Default Playoffs!!!

But... but... but.... but....

**** it, I'm happy to be in!

Never know what happens from here. Looked bad the past few weeks, but hell... this team has had enough crap-luck in the past decade. I'll take a freebie and a chance to watch my team play one more weekend.

Any kind of solid showing will be a big confidence boost for this team going forward. b**** and moan all you want, but we went from 4-12 to a .500 team and sneaked into the playoffs in one season. Would any of you complained about that result before the season started?

Can't wait for next weekend.


GO BRONCOS.

To be honest.... The raiders winning is the worst thing that could happen. we need the higher draft pick. We have no chance at a QB. Our chances of winning next year are really bad.

So... meh.

If Miller can shed that club, we could actually do some damage.

I'm glad to be back in the playoffs, no matter what happens.

I am happy we're in too, but it's not the same as winning and getting it in.

I think we've sucked Pittsburgh in with the deception that we actually suck. They'll never know what hit 'em.

That has been the single biggest blow to this team. Dawkins hurts a lot, but Miller is useless out there... and even looked like he was loafing at times in the first half. Probably wasn't... but maybe he was frustrated that he couldn't do anything.

We absolutely need him and Doom to show up next week.

Beyond that, I think the staff needs to take a serious look at the game plan and figure out how to get a few quick passes out of Tebow's hands. Give the guy a chance to at least make the defense respect the pass.

The Steelers beat the Browns 13-9 today in a game that mattered for them. Just something to keep in mind for those who consider all hope lost.

Listening to players in the locker room right now, there's not much confidence in there (exact same feeling I have).

Fair enough, but as it works out... we earned it by winning games earlier in the season.

I absolutely despise these late season collapses. But, maybe that's why I'm excited. We've got a chance to turn this into something to reverse the **** we've done the past 10 years. ANY positive showing really helps this franchise, imo.

I'm not doing cartwheels, but I'm pumped to have this chance. Broncos fans deserve a break. It's been a long time.

From 4-12 to Division Champs in one season.

Why doesn't it feel better?

Recent History (7-1 to 0-3) always trumps History (4-12 to 8-8).

Who else in the division earned it more? Someone from within the division actually has to win the division.

We earned the title when we beat Miami and other teams that gave us the edge in common opponents.
