AFC West K/P
 
Reading this reminded me how great the kickers are in the AFC West. :)

"I think this is the best kicking and punting division in football. Our top five guys could be a serious contender to be ranked No. 1 in any other division. Itís a power group."
1. Shane Lechler, Oakland: He is a special talent. Watching him boom punts is a thing of beauty.

2. Mike Scifres, San Diego: This guy is a superstar, too. Scifres is a placement artist.

3. Dustin Colquitt, Kansas City: Itís too bad he plays in the same division as Lechler and Scifres. Colquitt is a star in his own right.

4. Sebastian Janikowski, Oakland: He is getting better with age. Iím not sure he was worth the record contract Oakland just signed him to, but Janikowski is a weapon.

5. Nate Kaeding, San Diego: Itís a shame Kaeding is most known for his postseason woes. The guy is very good.

6. Matt Prater, Denver: Prater is a kicker to watch. He improved greatly in 2009 and he is terrific on kickoffs.

7. Ryan Succop, Kansas City: Donít look at his ranking as a negative. He is very good and he should be for the next 10-to-15 years. He showed a great leg as a rookie. Again, this is just a terrific class.

I don't see his ranking at 7th as a negative anyway.. he was a rookie and I wouldn't expect him to be higher than the other guys on that list, but yeah, great great group of players there.

Lechler and Seabass just came off the best season effort I've ever seen from a kicking team pair. They were just awesome last year.

Wow...I didn't realize how good the kicking was in the division. Besides the Broncos punter of course, as there isn't even one listed. Brett Kern would be high on this list if we didn't release him :(

Our punter is Dustin's brother (Britton), and has not played a NFL game yet (2nd year player). At least he has good punting bloodlines.
