In the NFL as evidenced by the falcons going to sunny Diego and smacking them around ALL game. There was no 4th quarter rally by the chargers against Atlanta and the chargers were at home. Houston is exactly what everyone expected them to be... The most balance team in the league. Our team certainly has its deficiencies particularly at safety center and right guard but we will get better and more cohesive offensively. I've never seen Manning make so many plays while being forced off of his spot ( which he rarely was in Indy)....Thomas and decker really need to work with a jugss machine. Today's performance was unacceptable for our 2 starting WRs...

Either Baltimore or New England will be joining us and Pittsburgh at 1-2. Outside the most optimistic here who thought we'd go 13-3 or 12-4, I think most people were guessing about 3-3 at the bye. And that's still well in range, if we play 4 quarters against Oakland and San Diego. If we enter the bye at 2-4 or worse, then I'll worry the season might be slipping away. Division games: can't overemphasis how important they'll be.

Best two teams in the league are currently playing each other. Houston and Atlanta are contenders sure but not the very best.

Need to open up the play calling before we get down by multiple scores. D needs to get off the field on third down and stop giving up big plays. Wish we would have tried getting Hillman in space a little more.

Sorry, these games feel way too much like when Tebow was at the helm. I want 4 quarters of competitive football. Until the team can provide that, I'll roll my eyes at optimism. I was once intrigued by the potential of the team. Now I'm nervously hoping Oakland doesn't blow Denver out of the water.

We were a playoff team last year, two wins from the Super Bowl.

So why is it okay to take solace in moral victories? Shouldn't we be expecting more than playing good enough to lose by a touchdown?

Last year.we were winning because of Tebow's magic in 4th quarter.

Not really. The offense around Manning is still getting used to the hurry-up.

It's gonna be tough... I still think 10-6 is possible this year, with a nice run at the end.

Can't pannick. We're not even a qtr of the way into the season. Give the falcons, Texans (and referee crews) their due. If Denver played a 60 minute game, we would be 3-0. It's nice that we can battle back but Denver needs to start earlier in games and capitalize on missed throws, dropped passes, and potential turnovers and sacks.

The Joker
09-23-2012, 07:38 PM
Hard to say for sure they're the two best teams, but they're certainly very good teams and I wouldn't be surprised if they both have first round byes come January.

We haven't played well the last two weeks though, there's no sense denying that. The O-Line has been poor, Manning has made some bad throws and the receivers are dropping balls on offense. The defense aren't getting consistent pressure and are making mistakes in coverage. It hasn't been great.

That said, there's no reason at all that we can't improve over the coming weeks and start winning games. If we can get to the bye week at 3-3 we'll be in great shape, our schedule is much easier after the bye and our division isn't anything to fear.

Some of you need to sack the hell up and stop crying, some of the posts these last few hours have been pathetic.

Really? So if Porter doesn't intercept the ball we lose the game there? Oh no we don't. He's also a dropped pick six away from beating the Falcons.

Don't bother, some people just like being miserable, apparently. Btw, you stole my thunder on the Parcells quote--You are what your record says it is-- but you beat me to it.

And our record says we are 1-2 and one game out of 1st place with 13 games to go, but you would think we are already mathematically out it according to some people on this board.

This is the first year I feel the schedule is really what everyone thought it was. Realistically, we better win next week because at NE week 5 is almost definitely a loss. 97 percent chance we lose that game. 1-4 start would not be good.

Wait, which int opportunity are you referring to...the claw was all over in the atlanta game on our side. My point is that we have yet to put together a convincing win which is what is required to make some noise in the playoffs this year. If we arent playoff ready now our extreme season schedule wont allow us in making this team more of a laugh...almost a joke compared to last years.

No, and I'll tell you why....

When this season started what do you think the odds were that the Saints would be winless and the Cards with Kevin Kolb would be unbeaten after the first 3 weeks?

That the Eagles would turn the ball over 9 times in first two games and be 2-0?

That the Titans would hang 41 points on the Lions and then lose the game too?

