Broncos should be heavily favored...fan take

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/denver-...0176--nfl.html


Dear Lord, this wench is a moron!

Quote:
There's roughly 10 weeks until the 2012 NFL season starts, and Denver Broncos fans' excitement is growing daily. With continued positive reports coming out of Broncos headquarters in regards to Peyton Manning's recovery, the upcoming season looks very promising. With an improving defense, and the switch to a high-octane offense behind a future Hall of Fame quarterback, the Broncos should dominate their AFC West division.

While I think it's possible that the first half of the schedule could yield a losing record for the Broncos (with tough opponents like the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, Houston Texans, and the New Orleans Saints), the second half of the season is where the Broncos can really make a charge to the top of the standings. A large part of that is due to the fact that they will have four of their six divisional games in the second half of the season.

It's hard to identify for sure who will be their most formidable divisional opponent. With Phillip Rivers as their quarterback, the most likely choice would be the San Diego Chargers. With head coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith narrowly avoiding being fired at the end of last season, the Chargers will face extra pressure to get the job done in 2012. To me, their schedule looks a little more difficult than the one the Broncos face. While they are playing a very similar schedule to the Broncos, they have to contend with playing away against the Steelers and the New York Jets in the final month of the season. Even if the Chargers take an early divisional lead, they will have a tough time holding onto it in December.

It's a toss-up as to what kind of season the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders will have. Both teams will have new head coaches in 2012 and new strategies. The Raiders made a bold move in acquiring quarterback Carson Palmer in 2011 and after a full off-season in the Raiders organization should be ready to be the best quarterback the team has seen since Rich Gannon. If (and this is a big "if") Palmer stays healthy, I look to see the Raiders show significant improvement this season. However, challenging for a divisional title would seem to be far from a reasonable goal.

Much like the Radiers, the Chiefs' fortunes hinge largely upon whether quarterback Matt Cassel can finally live up to that huge contract he signed three years ago. The Chiefs have drafted a large amount of high-quality talent over the past several years, but have yet to have that talent live up to its potential. A winning record would be a big improvement for this team.

Broncos fans will need some patience in September and October, but I think that the Broncos will prevail in the AFC West in the end.

What a silly silly Donkey fan...

It is so funny how last year before the season started most "experts" were saying we would have a good season if we won 7 games. Well we won 7 games sans Charles, Berry, Moeaki, and Cassel for half the season (hey he is better than Palko). A winning record is and should be expected not just a "big improvement."

We have had one winning record in the last five years.

And that was against a shit schedule.

Understand these things, and understand why we are given no respect that we have not earned.

This means absolutely nothing. It means less than nothing, because it's also misleading.

We've been consistently bad for a while. How is it misleading. The only shot we've had in the last 12 years do do damage was 03. Other then that nothing. Why would anyone pick the chiefs especially when our Qb is amongst the bottom half of all starting Qbs.

Our Qb does nothing Good and very few things average.

This.
Top to bottom the Chiefs probably have the best roster in the division EXCEPT QB, where it counts most. That is why the Broncos are the favored to win the division. Manning will raise the level of play for them, Cassel will lower it for KC. I'm betting the Chargers come in 2nd because they have the 2nd best Qb in the division. Not much separates all these rosters. However, the QB position does. KC has a lot of talent, but not enough to overcome its deficiences at QB.

1. DONKS
2. BOLTS
3. CHIEFS
4. RAIDERS

2 & 3 could go either way.

I agree totally. With Matt at the helm why should we be feared to do anything but pull out a few wins. I think we can win the division if our ground game returns and we play tough defense but if this offense at any point has to fall on Matt then it's over.

If only our drafted talent could play as well as Robert Ayers or Rahim Moore. Then we'd be a championship team.

The Chiefs don't deserve any respect, but that doesn't mean you can be a retard and say, "Duhr Cassel sucks therefore the rest of the team sucks"

i'm not saying the whole team sucks because Matt sucks but i am saying
the Chiefs have a lot of talent except for the most important player on offense.

and it's gonna hurt this team Bigtime.

pretty sure the Broncos won the division last year and a playoff game, all with a QB who had a 47% competion percentage. Go figure.
