Defense will be rough the first month + of the season...

Even then, 16-0.

Nine wins would probably be enough to clinch the AFC West and I can't see Denver finishing worse than 10-6. More likely 11-5.

Ravens will struggle this year. 7-9 is being generous IMO.


Losing Von for 6 games is not the worst thing, guys need to step the **** up. It will show if the Broncos really have the team to win it all...
Agree 100% we aren't losing to Baltimore. I think a more likely start is 4-2 with the losses coming to Dallas and the Giants. We will beat Jax, Oak, and Philly. Need to find one win between Balt, NYG, and Dallas. We will finish 11-5 or 12-4 which will probably be good enough for a bye.

I also agree Baltimore will be somewhere between 7-9 and 9-7

Too bad the Broncos don't have a Mt. Rushmore QB at the controls of an absurdly loaded offense to compensate for loss of Von. Oh wait.

I don't get why so many think beating Baltimore is automatic. Unless Holliday is gonna rip a couple more back it will be harder than people think in keeping up with them. Flacco will have plenty of time to do his 50 yard floating hucks.

My largest concern for the offense (injuries to key people aside) is that RB is going to bite us in the ass eventually.

Not automatic. I do kinda like the idea of starting the season with the offense knowing it's all on them though. Hopefully Foxy goes in knowing he can't sweat field position or running the ball. TDs on every drive needs to be the goal.

I dont thnk anyone said its automatic. But I would say Denver would be favored to win that one. Its not exactly the same Raven team coming into Denver as last year either.

I know they act like revenge will cover everything. I bet Balt is shaking over our D lol. Offense doesn't concern me but, imo they will need to carry us 1st half of season.

I was more confident in our D last year vs this year so that evens things out by alot. Are we sure our O is going to be on fire week 1 or will it take a few games to hit their stride.

Are we sure there's will be? It's football. Theres a gazillion variables everygame (and pretty much they all went against us in that last playoff game.) I'll trust Peyton Manning in front of the home crowd on opening night. And our offense looked to be clicking just fine last week and that was without our All Pro left tackle.

Because it took winning turnover battle, getting a pick 6, 3 big pass plays one being a hail Mary and some real favorable calls to squeak by Denver last year. On top of that VonDoom go zero pressure last year anyway. Denver wins easily week 1 I am calling it.

Thank you Rich. If the Broncos ride the 6 games to a 4-2 recrod without Von and then get back a top 3 player outside QB in the league watch out


This will then be a 10 game preseason schedule ramping up for teh playoffs

So either 11 or 12 wins.


1 is confident in a win.
1/2 means the game could go either way.
0 is a definite loss.

Well, aren't you saying it could be 16-0 at best or 7-9 at worst? I am not trying to be a dick here either, I am just trying to figure out where the 11 or 12 is coming from.

The sum is 11.5 with a 5.5 SD, so either the Broncos fall on their faces in every big game, or they man up and win em' all like you pointed out. I am essentially assuming they will win half of their tough games with my calculation.

More like better not sit on the ball with TO's and time on the clock. I will go ape**** if he pulls that again. Hopefully Elway set him straight on this issue.

12-4. 1st seed. That all falls apart though if we lose the opener.

If we do, I'll say 10-6 and a 4th seed.
