Daly Dose #146 The NFL overreactions

This week on the Dose we are gauging the overreactions from Week 1 of the NFL season! Are the New England Patriots in trouble? Are the Kansas City Chiefs a true contender? And are the Indianapolis Colts, and Jacksonville Jaguars going to be improved in 2017? We look at some of the biggest overreactions that we are hearing, and try to sift through what is actually true.

After a very entertaining week in college football, we are trying to piece together what we have learned so far. The Oklahoma Sooners are looking strong, the Clemson Tigers just keep rolling, and Lamar Jackson wants to win another Heisman trophy at Louisville.

Canelo Alvarez will square off against Gennady Golovkin this Saturday for the middleweight championship of the world, and we take a look at what could unfold in that fight.

Plus, we look at some past NFL overreactions, as we count down the Top 5 bad starts to a Super Bowl winning season!

The 2017 Daly Dose NFL Preview: The AFC West

AFC West

The AFC West might be the toughest division in the NFL. Any of these teams could win the division, and contend in the postseason. And any of these teams could collapse, and finish 6-10. And most of these teams could also actually be made up from the spawn of Chargers QB Philip Rivers.

afcwest1

1. Oakland Raiders

Predicted finish: 10-6

Last year, the Oakland Raiders returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2002, going 12-4 and giving the Raider faithful some hope for the future. QB Derek Carr is an MVP candidate, and DE Khalil Mack is one of the top defensive players in the league. Then again, this team lost to Brock Osweiler in the playoffs, and they are currently packing up for the move to Las Vegas. So the future may not exactly need shades.

2. Denver Broncos

Predicted finish: 9-7

Broncos VP John Elway knew he had to beef up his terrible offensive line, so he went out and took Utah OT Garett Bolles with his first draft pick. Elway has been fearless as a personnel man, selecting players like Brock Osweiler, Paxton Lynch, and Sylvester Williams with previous draft picks. Did we say “fearless”? Sorry, we meant “senseless”.

3. Kansas City Chiefs

Predicted finish: 9-7

The Chiefs won this division a year ago with a 12-4 record, but failed to advance in the postseason. That was nothing new for Kansas City fans, who have been waiting since 1969 to advance past the divisional round of the playoffs. Chiefs management decided they didn’t want to take any chances with another playoff loss this year, so they drafted QB Patrick Mahomes to split the locker room, and eliminate the possibility. Well played.

4. Los Angeles Chargers

Predicted finish: 7-9

The Chargers are a notoriously cheap franchise that balks at paying their players. They uprooted, and moved the franchise from San Diego after 54 seasons because the fans wouldn’t buy them a new stadium. They have fired quality coaches, and repeatedly screwed over their fans. Why is this such a snakebitten franchise without much in the way of true success? Karma is a crazy thing.

Are Bradshaw and Unitas even the best quarterbacks from their own franchise? And how do we go about comparing different eras effectively?

Beginning in the AFC, we are remembering some of the best passers in league history, and probably even a few players that you may have forgotten!
