We will face seven playoff teams, four division winners and three wild cards, four of which are away and three at home. The only games that are not against division rivals or teams who made the playoffs are against the Panthers Bucs and Browns on the road.
That's a hard schedule. The Panthers, Bengals and Bucs are gonna be a b**** to play. They will improved over last year.

So... who are the maners that said Yes?!?
Seriously if Tebow stayed and went 8-8 this site would call him a huge bust, one-hit wonder. Since Broncs aren't interested in building team with a young QB, anything short of division title and 2 playoff victories will be a failure. Don't give me the tough schedule crap. Like Elway said, We're going with Plan A. It's Peyton friggin' Manning.

, is this what the Tebow people are going to think when we can't win all of the possible Super Bowls? We don't sniff what we did this season with Tebow. We might win the division but that is because the other 3 teams suck this season.

So glad we don't need to worry about 8-8 or backing into the playoffs anymore.

I have been watching the last 4 games with zero stress. Last year I had to pop Xanax because my anxiety would kick in with all those close games and the 3 game slide to end the year.

Even last night after Oakland pulled the closest it got I knew we had this one.

I am content with 3-4 years of Manning if this is what we get to look forward to.

I don't remember what I voted, if I even did, but to be fair, this poll was made before we aquired Manning. So a 8-8 record w/Tebow and the perceived tough schedule is not all that surprising.

Looks like 6-10 to me as it stands right this minute..

If we get some great draft picks and a couple of key FA and suffer not major injuries could be a 9-7 season..

But KC is on the rise loads of talent, new coach in crennel could be a real problem..
OAK about the same although not sure about their coaching, davis is dead so WTFK which direction this team will do.. I suspect if they allow the HC to call the plays instead of being a puppet, they could be a damned good team..

SAN loads of talent still have norv as a coach.

those are 6 of the games that are going to be tough ones.. the rest are pretty much playoff teams..

I remember this thread - didn't vote personally

Anyway - some nice timely bumps by Bronco Rob - rep

A good read - some early fail but nothing yet from Agamnemonic?

Seriously dude - did you eat some crow yet for that stream of bull****?

They are on the field less. They should be playing with a lead more often. They can send their to studs more often.

Manning will also wear down the opposing Ds with his hurry up O in the rarefied air at home.
Damn I'm good.

Hell no! They need to win at least 13 games + at least 2 or 3 playoff games and the Super Bowl for this season to be a success!

I note this post was your only one in the thread. Guessing you missed the thread until yesterday or most likely did not have the gonads to take a guess when it came out.

And yes I did post that back on FEB 10th just after the announcement of who our opponents would be.

Please note the first part of the post.

I will also admit that after TC I still did not see us maturing fast enough to get to where we are today. I am amazed at how the D stepped up and ST well they are superb unlike almost every team in recent history. Our field position has been great for change and few TDs thrown in for change. Perhaps one of the biggest issues we have had over the years were penalties mostly blocking in the back almost two a game prior to this year.
When I am wrong I admit to it and was on the post in question.

How do it feel to be exposed as a balless poster.

There is absolutely no reason we shouldn't expect an improvement.
Pretty much this, if we're all about bumping old threads.
