Hello Broncomaniacs.

Here we are for the start of another great football season.

What a strange long trip it has been, it has been a long 7 months.
Ravens won the Superbowl after an improbable run
Flacco got a huge contract while losing a nice portion of his team mates
Elvis left the building due to fax gate
Welker found a QB out west he could play catch with
Miller dropped a sample and was dropped from the lineup for 6 weeks

and yet here we are where we left off, a game in the public spot light, in Denver verse the Ravens
and Elvis will be on the field. The more things change, the more they stay the same....
well maybe... I'm hoping for a different outcome this time.

Is it a revenge game.... nah not so much. If it was a game to end the Raven's season I might think that, but at the start it just a chance to see if we are ready to start this year off right. Last season Manning took a few weeks to find his mojo and he did in spectacular fashion against the Chargers that led to an amazing 11 game winning streak.

Not sure what the record will be this year, but I think we still have enough mile high magic to do some damage this year. The preseason is over, time to show what we are really made of

Opening day. Let's take a look at how we do opening day. Over the last 10 years we are 6-4 on opening day.
We were 2-1 at home and and 4-3 on the road during that time.

Over the last decade we played the Ravens 6 times in the reg season twice at home and four times on the road
We won twice at home on 05 & 06 . Of the four away game we loss in 03, 09, & 10 but won last year.
The post season ---- We'll let's not go there.

I am hoping for a great year, We got three great receivers in Thomas, Decker and Welker.
I love our 3 running backs, Ball, Moreno and Hillman (If he can hold on to the ball)
I love Julian Thomas as a TE and hopefully the tweaks to the D help us on that side of the ball.

Emotions are hyped for this game. How could they not be. The Ravens will still be a formidable opponent. We just need to play the way we are capable of. Emotions will be running high on the board also so please be careful of what you post. The Mods will be around so please follow the rules of the COC. Contact the mod staff with any issues and report any bad posts.

As always enjoy yourself and the game and let's hope we end the Night healthy and with a Big "W"
Welcome to the new season and GO BRONCOS!

PS - looking forward to watching the game this season with my son Myles. He will be decked out on Thursday on his Broncos Onesie - we are starting him off right! :logo:

Is it a revenge game.... nah not so much. If it was a game to end the Raven's season I might think that

Thats a great statement that all bronco fans need to consider in itself. Its a new season, what happened last year, good or ill, was last year. this year the ravens ARE NOT the same team. The broncos.. well I think the additions are just as good if not better than what we had last year. The things I hope for tomorrow is everybody comes out healthy, the broncos win, and theres no controversy.

Who do you think will be the most outstanding player for the Broncos on Thursday.

My prediction is Wes Welker.

If he plays like he did in preseason, I think a lot of Bronco fans will be double taking. It might not surprise some. And I'm not exactly going out on a limb here. If Wes can stay healthy all season long, the Broncos will be in good hands. If Welker has a big day I suspect the Broncos CAN dominate the time of possession battle, which will be critical until Von get's back.

I know we've all had time to absorb the fact that Welker is a Bronco. And we got a small taste of what he can do in Preseason. But take a moment to think about what an acquisition this is for us again. I can't think of a better receiver that suits Manning's game than Welker.

Here's to a HUGE season on offense.

As excited as I am about our offense this season, I have a lot of questions on the defensive side.


We finished #2 defense last season, but if you tracked the season, it didn't exactly feel like a #2 defense, did it? Personally, I didn't think so. Stats are stats but the eye test just didn't quite measure up to #2 for me.

Broncos need to gel on D and gel early. Von being out is such a downer for Bronco Nation (fans and team). Lets hope a couple players emerge like Woodyard did when DJ was suspended. Even when DJ was out, I had confidence in Woodyard and felt he could get it done. And he did. But this season with Von out (and what I'd seen in preseason), I don't have the same confidence. To be fair, it was just preseason and those questions I have are due to not seeing much of the guys to fill in.

