    Any given day, any team can beat each other. To say you are not scared or worried, you are a fool. It has been seen on more than 1 occasion that Denver can lay an egg. We have lost to 1/2 of the AFC playoff teams this year, there is no reason to think it is impossible that an outcome like that could not happen again.

    Denver has to come out ready to play and execute the game plan. Limit the turn overs, dropped passes and stupid ass penalties and hope Holliday gets held up in traffic or lost getting to the stadium. No round is a cake walk, all you need to do is go back to last year.
    Yeah, I don't want to have that losing feeling again. I hope they have the mental and intestinal fortitude to go on a run to hoist the Lombardi.

    Yeah, I like day games. There is also some advantage to having the sun glaring into the opposing sideline. Hard to quantify it but having the sun in your eyes is a pain . . . .

    Indy already beat the hell out of the chiefs once. Of course they have a good chance at winning

    The Broncos stomped on the Ravens in the playoffs last year, so fans were right to be cocky. I now just have a reinforced respect for the power of officiating in sports.

    This year's team isn't at full strength like last year's so there's more doubt, whereas last year we were the league's best team and it wasn't close.

    It would be pretty funny to just AFC West our way all the way to the Super Bowl. Colts Patriots, Chargers Patriots, or Chargers Colts are all nice options as well.

    Interestingly the Bengals beat the Chargers in California in week 13 and the Colts molested the Chiefs in KC in week 16.

    The Chargers-Bengals game is really the tale of the two teams that couldn't. Neither is particularly known for their playoff prowess. Historically they have met once before in the playoffs, the Bengals won that game (1981 season). The Chargers have more playoff experience at QB but they have a worse defense and lack a playmaker on offense who can match AJ Green. I think the Bengals will win this one.

    The Chiefs-Colts game will be interesting. The Chiefs won more games than the Colts did this year, and even in week 17 with a crew of backups managed to more or less win a game against the other AFC Wild card. The Colts have been two wildly different teams this year, they have been the team that beat the Seahawks, Broncos, 49ers and Chiefs but also barely beat the Texans and Titans and got plowed by the Rams and Cardinals. If the good Colts come out to play, they will do unspeakable things to the Chiefs, if the bad Colts come out to play, the Chiefs will finally win a playoff game. In 3 of the last 5 playoff games the Chiefs have been in they have faced the Colts, they have lost all 3. The Colts however will have to come out and play a LOT better than they did last year, sadly this years Chiefs have some similarities to last years Ravens, a tough defense, a QB who minimizes mistakes and a strong ground game.
    If Indy can shut down Charles I think they have a good chance of winning. Indy just doesn't have much of an offense.

    Setting up for a partial revenge tour like in 97
    The big difference being the late season swoon that put us on the road for the playoffs in '97. I've been thinking the same thing however. I can't be the only Denver fan that was extremely nervous about KC winning the division.

    Truthfully, I was hoping to get Baltimore back to Denver for the divisional, but I'll take Indy or San Diego. That game easily hurt just as much as the Jags defeat in 97 and it would have been nice to serve them a giant helping of revenge.

    If we do somehow make it to the SB this year, we will definitely be underdogs, though not 13 1/2 points like we were vs the Packers. One thing is certain, the Broncos have got to be more consistent on both sides of the ball if we're going to have any chance of advancing. It was refreshing to see us dominate in the first half vs the Raiders after taking the 1st half off in almost every other game this season.

    We have to score early, run the ball on 1st down more often, make smart decisions on Special teams (quit taking it out from 8 yards deep and getting caught behind the 15 yard line HOLLIDAY), and find a way to use more clock in the first half. The lopsided TOP is killing our defense and the consequences spill over. Those 8 minute drives in the 3rd quarter by the opponents definitely get under Manning's skin and we end up with a few 3-and-outs before the offense picks up steam again. It's been endemic all season and has to stop.

    Fox said he's changed the "I don't wanna hear about you unless you've won the lottery" saying to "I don't wanna hear about you unless you have open heart surgery"

    The funny thing is I took that seattle game as a sign of good things to come. If you recall, we drove up and down the field against them. Running backs fumbling at the goal line are not indicators of poor offensive execution.

    Yep, checked that this morning too. Even 35 degrees wouldn't be too bad...last year was like 5. That's what we don't want.

    The Seattle hype is intense but whatever happens i just have the feeling they wont do it. Call it a hunch or whatever, i predict a choke in the NFCCG. Possibly against GB in a Fail Mary rematch.

    i hope we overcome this year and win SB.
    Stats are great..but need to win a playoff game and then SB.
    Lol, why not add in Elway since he lost three super bowls. Which I believe ties him for second on most super bowl losses by a qb.
