    Official Game Day Thread: Week 1: 2012 Steelers vs Broncos

    Hello there,

    Another year and it is that time again! Broncos Football!

    Here we are again friends and posters. A new season for the Denver faithful.

    Last year was a roller coaster ride, from the benching of Orton to the Rise of Tebowmania!
    A season that felt like a roller coaster where Tebow took us from 6 Amazing wins in a row, to us squeaking into the playoffs, and then landing a bombshell on the # 1 defense of the Steelers in the post season.

    The same Steelers we face Sunday Night. These are not those Broncos though. Tebow jetted to NY and Elway & Fox landed 4 time MVP Peyton Manning. Welcome to the Passing Game Denver!

    I've heard the pundits laud Manning's ability but doubt the ability of the rest of the team. Some experts are picking San Diego or KC to win this division. Some are calling us at best a wild card. I guess we'll have to show them differently. Rick Reilly is one of the few who has picked us to go to the Superbowl, but only to lose to the Packers once we get there in a reversal of fortune from 15 years ago. Let's take it one game at a time and see how that turns out.

    The Broncos are 11-6 in starting a season in the last seventeen years.
    9 of those games were at home and the other 8 on the road.
    Of the 9 home games we won 7. Last year we opened with a loss to Oakland the previous loss was over a decade earlier in an opening day loss to the Dolphins.
    We went 4 and 4 on the road games to open the season.

    In that same span we have faced the Steelers 5 times in the regular season.
    3 Times at Home (winning twice) and 2 times away. (winning once)
    In the post season during that time we have won 2 out of 3 against them, most recently this past January.

    I don't know how this game will go, it will be a more traditional passing game that Pitt is used to.
    There will be no Tebow option that they will have to prepare for. They will have to cover the receivers though, because the football is going to be thrown, and thrown accurately. I'm a little nervous about our secondary. We have great pass rushers, but how will our safety and corner play look out there?

    We have a brutal schedule ahead of us. Second most difficult in the NFL. I'm excited to see where Manning, Elway and Fox can take us this year.

    As always we hope for a good game with no injuries. The Mods will be about

    Go Broncos!!!

    Manning will play fast and the Steelers will need a lot of oxygen.



    It is time to silence some critics who only started to doubt Manning after he signed with the Broncos.
