Bronco's manhandle the Chiefs again: and again and again. As a Chiefs fan I really wanted to stick it to Denver (or at least have our denfense show up to the game). Is Denver better than people thought or are the Chiefs worse?

My brother (a Coloradan) said, "They're doing it to us again," when we talked on the phone last night, and predicted the morning water cooler convos ("Hey, ya know, they don't look that bad, maybe they'll do something this year") and that they'd stumble into the wildcard ("Hey, ya know, we could win this thing") and then get humiliated by one of the AFC's better teams, probably in the first round. IOW, they may indeed be "better than people thought", but I dunno that that's the same as "good".

the problem in KC is the coach-- after this many years, he should understand the necessity of defense the problem in Denver is Jake the Snake-after this many years, he shouldn't make rookie mistakes. He didn't make that many last night, ergo, they won, but we've all seen Jake play like a champion, and like a chump, a week apart.

Watched it and was very impressed by Denver. They really don't seem to need too much to get to the playoffs. That is unless last nights game was just because of their opponent. K. C. looked horrible. Defense is what wins games. Good coaching wins games. It was funny hearing the BOOs everytime Kennison was involved in a play. What the hell, the moron deserves it. You can't tell your coach one day out of the blue, I don't want to play today. Especially for the money they make. In that division, I do believe that Denver may just take it. Oakland has better stuff this year, Seattle is always looking just above or below average and KC just looks aweful. If Denver can play half as good and better all year as they did last night, I think they will take the division. Should be a 2 way race there all year.

Seattle's in the NFC. I don't see either team as being capable of a long run in the playoffs (should either make it). Both are far too inconsistent.

I think that both problems exist. Denver is a good team. They've added some great defensive player in the past couple of years (Lynch, Bailey). Plus, Plummer is a good quarterback and it has taken a couple of years to lose the bad habits he had to learn in Arizona (Many were simply survival techniques). Also, while KC has a great offense, the loss of several key O-lineman were a huge hit to them because they are built around the strength of that line. Also, the "revamped" defense may have better players, but they are only as good as the man calling the plays. KC is need of some new leadership, especially on defense. They need a tried and true leader and need to get away from simply sticking with what they are used to. From what I saw, Denver is the better team.

Broncos are like the Rams, they look great one week and the next they are getting beat by suck butt teams. Jake Blunder will never, ever win a superbowl, garanteed, write it in stone. You could put Jake on the 85 bears and he would have found a way to make 21 potential studs lose the superbowl.

Dick Vermeil needs to learn that it's tough to beat the Broncos at home when you draw so many penalties that you're trying to drive to the end zone from Durango. Lord, that was ugly. And slow.
