Good answers, Drek. I think it is about time the pessimists understand that the Broncos are not red-headed stepchildren. (BTW: I wonder where that term came from? Dickens?) They are not as bad as the sparkies hope and the pessimists say, but they are not as good as my fantasies would have them be. But they are likely to be competitive with a few second-year and first-year players showing, and the vets brought in should help out seiously.
I honestly think they will surprise a few people and teams, and with a little bit of luck, could actually contend for the Division. Win it? I don't know. Contend? Yes.....
