Default Week 3 Power Polls

This oughtta piss you off. Fox Sports has us at 17 - below every single 2-1 team and just above the 0-3 Titans. Bengals at 13.

WORSE THAN RECORD: I'm very skeptical of Denver's 3-0 mark posted against Cincy, Cleveland and Oakland (combined 2-7), but the Broncos' revamped defense has still given up just 16 points in three games. That's impressive, even if two were against Brady Quinn and JaMarcus Russell. Still, get ready for the next three games for a more accurate depiction of Josh McDaniels' squad vs. Cowboys, vs. Patriots, at Chargers. THIS WEEK: vs. Cowboys (2-1)

Just ahead of the 0-3 Titans. Makes total sense.

The Broncos are flying under the radar as far as the media goes, but you know they have the attention of the AFC/AFC west and the rest of the teams the Broncos play. Chargers fans wouldnt be browsing Broncos message boards and talking trash if we didnt. Watched Dallas last night. They aren't that good. They will have they're hands full with the Broncos.

Actually, they are a combined 3-6. Oakland has one win. Cincy has two. Take away the three losses to Denver and they are a combined 3-3.

Dear God,

Please let us continue to fly under the radar for a few more weeks. This team is not yet ready to wear a bullseye. Hope all is well up there and thanks for everything, especially sex.

Sincerely,

A. Sinner

Considering 90% of this board was in agreement that we should be a "mid 20s" ranked team in the preseason, and most of that 90% had us going 3-0 at this point, I don't really have a problem with 17.

If they win this weekend, you will get your wish and see jump of at least 5 slots. But be careful what you wish for. It's more fun to be the underdog IMO.

I love it. Screw Fox Sports.

If we'd just barely gotten by Jokeland and the Mistake by the Lake, they'd have a point, but we slaughtered those fools.

Fox Sports rankings - 'cause it's ALL about the winning QB (that's all the comments refer to) ... not the defense causing turnovers, opposing QB's choking in the 4th quarter, or kickers choking on easy kicks. It's all about winning QBs! :puke:

Did anyone else notice that they only list FOUR teams as being "Worse Than (their) Record".....

NY Jets
Denver
Oakland
Cleveland

Wow, that's some disrespect.....

You know whats funny? If we win next week, there tune still wont change. They will just say we have only beat teams with a combined record of 5-9 or something.

Go Broncos!

I love it when these clowns show the records of the team you beat and showing their combined record and list your wins against them as some kind of negative.

Wrong. If we win next week the story will be how bad the boys are playing.

It may end up being accurate but I don't agree that it's "fair". Baltimore, for one example, has technically played an easier schedule that Denver. Are they also overrated? Why isn't their schedule being questioned?

Homerism aside, we haven't beaten anybody yet
You can make an argument the Bengals are good this year, but it's not the same if we had beaten an 0-3 Tennesee per-se
Even though Tennessee may be 0-3, beating them would have carried more weight than beating a 2-1 Bengals. Makes sense?

So, this game against Dallas is crucial. I was actually pulling for them last night to have a strong performance, so they can roll into Invesco coming off a win
That's the type of team we need to play to validate our previous 3 wins
Go Broncos!!!

Even if we win this week, I don't see the rankings improve that much. If we win, wich is a real possibility, it will be a win against a team labled as a disfunctional Cowboy's team that is only 2-2 at that point.

Who gives a crap though as long as we are 4-0 this time next week.
