Prime to start! Let everyone in Denver start the season at Sports Authority the way the last game was played there, with a win over the Steelers.

On a side note I laugh at everyone who said that when the fake schedule was released there was no way that we start the season at home, or that the NE game wasn't prime time or that we play in San Diego before November. Apparently no one actually knows jack ****.

On paper, in April it definitely looks like a schedule where we'll have to finish strong down the stretch to get in the playoffs. No coasting in on a late losing streak off the strength of a fast start this year.

If I remember correctly, they won't assign more than five for any team, up front - leaving one potential game for flexing.

Atlanta game was one I was considering going to (since it's only a 5 hour drive), but I don't know if I can do a Monday Night game. I wish the Carolina was either the Sunday before or after Thanksgiving, since we'll be at the in-laws about 2 hours away all that week. Hmmmm.

Just in case you guys forgot, everything you're worried about happened last year. And we won a playoff game!

We did start 2-4, we did not have a fast start.
We did coast in on a late losing streak, we did not finish strong.

Don't worry! :sunshine:

10 wins is attainable.

Because of the stupid rule where east coast teams don't have to make too many trips back west. The Saints were supposed to play the Broncos and Chargers on the road, but because they also play at Oakland, the league switched the locations of those games for both teams. WTF should the Broncos and Chargers get penalized for the Saints having too many west coast trips???

DENVERDUI55
04-17-2012, 07:44 PM
I'm guessing we beat a team or two we shouldn't beat and lose twice to teams that we have no business losing to. 10 and 6 would be a good record with the schedule that is on paper. Of course who can predict injuries.

There are more prime time games this year because the NFL Network Thursday Night games are all season long now. I think a number of teams pulled 4-5 prime time games now.

The Chargers got 5 prime time games and they're a mediocre puss of a team with Norv still here.

I think you underestimae all of them. While none are elite teams.....none are BAD, either. 1 game separated every team in our division last year. The Chiefs got better with a now healthy Jamaal Charles and Eric Berry. The Raiders have a decent defense, and Palmer while overrated should be better than he was last year. The Charges have the second best QB in the division.

Division games are usually never calk walks.

BroncoBeavis

We're in the AFCW.

Automatically isn't that bad.

Yeah. And when you start game-for-gaming it against last season... especially based on expectations going into last season, it's not all that different.

I count 8 games that are different from last year.

CAR, TB, CLE, based on prior performance don't even need discussion.

And based on 2011 preseason expectations vs 2012 preseason expectations

As a game, NO is no worse than GB. HOU isn't much worse than CHI, if at all. PIT and DET is mostly a wash. BAL and NYJ... again based on preseason expectations, no different. Matching up Ten and Atl... maybe a little tougher there. But not night and day.

All in all, I think the schedule's a little tougher, but nothing compared to a team that gets to make a living in a division like the NFC or AFC North.

And like Kaylore said, it's more about how the balls bounce once the season starts.

Each team in the NFL can be scheduled a maximum five prime-time games.
A team can be flexed into a sixth prime-time game later in the season.

Norv. Wow. Just wow.
Its not that bad though. You can always rest in the fact that your team will soon be gone to LA, and you wont have to complain about them anymore.

LOL. I must have missed that news.

Did you notice them saying we start off the season IN Pittsburgh

Yes which is one of their points why it's so tough, our schedule is automatically easier than they assumed.

And just like AEG missed the boat on the LA stadium issue.

This is an insane schedule.
Yes it is... what is that saying ? Something like... 'Can't be the Best... unless you <u>Beat</u> the Best'.

Excited to get 5 nationally televised games. Disappointed there are no home Monday night games.

I expect 14-2, 12-4 at the worst. Anything short of a Lombardi is failure.

well with payton i expect a Lombardi no want a lombardi very soon by 2014 or this will be a failure i expect mutable ones
