Default Oh noes!

16 other teams lost this weekend too.

Jax was 7-9 last year, Denver was 8-8. Jax was at home.


Only THREE road teams won this week so far:
One of those was GB, who are a SB favorite. The other 2 road winners played Buffalo and St. Louis.

Onward.

I think you may be wrong about 16 other teams losing, some people would say it was 12 (Vikings lost Thursday and 4 teams have yet to play).

Don't point out the obvious to all the supposed fans here, they would rather wallow in misery and say "I told you the Broncos suck!" than acknowledge that this Jags game was very close and the Broncos had opportunities to win this game.

But whatever...

I wasn't happy with the outcome, but I can see the offense has improved. Especially Orton. Defense is learning a slightly different system and our O-line needs work, but these things will happen when you miss pre-season. I can only imagine how much all teams will struggle early with only 2 preseason games.

The Broncos played against a very physical running team on the road in 90 degree heat and nearly 100% humidity. They made some very critical errors (penalties + Buck fumble) that would absolutely bury most teams. In addition, a cadre of key players who are just coming back from lengthy absences due to injury were in the game.

I will give the Broncos this...they are a tough ass team, and will win quite a few games if they can eliminate stupid mistakes.

Also, I can't wait to see what this offense does with Bey Bey stretching the field. Orton is going to have a field day.

Finally...we better get our run offense together for the Colts game in a couple of weeks!

I agree. We are in every game. No more of these blow out losses that seemed to litter Coach Shanahan's final 3 years. Chiefs game last year excluded. These guys just need to learn to overome the hump and it starts with the defense getting some stops.

We lost to a team we should have beaten. Is it the end of the world NO. This team will get better each game we play. Imo no matter if this team goes 5-11 or 10-6 we have alot of work to do to take another step forward.
This is an average talented team that with solid drafts and young player growth in next few years we will be on the rise again. I expect two more top 12 draft picks.

The bottom line is that a team like the Broncos is going to have a tough time REGARDLESS against a strong running team like the Jags on the road in that kind of heat/humidity. The fact that they were even in the game with the kind of mistakes they made is telling in its own right. I have a feeling that the Broncos are going to blow the Seahags out of the building if they bring mistake-free football to the tablle next Sunday. I have a lot of confidence that they will get some of the errors corrected.

I don't care how hard you try to make it otherwise, I will always feel bad after Broncos losses. I'm glad that there are some who can shrug them off. I've always had difficulty with this since I was a kid.

Thankfully, my 4 year old enjoyed watching the game with me, so I was able to find some refreshement in that loss.

Name some teams that won only 2 games out of last 11.
You will not find that many.
Josh started fast and he is unable to adjust once team figured out his style.

same here.....usually I used to sulk for a day or two. After Mira and now Eila have been born, it's not that bad. The Raiders game last year took me a while though.

It sucks, we lost but I see winning more than losing....

Along with your ridiculous abuse of the English language, you are wrong about the Broncos, too.

The Broncos are no where near what Josh wants in a team. Further along then last season, certainly. Will it mean automatic wins? Hardly. Again I tell you reality is not Madden. You cannot change the difficulty to Easy and adjust the sliders so you have an all world defense. No one has "figured out" the Broncos. The Jaguars did not use big play after big play to beat Denver yesterday. They made fewer mistakes, and that does not equate into being outschemed.

You remind me of another idiotic poster with your moronic takes and bad grammar. The only difference is a lack of emoticons.

Plain and simple people had higher expectations this year than the previous years. That is what has lead this to be the most ridiculous overreaction I have seen since I joined the board.

Throw in the fact that not many teams are sharp week one and suit it up for next week. We are gonna win some we shouldn't and lose some we shouldn't. Thus is the nature of the beast called the NFL.

Yeah I dont see the disaster some saw
Jags are not a garbage team, always play us tough, we always struggle in Miami in the heat
We shot ourselves in the foot over and over again with stupid penalties and ST gaffs
and we still had the ball at the end with a chance to tie/win

Dissapointed that we lost, but this does not end our season

Enjoyable thread - gives me hope we have turned the corner on the Shanahan/Cutler fan base polarization. Feels like we are finally getting back to the old Orange mane around here and that's a very good thing.
