Do the Broncos win this game and move to 5-0, or are we due for a setback?

GO BRONCOS!!!

I voted not sure, but if we play competitive football, there's really no shame in losing this game. I think it will be close and hard fought and whoever makes the least amount of mental errors probably takes it. Lets just not get blown out 38948934893-7 like we did last season.

We'll find out. It's tough to call right now. these two coaches know each other so well, so match up's in general may go out the window. This will be a serious chess match.

Not sure. I could see Denver up 17-16 and losing on a last second FG.

We'll lose by 60-70 points. We should cancel the game.

Not sure, if our D keeps playing like they have been AND the ref's don't call a 15y RTP penalty on the crowd for being to loud and hurting poor wittle Tommy's sensitive eardrums, I like our chances.

How is this poll not public? It's un-American and weak.

Could go either way on this one, it will be really tough to win.

Shanny used to own belli, hope McD can continue the tradition.

Unfortunately, our offenses' short commings will catch up to us this week. Our defense can only carry this offense for so long. Eventually(against NE) this offense is going to have to show it can go toe to toe with other power houses out there.

Well I voted just go to the poll to find out which option.

We should take a knee on all offensive plays. No point getting our players injured, when we are going to lose anyway.

In fact we should take knees on all defensive plays too.

I think this game will be determined on how our offense comes out and plays.

I'm going to say it's a 24 point over/under for our offense. If we score more than 24, we're gonna win.

Putting "not sure" as an option.

Not having a public poll.

Tough game....Buck out hurts.


I'll go out on a limb and say the glove comes off this week.
Chessmatch ...not so much. We run it down their throats and
hold Welker /Brady in check.

1 defensive pick 6.

Denver 30-17.

I have just committed my cardinal sin....predicting a score AND a victory!


We are now doomed!

Patriots 34-3

Denver can win or they could get blown out. I think they need to make it an ugly game and win the TO battle. The game will have to be similar to last week. I think NE's O is better than Dallas's but Dallas has the better D in my opinion. Denver just needs to continue to be the grinders they are and make a few plays and limit the mistakes and who knows.

Exactly. Hell, if Doom even farts on the field he's likely to get flagged, tossed and banned from the league. This game just isn't even worth playing at this point. It's not a question of if we lose it's a question of how much we lose in the process.

Im gonna say no

I think we were a better team than Cinci, Dallas, etc..

I dont think at this moment we are a better team than New England

Also I am going to the game, and the Broncos are 0-3 in games I have attended

Ill just apologize in advance

Fred Taylor is out for the game.

I dunno, in the past I would say no.

I think there are legit times when a student beats the teacher. I am guessing McDaniels wants this game and has been working a plan for it since he got the schedule.

Although I am still an optimist I cannot refute the fact that Kyle Orton just wins.

We also have the better defense and Brady needed help of if not ticky tack calls at least 2 extra downs on 2 different drives to beat the ravens.

Also this is a home game and should be the biggest of the year, if the team comes out flat and lays an egg then we can fall back to the "we can win our division" talk but if McDaniels pulls off a win the Broncos can no longer be ignored.

I think and hope it is Broncos by 4

Go Broncos

i took the pussy way out and said not sure. When I did the thread/poll of what our record would be from the Raiders game to Baltimore, I stated 3 and 3. My losses were Pats, at SD and At Baltimore. I can see us actually winning one of those games but even on MNF at SD is going to be tough. This one is at home which hopefully gives us the advantage. Brady is a damn smart QB and has that winning instinct with Peyton Manning. If we play D like the Jets did to the Pats, we can win this one. We need to remember how bad they killed us last year....... with CULTer. Yes, some of you are Culters.

I think we have switched brains or something.

I have no idea this weekend. After the way New England kicked our ass last season I do not even want to venture a guess.

No idea.

I picked the Broncos in the pick em league cuz I just cant bring myself to pick against the good guys but I just don't know.

Brady doesn't miss receivers like Romo did and there were some wide open spots in our secondary. Going to have to bring pressure in this game because that's the only way to get Brady off his game. If we don't he is going to eat us alive.

Offense will have to play nearly mistake free football, not just with turnovers, but penalties and dropped passes as well. We gotta keep the ball on long drives and score TDs and force the Pats to some early game 3 and outs.

I think the Broncos win in a close one 24-17, last play Brady is sacked as result of Doom pressure, Doom dominates off the edge all day and Brady falls all over himself because his footwork is still f-ed up after a year out of football and no pocket protection. Doom get 2+ sacks and slaps one for a fumble.

Orton plays game manager throughout but turns it over on the goal line trying to extend a play with his weakass arm.

Is this poll a joke? I've traveled to the future in 200 different parallel existences and in all but one the Patriots win... in the one the Pats don't win it's because we're playing the Mexico City Banditos who also won.

like ive been saying, we match up well enough that our strengths are almost like tehy were designed to BEAT the patriots. doom will own light, champ needs to play like all pro champ and we have great nickel corners. only problem is our LB in coverage like its been all year.

Someone in another thread mentioned the Pats are 21st in rushing defense. I really like that stat. A healthy dose of Moreno, et al should ensure a victory for the good guys...:bronxrox:

And, their run game right now doesn't scare me.

Hopefully, this is the week we get our offense rolling. Actually, I am just hoping to see us get some better starting field position. We need some good returns to win this game.
