    The answer to the question is yes it can happen & while it may be a longshot, this year has been so unpredictable that anything is possible..who had the chiefs falling apart after a 5-0 start? my guess is absolutely NOBODY!!

    So let's go over the possible ways it can happen...

    the first & obvious thing is broncos must win out & get to 8-8...there is then 2 scenarios i could come up with where we would own a tiebreak at 8-8 with either the chargers or chiefs but it can only be one & not both at the same time & also there was no scenario i saw where we get in if the raiders end up 8-8 so with that being said how do we get there...

    First win loss column represents a 8-8 tie with Kansas City & the second is a tie with the Chargers...now outside of us winning out you tell me what there is so unlikely to occur other than the raiders losing to the giants...that seems to be the biggest obstacle is the raiders.

    1.Kansas City Schedule
    Kansas City @ NY Jets - W <> L
    Oakland @ Kansas City - L <> L
    Chargers @ Kansas City - L <> W
    Miami @ Kansas City -W <> L
    Kansas City @ Denver -L <> L


    2. LA Chargers
    Cleveland @ LA Chargers - W <> W
    Washington @ LA Chargers - L <> W
    LA Chargers @ Kansas City - W <> L
    LA Chargers @ NY Jets - L <> W
    Oakland @ LA Chargers - L <> L

    3. Oakland Schedule
    NY Giants @ Oakland - L <> L
    Oakland @ Kansas City - W <> W
    Dallas @ Oakland - L <> L
    Oakland @ Philadelphia - L <> L
    Oakland @ LA Chargers - W <> W

    Of course i know the typical responses are why bother, we should just lose out to get a better draft spot & to that i would say two things

    1. does having a top 5 pick guarantee you anything? (answer is no) 2. what is the goal at the start of every season? don't tell me it's not to win your division & make the playoffs?

    so then the question to all you wanting to lose is this...what dam difference does it make if we got into the playoffs at 8-8 instead of say 12-4 or 11-5? playoffs are playoffs & obviously if we manage to win the last 5 then something clearly has started clicking & you are on a hot streak going in.

    Example: 2011 NY Giants were 6-2 & then lost 4 in a row mid-season to fall to 6-6 only to win 3 of the final 4 to "sneak" into the playoffs at 9-7 & guess what they did next? yeah they went on a roll & won the super bowl!

    So as i fan of this team, i will be damned if i ever wish for a loss & sure as hell not ever when there is still a path to the playoffs...you all are entitled to your own opinions but i will never understand hoping the team loses, even though i get why but i just can't ever think that way.

    Making the playoffs is the worst possible thing that could happen to this team if we want to win another championship with the current players
    I agree. It's utterly pointless to want to make the playoffs. The team's chances of winning anything are ZERO.

    Just give him a box of Kleenex and let him sit over on the bench and stay out of the way.
    He hasn't shown he's a capable backup and he's shown no progress as a player, and he seems to be easily injured. He's worse than a 7th rounder, therefore he has zero trade value. He's dead weight.

    Thank you very much. Not sure if there has ever been a more appropriate time for that.

    Needed that laugh this morning

    like 0%, right now it is probably better to get a high pick and guarantee our QB of the future for a bit cheaper. i honestly hope the broncos don't win another game. and then we can draft darnold or rosen. no matter what happens.

    Tank and get Sam Darnold, he was great in last years Rose bowl!!!!
    6'4" 225lbs looks like a NFL QB.

    8-8 just to get blown out in the opening round of the playoffs... might as well just embrace the tank!

    ( He is the last QB that took us to the playoffs and that won a playoff game other than PFM for the Broncos, in a long time, he could have won more than 3 stinkin' games this year.)
    I figured I would just throw that out to get things riled up a bit, its kinda boring on the boards lately.
    Like coach VJ said to the Bronco fans "YOU JUST GOT TO TRUST THE PROCESS"
    The process of losing I guess???
    That statement got me riled up a bit.

    Paxton is Tall
