You know I was reading the paper this morning and they had Oakland finishing lastin the division. That really pisses me off. I'm glad everyone's overlooking us because we have a waybetter team than anyone gives us credit for. I can't wait for Monday. We're gonna stomp a mudhole in those super f

Thats how Butch Coolidge made his fortune, letting everyone underestimate him.
The opportunistic use of a Katana sword in a pawn shop, didn't hurt matters either...
As a die hard fan, I hate to admit it, but they could be right. Maybe not last, but I don't know how we can end up even at 3rd. Manning looks great. Until he doesn't get up from a hit or shows any signs of slowing down, he is stil a great QB. Remember, he could have played last season towards the end. (PS, when Brady went down for the season a couple years back, people said the same stuff. "He won't come back, blah blah blah. Still came back and I'd trade the whole team to get him). KC looks solid with everyone back healthy. SD, well they are the only that haven't looked so good, so we will see.
As far as our beloved Raiders, well....I feel that CP3 is a chemistry QB. His misses are very close to where the WR should be or where he thinks the WR should be. Those turn into INT's. I don't think he has had the time with D-Moore which I believe will cause turnovers quite a bit. NO time with the WR's. All in all, I don't think we can get more than 8 wins this year, IMO. I'm picking 9 or 10 for Denver, then the remaining teams will all battle between 6-8 wins. Sad sad situation. THe difference is our upside. Screw this year, but next year..WATCH OUT!

Pure ignorance... These people have no idea how much changin our DC and coach will impact the organization. We are still an 8-8 team, but there is no reason we should not be extremely competitive this year. My guess is we will be a second half of the season team as it will take time for our OL to gel in the ZBS, our WR's are young, and the defense is actually real....
^ I agree! This team has too many question marks to really make an assesment to believe they merit a 1st place finish. Lets be honest, we all know that Palmer is a turnover machine, McFadden hasn't played a full season in the league, and the Wide Receivers are not that good. Moore has potential but who else can we count on...
Coming to an ACC court near you.
That's okay...let everyone under estimate us.
As to the OP - who cares? The only thing pre-season rankings / polls / power ratings, etc. show us every year is how little the 'experts' know.
Indy, Minnesota and Miami could win their divisions this year. Sound crazy? I would have said the same thing last year about Denver and San Fransisco.
