    Some interesting perspectives from Brady and BB on the thin air advantage the Broncos gain at Mile High Stadium:

    That being said I would expect BB to use reverse psychology to help his team overcome any psychological advantage the thin air does provide for the Broncos.

    We've all seen games where opposing team players are exceptionally winded, breathing off the oxygen tank following a long run. Additionally I would expect BB to be ready to rotate and rest guys - especially those that have to run play after play like in the secondary.

    But I don't expect the game to be decided based on thin air.

    Nope. It will be decided based on the superior team (denver) having its way with the inferior team (new england).

    BB is right: the thin air is the least of the Pats' worries. Better to be concerned with our running game, the play action boot and the safety blitz (our linebackers cover like suntan lotion on a 19 y/o blond).

    Should be a good game, though. Broncs 28, Pats 24.

    Here's to a worthy oponent. :eat1:

    A pressure tested championship team is coming to Denver for a huge playoff game and not one of you Broncos fans are giving the Patriots a fighting chance. Are you all that arrogant? Last week, this website was nothing but respect for the Jags who got mauled physically by the Pats. I know my brothers and sisters here will tell not to waste my time but you Bronco fans have no idea whats coming at you Saturday. You are about to find out.

    I do respect the Pats. I think it's amazing what they've done the last few years, and their rebound this year was a surprise. A lesser organization would have folded. They're a good team, and I'd be worried if we were playing in New England. But the Broncs at home? You'd better roll straight sixes.

    I've been going up on the roof of my house to get use to the altitude. I really haven't noticed any difference yet.
