Not that we’re scared, but we’d rather not see the Denver Broncos (or any other team) find a way to bring these coaches into the AFC West.
If there’s anything that we learned in the 2022 calendar year as football fans within Chiefs Kingdom, it is that nothing should worry us whatsoever regarding moves related to other teams within the division. The AFC West has belonged to the Chiefs for the last seven full seasons, and if there was ever a year for the Denver Broncos, L.A. Chargers, or Las Vegas Raiders to upend K.C., this was it.
As it turns out, the Chiefs dominated them all.
So one year after watching Davante Adams, Chandler Jones, J.C. Jackson, Khalil Mack, and Russell Wilson enter the West (and accomplish absolutely nothing), our goal is to remain unphased no matter what news comes across the wire this offseason.
Still, that doesn’t mean we want to see the Chiefs’ primary rivals get any better. For all of their losses this season, the Broncos’ defense was good enough to carry a contender if only Denver wasn’t saddled with a disaster at head coach. The Raiders have very good players on both sides, and most games were within one score. The Chargers remain a total mess in terms of health and coaching—a never-ending story out of SoCal.
This year, we’re going to see a few new faces enter the division as coaches are hired to take the place of those let go this winter. Again, we’re not scared of anyone, but if you’re asking, we’d rather not see any of the following in the AFC West in 2023.
