YOUR DENVER BRONCOS ARE NOW A TOP 5 DEFENSE - Edit: dropped to #6 after Bears played their SNF game
 
After nine games the Broncos are ranked #5

Only #23 in points per game That needs to get better and should with the remaining schedule

baja 11-11-2012 07:12 PM

We are the #3 ranked offense.

baja 11-11-2012 07:13 PM

Can't find the special teams rankings.

I think you are sorting that wrong - we are 11th in points allowed per game, before today.

Looks like #10 to me.

11-11-2012 07:17 PM

By the way they are tied for #1 in yards allowed per play. That's pretty damn awesome.

I think JDR is as big a part of this team's improvement as Peyton Manning honestly.

Would be nice if he stayed after this season.

Basically were the most complete team in the NFL. Top 5 Defense Top 5 Offense.

We lead the league in sacks with 31
Top 10 run defense
Top 10 pass defense

Why does everyone think he is going to get a HC job so fast after his horrible showing with the Jags?

Peyton Manning said in the off season he didn't want to go somewhere with lots of change over and I remember them asking JDR about that and he said he had no plans on being a HC right away.

I dont' think JDR would want to relocate again so soon.

I believe we have the best points for points against ratio as well, correct?

Cam Newton was put under duress, hit or sacked on 19 of his 45 dropbacks (42.2 pct) in Sunday's game. That's the highest single-game percentage and total for Newton this season, and the highest number of dropbacks under pressure the Broncos defense has forced in a game this season. Newton was sacked seven times, tied for fourth most in a game this season, and finished 1-of-9 for 8 yards and an interception when under duress.

The Panthers were 0-12 on 3rd down conversions today vs the Broncos. The only other team to go without a 3rd down conversion this season was the Jaguars (0-9 in Week 2 vs the Texans). The Panthers are the first team to go 0-12 or worse on 3rd down since the Bills went 0-12 against the Dolphins (Week 11 in 2011)

And DJ comes back this week also.

Atwater His Ass 11-11-2012 07:57 PM

I would love to see them work an extension for JDR now, before the season ends. Outside of Manning, he may be the best signing Elway brought in. Hopefully JDR will buy into riding along with Manning and trying to win Super Bowls as a DC for the next few seasons before considering another HC gig.

This team has something special in the making. Hopefully can keep the core around for a few years at least.

Broncos #3 in return yards

I don't want to jinx it or anything, but we might just be the best team in the NFL. the pats are our achilles heel and the texans match up pretty well (in addition to, you know, beating us), but we've got just about everything going for us right now.

The great news is we are getting noticeably better every week and have not reached our peak yet. Who knows how much better we can get.

We scored 36 points and the offense did not play all that well today.

This playing an away game in an early time zone against a pretty good defensive team.

SportinOne 11-11-2012 08:31 PM

Let's not get carried away.. We are definitely a contender, but so are a lot of teams. This is far from a well oiled machine. If we plaid Atlanta, Houston, and New England the next three weeks i'm not sure we would win 2. Sounds like blasphemy, but i think it's the truth. We still need to:

Either run block more effectively on short yardage situations or stop calling runs in those situations when we are deep on our side of the field.
Stop fumbling
Stop dropping passes
Cut down on the bonehead plays (kickoff muffs, tripping on own feet)
Continue to learn and develop the no huddle offense

I will say this though. After a full season, a draft, free agency, and another full off season, we should be the favorite to win it all going into 2013.

The team scored 36 but the offense scored 22. Still enough to win, but a poor showing.

That was my point the team scored 36 and the O did not play well. In other words the D and STs stepped up, a sign of a complete team
