I keep hearing people trying to compare the Denver Broncos from last year to this year. It seems every where I read it is the same thing Denver has been 3-0 now for 3 years straight it does not mean anything.  Well to those of you that feel this way it is your god given right to be down on a team that well has not shown much in 4 years. But hear me out before you jump that band wagon. Denver won a game in Ohio that was very close and in most peoples eyes was a miracle and that the Bengals are a bad team.

I say your wrong the Bengals have made some strides on that team and they are no where near as bad as the raiders or the browns however we held a good team to 7 points. So Denver from last year did some of the same things but in a different way your talking about a Denver team who put up 30+ points each one of those games and the other teams (besides the terribad Raiders) put up at least 21. Your talking about a Denver D that allowed 450+ total yards all year and had only 13 turnovers all season. Your talking about an Offence that was destined for long passes get up on a team quick and coast this was the way Mike ran his team and it worked for years but over the last 5 seasons his offense became easy to read and his defense was bottom of the NFL.

This new Denver team is nothing like the one you saw last year for many reasons but more importantly then that it is not the same style of football. The old system was like the Saints system they have now defense stop a few plays our offense will put up 30+ points and we will win in a possession match. This style we have now is nothing like it it is a system of playing smart mistake free football get up and play conservative. We last year ran a 4-3 D with linebackers who were quick on their feet not known for their huge hits and a D line that is well not very good in that scheme. The 3-4 is a better fit for the line backing core we have since they can drop back into coverage and we have a better way to pass rush.


So this Denver team is diffrent and could be a problem for even the best teams in the NFL they are not the best but give it time and this Denver team could be a great post season team.
