The Broncos, the 2013 media darlings, are in second place in their division, despite putting up unparalleled FF/Madden type numbers.

It's amazing what a really good defense can still do these days.  A last place schedule doesn't hurt either.

 

I think what's craziest about the Chiefs is how bad Romeo Crennel must have been.  An offensive-minded coach like Andy Reid comes into most of the same pieces on defense and a 2-14 team becomes a defensive juggernaut.

 

Also, the media is officially in mourning since both Brady and Manning lost.

Romeo oh Romeo...yes. He was very bad.

 

The further irony is that while the Chiefs definitely have a monster D, they have a very pedestrian offense. Reid has always been able to win big in the regular season/in a shaky division. But like Schotty, he folds like a cheap suit in the post season because then he's up against the real big boys. It'll be interesting to see how things play out when the first place Chiefs go head to head with the second place Broncos.

I'm not on board with the Chiefs yet. Their defense is very good but they really haven't played anyone yet except Dallas. Let's see how they look against Denver and the Colts. Who by the way are the only tough opponents all year on their schedule. They could go 13-3 without really beating anyone of substance.


Pessimism is just an ugly word for 'pattern recognition'.
