Oh, and jinxes aren't real.

The name Tebow is on the cover...and much like how Jesus is the Word made Flesh, so be it with Tebow, which cancels out any SI jinx...

Maybe the throwback unis will throw off the jinx for a couple weeks. Our only chance.

I also think the Jinx can be cancelled because they are discussing two teams, not one. So maybe the crossmojination cancels out the SI cover jinx.

Those bastards. At least it's too late to put the Broncos on the cover of Madden, and give them the Chunky Soup contract.

Ya know, that's nice to see Graham make the cover of SI. He deserves some recognition for all the things he does to make the team a professional group.

So, if there is such a thing as a jinx, only poor DG is gonna get it. And only if he wears the orange jersey and pink gloves.

Looking at that picture, I notice Graham doesn't have knee or thigh pads. Seems like very few players wear knee and thigh pads anymore. What's the deal with that? The pads make them less curvaceous and sexy?

That's what everyone thought when they put both Fitz and Troy on the Madden cover this year... But low and behold Polamalu was injured before halftime of game 1. Uhh

i love the guy, but he wouldn't be my top choice as the guy to put on the cover

Exactly.... I was just going to bring this up. We were 4-0, then lost to the Chiefs the next week

Remember Carmelo? Wasn't his biggest injury after getting plastered on SI?

God, this sucks.

Kiss of death for the Broncos?
Posted by Mike Florio on October 6, 2009 1:59 PM ET

We've been ridiculed by Broncos fans for keeping their surprisingly strong team out of the top ten in our Week Four power rankings.

Though we're impressed by the team's accomplishments, they've still yet to achieve elite status, in our view.

Really, does anyone think they'd stand a chance against the Steelers? (We'll find out in November.)

The Broncos have a chance to prove the doubters wrong again this weekend, when the Patriots come to town, in what likely will be the PFTV game of the week. For all two of you who will be watching the segment. (Hello, Joe Brocato's parents.)

But it could end up being a blowout at Mile High on Sunday, given that Sports Illustrated has jinxed the Broncos by putting them on the cover of this week's issue (per the Twitter feed of the Denver Post).

We still like the Broncos' chances on Sunday, made-up curses and hexes notwithstanding.

And if they win, they'll likely make it into next week's top ten.

Even if they don't, they're in great shape. A 4-0 record means that even a so-so 6-6 gets them to 10-6 and gives them a shot at the AFC West.

Screw that. I'm starting to get the feeling this team is special. The whole Marshall hugging the coach. The beast is back people. Teams are going to start seeing what this offense is capable of really soon.

Ortons going to get that glove off. Moreno is going to break out. Marshall is going to start dominating, and then that will open it up for Royal to start making some more plays.

I hadn't heard it mentioned but Woodyard is also starting to make a believer out of me. I thought he was too small to play inside but I was wrong. He's flying around when he's in the game.

If we can survive this SI curse and smack the Pats in the mouth. People are going to start jumping of buildings at ESPN HQ and the league office.

Brady is going down, and he's going to go down hard!!!!!

what position is Woodyard playing? because every time i see him on the field it seems like Davis and DJ are still on the field.

is he playing some sort of hybrid S/LB just so we can get him on the field?

Nah. If you guys beat the Patriots you're legit.

But you won't. The Broncos are frauds. Brady and Bill are going to pull your pants down.

There is no jinx. It just seems that way. you only hear about the ones that lose the next week and never about the guys/teams that didn't get jinxed so it only seems psychologically like a jinx. Of course if enough guys on each team are buying into being jinxed, perhaps it can have a kind of self-fulfilling effect

But its nonsense there is any real jinx going on here. There is a 50% -50% chance of being jinxed ... or winning ... for every cover shot each week. The real odds are likely even higher in favor of winning for the team featured on the cover , as most teams on the cover are excelling at that point.

And even the vast majority of those teams that do lose the next week, I imagine go on to have successful seasons if they are playing so well to get featured.

Reality ... the 'Unjinx' :pimp:
