What are the records in the west

KC 3-2
Den 2-4
Chugers 2-4
Oak 2-4

The Chugers are done, the Queefs are on a down ward spiral, Oakland is still the worst team in NFL history and we should have beaten what is thought to be the best team in the NFL.

As crappy as we have started out I think we can still win our division. It does not matter what our record is as long as we come out on top in the AFC West.

Questions

1 can we get a running game.
2 Is Elvis out for the year or can he make it back ( Elvis and Ayers together make me smile )
3 Can we find away to let Orton play between the 20's and Tebow in the red zone.
4. Can we get a new center before the trade dead line ends?

Yes my glasses may be blue and Orange but I don't think it is that far fetched.

Chargers will adjust as they always do. You are having us make the playoffs but the other 3 teams are now saying the same thing. There is only one team that will come out of the funk and I am not sure us winning 8 games will be enough. Win the games in division (which we have had exactly zero of) and then talk playoffs. In a few posts, you will have the famous, "Playoffs?" clip from Jim Mora.

We are only one game behind KC. If you look at the teams we have played compared to those they played it's not even close.

I know we lost to the Jets and Indy but I came out of those games with the feeling that if one play had went the other direction we would have won them both.

I honestly fill that this is the year the Chugers implode so that leaves KC.

The only thing KC has is there run game. We have went against 2 of the best running teams in the NFL had pretty much shut them down. Including holding Chris Henry to 44 yards.

I know these last for game have sucked losing but like I said before I think we could have just as easily won 2 of the 4 and the teams we played were much better then anyone in out division.

they drafted the future at RB supposedly doesnt look like anything special to me.......

look at the Chargers remaining schedule they can't afford to "always start slow".

We're two games behind Kansas, really.

That said, there's no good reason why we can't go very close to winning the division. I know the Chargers always start slow, but they're 2-4 with three very difficult games to come before their bye. Patriots, Titans and Texans... not easy. They'll likely be 3-6 or 4-5 by the time they're done with those games, and with Floyd and Gates hurt the former looks more likely right now.

Kansas have to be the favourite to win the division right now. They're playing good football and should really have beaten the Texans yesterday. Their schedule looks pretty manageable as well.

We get to the bye at 4-4 and I think things will be looking very nice. We then have two weeks to prepare for Kansas at Invesco, in what would be a massive game against a Kansas team who'll probably be 5-3 or 6-2 coming in.

I'm not sure why some people are so down on us to be honest. We've played well 3 of the last four weeks against some really good teams, and were unlucky not to beat a very good Jets team. But it was always going to be a struggle for us up against the genuinely top teams in the league. We have an O-Line that is trying to come together, and a defense that has really been crippled by the loss of our most important defender. Were just not there yet.

But now we get to pick on someone our own size for a few weeks. The likes of Oakland, San Fran and Kansas shouldn't scare us, we should be able to beat them if we go out there and play well.

Our weakness is getting to the passer, and good QB's are going to do some damage to us. Fortunately the next three QB's we face are Jason Campbell, Alex Smith and Matt Cassel. If our run defense can play like it did yesterday, we should hold up just fine on D against those teams. We're not going to shut anyone down, but the defense should be at least competitive.

As for the offense, it's time to start consistently putting big numbers on the board. We're moving the ball well through the air, and the run game showed some signs of life yesterday when Moreno was on the field. Time to start turning those yards into points though, we've played three really good defenses in a row now and done a decent job of moving the ball well. The offense needs to go out there now and start putting 3 or 4 TD's on the board per game though against easier opponents, no excuses.

The playoffs ARE there for us. We're not out of it yet, and if we can win 7 of the last 10 games we'll go close to the playoffs.

But we need to cut out the bull****. No more stupid penalties on O, stop sucking on ST and be more consistent on D.

This team has the personnel to do well from here on in, but we need to go out there and execute. Time to see just where McD is taking this team.

The good news for the Broncos is that they are still very much in the division race and they've played by far the toughest part of their schedule. The bad news is that there is no chance of a wild card coming from the AFC west.

The Chiefs, Raiders, and Chargers have all played powderpuff schedules compared to the Broncos so far.

The Chargers can't go to the well of the "undefeated December" and expect to keep getting away with it.

