-13) -- Yes, it was a draft to remember, but then the preseason started and reminded everyone just how far Kansas City's rebuilding effort has to go. This year I can't even see the last-place Chiefs getting off to a hopeful getaway like last season's team, which was 4-3 en route to 4-12. It could be brutal from Week 1 on, when K.C. draws the dubious assignment of opening on the road in Foxboro.
    1.My question is does he know that Merriman aka the core of their defense will d*** near be hobbling with 2 ligament tears in his knee. But their offense should do well...
    2.Better O-Line,QB looks primed, RB's solid, D-Line pass rush subject, Run stop looking good, better LB's, CB the elite CB is still elite lol, Bly is okay, Safety can actually cover the pass, no disrespect to John Lynch
    3.The Faiders have no receivers even (BIG IF) if Russell does bloom. Like really all that have is a rookie RB who may or may not blossom, and an average at best QB.
    4. Chiefs are in rebuild mode, its gonna take them a couple of years to get to .500, IMO

    Yep, that's pretty much what you can expect from SI, Fox Sports, ESPN, etc. These guys cover too many sports to cover small market teams without a lot of flashy names. Most of their insight is drivel (but still entertaining to read).

    Don't underestimate the jags man, they were good last year and have made some big improvements over the offseason if they can stay healthy they have a good shot. besides once the playoffs come around anything could happen, if we make the playoffs I won't even rule us out I just think the jags are hungry and more than capable of getting the job done.

    Jacksonville isn't a lock by any means but don't underestimate them. They beat Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh twice, which includes a playoff game.

    He's right, though, we'll know a lot after those two games.
    yeah.. I think those games will be a good barometer as to how much we have improved and where our team is going or where they are at for sure.

    I think that's right. I personally think we will go 9-7, but then again I am biased. But if you look at our schedule there are 9 games that we are more than capable of winning as long as we don't scew the pooch like we did against Detroit last year.
