No problem. Once Vance carries through his plans to join the players and cheerleaders showers together, the players are going to be relaxed and ready to dominate.

Can't get worked up over the schedule. Play the games you're given, and win'em. It's called "sports".

feeling 5-11, 6-10ish if Elway sticks with the QBs

Von will get mouthy fast if we regress further, maybe a mega trade to Dallas coming....

Dark Big Gray and Blue Storm Clouds ahead....

Nothing new, really. It seems like we always have a tough schedule compared to the cesspool of an organization in the Northeast. Why should this next season be any different? Bring it on!

So much roster turnover and injuries that these rankings don't mean much.

Every year the preseason schedule is meaningless, as the NFL is pretty volatile. Yet every year people write this crap and believe it.

Chiefs and Raiders records were inflated by not playing a first place schedule, and getting to beat up on the south divisons. I doubt very much it will be the toughest in 2017. I mean, did you see how much bs went into so many of the kfc and raiders wins?

Everyone in AFC West basically plays the same schedule that is the only thing that matters.

The whole of Denver is eagerly awaiting the return of the greatest Quarterback/Coach/Franchise in professional sports to Mile High.

When the schedule is released first thing you're all doing is checking when the Patriots coming so you can get hyped for the biggest game of the season.

Considering Denver has had plenty of success over NE, over the years, not even close to true.

The schedule is inflated by Dallas winning 13, NE 14, NYG 11, KC and Oak 12 facing them twice.

Not that it's an easy schedule but just saying.

Could be worse. We could have Bob Slowik's son on our coaching staff.

...The team also announced Jeff Hafley as defensive backs coach, Johnny Holland as linebackers coach and Bobby Slowik as defensive quality control coach...

Folks on here do understand how the NFL schedule works, right? You play 6 games in your division, 4 against a rotating AFC division, 4 against a rotating NFC division, and only 2 games at the scheduler's whim. Those 2 games for the "Northeast org" are Steelers and Texans. So, 14 of the 16 games are set in stone each year.
