Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Today, the Broncos blog Predominately Orange features a post with a provocative headline: "The Chiefs Could Put an End to Broncos Season."

Kim Constantinesco's intriguing argument about the dangers of looking past a mediocre squad playing at a stadium that's seldom been kind to Denver sent me to the Chiefs' official website to look for bulletin-board material -- and it didn't take me long to find it. The page devoted to KC Wolf, the team's mascot, features the dorky, tennis-shoe-clad furball taking out Denver's own Barrelman with a flying kick.

The shot's obviously been Photoshopped -- because the Barrelman could roll right over that mangy mutt. Like the Broncos need to do over the Chiefs this weekend.
