You pick it: AFC West story lines

It's time for this week's "you pick it" feature.

I offer three candidates for the top story in the AFC West from the past week and you hit my mailbag with your thoughts. I will post some of your responses later in the week. Here are the candidates:

The Chiefs stay undecided: Eight days after he was hired as the team's general manager, Scott Pioli still hasn't announced whether coach Herm Edwards will return or not. A decision is expected at any moment, but it was originally expected last week.

Jeremy Bates goes to USC: The Broncos informed Bates, their passing coordinator who had a huge fan in quarterback Jay Cutler, that he was going to be replaced last week. On Monday, Bates opted to go to USC as the Trojans' offensive coordinator.

Cable goes to Senior Bowl as a member of the Raiders but still no word if he's the coach: Tom Cable went to the Senior Bowl as a member of the team and he has helped interview potential assistant coaches. But, as of now, it has not been announced if the interim coach will return to Oakland or if the team will hire another full-time coach.
