Default 16 points in three games. Impressive.

I don't care who we played. This is the NFL, and 16 points given up in three games is a damn fine feat.

Does Nolan go into the Ring of Fame next week?

Just made this exact post on another thread.

We looked better against Oakland than SD did. We nearly blanked Cinci, and we destroyed Cleveland. It's been an impressive start.

Clearly, we can't keep this pace up all season, but it's very encouraging.

I didn't see it. My bad. I've actually had my nose in the NFL game book tonight.

I've got to hand it to Josh - the guy came in, put his stamp on this team, and has delivered nothing short of spectacular results. I could see skepticism right now if we were winning, but our defense was looking like a liability. That's not the case at all. This defense is playing like a unit. Not even the most ardent optimist could have guessed that we'd have only 16 points scratched against us in week 3.

If we go 4-0, this fan base is going to the moon. Dallas is not a must win, but the implications of going 4-0 elevate the importance of this game. Frankly, I'm as excited about this game as I can remember being for any game - and it's only Sunday night.

The last time I was this excited about a game was the 2005 AFC Championship game. I can't be the only one whose feeling it...

Dawkins is playing like a madman. He has really fired up this whole D.

This guy is your kind of coach and you are going to be such a huge fan of Josh McDaniels that it will be epic.

Remember you heard it first here;

TJ is about to become the biggest Josh homer on the board...

He can not resist...

You know me as well as anybody on this forum baja. We go back at least ten years, and you're absolutely right. He is absolutely my kind of coach. He's practically a young Mike Shanahan - only with a more gambling nature than Mike (I think youth probably makes a big part of that difference - Shanahan was a bigger gambler when he was younger).

And like with Mike, I won't always agree with everything he does - and will even be critical of certain moves. But I'll always endeavor to see the method behind the madness.

Right now, I feel like this team can (and will) win a Superbowl with Josh McDaniels. I really like the guy. It's like baja said... I can't help it. He is my kind of coach.

I still don't like the way Bowlen unceremoniously dumped Shanahan. I still think Shanny should have been given one more year. But that's a different issue. Regardless of my feelings about Mike and Pat, I believe Josh to be the real deal. And Pat gets credit for that.

Both came in under fairly similar situations, with similar backgrounds... both young and considered among the best young offensive minds in the game.

Shanahan came in and got right to work on the defense, and McD and Co. have done the same thing.

I'm pumped with how this is starting. I'm trying to keep things in perspective... but that won't make me any less glum if we lose next week. I just think we still have some issues to address... but maybe not nearly as many as I thought going into the season. (And I was positive going into the season.)

I'm still looking for us to finish somewhere around .500, but a couple games over or under won't shock me. More importantly, I want to see playoff-style football... and a team that fights and improves as the season goes on.

We've got a terrific base of players right now. It's a great time to be a Broncos fan. We'll have our struggles, but I love this team.

This season is set up to play out like catching a wave. As the teams get better as the year wears on so will the Broncos get better just ahead of the curl. We could surf this wave to the SB, We got a real shot at this scenario.

i am loving this guy. i liked the signing and at the time just assumed it was veteran leadership and a vocal guy brought in to fire the rest of the D up and play sparingly. i didn't know he had that much left in the tank. dude is a beast, he just cracks skulls left and right. all he seems to do is knock dudes on their ass and make plays.

What I don't get is how McD can come in here and just flip the switch on D like this. I've been watching Shanahan tinkering with the D for ten years with very unimpressive results, then this guy comes in and it's like, click. You've got to hand it to him. He cleaned out the cupboard on all the Shanahan patchwork, brings in a few key people, moves a few people around, and bang! We've got a D.

Look at the majesty...The Micheal Bay-esque way the wind is blowing his tie back. The "**** that, I'm here to coach football" facial expression.
