View Full Version : Divison title still in our own hands

I've had a sobering thought believe it or not.

If we win out, we win the division on a better divisional record regardless of how KC or anyone else does.

I realise right now we are a million miles away from that and whilst most of us are still picking up our bottom lip, whilst there's hope there's a chance.

Somehow McDaniels got this team to 6-0 last year. You dont win 6 games back to back via luck. They had something last year from the get go and McDaniels and the players need to find that again.

I actually think a blow-out like this and a wee trip across the water to see us Brits might do our guys a bit of good and they may well come out fighting against the 9ers.

BTW none of the above will happen without Dawkins and some of his friends coming back. 59-14 would never had happened with him on the field.

Sits back and awaits the 'stay off the drugs, the drink, are you ****ing blind' comments.

I dont give a ****, I love this team and never give up on a Broncos season until the whistle blows on it.

Win out? I'm not sure we win again. Sunday morning I figured we were legit to get to the bye week at 4-4 with a shot at the division on the back side. The team that went out there yesterday...well, that just wasn't a team I ever want to see play again. I don't know who those guys were out there wearing Broncos jerseys but they sure as hell weren't NFL caliber players. Maybe if our squad decides to show up at some point we can win some games but yesterday was a disgusting bit of heart ripping agony.

Like I said in another thread name one team to get beat down like this at home that still made the playoffs let alone won the division. We just don't have enough talent to over come the injuries and the poor front office we have. The only way I could see it is if we didn't lose another game vs the AFC west teams and after yesterday I don't see how anyone can believe that is going to happen.

I actually think the London trip is coming at a perfect time for us. It's a great chance to build camaraderie and become more unified in the face of what happened yesterday

Be very interesting to see what happens against San Fran.

This team has hit the bottom, can we drag ourselves up again?

I am not mired in the pity mud like much of the fan base on here, and I realize that even good teams lose their minds from time to time, but what about this team makes you think they are going to win the 3 divisional road games? And thats just a start. You add those 3 up as loses, and the best they can do is 8 & 8. I mean hey, mathematically, anything is possible - meaning a 2 & 14 season is possible. And while I dont see 2 & 14 as realistic, I also dont see winning the division as realistic, either.

If you get your ass kicked, you get your ass kicked, everybody that has played sports has had their ass kicked many a time, even if they don't want to remember it. The key is to come out fighting hard AFTER you've had your ass kicked. We'll see how this team responds.

Look dont get me wrong, I was as angry as anyone last night after that debacle and if that was the final game of the season I would've sulked for weeks about this humiliation.

Difference being there's still 9 games left so whilst we still have football to play I expect a proud franchise to find a way to be competitive in games and keep any small playoff chances alive whilst they still can.

I realise we still cant run the ball with any efficiency, I also realise we cant defend the run on a consistent basis and yesterday we just fell apart within the first 10 mins of the game. 3 mistakes put the game out of reach and we never recovered.

I've looked at the schedule and whilst there are some teams on there like the Chiefs who are playing well, whenever we are playing our best football there's no-one on that list we shouldn't be able to compete with.

Furthermore I think a lot of people's jobs depend on the reaction from here onwards.

Until they lose 8, I will still hope for a miracle, but it bothers me that they are now 1-5 in AFC play and don't even have a chance to improve on that mark with a win in London on Saturday.

Conference records don't mean much unless you're talking about wild card tie-breakers, and the one thing that seems certain is that there won't be a wild card coming out of the AFC West.

Personally, I think the playoffs are now a pipe dream for this year. Statistically, the chances of a 2-5 team making the playoffs are something like 1 in 40.

Realistically, I think the team needs to settle on an offensive line, quit screwing around with moves in and out, and gadget plays, and work hard on teaching the youngsters some fundamentals.

I don't think Tebow is the answer at this point; he'd just get killed in there. He has his own fundamentals to work on.

Defensively, about all we can do is to grin and bear it until some of the injured starters get back. The remaining schedule is still probably easy enough that the team can pick up 3 or 4 more wins. 5-11. Maybe 6-10.

Then hope we have a season at all next year.