It's going to come down to who takes care of business against division rivals, so it's all there for the taking as far as the Broncos are concerned.

I love the optimism, but yeah. I'm not buying we're playoff bound at all.
We've played well 3 of the past 4 weeks? Well, we're 1-3 in the past 4 weeks so that doesn't mean much to me. And 2 of the losses were by 14 points. Now I feel we should be at the bye 3-5 at worst, where we should beat the Raiders at home and the 49ers game in London is a tossup IMO.
Heck, people were praising the run defense yesterday, and we still gave up 129 yards with a 4.3 ypc.

Unfortunately, I think this is a lost season.

Our schedule has been tough and we have been right in the game for the majority of our losses (including games against Jax and the Jets that really should have been won). I think its still possible (though unlikely) that we recover to go .500, but I can't see us doing any better than that.

Quite frankly, we came into the season with an average defense that has become even worse due to injury. Tough break, but it happens. I don't think there is anyone specifically to blame for a down year this year (including McDaniels). Some years you get lucky, some years you don't. This year, we are just not lucky.

With that said, I am VERY excited about next season.

To be fair, the Jets came in averaging nearly 6 yards a carry and 165 yards per game on the ground.

Shutting them down was unrealistic, but we did enough to force the game into Sanchez's hands. They never consistently moved the ball on the ground, which has to be considered a job well done by our guys.

I thought we were heading for the playoffs after the Tennessee win, really for me what the playoffs this year came down to was this:

With 10 games against the NFC and AFC West, we should win 7 of those, I believe 10-6 will makes the playoffs, so we need 3 wins outside of those games, I believed that the win in Tennessee, home game against the Jets, home game against Houston would provide those 3 wins and take us to at least 10-6.

Losing to the Jets the way we did, reinforces my belief that we are a team who can go 10-6 with an easy schedule, however the way we lost, doesn't instill much confidence, we can not afford that many mental lapses in a game of that importance and in a game where we are very close to winning. If we can not improve our mental game, get rid of those mistakes, we are not going to even be an 8-8 team, we have a lot of potentialy close games coming up and we have to be able to close those out and we can not afford leaving points on the field.

If you believe that SD is in trouble (and I do too) and Oakland isn't a threat (as I believe) then it looks as if it really is shaping up to be a two-horse race between the Broncos and the Chiefs.

Looking as dispassionately as I can, the biggest hurdle for the Broncos to overcome is the flex portion of the schedule.

Broncos faced Baltimore and the Jets---0-2
Chiefs gets Cleveland and the Bills--2-0??? (most likely)

Are the Broncos that much better than KC that they can overcomewhat is essentially a two-game deficit?

Let me illustrate. It is entirely possible that 9-7 may win the West.

To get to 9-7, Denver has to go 9-5 in their remaining games (outside of Baltimore and NYJets) They are currently 2-2. Need to go 7-3 the rest of the way to get to 9-7.

KC will likely have to go only 7-7 (provided they beat the Bills at home) in their remaining games. They are currently 2-2. Need to go 5-5 the rest of the way to get to 9-7.

I don't think KC or Denver has shown anything to suggest one team is 2 games better than the other, but it shows the hurdle Denver has to overcome.

You'd think about firing McDaniels for finishing 8-8?

Would be foolish really.

One thing McDaniels has proven is that he can work wonders with QB's, and he puts together a hell of a passing game. In today's NFL, that's a massive asset for your head coach to have. You don't give up after two years, especially before he's had a chance to see what he can do with Tebow.

Considering we lost our most important defender for the year, have had big injury issues and are starting multiple rookies on the offense you can't think about pulling the plug after this year... unless we go 4-12 or something. Even then I wouldn't, unless the team visibly quits on the season and the coach.

Every team has injuries..Teams like Rams are starting with New QB and are having success.

I just don't understand fans tossing the whole season just because it looks like we won't win the Super Bowl.

See that's the thing. I'm of the opinion that we are not a very good football team this year. But tossing the whole season? No way. I live in ABQ but am posting this from Denver. I made the trip up to catch the game.

I have zero hope for this year. But tossing the season, no. I was still just as heartbroken when that PI was called or when we fumbled the snap as I would have been had we been 5-0 or something.

