3 reasons why the Denver Broncos can win the AFC West
Three reasons Denver Broncos can win AFC West in 2022
2. Denver has the most complete roster
Denver’s roster is the most complete in the division. I think some people are afraid to be too complimentary of the Broncos since they’ve been bad since I was still in high school, and I’m finished with graduate school now.
There’s no denying the names on paper are more favorable to the Denver Broncos having the strongest roster.
The Chargers have the second-best roster in the division, but they have severe questions at right tackle, and inside linebacker, and have an overall weakness of quality depth.
Take a look at their roster. It’s very top-heavy, and perhaps is a reason why they didn’t make the playoffs in 2022.
Denver, I think we can confidently say, has a deeper roster at most every position, which is needed as the season drags on.
As for the Chiefs, I think Denver’s roster additions this offseason allow them to have a stronger roster than Kansas City.
The Chiefs have a ton of questions on defense. They didn’t re-sign Tyrann Mathieu, released inside linebacker Anthony Hitchens, and re-signed Frank Clark, who turns 29 this offseason and hasn’t exactly been a pass rush force for them.
The Chiefs need a ton of help on defense, not to mention their uninspiring stable of running backs, and wide receivers who now scare absolutely no one since they traded Tyreek Hill.
The Chiefs’ receivers feature JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore, Josh Gordon, Corey Coleman, and Cornell Powell, among a few others who may not make the team.
Their running backs feature Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who is turning out to be not the best use of a first-round pick, Ronald Jones, who is solid, and Derrick Gore.
Outside of Travis Kelce, who turns 33 this season, and Patrick Mahomes, who threw 13 interceptions in 2021, the Chiefs’ offense shouldn’t be nearly as scary as they were in the past.
The Raiders also had themselves a good offseason with the additions of Davante Adams and Chandler Jones. However, their defense was 26th in points allowed, and their offensive line has a ton of questions outside of Kolton Miller.
It’s OK to be confident in the Denver Broncos roster. I think it’s the best in the division, and one of the best in the league.
