Default 3-3 at the bye

about what most of us had hoped for. We had some losses and plenty of reasons to be pessimistic. But after tonight win, I don't buy any of it.

We were in the game @ATL, despite 3 int's. We were in the game vs HOU late. We were in the game @NE, despite being out-game planned on the defensive side.

We have a week off, and the schedule lightens up considerably the rest of the way . I'm stoked to see how this turns out! After 6 games, this is the most optimistic I've been since 2005, easily!

It's a decent place to be at. We've had a murderous schedule and we're still in 1st in the division and have probably gotten into SD's head. I'm happy with where we are at considering all the circumstances.

We have to build on it, though.

If we play decent in the first half we may be 4-2.

I'm happy the team is on a bye now. After an unbelievable game like this it takes some time to digest.

I predicted 9-7, I think they are in good position to be 10-6. AFC West Champs and lets see what they can do in the playoffs.

Small steps. Schedule thus far has been brutal, but nothing says it will suddenly get easier. It definately will not be easier if we keep spotting 14-20 point leads before half.

Great win tonight. Should make the next 13 days bearable.

Should be up from here. Just keep out of our own way. I think we're a really good offense, and a solid D.

I still think we'll land at 11-5. There isn't a team remaining that we shouldn't be favored against. A couple of games scare me (the Carolina in particular), but I really think this team is getting ready to win a bunch of games.

I agree also and tonight was a huge win. I don't expect Denver to be favored in the Baltimore game since it's on the road. I still say 10-6.

3-3 given this brutal stretch of schedule isn't bad. It's not the record I'm worried about, so much as the pattern of getting down multiple scores in the first half. The schedule definitely is much more favorable, but they've still gotta start faster. Saints, @Bengals, @Panthers still isn't an easy road.

I'll take it. Just look at the AFC as a whole right now. Even the invincible Texans got slaughtered and the Broncos had a chance to possibly win the game. Cushing is gone. The key is 2-0 in the AFC West and 3-2 in the AFC as of today. I'll definitely take it.

I was thinking more like 5-1, actually it really isn't that far fetched to believe it could have been 6-0 with even half of the plethora of mistakes.

That's encouraging. Let me spell that out for guys like maven who can't seem to interpret correctly.

BRONCOS GOOD. BRONCOS DO BETTER MAYBE IF LESS MISTAKES. RAH RAH. GO TEAM.

We have to build on it, though.

We have a great opportunity to do just that - build on it. We've got a week to get healthy and rested, and then another week to focus on the Saints in another prime time battle. Beating the Saints will be a real statement game for the Broncos, and could be the start of a very good thing:

vs. Saints
@ Bengals
@ Panthers
vs. San Diego

We need to do better than 2-2 here. 3-1 is the worst we should do. This could be a real fun stretch for us...

If we go 2-2 (5-5) I will be super pissed. That would be epic failure. 3-1 maybe, as long as the 1 loss is not the Chargers. The next goal is beat the Saints and try to string together 2 wins in a row.

lol, I just read some of your posts on the game thread. Dude, are you bi-polar or something because you were preaching the end times over on that thread.

I guess you're feeling better now.

Although more preferable than @NE, Texans, @ Falcons, this is still a tough stretch. Saints, Bengals, Panthers have all underachieved, but they are teams that have the skill position players to exploit elements of our defense. Establishing a pass rush early is going to be critical to go 3-1 or 4-0.

When Decker tripped over his own feet, that play alone summed up the broncos season thus far. We've been tripping over our own feet. Now, let's recover and win this thing.
