I really feel like as an organization we are just trying to survive this season and get TT some reps. Please do not forget that our depth is still suspect. We are still very much in a rebuilding mode. They are going to have some really good and bad games. But I think love him or hate him everyone is getting sucked on board the Tebow roller coaster.

Let’s look at the starters on offense:

R. Clady: 4th year
Z. Beadles: 2nd year
J. Walton: 2nd year
C. Kuper: 6th year
O. Franklin: 1st year
D. Fells: 4th year
D. Rosario: 5th year
V. Green: 1st year
J. Thomas: 1st year
E. Decker: 2nd year
E. Royal: 4th year
D. Thomas: 2nd year
M. Willis: 4th year
S. Larsen: 4th year
T. Tebow: 2nd year
W. McGahee: 9th year

What I really feel is that TT is getting a lot of experience this year. I really feel that every game he is getting a little bit better. I feel the passes are getting slightly better. I do not think we will see any huge leaps in the passing game this year and he still has very long way to go. I think we will continue to run 30/50 times a game and pass 15/25 times a game. For right now that is what we need to do. We should rely on our running game and defense. Maybe next season as the coaches get to put TT work ethic to the test and help develop him into more of a passer we will see more of balanced offence.

If you exclude McGahee the average age of our main offensive starters is less than 3 years in the league. They are learning to play the game, they are learning to play with each other and develop as one cohesive unit. There will be some really good games. There will be some very bad games. But one thing I have noticed in the last few games is that the TEAM is coming together. The TEAM is coming along.

Another thing we need to remember is that our defensive coaching staff and culture were changed this year. Culture is not something you change right away. Just as our players have had to learn new things about what the coaches expect, the coaches had to learn about their payer’s strengths and weaknesses. I think things are progressing great. I feel that the players are starting to understand the schemes and are actually looking better and better each week. I think we will have a better idea of the development of our team and the coaching staff in the next few weeks.

I didn't know you could start 16 people on one side of the ball

Go back and watch film. It has been the secret in several important situations over the last few weeks.

I buy into most of this. We're definitely a young team, and we finally have some guys to develop after a decade of basically bringing up very few of our own impact-players.

The O-line has improved greatly since the week 1 massacre. The D looked as good as it has all year last week.

I just hope we can take momentum into the end of the year. It's been so long since we were able to do that.

Agreed. I think this week is going to be huge for momentum... a win gives us three division wins (2 on road) and a win against a tough AFC East team in the last four games. I really believe this is the defining game of the year.

If the Broncos win this weekend, there's no reason they can't win the division. I think it's a pretty good matchup with the way the defense is playing with Von Miller.

The later Shanahan era was marked by late-season collapses. This team has been the opposite so far, hopefully they continue to get better.

I fully expect it. A young team, well coached, and most important, they are maybe the most physical team we have had in many years.

I also expect some time soon we take control of the division, and not look back.

Too early to say if this is the case. Let's chat on New Years Day eve.

It's entirely possible that the Broncos just needed a spark. But I can't help myself but remember the things that were being said about the Chiefs last year at this time (soft schedule, winning lucky, won't last in the playoffs, etc.).

I only see one game in which we have won lucky (Miami). There were a couple games we were unlucky in as well. Most noteable was the Orton fumble with no one around vs the Raiders.

They will open Tebow more if we are out of the playoff race, but right now conservative play gives them the best chance to win. I bet we will be in the race throughout the remainder of the season.
