AKKANtA* r r r AFC Battle Should Be Two Horse Race By TUB ASSOCIATED PRESS This season the American Â·"ootbaU Conference Western Division is expected to be a wfl'horse race between the Oakland Haiders and the Den- r er Broncos, The Kansas City Chiefs, who used to win or place in tills Â·ace, have finished out of the jlayoff money since 1971. This year, their veterans may be a ittle wiser, but also a- big year older. Last year, a h a n d f u l of the San Diego Chargers allegedly ailed their dope tesl and, al- ,hough the new regime of 2oach Tommy Prothro says hat slate is now clean, the Chargers still don't have the lorses to mount a serious chal lenge In 1974. Oakland Raiders The Raiders, after'their seventh division flag in eight years, have three quarterbacks .0 get them there. Bui one is moving on to the World Football League in 1976, the second is moving on to t h e . WFL in 1975 and the third is moving on in years. Â· Ken Stabler is leaving Oakland for the Birmingham Americans in 1976. Daryl Lamonica will play with the WFL footbal year sooner. And George Blanda will cross off his 47th birthday during this season. Blanda's age is really not a factor anymore because he's basically a place kicker now and a very competent one However, the defections of the other two could cause some morale problems. There will be no hard feel ings, however, if Stabler can duplicate last season's statis tics. The Oakland left-hande completed an amazing 62.6 per cent of his passes and threw fo 14 touchdowns, winding up a: the AFC's leading passer, fli surrendered only 10 inter ceptions. Wide receiver Fred Bilclni koff was fourth in the confer or 629 yards and seven touchdowns. Deep threat Haven Moses caught 26' passes, eight Little was out of the nee with 48 catches' and 6GO ards, Mike Siani, at the other ide reciever spot, grabbed 45 Moses caught. 2 asses for 742 yards and tight for touchdowns. nd Bob Moore rang up 34 re- Floyd options for 375 yards. coming Marv Hubbard, who bulled Is way past the 900-yard bar- ier in 1973, and the speedier Charlie Smith and Clarence Davis, who combined for over ,200 yards, are excellent al- ernalives to the pass. The Raider defense, which allowed the fewest points In the club's history in 1973, may gel i boost from Bu.bba Smith, for- ner All-Pro end who was side ined much of last year with Â£ knee injury. Smith showed he is regaining speed when, in pre season play, he blocked ane conversion kick by Phila delphia's Tom Dempsey and deflected another. Denver Broncos Denver Coach John Raltson concedes Oakland was the division's best club in 1973, with his ;eam only four points behind. "The Raiders are still our measuring stick of excellence n the AFC West," said Ralston, "and they were jusl four points better than us in two Barnes. Those four points put ihem into the playoffs instead of us." Ralston thinks this year he j has found those four points and then-some, ! "There's no question in our minds that we have the people On the 1974 squad to go all the way," said Ralston. The people Ralston is talkin about go by the names of John son, Hioses, Odoms and Little. to list a few. Charlie Johnson is 38 years old and a 13-year veteran. which means he knows a thing or two. However, Johnson, who completed 184 of 346 passes with 20 touchdown tosses, underwent postseason knee sui gery. Tight end Riley Odoms led Denver with 43 catches, good a threat . . . backfield with the ball or as a would-be pats receiver. Little rushel for 979 yards and 13 touchdowns, Ralston picked Ohio State's Randy Gradishat to plug a leak ut the linebacker position and off his preseason play against the falcons Sunday night, the Broncos canio up with a winner. All-Pro tackle Paul Smith and defensive end Lyle Alzado are stroirg pass rushers. Kansas CHy Chiefs Birthdays are not cause for celebration in the Kansas City camp. The Denver Broncos caught up with the Chiefs, 7-5-2, last year. Age however, has been creeping up on the Chiefs for several seasons. The Chiefs managed 231 points lasl ycai 1 . third worst in the conference. At 39, Lenny Dawson doesn't seem to have any more magic in his arm. He's still listed as Kansas City's top quarterback, even tough he missed eight games.