Time to test our depth - I hope the D surprises me. JDR is capable. And we have talent. We've added meat to the middle.

Go Broncos!!

So Champ is out. Do you think this is a big deal? I thought I read that he hasn't been playing as well as he once had so maybe it doesn't matter. Is this something the Ravens can take advantage of?

It's going to hurt not having Champ for outside run support on Rice. However, I think our secondary is pretty stacked and the ones we put out on the field might just be faster (better?) at pass defense than if Bailey was out there against Tory Smith or the other guy, forget his name.

That being said, damn 12 hours to go. I got a full day of work and a softball game to get through, it's going to drag on!

It's been a long wait from last season's tragic ending until this point. My only hope is we completely embarrass the Ravens tonight. I was shocked to see the experts unanimously picking the Ravens. A Broncos win tonight officially takes the bad taste of last year out of my mouth. Not sure you ever fully get over a loss like that but it's a start. Go Broncos!

It's going to be a loooooooong day! I am excited, nervous, anxious and want this game to hurry, hurry up and get here.

I am praying that we put a beat down on the Ravens tonight, especially after listening to NFL Network last night where one commentator by the name if Heath (can't remember his last name, but used to play for the Pats) say that he hopes the Ravens come out and crush and dominate us so they can show that last years win wasn't a fluke.

He also said that we had nothing but 3rd stringers on D.

So, come on Broncos, go for the throats tonight. No conservative play, no letting up. Pedal to the metal all the way!

Yup, so much so that Ray Rice had to invite Ray Lewis to come back, run out of the tunnel and be on the sidelines with them. Very sad that they are still clinging to RL, which to me means, they can't cultivate any internal leadership without him. Boo hoo!

Hi there Carlo Max, how did you become a Broncos fan living in Wales? I love hearing about stories of fandom!

I want to hear over and over...,Manning to Welker, Manning long to DT and what a great breakout run.

I don't see much difference between this game and the playoff game, especially as far as CB play is concerned. Ideally, the Ravens will see DRC, Harris and Jammer, which is not too different from Bailey, Harris and whomever it was.

The big question is, Will our safeties play any different?

I suspect that IF Baltimore cares about this game, they will target Moore and Ihenacho. With minimal Bronco pass rush to worry about, Flacco will have time to get off some deep post bombs against Moore and Ihenacho.

However, I suspect Baltimore DOESN'T care about the game and will not do anything fancy. Why show your aces just to win the first game of the season and let a potential playoff opponent have an entire season to prepare for you?

we need the offense to be on track right away tonight no turnovers. TD's in the redzone, no dumb penalties n keep PM upright...i think we will need least 30 points..

hopefully the ST's will be alot better than in the preseason...

i am a little worried about the defense hopefully JDR can some how get to flacco...im ready to see if the big boys upfront can stop the running of rice n make them have to throw alot...

Ya, I am really looking for Ayers to step up also. We need him and Wolfe to really pick up the slack at least until Von comes back. If we can somehow get even a decent pass rush with Ayers and Wolfe we will be just fine. We absolutely cannot let Flacco hang out in the pocket and launch deep balls down the field like he did in that playoff game.

Looking forward to seeing the high powered offense of Manning, DT, Decker, Welker, JT and Tamme

Just hope we can get enough of a run game to keep the D honest. I'm sure between Hillman, Moreno and Ball they can do enough.

Doom is a loss but was 29 on a big contract. Wolfe was a high 2nd rounder so hopefully he can make the step this year.

Even without Champ and Miller the D has plenty of talent on it.

Also looking forward to Holliday returning !!!

lol at announcer trying to convince me the delay is due to weather. 'cough'

you're selling some commercials

For what it's worth, the NFL can only run a certain amount of commercials during the game. This just means there will be less later...

Possible indefinite delay over light rain showers and small amounts of lightning. The radar shows it all moving well north of the city...surprised someone from NYC has to OK this for play.
