Default How do you have it now after seeing 3 weeks of Broncos football

I had us going 6-10 at the beginning of the season because I didn't think the transition for the defense was going to go this well.

Now, I'd have to say going 10-6 seems very realistic to me.

Here's my 6 losses:

@ SD
@ BAL
@ IND
@ PHI
PITT
NE

I let myself be fooled early last year, I hate to be pessimistic but I am sticking to my prediction of 5-11

that said, I hope to God I am wrong and think I will be, but the schedule still looks as tough as ever and we have a ways to go on to be able to piss with the big boys

if we stay injury free, I am probably wrong by a couple games (I had us losing to KC in KC, because it is brutal to win there that time of year but they look terrible)

stranger things have happened though, go Broncos!

About the same as before. I had us pegged for 7-8 wins. I am more optimistic than before for a better season but I am still thinking 7-8 wins.

I definitely think we have a good shot at some of the teams I didn't think we could hang with before

Pitt, NE both are beatable and we get them at home, Washington is a bigger joke than I thought too

9-7 or 10-6 seems realistic at this point. I hope it's enough to win the division.

I said 7-9 +-2 before the season started. If the Defense can keep playing like this we could go 19-0. But I don't think that happens.

Upon further review I see 9-7 +-2. So I see two more wins than before.
If the Offense starts putting things together that could go up.

It doesn't matter who they are as long as we finish ahead of SD in division and conference games. A real possibility.

What a shocker it would be for SD fans, coaches, players and ownership if we made the playoffs and they didn't. I would think that Norvs head would surely be on the chopping block this time.

We beat Indy.... Peyton sucks vs 3-4 Defenses, and they may have just lost Freeney.

That scenario would certainly make Norv's seat boiling hot but Norv might be gone anyway if he doesn't take the team all the way.

If we keep playing like this I like our chances but Manning is more accurate then a terd aiming for the toiletbowl. You can have excellent coverage on those WR's and he will still fit the ball in there. I'm always going to count that as a loss and be pleasantly surprised if we win.

Before the season started I predicted us for 8 or 9 wins

That is 5 wins out of the next 13, at this point I will be suprised if we cant pull that off

Most of the 3-12 or 4-12 people don't even seem to post much anymore and they certainly won't touch this thread.

I had us @ 9-7. We certainly have the potential to do better.

esp if we beat Dallas. We may not yet need to hire a cook who serves a crow dish but we can at least start doing some research on it.

That's true.

btw... has anyone seen Rev? We would need to lose every single game for the rest of the season to make his "prediction".

Under Shanahan, our team had this expectation to win and win big. I don't think we were made for close games. This team is the exact opposite, which is why I can see us beating Oakland again, KC twice, and San Diego once. Consistency is the key. If we continue to not make mistakes we will be in most of the games to the end. We have a shot. I will go with 8-8 but it could bounce 2 wins higher or lower depending on luck.
