Yeah the Chiefs are 9-0 and they have a great defense but are they really that good???

Well we’ll find out tonight as they play the 8-1 Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning.

So far the Chiefs have only beat a lot of sub par teams but tonight will be the test to

see if their offense can put up some points.

The defending Champs, the Baltimore Ravens travel to Denver to face Peyton

Manning and the Broncos to kick off the 2013-14 season.  The Ravens lost damn

near the whole defense along with WR Anquan Boldin after they showed Joe

Flacco the money so we’ll see how they play with the focus now being on their

offense after years of having a dominating defense…

The Broncos picked up another weapon for Peyton Manning in WR Wes Walker

and they also adding rookie RB Montee Ball from Wisconsin he has to show that

he can fill Willis McGahee’s shoes.  As Denver lost star LB Elvis Dumervil to the

Ravens and will be without their other star LB Von Miller to a six game suspension.

All in all this should be a great game between two of the top 5 AFC teams.

We’ll take the Denver Broncos 24-14

Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker told Sports Illustrated that Bill Belichick was hard on him toward the end of his six-year run in New England, chiding him in front of teammates in a way the coach hadn’t done previously.

“It was just kind of hard,” Welker told the magazine in a story that appears in this week’s edition, “one of those deals where you have to endure him, put up with him. … But he does it to everybody. It’s the way he is.”

Welker’s tenure in New England was already marked by its messy conclusion during the offseason, when the free-agent receiver joined the Broncos in a surprise move that resulted in a public squabble between Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Welker’s reps.

“There were only two places I was going to play [Denver and New England], in my mind,” Welker told SI.

“You always think you’re one of those players who will be in one place the whole time, one of those guys they’ll never let leave because you play hurt, do what it takes,” he said. “But it’s a different age. A lot of coaches, they like having younger guys. This game’s so tough on you, it’s all about, ‘How many more hits can you take?’ So they buy low, sell high. It’s a numbers game.”

Belichick disciplined Welker in early 2011, benching him for the first series of a playoff game against the New York Jets after the receiver made foot-related comments in a subtle dig at Jets coach Rex Ryan. Welker later said he regretted his comments.

Earlier this summer, Welker said he felt like he could be himself more with the Broncos than he did in New England, where Belichick instructs his players to say little to the media. Still, Welker acknowledged that even now in Denver he still thinks about his former coach when talking to reporters.

“When I’m answering questions from the Denver media, I’m not worried about what the Broncos’ people are going to think,” Welker told SI. “I’m worried about what Belichick will think. Isn’t that crazy?”

Welker was the most productive receiver in the NFL while with the Patriots, surpassing 110 receptions and 1,100 yards in five of his six seasons there.

He told SI he still is adjusting to the Peyton Manning-led offense with the Broncos.

“In New England, if the middle of the field was closed, I’d run a seam route,” he said. “It’s something I’ve been doing for six years now, so I have to teach my brain to do it the way he’s [Manning] expecting me to do it.”

The Denver Broncos have made a major splash in free agency, agreeing to terms with

wide receiver Wes Welker on a two-year contract.

Welker’s deal is worth $12 million, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports.

Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway tweeted the club’s

agreement with the former New England Patriot.

“Excited to have Wes join the Broncos. His production & toughness will be a great asset!”

Elway wrote.

The Patriots had been negotiating with Welker leading up to free agency, but the sides

could not find common ground on a deal. New England then began pursuing Rams free-

agent wide receiver Danny Amendola during the three-day negotiating window last week-

end.  The 31-year-old Welker played under the franchise tag and a $9.5 million salary for

the 2012 season and finished with a team-high 118 catches for 1,354 yards and six touch-

downs.  The team elected not to tag him this offseason. If they had, Welker would have

received an escalated salary of $11.4 million for the 2013 season.  Welker, the NFL’s pre-

mier slot receiver, has been a fan favorite in New England since he arrived via trade in

2007. His 672 receptions over six seasons (an average of 112 per season) since joining

the Patriots are the most in the NFL during that span. He became the first player in NFL

history with five 110-catch seasons.

Among Welker’s biggest supporters is quarterback Tom Brady, who helped the Patriots

clear $15 million in cap space over the next two seasons by restructuring his deal and

signing an extension.

Brady was willing to accept the deal, considered below market value because of the trust

that exists between the two-time Super Bowl MVP and the team. Brady felt that in giving

New England this cap flexibility, a source told ESPNBoston.com, he trusted the Patriots

would add the right players to finish his career with the best chance to win another champ-

ionship.

Just two days ago, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he hoped Welker would be “a Patriot

for life, just like Tom Brady.”

Welker had a team-high eight catches for 117 yards in New England’s 28-13 AFC Champion-

ship Game loss to the Baltimore Ravens.  Earlier in the day, Denver agreed to terms with

unrestricted free agent linebacker Stewart Bradley, who played last season for Arizona.

And the 2013 award for “best rant by a Patriots’ spouse after a season-ending loss”

goes to … .Anna Burns Welker.

Last year, Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bundchen told a group of heckling Giants fans

following Super Bowl XLVI that her “husband can not (effing) throw the ball and

catch the ball at the same time.”

After New England’s 28-13 loss to Baltimore in Sunday night’s AFC title game, the

wife of Patriots receiver Wes Welker went on the offensive against the Ravens’ Ray

Lewis on Facebook.

As the slightly blurry screengrab shows, Burns Welker decided she’d detail some of

the non-football related background of Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who will end

his lengthy career with an appearance in Super Bowl XLVII in two weeks.

“Proud of my husband and the Pats,” Burns Welker wrote. “By the way, if anyone

is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids, 4 wives. Acquitted for mur-

der. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!”

For accuracy’s sake, I’ll point out that Lewis did not have four wives, as he has never

been married. As for the rest of her statement, there are harsher things written about

Lewis on Twitter or Facebook after every Ravens playoff win. They just usually don’t

come from family members of NFL players.

UPDATE: Burns Welker apologized Monday, issuing this statement to Larry Brown

Sports:

“I’m deeply sorry for my recent post on Facebook. I let the competitiveness of the

game and the comments people were making about a team I dearly love get the best

of me. My actions were emotional and irrational and I sincerely apologize to Ray

Lewis and anyone affected by my comment after yesterday’s game.

“It is such an accomplishment for any team to make it to the NFL playoffs, and the

momentary frustration I felt should not overshadow the accomplishments of both

of these amazing teams.”
