tough between chargers and oakland. i'm going to go on a crazy order this year just because i like what oakland has done so far!
1 RAIDERS; on their way up. good draft, good (qb's)
2 chargers; what goes up must come down. it's over!
3 cheifs; are the patriots but not cordinated
4 broncos; coach is firing every starter.
anybody wanna bet?
RAIDERS 2010!!!

I think we have a chance to rise to the top of the AFC west. San Diego is falling after cutting ties with LT and KC may be on the rise or is Denver on a downfall with Josh McDaniels...I thought Denver was gonna be tough with McDaniels, but then all of a sudden they started falling and SD snagged the west from them despite not leading it all last season until the end. If Josh McDaniels gets things going his way in Denver, then they could be dangerous. LT may have been up there but his departure means lost leadership. I don't know what to think of KC...I'm not buying into the Raiders hype as much as I did the last several seasons because they've ended with disappointing results. I have seen some problems solved like sticking with a coach and cutting deadweight players, but there are still some unproven issues like run D and OL...it's still hard to be optimistic but that doesn't stop my prediction for the AFC west
1. Raiders...Rising back to the top with stability in the coaching and a good draft
2. Chargers...LT may be gone but Rivers and Gates are still there as well as a tough D
3. Broncos...had a good start but a rough finsih. Give McDaniels time and this team will be either very dangerous or fall to the bottom.
4. Cheifs...NO OL, Barely any D, and no targets for the QB; Jamal Charles will rack up fantasy points though.

LT is not that big of loss for SD. People are making it out to be a big deal...but he hasn't been as productive of late...they may miss his leadership a bit...but they have enough guys on that roster to more than compensate for it...its still SD's division to lose. Raiders fate will rest a lot on what our O-line can do. If we are getting time to make passes and allow our RB's flourish then we have a shot at the AFC West...if not we are in trouble again. It's a fine line...although we are getting better....we are an effective O-line from success....I think our Run D should be better...but its tough to say with a lot of new faces on D.
Once again its a weight and see season for the Raiders. I can't wait until we are back to EXPECTING a playoff run regularly. I think we are moving in that direction...just need to give it time.....

our team looked bad last year. opposing teams running through us. our (qb) was getting sacked often. his fault as well as our(O-line). but i have to say gradkowski made a difference over all! first, it was leadership. players played for him. sure, he had to scramble a bit but they played for him.(D-line) worked harder knowing that the (O-line) was on to something. we won a few tough games and we are onto fixing to stop the run. fate will determine on if our O-line gets better. a good nose guard will put the icing on the cake! until then our line is still not that far off but good enough to continue. players are heathy.we will see what h jackson has upgrated to fix the line with what we got! I'M NOT WORRIED!

I see no distractions this offseason and I've seen a lot of good decisions made. I really want to say that this will be the year, but I'm not getting my hopes up despite the fact that I'm tired of watching my team lose and I think that we've made a lot of good decisions this offseason that can only help us. Whether or not this will be the year soley rests upon the players and coaches. As a fan I give them my support to WIN in 2010!!!!!!!!!!

well, the cheifs are up! is sd second? cause i know we're third and i believe denver fourth? am i correct? our first afc west game will be sun oct 10th vs the chargers. we will play them right as we start to get tuned up for more wins. chargers looked not too bad vs cheifs cheifs. i think they only lost because of the rain. but, i could be wrong. chargers have had a few distraction within their team. i think we will be ready by the time we play them. pending on how we keep playing, we may make a fight for the top spot in the afc west. actually all afc west is playing okay. we played ugly but we won. and we keep getting better.#5,(LOL) "NO FEAR"
GO RAIDERS!!!

After two weeks, every Division is up for grabs. San Diego and Denver are scoring and that is key. If the Raiders or KC improves in this category, who knows who will end on top. One bonus for the Raiders is that their Defense plays better (almost dominant) when the offense is scoring. I am not sure you can say that about the other teams.

I didn't expect KC to be on top at this point but it's only week 3

It is only week three but, KC is much better than anyone thought. There is no reason they won't be in the mix towards the end of the season. It really is up for grabs at this point. I thin we are looking in the worst shape thus far. We barely beat the rams and got clobbered by the titans. and we should start Gradkowski but It wouldn't surprise me if Campbell starts to see if benching him lit a fire under him. Although I think Gradkowski just has the energy our team needs. It was a much different team the second half.

THE BRIGHT SIDE? broncos and chargers lost! the not so bright side is, we lost a game that was lost by a missed field goal. so that puts the cheffs at the #1 spot with 3-0. when they beat the chargers i felt they only won because the rain and being at home was in their favor. but no, it seems like they're for real. we were that close || to being in the second spot. and we blew it! hurray to the cheffs! i'm jelous! now we got the texans, chargers, frisco, broncos and so on. with gradkowski we can do it. he plays strong but the end zone needs more attention.
GO RAIDERS!!!

well, there was no lie the afc west is up for grabbs. and there is no wonder why the cheffs are up 3-0. true rummors are that cheifs (de) shaun smith has a reputation, what should we call this, a grabber. as in, he's been accused of grabbing apponents... down there. 9ers a daviswas placed with a personaal foul for going after smith in the 3rd qtr. davis, told comcast sportsnetbay area, "he tried to feel me, thats weird right? also alex mack (c) of the browns had that happen to him. he says he's still fired up about it!
the cheffs are 3-0! you'd think it would be the niners grabbing but?
