2009 defense paired with the 2008 offense (IE JAY CUTLER)= 11 wins this year.

Our best unit in 2008 was our YOUNG offense

Our best unit in 2009 is our OLDEST in the league secondary

by the VERY definition of OLD Vs YOUNG--no one of sound mind can come to the conclusion that the 2009 Broncos have a 'brighter future'

the offense is just as young though.....if not younger (Moreno)

The defense was young last year, but it was the worst defense ever.......... these older players are just stop gaps. So i disagree and my mom tells me I have a sound mind so I am going with that

Yep. The 2009 Broncos would have walked all over the 2008 Broncos.

Look at the schedules ffs. Look at who we've beaten in 09, Dallas, San Diego and New England. Look at who we should've beaten (Indy).

Look at how we've performed considering the majority of the players had to learn new schemes and most are still adjusting.

09 wins hands down.

The scores don't show it but we were in every single game we lost. Against some strong teams.

Last years team can't claim that.

So if the 2008 Offense put 35 points on the 2009 team. The 2009 team would come out on top?

I'd say the 09 Broncos are better, but not by a whole lot. Much better defense. The offense certainly isn't as good. A better defense with an offense that protects the ball leads to more wins than a passing O that lights it up without much help from the running game and no help from the defense.

Both teams were blown out multiple times and lost games that to teams that weren't as good as them. But the 09 team at least has had some quality wins.

I'd argue we were only "blown out" once. (to SD).

We were blown out once all season... a game we played without our starting QB.

If we played San Diego next week, we'd play a tight game.

We played San Diego at the end of last year with a healthy starting QB and mostly healthy team and were embarrassed.


It's not even close. In one year, we've greatly improved the quality of our team.

Tough to say. I'd probably go with 2008.

I would say the pass rush on this year's team would give us a legup on the offense from last year but I don't think that would be the case. Our OLine could pass block like crazy last season and would give Cutler time to throw the ball... and throw he would.

Last year's defense was horrendous but this year's offense is the same.

Not really going to get into it with the offense comment. It's not horrible. It's practically the same.

Anyway. Nolan would have easily stopped Cutler. He managed to get Manning to have his worst game of the year. You really think Cutler could have thrown (successfully) against our secondary dropping into coverage when Manning and few other QBs this year have?

Hows this...

The 2008 Broncos met the 2009 Broncos in the last game of the season with a play off berth on the line. Who wins that?

I predict its like 2 old ladies at the grocery eyeballing the last dozen eggs. "You take it." "Oh, I wouldnt dream of it, you take it." "Oh, I just remembered I have a stash of eggs at home, go ahead." "Oh, contrary, I insist you take it."

I'll say what everyone already knows

09 defense is better
08 offense was better

I still think the 08 team was up-and-coming while the 09 time has go nowhere players like Orton at key spots as well as an aging secondary.
