Default Broncos best team in NFL

The Denver Broncos are clearly the NFL's best team right now

DENVER Peyton Manning gets the big, bold headlines from Sunday night's game, but the fine print should include that the Denver Broncos officially established themselves as the best team in the NFL at this point in the season.

What the Broncos did to the San Francisco 49ers, who have gone to the NFL's final four the past three years and were on a three-game winning streak, was shocking. Denver, behind Peyton Manning's 507th, (NFL record-tying) 508th, (NFL record-breaking) 509th and 510th career touchdown passes pummeled the 49ers 42-17. A meaningless touchdown with a minute to go is all that kept it from being the biggest loss of the Jim Harbaugh era in San Francisco.

The Dallas Cowboys have a good argument as the best team in football, considering they also have one loss and won at Seattle, which handed the Broncos their lone loss. But the way the Broncos are playing, nobody should be betting against them at this point. Everything is clicking at an incredibly high level for Denver.

Manning has picked up where he left off from last season, when he had the greatest season in NFL history. He didn't just inch over the finish line to get the record on Sunday, he turned in a phenomenal performance. He was 22-of-26 for 318 yards and four touchdowns. That's a 157.2 rating; a perfect rating is 158.3. Manning's third touchdown of the game, the record-breaker to Thomas, will be replayed more, but his next touchdown to Thomas was his best throw of the night. Manning had pinpoint accuracy on a 40-yard touchdown that made the score 28-10. Manning was so good, and the Broncos were so dominant, Manning was pulled and Brock Osweiler played the fourth quarter.

Denver's running game has gotten an unexpected boost from Ronnie Hillman, who has been a great find with Montee Ball out with a groin injury. He had a pair of touchdown runs, including a 37-yarder. And the defense looks the best it has been in Manning's three Denver seasons. The pass rush is excellent, with Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware, and there's no clear weakness elsewhere.

Can the Broncos win the Super Bowl? Dismissing the predictable jokes about Manning in the playoffs, of course they can. A lot can happen over the next few months so nothing is guaranteed, but the Broncos are the class of the NFL right now. Ask the 49ers. San Francisco isn't bad, and it had no chance Sunday night.

Heard the same last season, and the season before. It means nothing.

So we didn't see the same stuff the two previous years when our team imploded in the playoffs? You think these articles actually mean something? Okay then...

Why so butthurt? It really is meaningless. In October seeing the "best team in the league" articles is pointless. We could come out of Thursday with a loss and this article would be a distant memory.

One was a double OT loss after a bye in the playoffs. The other was a SB loss.

Maybe I'm optimistic, but maybe this team can get to the big game again and win? Hearing good pub is a positive that this team should make the playoffs and contend for a SB. Isn't that all you really want out of rooting for a team?

The last two years have taught me better than that. We had the highest scoring offense of all time and could only manage 8 points in the Super Bowl. That team had as much as hype as you are likely to ever get, and it resulted in one of the worst Super Bowl blowouts of all-time. I have no use for this kind of crappy "journalism" anymore. The Broncos will be the best team in the NFL if and when they win a Super Bowl. That's all there is to it.

No, I'm still really ****ing pissed off about last year. So excuse me if I'm not buying into the regular season champions a third year in a row.

Even if that is true (and it's pure speculation), it means nothing.

I don't post as much, but I'm sure lots find me annoying on here as well, because although this is a very good team, i have this john fox hate. Games like tonight are fun to watch, but I just have this nagging feeling always in the back of my head that we have John ****ing Fox as our head coach and he'll cost us a big game somehow someway. Sorry for the negativity, but I hate Fox.

You and I see it pretty much the same way. I'm not as apologetic about it though. I hate John Fox so much as a head coach.

Every single thing you post is negative and disparaging of the Broncos. You used to post analysis. Now it's just sarcastic jabs at the Broncos and predictions of doom in every way. Every move "bothers" you. Every aspect of the team is unconvincing. You have genuine contempt for the coaching staff and many of the players. You're essentially a bitter troll. I'm going to do what I should have done a year ago and put you on ignore. You are a grouchy, whining b**** who adds nothing to this board.

How weird is it I put a "Bronco Fan" on ignore and took Shatruck or whatever that Seahag fan's name is off? We roll a pretty solid across the board Niner team in prime time by 20+ points and Agotamammorygland is b****ing about the team in every thread trying to piss on the win. Screw him and screw reading his crap ever again.
