I was at 9-7 10-6 range. I didn't anticipate some of the D players to step up. Like Carter and Woodyard. 11-5 12-4 is a real possibility now.

I remember being laughed at for suggesting Manning will improve the D too. I wasn't alone either.

#4 Offensive PPG
#14 Defensive PPG

...1.1 PPG from the top 10 on Defense...definitely doable.

I said 9-7 or 10-6 because of the schedule. All of a sudden the teams on the remaining schedule don't look so great. Thus, the chance for a better record.

That being said, we just finished playing 6 good quarters...hardly done anything yet. Let's see how the next 4 games go (3 on the road).

We have 9 games left. I don't think a 6-3 record or a 7-2 record is out of the question. That would mean 10-6 or 11-5.

It's great to be optimistic...but, they have to play the games.

I am excited. Team is going to make a nice run. Hopefully we can stay ahead of NE in the standings.

But...I can guarantee you all my posts have not been disrespecting this team during the regular season. My concerns stem from Manning in the playoffs. When NE has to come in here in the post season I will probably revert back into a non-believer. But, I hope I am proven wrong.

We need kFcDUD to come in and mock us for only being the 3rd best offense in the NFL to complete this thread.

Prior to the 2nd half of the SD game, this team was very frustrating to watch. Good against PIT and handled OAK. Destroyed against NE, ALT and HOU; those games were not as close as some of the scorelines indicated.

Nice to see this team put a complete game together. Hope it continues. Definately things are currently inline to our benefit. But that could change any given week.

I don't think were destroyed vs NE, Atlanta or Houston, I think we turned it over too much in those games. Each time the staff made great adjustments at the half and the D played better. I would love to see our 3rd quarter D stats.

This team is gelling and the schedule is more favorable, as long as stay healty I like our chances for a deep playoff run. Meanwhile kFc fans are hoping for the 1 overall draft pick!

I said 10 - 6 as soon as we signed Manning.

Looks like if we stay reasonably healthy we can do better maybe a lot better.

I talked to one of my chef friends yesterday and he was so ecstatic about losing to the raiders. He is hoping the save Norv campaign is on so KC can get their asses kicked on Thursday.

#1 pick is his (and many other KC fans) super bowl. Little do they know, it won't make a difference when you have the clowns they have making the decisions.

Next two games are away if we were to split them we would be 5 and 4 with 4 easy home games. Hard to imagine not winning the West. Barring a key injury.

Losers love losing.

I admit to being ecstatic that we have Von Miller but enduring that season was tough and I don't want to go through that again.

Fox has done well finding role players to make this team better and had a very good draft this year even after winning a playoff game and picking late in each round. Teams can find good talent if they have a good GM and scout dept.

Completely agree. If I was an owner, a heavy portion of my expenses would go towards having a top notch scouting department with the best in the business. I'm very big on scouting and really believe that's your edge as a sports franchise.

I look at the steelers, st louis cardinals, detroit red wings, etc. and I see why they are always championship type level contenders

Won't matter. Broncos can't win in NE. Texans are the best in the AFC. Then, of course, there's Baltimore.
