It's obvious to me that if we're going to get to the Superbowl our defense is going to have to play well. I'm not worried about the offense. I don't need to elaborate on how good the offense is.
So what is Broncos weak link? The defense right?
Broncos ranked 19th in total defense for the regular season.
But hold on a second. Remember back in Manning's SB run? He had a terrible defense that year and in the playoffs, somehow they got on a run and played WAY better than their season averages and became World Champions. If our D can just hang on for us -
Check out this stat
This shows the total defense rankings of all the playoff teams. Keep in mind some teams played 2 games and some only played 1. So look at the averages.
Broncos defense is ranked #1 during the playoffs. - New England is #7
Don't forget Broncos fans, we had a pretty good defense last season. Of course that seems like centuries ago and with a different group of players because of all the injuries - but the majority of them are the same guys. And for once in a long time, so is the defensive coordinator.
I believe in our defense - I saw it last week. That game was only as close as it was because SD got a miracle onsides kick (I wonder if Decker was mesmerised by that blade of grass on that play too) Sorry Deck but all is fair in love of football.
Oh but San Diego sucks? No they don't. Their offense ranked 5th in the NFL this reg season. Our defense stepped it UP.
I can taste it can't you!!?
