    It is only 3 games into the year but with the whole Cutler mess this off season you didn't know what to except from them. It could have been a disaster before it even started for him.
    While they have not beated any Good teams yet; he must have a good handle on the team and the defense is playing better than expected. He is certainly having more sucess than you know who in Cleveland.
    I liked him when he was with us but hate the Bronco's. Wish it was the Chiefs who were winning.
    We'll see them in a few weeks, won't we?

    I'll make my judgment when they play a good team on Oct 11. Their schedule hasn't been that difficult so far.

    I think they will lose 5 straight with :

    Dallas
    NE
    @ SD
    @ Bal
    Pitt

    Coming up. That's not the Bengals, Browns and Raiders.

    The most surprising team are the Bengals, taking down quality opponents.
    They should be 3-0 right now, beating the Packers, Steelers, and losing on a miracle Broncos play.

    The Broncos have beaten the Mangini Browns and JaMarcus Raiders, hardly anything to go crazy about.

    That being said, I do think McDaniels is the best ex-coordinator to leave the team since Romeo Crennel and Charlie Weiss.

    Don't care who they've played, he's done well so far. The way it started in Denver, Cutler situation and having to babysit Marshall aswell as transitioning his team to how he wants them to play was alot to take on and work through for such a young guy in his first HC gig. The Broncos have beaten teams they should have which is always the first thing you look at and ask for but they were far from simple tasks given the transition the team is in.

    I personaly hope it continues for Josh.

    Lewis may have finally found the right blend of malcontents and castaways. They should change their name to chico's bail bonds.

    I thought the Broncos were going to surprise people this year. Still don't think they will get more than 8-9 wins, but that may be enough to win the AFC West.

    Denver's remaining schedule:

    vs. Dallas
    vs. New England
    @ San Diego
    BYE
    @ Baltimore
    vs. Pittsburgh
    @ Washington
    vs. San Diego
    vs. New York Giants
    @ Kansas City
    @ Indianapolis
    vs. Oakland
    @ Philadelphia
    vs. Kansas City

    I'm going to say they finish with 7 wins at best.

    Your probably right. However:

    (1) They could manage to pull off at least one of those games, which would be fine with me so long as it's not against us. We haven't always shined at Mile High.

    (2) Even if they lose all 5 and go 3-5, that's better than most people expected. The pundits were predicting almost the same kind of collapse as Atlanta had 2 years ago when Bobby Petrino walked out in mid-season. I think a lot of people would have thought 4-12 was an accomplishment, so starting 3-0 is a big feather in Josh's cap.

    It's nice to see, as it should buy him a little time. He's made some mistakes, but much of the mess in Denver was not of his making. Maybe folks will cut him a little slack to see if he can right the ship. Winning even one out of the next 5 and being 4-4 at the midway point would be a huge accomplishment.

    Don't get me wrong, I am rooting for him (within certain boundaries). I liked him anyway but he sold me when he said he wore the Bronco hoodie "to pay respect to where I came from".

    Denver's 3-0, and could lost the next 8 in a row before matching up against the Chiefs. It's a very difficult schedule.

    There are three games they should win in their division since both Oakland and KC suck right now plus Washington. That makes seven wins. The way their defense is playing they are going to have one or two more wins against teams they shouldn't beat.

    They haven't really played anybody yet. But still, congrats to McDaniels. At least he's had three weeks to get the proverbial monkey off his back. It's just too bad that the monkey is going to jump right back on in the coming weeks.

    McDaniels wears hoodie "in honor" of where he came from | ProFootballTalk.com

    Tom Brady: "I told [McDaniels] I liked his hoodie he was wearing. He said it was in honor of where he came from. He had been a great coach here and he moved on for a great opportunity with a great organization. Like most guys, when you learn under the best coach probably in the history of the of the NFL, you're taking a lot of knowledge with you. I have no doubt he's going to be a great coach - expect for the game he plays this year [when] I don't care."