Okay for the geniuses on the other side of the pond, the 49ers are pretty popular over here for some reason so that's probably part of the reason for it. Do you know what they really hype about it though is the history of the franchises, more so the 49ers because it's their home game technically, but thats what they see. They talk about SFs superbowl victories, about Jerry Rice coming to town and they've been showing interviews with Joe Montana over here. That's the SF they think about. They also discuss prior pairings like when SF blew us out in the Superbowl. They do talk about Elway and Floyd Little coming over here as part of the festivities too, but mostly they emphasis the glorious history of the SF 49ers, downplaying current records. They did the same thing when the Miami Dolphins played (and they were pretty awful at the time if I recall).

And now you have people talking about swapping out QB's to a guy who's probably a 2-3 year project to be an NFL starter.

The bottom line is, we were around a .500 team BEFORE we lost a bunch of key players to injury.

I don't mind a rocky season. I expected it. I believe the payoff will come in the long term. I mean, I'd like to win every weekend, but I'd rather build a solid foundation than hover around .500 forever.

That said, you can't come out and do what we did yesterday. That was just freakish. Oakland didn't even have to try.

Honestly, did it not look like we threw that game? If an NFL team was throwing a game, isn't that exactly what it would look like?

If the Broncos are good enough to realistically be a playoff contender then I am a homer as well. It's not until its so obvious it can't be denied anymore that I flip the switch.

That was this past offseason when I saw the makeup of the defense, the young unproven oline, the injury to our best olineman, and best OLB, and the FA that I saw as reaches at best.

Orton can execute this offense brilliantly, and has shown ability to make basically any throw needed. Give him some blocking, a running game and any sort of defense... and he's definitely QBOTF material, or at least good enough to win with.

How can people possibly make this about the QB? There were so many problems out there yesterday, and people just want to blame the QB?

All crazy talk aside, the basic theory in the OP is false. We can't win out and still win the division regardless of what anyone else does.

We're 2-5. KC is 4-2. There's a 3 game difference in the loss column. Even if we won every remaining game, including 2 over KC, they would still be a game ahead of us. They would also have to lose somewhere else along the way.

OK. Time for a reality check.

You need to pass that reefer around.

The Chargers are going to stomp a pair of mudholes in Denver this year. Rivers alone will see to that. He may approach 800 yards passing in two games.

I'm not confident the Chiefs can lay the sweep, but you will get crushed at Arrowhead. Tamba "Clady Killer" Hali and Jamaal "Dancing In Your End Zone" Charles will see to that.

The division is in your hands like my chances to wed Reese Witherspoon are in my hands. Technically I could kill every other earthly male and bribe her, but it's a long shot.

The division title is in your hands as much as Billy Blanks' chance to score a touchdown was in his own hands during the Last Boy Scout.

If the Broncos want to win out they better start packing heat. And Orton would still misfire.

You'd also need to hold the NFL Commissioner at gunpoint, because even if you sweep the Chiefs, we could end up 12-4 and the best you can do is 11-5.

you know, "non-quitters always win" doesn't exactly follow from "quitters never win." this is one of those times where you might want to examine a "philosophy" before blindly parroting it for fifty years or whatever.

I just blew your world, son

Eh, I don't have a problem with my philosophy of never quitting. If there's one philosophy to stick with for a lifetime, never quitting is the one.

I've had a sobering thought believe it or not.

If we win out, we win the division on a better divisional record regardless of how KC or anyone else does.

I realise right now we are a million miles away from that and whilst most of us are still picking up our bottom lip, whilst there's hope there's a chance.

Somehow McDaniels got this team to 6-0 last year. You dont win 6 games back to back via luck. They had something last year from the get go and McDaniels and the players need to find that again.

I actually think a blow-out like this and a wee trip across the water to see us Brits might do our guys a bit of good and they may well come out fighting against the 9ers.

BTW none of the above will happen without Dawkins and some of his friends coming back. 59-14 would never had happened with him on the field.

Sits back and awaits the 'stay off the drugs, the drink, are you ****ing blind' comments.

I dont give a ****, I love this team and never give up on a Broncos season until the whistle blows on it.

