    And we can all sit back and laugh at them as they are doing it. I know I will if we win this entire thing.

    Yeah, it's not too difficult to figure out I guess, but it's a team that many ppl see being very good sooner then latter, so they write about what's going on now. What's wrong with that? I think we are a good story. It's the start of something big here.
    Angry? No. Mildly annoyed? Yeah. To hear these columnists tell it, we're too stupid to figure out what's going on with our team. Not ONE of them has said "this is a young, injury plagued and growing team. Teams like this OFTEN end up being up and down like the Broncos are this year." I'm waiting for that article. I'm waiting for a columnist that actually has a clue what he's talking about.

    In other words, I'm not holding my breath.

    it should also be noted that I'm not one of the folks complaining about no national attention. In the grand scheme of things, it just doesn't matter.

    it's very simple. They're a young team. Made younger by injury. Young teams tend to perform to the level of their competition. Very simply, when they feel "disrespected" or their backs "against the wall," the perform better than when they're expected to win. We've seen it all season long.

    That's it. Mystery solved.

    CPs will be accepted.

    Good article. I've got to agree with some of the other posters here that the Broncos are a relatively young team. They've also had to deal with a ton of injuries. They've got a young QB that seems to be "finding himself" and is gaining more and more confidence in his receivers as well as his own abilities. All in all, I'd say that is the reason for any "up and down" stuff that's going on. I think your team will be fine.
    You, sir, have earned yourself CP for separating yourself from the idiocy many of your peers show here.

    Watching the Broncos click sends a chill down my spine.

    I regularly look at my wife during these times and say "Do you even know how unstoppable we will be when they expect themselves to win, instead of everyone expecting them to win?"

    Exactly. +CP

    In coaching Pop Warner, thats the biggest motivator. Sometimes the moment is bigger than the player, and thats when you break it down to the lowest common denominator. 90% of the game is half-mental

    Great Read!

    It might sound bad, but I like how they just sweat off a loss & look foward to playing the next week.

    Its true, watching Cutler when he gets hot he can make about any throw and make defenses look like garbage! :salute!:

    I agree wholeheartedly, and I think we will see that as these players get more experience. We're still a VERY young team. We will continue to get better and better and better.

    This isn't all that mysterious.

    Here's another reason the Broncos, despite all of the factors that might suggest they have no business being in the playoffs, are on a fast track to the postseason: When quarterback Jay Cutler has a hot hand, he's virtually unbeatable. He had a hot hand against the Jets, throwing for 357 yards and two touchdowns. And he has been getting tremendous protection. Cutler wasn't sacked against the Jets. Allowing only eight sacks in 461 pass plays, the Broncos are on pace to rank third all-time in the NFL in fewest sacks allowed per pass play, behind the 1988 and 1989 Dolphins.


    "When Jay's on, it's a sight to see," Ekuban said. "Just seeing the kind of throws he made on Sunday, in bitter cold weather with the winds swirling in Giants Stadium, and still making pinpoint throws to his targets. We're only as good as Jay is. We feed off the energy that he brings."

    Nice article and CP to you!:salute!:
