Around The AFC West: Al Davis, Nnamdi Asomugha And Josh McDaniels

We're taking another zip around the AFC West this afternoon to see what our blogs are saying. It's looking like another boring day for Chiefs news. Here's what the rest of the West is saying.

Chargers fans at Bolts From The Blue are talking about a couple of moves involving the AFC West. First of course is the Al Davis press conference on Tuesday. I like this line to end the story about new head coach Hue Jackson: "....he should be around until at least 2012. Check out the story but what out for the photo of Al Davis. Yikes. They're also talking about Josh McDaniels to St. Louis calling this potentially bad news for the Chiefs because he would have been a good fit. They're also talking about turnovers -- something the Chiefs did very well in during the 2010 season. The Chargers were 24th in the league in turnover differential so they offer up some suggestions to fix that.
Meanwhile Mile High Report writes that it looks like the Broncos could be moving back to a 4-3 defense under John Fox. For at least one year while they transition (again), that could mean some more struggles for the Broncos defense. The trend these days is to switch to the 3-4 defense so it's becoming a little more difficult to find the type of players you need for the system given more competition.

Oakland Raiders fans at Silver And Black Pride are talking about the Al Davis press conference on Tuesday. 32 percent of their readers said in a poll that the Nnamdi Asomugha talk was the most interesting part of it all. Davis said during the press conference that he had a chance to trade Asomugha last year but he chose to stay in Oakland. He also hinted that the Raiders would have cut him if his contract hadn't avoided. They also look at Al Saunders as an offensive coordinator candidate (which sounds like it'll happen).
