Where do we stand in the AFC West?

Let's take a look at the other teams in our division and where they stack up compared to us so far in the season.

San Diego Chargers (4-1)
Can anybody think of a more overrated team in the NFL at the moment? I sure as hell can't. Let's take a look at who they've beaten. Tennessee, Oakland, Pittsburgh (when Roethlisberger was doing his absolute best to throw the game) and San Fransisco. You know what, let's just give them the division already. Their front seven is brutal but they have absolutely no secondary. Their offense doesn't scare me, Rivers hasn't had to play under pressure yet and Tomlinson cannot rush against good defenses. They're frauds, pretenders, and they'll be exposed soon enough.

Kansas City Chiefs (2-3)
The Chiefs could easily sneak up on people if they can steal a game or two here before Green comes back. Their defense has finally improved after years of promises from their front office and coaching staff. Herm Edwards isn't the best gameday coach I've ever seen but he is a great presence in the lockerroom. The fact that he's been able to keep everyone on the same page after losing Green speaks volumes to that. Larry Johnson is struggling behind a weakened offensive line, and they don't have any impact wideouts but they could pose a threat if they can hang on over the next few weeks.

Oakland Raiders (0-5)
This is quite possibly the worst professional football team that I have ever seen play. They're completely undisciplined and led by probably the worst gameday coach in NFL history. They do have talent on the offensive side of the ball, excluding their horrible offensive line (Robert Gallery is one hell of a bust. They need to move him back to guard and try to hide him).

Here's the thing about Oakland now. Is beating them even enjoyable at this point? It's not even a rivalry currently, Oakland has no shot against us. I was at the game on Sunday and obviously I along with everyone at Invesco was fired up for beating the Raiders, but in hindsight it just doesn't have the affect that it did when they were decent.