I think this is the reason the optimists and pessimists don't get along. Like I said, I have no hope for this year. But that doesn't mean I'm not watching every single second of every game and cheering hard from either my seats @ Invesco or @ home on my couch. I think some people think I'm no longer a fan or something. Incorrect. I'm seeing 1 more game this year, the KC game. And I can't wait to make the trip again. It's still Bronco football and it's still ridiculously fun. Even if we're not very good.

Not sure if this will format correctly, but here are the remaining schedules for each team. I don't see the Chargers getting to 9 wins. I think they will have a tough time getting to 8 actually, but 9 will be really tough. Kansas City will be between 8-10. It is key we beat them when we play them cause I could really see us and them finishing 9-7 and it coming down to tiebreakers. Basically, had we won yesterday we would only need to go 6-4 the rest of the way to get to 9-7, now we need to go 7-3 which is doable but gonna be hard.

2-4 is not good. At all. I think everyone agrees.

The bright spot is we have all of our division games left, and we have a couple of good wins, and could have two more. If we don't have a facemask penalty yesterday we're at least 3-3.

IMHO, whichever team in the AFCW has the best division record wins it. If you would have told me we'd be 2-4 at the 6 game mark preseason I wold have chalked the season off as a loss. However, since the division as a whole is struggling, we have a shot. Do I think the playoffs are a lock? No. But do I think we have just a good of a shot at it as anyone in the West. Hell yes.

hopefully with some returns of our injured guys and some more cohesion these opportunities will turn into wins

It's still Bronco football and it's still ridiculously fun. Even if we're not very good.

I remember yesterday when that fumbled snap happening, i just kinda started chuckling to myself and smiling and my dad angrily looked at me saying "Why are you smiling!??!" Really, to have that happen, its just the whats the worst thing that could happen, actually happened. Got our hopes up, and a dumb miscue cost us. Just like the botched snap on the FG try, Hill's penalty.

A lot of people are optimists here who every year it seems they think the Broncos have the pieces to win a lot of games. I used to think like that and predicted playoff appearances in the early part of the past decade(2000-2004).
I stopped with that, and sort of became realistic about the chances. I wouldn't clarify myself as pessimistic, but realistic about the chances the Broncos have right now. I will still be cheering hard for them to win, but like the Colts and Ravens games, I knew the chances of them winning were very slim. Now, I see a defense that has zero pass rush with horrible blitzes and a banged up secondary, an offense that for the most part has been absolutely dreadful in the running game and in the red zone, and I just find difficulty in believing that the Broncos can make it to the playoffs.
People talk about how we have a good chance at going 7-3 in the remaining 10 games, well, there is a good chance we go 5-5 as well.

Show your frustration at Mcd.
Won 4 games out of 16.

Ahhh, yes. And we went 2-8 to finish last year. I love how you continually select certain games to make a weak ass point that McD is a horrible coach.

So, since we're doing that......did you know....Shanny finished with the following records in his last 3 seasons in Denver....

2006 Finished 2-5
2007 Finished 2-4
2008 Finished 0-3....

For a combined.....are you ready?......4-12......wow, he was sooooooooooo much better than McD at closing out a season......::)

So again I never said anything about a wild card. I don't think there is any chance in hell of us getting the wild card. However I do think there is a good chance of us winning the division.

My Brother in-law and I were talking and he is a huge KC fan. I said you have to be happy with them and he said if there is one thing we KC fans have learned is that you can count on us to piss away a good thing.

I think this is true. I think that the coaches have or are figuring them out. Stop the run win the game.

Chuggers they will implode, I no longer fill they are a threat. There team is nowhere near as good or the same as it was 2 years ago. I think they will get worse from game to game as we get better.

That leaves Oakland and as long as big gay al is running the show they are nothing to worry about either.

Just sayin'

hmm..first let's win a game..
It's frustrating to see how our team is playing.
We won 4 games out of 16 and you are talking about playoff's?

Well he might be right . We got a lot of young player and coachs so I do hope he is right . As so you should be hoping that as well .

go_broncos I am not one of the people thinking you are all wrong with your statements on all that is Broncos . but you should try positive thing also there are plenty positive things about this team you never point out .:thumbsup:

how true . it is called a lot of young player-youg coaches and this is what you get ... fine tuning is something that takes time .

The only reason this team has a chance is the Rubber band man .Orton.8')
