Kind of restrictive poll question, but I had to go 8-8 just because we're still a work in progress.

I think 10-6, but not worse. Gotta see the draft and camp before I decide.

11-5. Second year coaches typically improve their team markedly in their second season.

That was my thinking too. I think 10-6 with a wild card berth is par for this team.

Schedule "strength" in March is always a joke. You always have at least 3 teams play wickedly better than their previous year's record said they would. Did we learn nothing from last year? I said 11-5 or better though. So...I guess I didnt.

Mock if we go 11-5, where does the mandatory late season collapse fit into all that? 10-1 followed by a 1-4 December?

Time and time again it's shown that strength of schedule has little to do with the success or failure of a team. There are always teams better than projected and worse than projected while teams lose games they should win and win games they should lose. If the Broncos can improve their interior OL and improve in the 2nd of year of their system - winning a lot of games is not out of the question - but it doesn't have anything to do with the teams they play.

Here we go again with these assinine predictions before training camps are completed and the final rosters carved in stone.

I predict it will snow this year.

Boy, aint that the truth. You just don't know who is going to rise up, but then, there will be an equal number of teams that look tough, but who will suffer through a miserable season.

Marshall's status on the team is still up in the air, and we don't know who we're going to draft. I can't even begin to fathom a guess, at this point...

So If you think they will be below 500, do you select 10-6 or worse?

8-8 is my standard guess. We have tons of question marks and age issues in key positions can they stay on the field alot or not is the question. Our O lacks alot how we upgrade it will be huge key for success in 2010.

You guys really think mock could make a poll and not have at least one mistake?

No way I fall for this poll before a draft. What a mocky selection by if I select 10-6 or worse, doesnt 8-8 fall into that scenario? What about the doomsday "fans" that will have us worse than .500? I smell a rat in Mock's poll where if the team doesnt go at least 8-8, he will have everyone saying that 100% expected better. BTW, we better go at least 8-8 even without Hillis.
