  • Since when did 9-7 or 10-6 become acceptable?

    I am curious to know why most poeple on here seem to be okay with a slightly better than average season? Does anyone remember when 12-4 or 13-3 was expected? I don't know about you, but 9-7 or 10-6 to me doesn't seem in line with where the Bronco organization should be... especially since the Broncos are trying to get back to the Super Bowl!

    Thanks.

    it's because it'd be a big deal if we actually had a 10-6 season as of late...

    we can't go 12-4 by blowing the end of seasons and sucking.

    thanks.

      Considering where we finished last year, and all that has happened to our organization over the off season, a 9-7 or 10-6 record would be extremely successful for us. It's a step towards becoming a legitimate contender year in and year out, so most fans should be more than satisfied if we win 9 or 10 games next year.

        Since Mike Shanahan made it a habit of going 8-8 beginning three years ago.

        You have to walk before you can run, and the Broncos had alot to repair before they could once again be serious contenders.

        But I have absolute faith in McD that it will happen in short order.

        He came in with an outsiders unbiased eye, got rid of alot of the deadweight on our roster, and made obvious improvements that were needed, ie addressing the dreadful special teams.

        He changed and updated the scheme of the defense to an attacking style
        3-4, which I thought was a wise move, especially in getting Mike Nolan to agree to come coach it.

        He drafted Moreno to insure the Broncos could become a much better running team than they had been in order to help the defense by employing better ball control, and hopefully, improved field position.

        He has moved to make the Broncos a much bigger, more physical team, which is a pleasant change from the finese identity we have had for several years, which is the primary reason the Broncos got spanked so often by the Chargers and others in recent seasons.

        The Broncos are going to have some growing pains, but they are on the right track.

          after a 7-9 season and a 8 -8 season, 10-6 sounds pretty damn good to me. When Shanny fired Coyer, and let our D slowly slip away, our expectations had to lower to fit the teams slip in production

            When did 9-7 become acceptable?

            About the time we went 8-8 and let a three game division lead slip away with three weeks left to play.

              Well, 9-7 is a winning record. In a sport that's all about winning, you have to start somewhere.

                In the AFC West, 10-6 will likely take the division...of it not, a good chance at a Wild Card.

                A 2 game improvement with all of the changes that has happened on this team...that would be outstanding to me.

                2 games better than medicority. I could deal with that.

                Then maybe the following year I can expect 11-5 or 12-4.

                But 9-7 or 10-6 comes first. If we overacheive, even better.

                  Raising expectations!

                  I thought I would be albe to get some people going on this topic. My feeling on it is this, if we are content with having average seasons, then that is all it will be. Let us all raise the expectations a little. Let us all get back to expecting 12-4 and 13-3 type seasons... what do you all say?!

                  Thanks.

                    Your expectations are unfairly high. I understand having the mindset that you don't accept less than your standards when it comes to your team, but expecting 12-4+? You can't realistically expect such a good record from a team that's changed so much unless you're speaking with your orange and blue glasses. It's been done in the past with teams like Miami but not many predicted it would happen, it was the team coming out of nowhere, with the wildcat, mind you, but still. lol There's a line between idealism and realism, and even 10-6 would be ideal for a team gone through such changes. You don't think Chiefs fans are expecting 12-4, right?
                    Congratulations...

                      I think considering the circumstances (schedule, coaching changes, player changes) 9-7 or 10-6 this year would be very acceptable.


                      Thanks.

                        Agreed

                        I think it comes down to the drama that we've dealt with and the new coaching staff. I will be happy with a winning record

                            I also agree that ten wins wins the division this year.
