Idk wut makes people think peyton manning is gon leave 1 division to the next & just pick up where he left off. Wut everybody fails t remember is we swept the division in 2010 wit Campbell under helm & was on the pace 2 do it again lastyear until all the untimely injuries. We own our division, hands down ! Wit Mat Shaughnessy back we gon dominate like we was doing in the beginning of lastyear. All we gotta do is win our division & we're in there. U can't bank on peoples getting hurt every year. Sooner it just comes down 2 playing the game & manning or no manning, we're the big fish in the AFC west. Don't be surprised if our defense dominates this year. Remember I said so.

I don't think Peyton Manning is still in prime form but he can't be counted out. The only QB in our division that hasn't been to the pro bowl is Matt Cassell, so I'd say KC is out. I think the real Norv Turner has been showing up in San Diego the last few years and the Schottenheimer team is completely done, but Phillip Rivers has been a pro bowler and could be looking to rebound. Denver has been very inconsistant the last three years and the last two years Oakland has finally seen signs of life after 7 straight double digit losing seasons.

I'm gonna say it will come down to the Raiders and Broncos. I think momentum is definatly in Oakland's favor but the loss of critical depth like Michael Bush could really hurt us especially since Darren McFadden is notorious for getting injured.
