Anything better than 10-6 would be crazy good football. To make it to 10-6...we have to go 7-3 down the stretch...to think we will do even better than that after starting 3-3...is craziness (Woodyness)!

Did you see that schedule? Heck we have 6(5 teams) games against teams that have a record of 5-22, 3 home and 3 away. Then we have 4 games after that, one against a struggling Tampa team, an injury riddled Baltimore team, a somewhat dangerous Cincy team and the Chargers.

Heck, 10-0 isn't entirely improbable. I don't think we go 10-0, but just seeing the schedule, holy cow. I mean, what team do you have us losing to at home? What two road games do we lose?
Honestly, I see us going 8-2 or 7-3, but it wouldn't surprise me to go 10-0 or 9-1.

He wont be. We will need home field advantage IMO to get to the Super Bowl. Add that I just hope we are upticking while teams like the Ravens and Pats are going down will help out also. SOmehow we will need a big time injury to bring down the Texans.

Well, in my opinion we're just as good as those teams are ...

We can beat the Patriots and the Texans even though we didn't. To their credit they played better and smarter that day.....but monday night's second half showed the NFL what Peyton and this team is capable of when all cylinders are firing.

We need that we can play the elite teams (and above average teams) and play 4 quarters of good football. We have not done that in those 3 losses and played 2 quarters in the SD game. THey haven't proved it yet. THerefore, saying we will only lose 1 game left in the season is hype. Anything over 10 wins will be a huge complishment but not sure if it is good enough to be top 2 in records.

True, but it is possible is it not?

Sure, they've not played a complete game save for the Raiders game....but the 2nd half adjustments made and the way they've been able to come back on those "elite" teams gives me hope and leads me to believe that we're pretty close to playing at a very high level down the stretch....

http://www.denverbroncos.com/schedul.../schedule.html

the remaining schedule is nowhere near as tough as the 1st 6 games.
saints
ravens
bengals
are our toughest games. all 3 are definetely beatable.
outside of those games we got
KC 2x
oak 1x
chargers 1x
cleveland
tampa bay
carolina
at worst I see us going 10-6.

Eh, the juggernaut theory sounds good to me. There's actually decent evidence the theory can become fact.

Woody paige - just like fans in this site..
After win - we are SB team..
After loss - we are one of the worst teams.

Fact - We are an average team that need lots of improvement.
I will believe in this team when we start playing well from the 1st quarter.

I think it's more an aversion to unwarranted optimism. Teams that can't protect the football don't generally go 12-4 or go to the Super Bowl.

Hey, before the 2nd half comeback against the chargers things were pretty bleak. We could have been 2-4 and in big trouble.

4-1 at home - I think we lose to either N.O. or SD at home.
3-2 on the road - I think we lose to Balt & Car, and Cinn is no slouch, or Arrowhead).

Although, I do think if we can put it all together on Offense...we have a chance at a better record, I'm skeptical. Our defense is just not very good. And if we keep turning the ball over....10-6 will be a gift.

I'm hoping we come out of the bye on fire...but, I'll wait to see what our defense can do against Brees before I get my hopes up too much!

Go back and read the gameday thread from the Charger's game....everyone and everything connected to the Broncos from the owner to the ****ing ball boy "sucked" according to 90% of these alleged "fans" who after the comeback now claim they were doing ignorant **** like "reverse mojo" and "keeping it real".....

there's a name for stuff like that...it's called "bull**** excuses"
Some of us are superstitious, and care enough to get frustrated and upset when the team performs poorly.

Go **** yourself fan police.

Well, you just look stupid after the fact when Denver wins and you just got done saying that the defense sucks, the coaching sucks, Need to fire everyone!!!!!!!!

When I get pissed off during a game I will step back away from the computer. Self control. Don't make decisions in haste and you shouldn't type things in haste whether it is on FB, at the office or on a message board.

I like Woody. I think he would be fun to hang out with.


I think he is closer to right than wrong in this article


My concern is how will Peyton handle the coming cold weather.

He was awesome during the '97 season. Denver had lost two in a row late in the season and they lost the division title to KC and had to be a wild card. Woody never gave up hope he had a bunch of "Jagwad" articles saying Denver was going to have payback for '96 loss. He had a lot of optimisim when many people had jumped off the Broncos' bandwagon. I'll always remember him for that. I think he is the one that coined it "The Revenge Tour"
