...For the possibility of a Broncos Superbowl win?

Personally, I don't think they are the best team in the league, or even the AFC. I don't expect them to win more than one play-off game, and wouldn't be suprised if they lost their first game.

However, they are a good team. The have a lot of the ingredients that make for a good play-off team. There's no denying that they have a potent rushing attack, that non-AFC West teams will struggle with. There's also no denying that they have a good defense (although there are weaknesses). It's not our of the realm of possibility that they go to the Superbowl.

Unfortunately, with the age of football bulletin boards, there's a part of my fandom that is no longer about my team. It's about opposing team's fans. As much as I'd like to say I'm above it all, I'm not. I hate seeing certain teams have success, because I despise their fans. It gets under my skin way more than I should let it, but that's who I am.

The thought that Broncos fans have a chance to add to their history makes me wretch. Some of the cockiest f*ckheads in the football world could get a justifiable boost. I realize it's not likely, but I also realize it's a possibility.

Hopefully they can get to the Colts, to get their shit pushed in for the third straight year.

I don't think they can stop the pass either. We could've thrown deep on them all day at Arrowhead. Lynch is worthless against the pass.

The Broncos are very good team but it depends on whether the Colts make it to the AFC Championship game.

A Broncos SB win? I doubt it.

It doesn't look like they've cheated the cap this year, and I'm pretty certain that's a prerequisite for them. ROFL

I've always felt that way about the Raiders, not so much the Broncos, mostly because of the things I've heard Raider Fans say on sports radio. But I am a n00b here so that may change after time.

The Donks are unfortunately going to match up pretty well with most of the teams they would have to face at home.

I think the Colts would demolish them in a match up at the RCA dome. I don't see the addition of Cleveland's DL and a bunch of rookie CB as a difference maker. The Colts problem will be getting to that game. They were flying high a month ago, but the two losses, the death of Dungy's son, the past ineptitude in the playoffs, and a confident NE or Pittsburgh team could be too much for them. I think if the Colts get by that first game, they will win the SB, but I have serious doubts about how they will do there.

If the Colts fall by the wayside, hopefully the Steelers go to Invesco for the Championship game.
I like the Steelers chances at Invesco, because they have a tough defense that could limit damage on the ground and cause the real Jake to emerge. On the offensive side, their commitment to a physical running game could wear down the Donk defenders. OTOH, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Donks prevail in an Invesco match against the Steelers.

NE I think would pose a bigger problem to Indy than Denver, just from a mental point of view. I think Denver would beat the injury ravaged NE secondary to a pulp.

I haven't watched enough NFC games this year to have much of an opinion there. But unless they embarass themselves like the Raiders did a couple years ago, I don't want the Donks even sniffing the SB.

But I am a n00b here so that may change after time.Before I started going to football BBs, I had a general disdain for a lot of opposing teams, but didn't really give a squirt of piss about opposing fans.

Listening to so many uniformed homers and scrotum ornaments has changed that.

Sometimes I wish I could go back to the day when I didn't know enough about the team to get pissed, and I didn't interact with other fans enough to care about them.

I pretty much detested the Raiders, Steelers and Dolphins in the '70s.

I they 80's and 90's, I focused all of that hate onto the head of John Elway.

After Elway was forced from the league for cheating, I had to rechannel that hate somewhere. Gannon made a convenient and humorous target.

The opposing fan thing has entered the picture. I can't stand the thought of losing a home game to a division rival. Broncos' fans would be down right unbearable after winning their first legitimate SB.

I don't think they can beat the Patriots. The Jagoffs and Squeelers, sure.

Bengals they might have a shot, but Carson would torch them Manning style. I don't know if their offense could match the same totals.

Against the Colts, **** no.

Of course, let us be glad the Chargers are not in the playoffs because they would most certainly dominate all that they came into contact with.

Thing is the Steelers would have to win two before they would see the Broncs. Conceivably the Donks could get to the SB without facing either the Colts or the Steelers.

Yeah, but I think it's gonna be the exact same thing that happened this week. Gonna talk about Big Ben and Jake and Blitzburgh and all that....

Nobody even talks a whiff about the Denver defense. They can do all the same things Pittsburgh can. And Ben can be forced into bad decisions just like Jake can. I think both of these teams are very similar... decent QB's who can be forced into mistakes, great running games, a #1 WR that is probably underrated, and two good blitzing defenses who can be totally exposed if they're forced to drop into coverage too long. Really on a neutral field I'd say they're about even... but the game is in Denver.

My take on this is that the Steelers defense is for real.

The Broncos defense is average if they don't get a bunch of turnovers.

You guys havent figured it out yet about Plummer? Wasnt he supposed to be the one (not Brady) to make the huge interceptions? Havent we heard the same hogwash all year about that? That story is stale, boys.

For good 'ol Bobchiefspeeking: the Broncos were second in the NFL this year in takeaways and only allowed 16 points a game. The Pats mustered up a mighty 13 points with only a singular TD. The Broncos D is for real. It's time to wake up.

The Broncos defense is average if they don't get a bunch of turnovers.I'm partially in agreement. I believe the Steelers D is the real thing.

I think Denver's D is above average, but not great. I think they are legitimately good against the run, but their pass D relies too heavily on pressure. If the QB can pick up Denver's blitzes, they get exposed. If Denver doesn't blitz, they are average at best in coverage.

The Steelers should do some serious film study of the second half of that Pats/Broncos game. Brady gave them a list of plays that will eat Denver's blitz alive.

Denver's rush defense really wasn't that much better than ours, and for mostly the same reasons.

They were 2nd in rushing yards, but 1st in fewest attempts. They were 15th in yards per carry at 3.96.

They relied on the offense getting an early lead and making the other team pass...

As for the "few attempts", I think that's a bit of a chicken or egg argument. Do teams stop attempting because it's not working, or does it look like it's not working because they don't attempt it. I do agree that early leads play a factor.

I'm not saying they smother the run, but yards don't come easy. Teams have to suffer through a lot of short gains, but can be rewarded by some long ones. I believe Bettis will be more effective than Parker in this game.

This is true but the same is also true of Pittsburgh. If the Steelers can't pressure the qb with their blitzes, their secondary isn't very good at all. Denver's pass defense is much better than the stats show because they are also the most passeds upon defense in the league. I think both of their defenses are somewhat overated and are not as good as several of the NFC defenses.
