Broncos bucking the experts
Check out who’s 2-0 and leading the AFC West. The Broncos. You had that? Yeah, me neither.

In a battle between former Patriots coordinators, Josh McDaniels got the drop on the Browns and Eric Mangini, 27-6. The only thing that could possibly have stopped the offseason fixation on the loss of Jay Cutler and the ongoing irritation of Brandon Marshall was wins. And the Broncos — even opening with Cincinnati and Cleveland — didn’t figure to get them.

But think about this: Denver’s now beaten a Bengals team that walloped the Packers in Green Bay and they’ve bludgeoned Cleveland. They allowed just 200 total yards on Sunday and, in eight quarters, have allowed just one touchdown and 13 points.

Some props from the MSM? Hmmpf.

Noticed that clayton hasn't said shet and King only complemented Dumervill, and did not list denver in the fine fifteen.Yet listed teams that are 1-1 in there

Heck King even listed an 0-2 team (Titans) in there.

No worries. Let's keep flying under the radar. I really like the heart that I've seen out of this team so far. I think we'll sneak up on a few teams during our brutal run, and I don't see us getting completely destroyed by anyone. (At this point, not getting blown out 52-7) would be an improvement over last season.)

the passion and enthusiasm of the defense has really become contagious. the challenge will be how the defense adjusts as teams down the road begin dissecting the Broncos' new 3-4 scheme and start finding different ways to attack it after the Broncos have played 4 or 5 games.

i'm really excited about the team this year - gotta love the blue collar type mentality of the team.

A lot of dumb mother****ers talked a lot of dumb **** before ever watching this team take a snap.

Of course, most of them were on this board... but there was plenty of stupidity outside this board, too.

Its not that we are flying under the radar, its that people hate admitting they were wrong. If we **** the bed over the next couple of weeks, i guarantee the people ignoring us now will say "i told you so"

Go figure, McDaniels and Nolan may know more about football than the media "experts."

I'm right here. I've been most critical of McKid's offseason and I had them going 3-0 or 2-1 to start. It's the middle of the season when they start playing some quality teams that will truly test this club.

However, I give Mike Nolan all the credit in the world. I did not expect this defense to hold opponents to 13 points in two games. I figured the wins coming via 24-20 or 31-21 type scores. Nolan has the D flying around and hitting people. He seems to have found comfortable homes for guys and putting them in positions to succeed and Dawkins, right now, has a lot more in left in the tank than I was led to believe. Or maybe Dawkins running on half full is just that much better than what we've had back there in recent years. Either way it's a good thing.

The offense improved and I liked the fact that the O came out and played better second half football than first half football, making effective adjustments. I'm cautiously optimistic and I'll leave it at that.

They aren't going to start jumping on the band wagon until we play the Cowboys, Chargers and New England. When we get through those three games we will start to hear chatter from the talking heads. I say if we beat the raiders and win one of those games and go 4-2 through our first six they might actually consider us a good team. If we go 3-3 I say we are in trouble and the pundits pour it on.

The Cowboys game depends on which Tony Romo shows up for the game. They have a very physical defense and a HUGE offensive line, so I think we might have some matchup problems. We played well against the Bengals big O-line but they don't have the talent of the Cowgirls. We need to get Chris Kuper up and running for the Raiders game so he has some time to gel with the offensive if we want to stop the Freakishly talented Cowboys Defensive front.

FYI Legion I'm pretty sure Kuper played yesterday. I don't really care what the pundits think, I'm just excited to sees us play some of these better teams (this starts next week, not in 2 weeks).

Did he, I was at a bar full of Steelers and Bears fans so I was stuck with a small TV with no HD so I couldent really tell who all was out here at a given time. I recorded the game though, so I will have to check this out later. That would explain why our running game exploded.

He is still essential to our success against the Cowboys though, that Quick DT they have is really impressive. It seems like he can be worn down easily but that usually against bigger offensive lines like the Giants though. Good thing for the Broncos the Cowboys secondary is WAY over ratted.

I do think that we need to be cautious and recognise that at this stage the only thing that is guaranteed so far is that we aren't going 0-16 or 1-15. The rest is still up for grabs....

However you would have thought that even if it doesn't last, going pretty much from worst to first on defense would have been a story the media wanted to latch on to....ah well.

Thing is, what I want to see more than anything else in the world, is for this team to play better in the 2nd half of the season than it does in the first. OK, to be fair, if we go 8-0 then I won't be gutted if we go 7-1 for the rest, but you know what I mean.

Soooo many teams of recent years have faded down the stretch, I really want to be certain that whatever we put out there has staying power. With the approach to practice and conditioning completely revamped, I'm optimistic that will be the case, but I'l still be nervous all season.

I'm not disagreeing with you here at all. But your smug, know-it-all approach to posting is also wearing a little thin.
