How was the West won?
Not very bloody easily, and this year will be no exception.
Wade McElwain and Ryan Cull are actually torn on this one, which always makes for good betting.
Let’s start with the returning Kansas City Chiefs, who were humbled in the AFC by the Patriots last season.
Is there any way to expect the same won’t happen again this year?
The Chiefs are fierce, but losing Kareem Hunt and the debacle around Tyreek Hill might make this team a bit unfocused.
Ryan is confident that they will bounce back with full force, but Wade is more sceptical.
The Chiefs have a fear of being successful in the playoffs, and Wade sees that happening again this year.
Also, Patrick Mahomes threw too many no-look passes last year, so it will be hard to see how he keeps that up this year.
The Broncos are the epitome of a dysfunctional family.
Joh Elway struggles every year getting that perfect balance of offence and defence, so how will they put together a string of wins, if they can’t even figure out their QB situation?
Wade & Ryan have them around a 500 team.
Sure, they might spoil a few parties, but the real spoiler will be the stench that comes from their own inner rot.
The Raiders have had some ‘hard knocks’ as of late.
Jon Gruden is determined to make something of this team before they bounce off to Vegas, but will Antonio Brown be a distraction?
Can Derek Carr forge the focus of this team into winning, or will they be more focused on whining?
At any rate, they will be entertaining to watch…even if it’s them imploding.
And the Chargers. Are they in LA? Are they in San Diego? Do they even have any real fans?
Phillip Rivers isn’t getting any younger, and with 37 kids to feed-he is going to be determined to win something this year.
Wade thinks that they have a real chance here to finally face off against the Patriots.
Melvin Gordon is the real conundrum in the mix, and they need to get all eyes facing forward if they want to win it this year.
