Default Broncos #8 in NFL Poll

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...9514--nfl.html

Really, hard to argue with this. Denver will show what to expect from them this week. If they come out and take care of business Denver will be in the driver's seat in the AFC West.

8. Denver Broncos (1-2)
The Broncos earn the distinction of being the highest-ranked sub-.500 team. To borrow a term from college basketball, they've got quality losses -- by less than a touchdown to both the Falcons and Texans, arguably the two best teams in the league right now.

9. New England Patriots (1-2)
A one-game suspension of Bill Belichick would not be unwarranted. You can't put your hands on an official like that, I don't care how frustrated you are. If Mike McCarthy didn't choke the life out of an official with his bare hands, no one else has an excuse to lay a hand on one.

13. San Diego Chargers (2-1)
After beating up on the Raiders and Titans, is this what happens when the Chargers play a good team? They get blown out in a game they were never really in? The game this week in Kansas City will be telling.

23. Kansas City Chiefs (1-2)
Winning in the Superdome is an awesome feat, no matter what the Saints record. It was nice to see the defense stabilize a bit in the second half, too.

25. Oakland Raiders (1-2)
So what if they needed a few gifts from the Steelers? They've still got to go out there and score, and they proved they could. Now Carson Palmer and Darren McFadden just need to prove they can do it for more than a quarter at a time.

Stategic victories... play them again in the playoff, and win then.

I like 10 and 11:

10. Green Bay Packers (1-2)
Tomorrow, I'm going to walk up to M.D. Jennings' car, put my hand on the hood of it, and then see if I can get a court of law to rule that it's legally mine.
11. Seattle Seahawks (2-1)
If you're a Seahawks fan, you've probably noticed the team that's ranked directly ahead of your team here. It's not an accident. You know what happened. Don't argue. Just take your gift and be on your merry way.

Ain't that the truth. I am very anxious to see how the Broncos play the Raiders this weekend.

How good are they? I think we'll find out.

I'm stealing this stat from Rev's Twitter but Brady, Manning, Rodgers, and Brees have a combined three wins

That's less than Luck, RGIII, Russell Wilson, and Tannehill

You can add Big Ben to that list too. If you consider him elite.

Through 3 weeks he is #2 in QBR. Only behind Matt Ryan. Matt Schaub is #8.

He's played against some pretty good defenses so far too. Still 1 and 2.