That the Steelers would be 1-2 along with us?

We've played some quality teams and our first half of season had us playing some tough games....nobody realistically thought we'd go 16-0, or 14-2...most figure we'd lose about 5-7 games this year.

I figured we'd be 3-3 or 4-2 after first six weeks....if we're 1-5 then maybe you should start to be seriously concerned.

Sadly, I heard a lot of this from a few fans today, and dead serious. They weren't those nut job Tebow fans like go_broncos and the like but they were calling him old and washed up.

Then he started throwing TD's and leading the team to another near comeback. Which shut them up and totally changed their tune.

Jesus. Stop being drama queens. It's pretty simple. Our team isn't on the same page. The offense isn't in sync, neither is the defense. The refs compound the bad play with terrible calls. We just played two veteran teams that have multiple years experience playing together in Atlanta/Houston and we had our shot to win either game. We will only get better from here in my opinion. Credit to them but it's a long season. I'm not worried about how we play at the end of quarter 1, in the 2012 season. I care about how we're playing heading into quarter 4. We have a long way to go to get there. I think we are playing hard, i don't think we are playing smart but we're getting things on film and you know with Manning, he's going to hold everybody accountable, even himself. The defense should get better as the season goes on and as they get more familiar with the defense and JDR's style.

We are playing some really good teams with a ton of talent. The schedule is brutal as we all knew but I think 1 good thing will come of it. Beating up on creampuffs will not prepare you to win in the playoffs. I have no doubts we will win the AFC. I think playing these tough teams so early, is only going to make this team stronger in the end. It really sucks to lose, even more so knowing that if this team could have avoided such catastrophic big plays against us (all the INT's against ATL and all the long TD's against HOU), we very well could have found a way to win these games. Even just cutting those mistakes down by 1 or 2 plays, that would have been enough to win those games. At least we know we can play with anybody. Now we need to stop shooting ourselves in the foot.

I think Houston is a lock at 12 and 4 provided they stay healthy. They were talking about their schedule last night on Sunday night football that its a big reason New England or Baltimore needs to win to keep pace. Houston has 6 games with their bottom feeding division.

What matters is how you play at the end of the season. Those who go on runs are often the eventual winners.
The Broncos are a 1-2 team against the toughest schedule. And they are playing sloppy and out of sync on offense. They are not as good as I hoped they would be, rather just as good as I thought they would be. I say patience is a virtue.

Jay3
09-24-2012, 05:40 AM
Yeah, those teams were two of the best teams in the NFL this year, and the Broncos are not on that level. But there were enough signs of being decent even in the losses. I think the Broncos are on track to attain an above .500 record.

I just want to see progress from week to week.
Theres a lot of luck and chance involved with with this game and you cant lose your head after each lose..... Im looking for signs that the team is getting. I want to see creativity by the coaches and evidence that theyre doing their job (McCoy!). I want to see the progress from Peyton to DEck and DT- crisper routes and better timing.

If were still making the same mistakes in week 7 and 8 then i might flip out, but not yet.
Look at the Giants teams from the seasons they won the super bowl. Those teams started slow but they were well coached and had a good QB .. and they kept getting better.
9 wins should get us in. And if we stay healthy the talent is there to compete with NE, Baltimore and Houston..
But its time for the coaches to earn their money. And its time for the players to put the work in(Deck, DT!)
Ill be watching.

Our linebackers and safeties will simply get overmatched and we don't get good inside pressure on Brady which is his kryptonite. We won't get blown out but we won't win either ....

New England has as many matchup issues against us as we do against them. There's really no reason to think we can't beat New England. They have the 21st ranked defense right now, and they're 25th against the pass. Yes their TE's will likely tear us up, but there's a lot more to a game than that.

If we start 4-3 we make the playoffs. These next three games will decide our season imo.

Wins vs NE and SD with a loss vs NO would be the best case scenario since I can't see us winning all three.

Though I see a loss vs NE and wins vs SD and NO to be more likely.
