    Considering the fact that the Broncos are only getting better, and every other team in the AFC West appears to be regressing? I'd say things are really looking up for our chances.

    To be honest, it shouldn't be about winning the AFC West, it should be about getting that first-round bye.

    Houston and Baltimore have the early advantage at 8-1 and 7-2 respectively. Both look solid in all phases and are the real favorites for the byes.

    New England is 6-3 and I think they will kick on eventually and really push for one of those spots. That defense is only going to make more plays as their younger guys get more experience (So long as they don't wear down), and that offense is incredible despite missing some players.

    For us? It really boils down to staying healthy. We don't have the best depth across all positions. Can Manning hold up for a whole season and not show fatigue? I'd say we have a lot of question marks but should still really be focused on getting that first-round bye.

    Don't worry. We have a secret weapon in Matt Cassel.

    We've lost 3 games this year by a total of 22 points. Basically a TD per game but we're beating our opponents by 17 points per game by average...

    Go broncos

    That's not unique to Decker. Dropped passes have become a problem off and on with all of the WRs and RBs.

    There's an re-adjustment period for all wide receivers who used to catch passes from Tebow...
    He rarely false starts and his route running has improved tremendously. Dropped passes/mental lapses are a problem but it can be fixed in time.

    Broncos Ride!!

    I think Manning would be seriously pissed if we rest staters at some point (which I don't think we will be able nor willing to). He clearly wasn't ok with it when the powers that be pulled that stunts at Indy.

They won their last 3 and the West. Plus the Chargers are a notoriously hot team in the second half of the season. Having said that, beating them next week will be huge.
    I agree with your sentiment. That team had Jay Cutler this one has PMFM.

    There was some sarcasm there Frey but I amended that statement to clarify a bit a few posts later.

    I meant that if this division is locked up I am sure any starters that are dinged up will get the extra time to heal up rather than force them onto the field.

    Playoff seeding is huge. Sadly because of a couple of losses we need NE and HOU to falter a bit to get into the top 2 and get that bye.
