We've played an easy record vs teams with a 12-8 overall record. Easy. That would be their record without the broncos game UNSPIN. Instead its 12-13. So because we beat teams our schedule is easy. Makes sense I guess ESPIN.

(Not going to look up the stats, but here's some justification for more.)

The teams we play all have bad offenses, their ypg aren't always top tier. But all those teams also have one thing in common. They played our defense UNSPIN!

The Broncos offense is ranked 6th now, because we play bad defenses ESPIN. The defenses are ranked low because they played the Broncos offense UNSPIN.

You're thinking too much into it, 75% of all statistics are worthless anyway.

Lets all settle down with the complaining about the "experts" out there.

I think we, as fans of this Denver Broncos team, should try to adapt to the team's mentality as well.

Let them talk. Let them doubt. Let them hate. Let them disrespect.

Then, week by week - TAKE IT.

Some of you guys put way too much energy and thought into what the talking heads say.

We're the only team in the league that has 3 wins vs. opponents with winning records. Those 3 teams are a combined 10-2 against the rest of the league.

The colts have not beaten a team with a winning record yet. The giants have beaten one and the vikings have (barely) beaten one. The saints are the only other undefeated team that has beaten more than one opponent (two) with a winning record.

At least 2 of these teams will remain undefeated while at least one of them will get their first loss this weekend.

85% of statistics are made up on the spot.

96% of people know that.

I don't care..its just anoying more than anything..you just sit and wonder how these guys get a job. It'd be nice if they went out and looked for guys that know what there talking about...instead they hire every single player that retires. It's like as soon as you retire you know you'll be working for ESPN in a week or two!! There needs to be more guys like Shefter and less guys like Dukes, Hassleback etc.

It's funny because on my Charger board on Monday there was a thread warning us to stay away from ESPN because of all the Bronco Love.

So does that mean there is a 75% chance your 75% stat is wrong???

That's the samething I thought. Now I can see his logic about the stats, and I agree with it, but it's almost like he's blaming ESPN for spinning the stats a certain way. But that's how everybody looks at the stats, not just ESPN.
