    Power Rankings: Week 1

    1. [​IMG]1-0 (1-0)
    Hard to argue with a 5-1 record in the division last year, with the only loss coming in Week 17 after the Chiefs had long since checked out. A 14-2 record before losing to eventual Super Bowl Champion Patriots, leaves little doubt who runs the AFC West. As the patron saint of TSO, Ric Flair, once said, "To be the best, you've got to beat the best. WHOOOOOOOO!"
    Week 1 update: Started off on the right foot with a win while the other three AFC West teams lost.

    2. [​IMG] 0-1 (0-0)
    This might surprise some people, what with Denver finishing below the Raiders in last year's standings, but the Broncos have added some key pieces, most notably CB Chris Gamble to replace the retired Champ Bailey, to build a monstrous defense. A huge Week 2 matchup against the Chiefs will be an early indication of whether or not the Broncos are the real deal.
    Week 1 update: Keller, when he's not Kellering, is a tough opponent and the Broncos were within a score.

    The Raiders are talented, no doubt about it, but they're putting their fate in the hands of a rookie in Number 1 Overall Pick, Sam Farris. The Raiders traded up to acquire Farris and we'll know soon whether or not he was worth the picks. The pieces are there for the Raiders, but the question is whether or not they can add up to a winner.
    Week 1 Update: A loss to the 12-4 Miami Dolphins, by a single point, would seemingly give the Raiders hope for the season.

    This may seem too low for a team as talented as the Chargers but their defense is going through a new scheme and Rivers doesn't have a receiver, outside of the aging Antonio Gates, to be able to take pressure off the running game. While the Chargers will start off in the cellar, they could make a run with some help.
    Week 1 update: An early loss to the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in Week 1 did them no favors, however.

    To follow this, Denver was up 14-0 with 17 seconds left in the 1st half and I threw a fuggin pick 6 to give Buffalo & that home crowd every bit of momentum, then I threw another pick 6 along with 2 more int's and we shit the bed...... about like that one time I played you and shit away the 21 point lead :doodie:

    Good stuff for the blog though (y)

    Three separate games. At no point in any of the three was I behind. So after three desyncs do I lose the fucking sim? But of course.

    Fucking EA sometimes, I swear.
    Welp looks like my AFC West fiefdom is over.

    It was dumb, simple as that. I think only 1 of the 3 desync's was caused by a hit stick. Like I said in the party, I wish that 2nd game would've counted. That junk was going to be epic

    Traitors and communists everywhere!

    Yea it was. And it was also the furthest progressed of all three.

    Riiiiiiight...

    I go from 2-3 with a 1-1 record against the division leader to 1-4 with an 0-2 record against the division leader. Makes an AFC West title all but impossible.

    An early loss to TEC, plus two losses while out on vacation did me no favors.

    The Raiders have fumbled on their opening possession EVERY game this season, often with the first set of downs. None of which have been recovered by them. I tell you it's a thing of beauty.
