Hi everyone, Broncos fan here. Thought it might be fun to have some fun discussions over here. From my obviously biased perspective i cant disagree more.
The Broncos DID have an easy conference schedule, but so do the Pats. In fact, they might play in the 2 worst conferences in the league, certainly the AFC.
The Broncos haven't had an easy schedule. Our 3 losses come from 3 teams that all held the 1 seed at times during the season. All three came early in the season when the entire offense was basically dysfunctional, Peyton still lacked arm strength, and our D was adjusting to their 7th new D coordinator in 7 seasons. Despite all of this the Broncos only lost because of ealy mental mistakes such as turnovers and penalties. Not to mention, the Broncos almost came back in all 3 of these games.
Since then the Broncos have beaten...
- streaking Saints (wk 8) and Bucs (wk 13)teams that at the time were called "the hottest team in football." These teams were both scoring a lot of points making cases for the playoffs.
-Cinnci and Baltimore... Both on the road. (BTW the Pats are 0-2 vs teams over .500 on the road this year.)
-And they never came CLOSE to losing to any of the bottom tier teams they played. (Unlike the Patriot's poor performances vs. the Jags and on the road vs Miami)
While I concede the point that we had an easy closing schedule and havent faced a great QB the last few weeks, the Pats cant claim that they have fared any better having closed with the Jags and Miami and not performing great in the former.
overall I think that while the Broncos havent had a difficult schedule, it wasnt easy either. And you cant discount the fact that, dispite the easy schedule, the Broncos have used these games to work on things and improve each and every week.
I appreciate evrything youre saying. I love good input from other fanbases but...
Dont compare beating the Ravens with MANY starters missing on defense ( they lost to the the CHARLIE BATCH LED STEELERS) and the bungals in a losing skid to playing the Seahawks in Seattle and a healthy Ravens team early in the season. Not to mention we lost those 2 games by 2 points...
A loss is a loss, I'll consent to that. But our 4 losses have come by less points than your three losses.
Our division has 19 wins, yours has 13 which is an average of 2 more wins per team. Not all that close. AFC west is easily the worst division in football.
Both were making "cases for the playoffs." Neither did, and dont amp them up. They were never the hottest teams in football. Certainly not the Bucs.
A 7-9 Miami team would be a top 3-4 team you played during your winning streak. Yes we struggled but we just beat them 28-0.
We will see. We won every one of our games during our 11 game win streak by at least 7 points, beating the teams we were supposed to beat, and quite soundly by that. Unlike some other teams... *COUGH*cardinals*COUGH*
Week 12: Denver versus a team that scored the fewest points in the AFC (to the tune of almost 6 TDs less) and 1 of only 5 teams in the AFC to give up more than 400 points. A team that is overwhelmingly considered to be the worst team in the NFL, KC. The Brady Quinn led KC team had possession of the ball in Denver territory (the 41 yard line) with 6 minutes and 57 seconds remaining in the game with the score KC 9, Denver 14. The Final score was 17 to 9.
Cough Cough....So you were saying something about "soundly" beating teams you should beat??
"There's no statistic that correlates more to winning than turnovers."
