Now look at the 3-2 teams:
Hmmm... Point being, the last two teams that played in the SB are on par with the Broncos as far as wins and losses. It's way too early to push the panic button. I'm far more interested in how the Broncos finish than how they start the season, especially if they are "in the hunt" which they very much are.
Absolutely. Mike Shanahan is proof that going 5-0 means dog **** in the NFL.
I am very optimistic about this team. My concern is not about making the playoffs, it's Peyton not playing well in the playoffs. Hopefully he doesn't feel too pressured and can play the same caliber ball he plays during the regular season. By the time the playoffs roll around I feel we will be looking pretty good.
This week is a huge game though, don't kid yourselves.