How low we have sunk (to the Chief fans level) to be all giddy about prospectively being able to win the division. After 13 years ago, I actually thought we'd realized what the real prize is and you don't have to win the division to get it. Of course, after yesterday I'd be happy to just win a game.....that it looked like the Broncos played hard and smart to win.

It is hard to have faith in this teams abilities to get into the post season after the beating we received at home from the Oakland Raiders.

2-4 was not a terrible record considering the competitive nature of our games against harder opponents, but losing to Oakland like that at home is unacceptable. I hope our players and coaches have a short memory and can mentally get through what happened on Sunday, however I feel there will be residual impacts from the loss as the season begins to move on.

2-5 is not where most of us thought we would be after seven games this season. Most everyone would agree that it is neither promising or acceptable. Mathematically, yeah, we have a chance to get there -- but do you even think it is realistic?

Kansas City can run the ball and put up points. San Diego is still a competitive divisional rival and those games are never easy. Those four games aren't going to be easy, and after yesterday, going to Oakland isn't going to be a scratch-n-sniff victory either.

I'm not even aware of the rest of our opponents, but basically -- the way I see it -- we can only lose twice the whole way out if we want the division. Too much bad stuff piled up already (emotionally, physically, etc.) for us to be competitive moving forward. . . and that doesn't even include questions regarding personnel and play-calling.

Sorry, I just don't see it.

Like I said in another thread name one team to get beat down like this at home that still made the playoffs let alone won the division. We just don't have enough talent to over come the injuries and the poor front office we have. The only way I could see it is if we didn't lose another game vs the AFC west teams and after yesterday I don't see how anyone can believe that is going to happen.

1989 Steelers.lost at home 51-0 to a division rival (Browns), but finished 9-7 and a wild card team.

1946 Giants lost 56-7 at home to the Bears, ended up 6-4-1 and division champs.

1948 Colts lost at home to SF 56-14, and made the playoffs at 7-7.

1993 Lions lost 55-17 at home to SF, ended up 10-6 and division champs.

Unfortunately, all of the above winning teams were also division champs (except for '48 49ers, who were 12-2 and behind a 14-0 Browns team), and were therefore pretty good. No team has ever lost to a non-playoff caliber team at home that big and gone on to the playoffs.

San Fran (neutral field)

STL
@KC
@AZ
@OAK
HOU

Not exactly a murder's row of teams there.

It really boils down to just two things though: Do we start getting healthy and do we start playing like a team of professionals?

We've been a mistake prone team for the entire season. Penalties gave away the Jacksonville game. Failure of execution lost the Colts game. A single penalty cost us the Jets game. On Sunday we spotted the Raiders 21 points before we ran our third offensive play. The only team that has beaten the Broncos this year without significant help from the Broncos was the Ravens, at Baltimore. If that is the standard of what it takes to beat a generally mistake free Broncos team down a good portion of our starters then I'd say eliminating the mistakes makes nearly winning out seem like a relatively easy task, since not a team on our schedule compares with Baltimore.

And much of that is on the back of 1. not having Moreno for most of the games so far and 2. getting ran all over by the Raiders on Sunday.

This defense held Chris Johnson under a 100 while not just giving up against the pass.

They've had two monumentally bad running games. Otherwise they're middle of the pack at stopping the run. With Moreno back the team has ran for more than twice as many yards per game on average than they were without him.

Again, if our guys actually get healthy and play like they're capable of this team could put a very strong run up against that relatively soft schedule. I'm not saying they will, just that more amazing things have happened in the NFL. Its entirely possible this team will go to London and let San Fran take the game from them, effectively mailing in the rest of the season too. I'd like to think the wouldn't, but both scenarios have a greater than negligible chance of happening.

We just lost to San Fran and Oak...can we honestly expect to be considered good enough to win half of the remaining games?

I would like to see the team start a game with a purpose and not flop around aimlessly until late in the 2nd quarter or the 2nd half before they can get something going.

I can't remember watching a team that is so rudderless to begin a game. It is like watching a boxer who's plan is to take punches hoping to find a flaw in the opponnent only to get punch drunk or knocked out before he figures out a way to win.
