I am just glad we start off this season at home against a team that has a lot of questions likes the Cheifs. Hopefully we can escape outta there with a win.

Also I am happy we went 2-2 in the preseason lol.

I always wish luck for the Raiders since I have plenty of family members who are Raiders fan (lol last years game against the Raiders was hilarious because everyone was making jokes about how horrible it was)

I know they play the Lions first. I also know the Lions seem like the media's 'Suprise Team' this year.

Well being that I follow the AFC West teams closer then some, here is my take on KC...
  • They have lost their 3 best O-Lineman over the last 2 years and haven't even tried to replace them with anybody but scrubs.
  • Their starting LT will be Will Svitek unless their is a miracle recovery by Damion McIntosh who has a knee injury. Svitek is a sixth-round draft pick in 2005 who has played offensive line in just one NFL regular-season game. Not only does he lack experience in the NFL but he only played defense in college.
  • Huard is a good QB when he has time to throw but given the line situation that's not going to happen.
  • Their defense is nothing special and their secondary is really bad. Look for Schaub to have a big game.
  • Herm Edwards is a joke as a head coach.

I expect KC to draft top 5 in 2008...

That will change when they lose by 14 points to the Raiders...

I always thought their secondary was one of their strongest points.

Ty Law
Patrick Surtain
Bernard Pollard
Jarrad Page

Maybe a little long in the tooth, but still pretty good.

I agree about Edwards. He seems like a great guy, but he doesn't come across as a good coach to me either.

Law & Surtain were good when younger but their play has dropped off with age, especially Surtain...

Last year as bad as our offense was they let Andrew Walter complete 27 of 37 for 226 yards; by far his best game while against everyone else he didn't even look like he deserved to be a starting QB.

I definitely expect a victory for the Texans. The biggest change this year is that the team is not going in there hoping to come out with a victory -- they expect one. It's kind of like Kubiak said in that luncheon speech. What you're hearing as the biggest difference in this team is the attitude. It will be a home game against a team with a lot of question marks.

This team believes they have the talent and cohesiveness to hang with anyone. Sure there will be bumps in the road and a bit of a learning curve at times, but I expect the team to be ready for this game as I'm sure they're just as tired (more) about hearing the Texan crap spewed by the national media.

PS - Does anyone know where the phrase "long in the tooth" came from? I'm only 29 but my teeth stopped growing a while ago.

When horses were sold, the teeth were checked to tell how old they were. As they aged, their gums receded and the teeth appeared to be longer.

Meaning
Old, especially of horses or people.

Origin

Horses's teeth, unlike humans', continue to grow with age. They also wear down with use, but the changes in the characteristics of the teeth over time make it possible to make a rough estimate of a horse's age by examining them.

There are various similar Latin phrases dating back to the 16th century. The gap between these and the first citation of the English version - in 1852, make it likely that 'long in the tooth' was coined independently from those earlier Latin sayings. That earliest citation is in Thackeray's, The History of Henry Esmond, Esq. and refers to a woman rather than a horse:

Team most likely to surprise

The Oakland Raiders are poised to make a dramatic turnaround under new head coach Lane Kiffin. Their defense was strong last season, but was undermined by a woeful offense that failed to score enough points. Moreover, turnovers by the offense consistently forced the defense to play on a short field.

But Kiffin appears to recognize that his D is capable of winning games single-handedly, so he's running a low risk offense that should keep the Raiders in games. If the defense plays at the same level as last season, the Raiders will win as many as eight or nine games this season.

I can't disagree with that post. I'm looking forward to watching the raiders D this season. All the best till we paly you. We'll try very hard to take care of business for y'all.

I think the kid is crazy for holding out. He is getting some seriously bad advise from his agents. This IS Al Davis. And Al Davis is just crazy enough to hold the kid hostage for a year and redraft him again in '08.
