I dunno... offensively, they have a lot of nice weapons. They may not be as proven as other teams, but the WRs, TEs and McGahee provide great options for Peyton and they will continue to show continuity and positive production.
It's all defense for me at this point... that's the big area of concern, too much bend and try not to break. Denver has never had a defensive identity, nothing that lasted more than 3 years. Look at what they've churned through the last 7 seasons - 7 DC's.
I think they can definitely win the AFCW... but, that's likely it for this season. We'll see. Baltimore and Houston are two really tough AFC powers right now.
