Default What I want to see from the Broncos franchise.

I want to see the BRONCOS in the Super Bowl in 2-3 years and be a franchise that people want to see play on Sundays.

Young coach, young quarterback... it's set. Just need the defense, the attitude and the tougness brought back to this soft team.

It can happen BRONCOS fans!

So as I watch yet another SB without the Orange and Blue I wonder when will be our turn again. I hope sooner than later. In a perfect world I hope the new Defensive coaches can turn some of our near busts like Moss and Crowder into serviceable players and get a few pieces and make a run.

Will it happen probably not but I still think McD and the staff are going to make a difference.

I feel more confident now in the BRONCOS than I have in the last 3 years.

Josh is going to get us back to being a franchise that teams hate/fear playing.

I have alot of faith in Nolan turning this defense around.

Will be back, we will be back!

You know I feel the same way. I like what McD has brought in. I can't wait to see what the draft and FA brings.

I feel it too. After seeing this TOUGH team...mentally as well as physically win another SB, I think if we get tough, we will be there in 2 years. I hope the players hate Mickey-D the first half of the season and then realize when we are 8-2 that he is amazing.

Mike Tomlin was hard on the Steelers in training camp his first year (2007) and that set the tone last year. He wasn't playing any games or going to let those guys think that since Cowher was gone that it was party time.

This year he eased it back alittle in Camp (except for Hampton) and let the team leaders crack the whip on the other guys.


I want to see Josh McDaddy come in and kick the crap outta these guys this summer. Let's find out who really wants to be a BRONCO and who is just here for a check.

Not to split hairs, but that mentally tough team made some big mental mistakes that nearly cost them the game.

How many of you buy the 'A team is a reflection of their coach' philosophy?
What does McD bring to this equation?

too bad we have the worst defense in football.

Tomlin had something to work with when he came to the Steelers.

I agree on the Nolan part. But what makes me excited is who he brought in under Nolan. He took the DL coach from SD, who developed a stellar 3-4 line and the LB coach from the Raiders who had one of the better LBs in the league.

He has surrounded himself with really good coaches. Thats what true leaders do. They aren't afraid to surround themselves with staff who compliment their short comings.

I think our defense will improve significantly just with decent coaching. There is talent there, we just need to make it work.

we need a RB and a Defense before we will compete.

if we get a RB we can get by with a middle of the pack defense, if we don't we need a top 10 defense.

if that's the case, goodbye to the entire defense, minus Wodyard, Larsen, Barrett, Doom and Champ.

i agree. i want our players to hate the coaches, but respect them. i want a Tom Coughlin type of atmosphere between our coaches and players. The players hate him, but respect and work their asses of for him.
