That's right. You beat losing teams with devastating injuries or just bad teams.
One of your eight wins came against a winning team and got your asses handed to you when you played elite teams.
This year you play very good teams all year (6 of first 8 games against playoff teams and a MNF game at SD), so the whole "we were 8-8 last year and we got Manning" doesn't help your case.
How many of those teams had 8-8 records because we beat them? Not saying that Denver was a great team but we beat who we were supposed to and an 8-8 team is only a few breaks away from 12-4.
