You all know I was one of the nay-sayers. The haters. The "oh my God we're only going to win 5 games max" people. BUT like I said back in the preseason, I hoped I was wrong. I was DYING to be wrong. And thankfully, I was.

Never has it been so much fun to admit stupidity. Let me have it.

To sum up, from Happy Gilmore:
"I'm stupid. You're smart. I was wrong. You were right. You're the best. I'm the worst. You're very good-looking. I'm not attractive."

We all knew this before you put it here...but I guess the first step to recovery is stating publically what we all knew to be true.

* Confession Even trivial violations of the group's demand for purity must be confessed immediately and thoroughly, often to a large group.

* Thought control: Cults teach their members techniques to stop thinking processes involving questions or doubts immediately. Criticism is labelled unethical or sinful.

I would not classify myself as a naysayer by any stretch or someone that panicked, but I will admit I officially picked us to go 5-11 and I will be man enough to admit I was very wrong

I have never even once taken the stance of a non-supporter, I just felt I was being realistic with so many unknowns

God Damn I am happy to be wrong here

damn skippy. i think its funny you continue to be a prick to people who supported the team after all your bull**** this offseason. i mean, atleast you had the sense to admit you were 100% wrong, yet you offer no apology to the people you were a dick to all offseason for actually believing in the team. but i guess, we didnt predict 6-0 so we were equally wrong, right...

i most definitely did not predict 6-0, i know that. i did think the team was on the right path and was excited to see them play it out, but even the most supportive of fans did not predict 6-0, guaranteed. i thought 8-8, 9-7 given the scheme change, personnel turnover and schedule. if we win only 6 of our next 10 games, thast 12-4, which is freaking unbelievable, and given that we still play SD, OAK, KC, WSH, theres 4 games we should easily win. NYG, PHI, Bmore, and PITT have all looked beatable and weak at times, the colts on hte other hand....

6-10 is a best case scenario, given this brutal schedule. Indy, Pittsburgh, New England, Ravens, Philly, Cowboys, and the Giants? Son of a....
That was my prediction and, technically, I'm still in the game. Seriously, though, I thought we'd see the win curve jump next year but couldn't see 6-0 this year coming at all. Hand me a drumstick and a beak, please.

everyone missed this season... ESPECIALLY me.


No one thought this team would be undefeated through 6

No one thought our Defense would be the #1 D in the league.

Hell, the highest win total I saw all offeason was 10-6...The vast majority of people in this place had us at about .500. As of now, if we managed to **** the bed and only play .500 ball for the rest of the year we would be 11-5.


What we have seen so far is unbelievable... Let's enjoy it while it lasts.

I lost faith in BMarsh. I really did. I cannot believe the repoire and respect that he has for his teammates and coach now and vice versa. What a great turn around there.


Really, though, what a great season... even if we have struggles after this point you have to believe that McD has the ability to pull people together for a common goal. It hase been a long time since I have been this excited about the Broncos!

the only difference is, and the REAL issue that mcdaniels supporters have, is all the people who spent all offseason trying to downplay mcd and everything he did, hes the worst coach ever set this team back 10 years etc. and they had to take every chance they could to tell people who supported this team that we are blind homer koolaid drinkers for giving mcd a chance to coach, and win, games. questioning the moves he made was one thing, declaring his whole head coaching tenure a failure and entire offseason a disaster before letting them play a game is completley different.
