For the few people who visit this site, I want to apologize for how long it has been since I posted something. I will never give up on this site, and I even plan to do regular posts during the offseason.

I want to say that I am happy with 8-5. It is not the best place the Broncos could be, especially considering San Diego is now two games ahead in the division, but it is not the worst either. The beatdowns the Broncos gave to the Giants and the Chiefs were very refreshing to me, and they were a reminder of where we are headed under Josh McDaniels.

Now, even though the Indy game did not go very well, I did see some positives. The obvious one would be the way Brandon Marshall played. But, I was also impressed with the way the defense fought and fought after being down 21-0 and 21-7 for a large portion of the game. The offense seemed able to move the ball, but they couldn’t capitaize on the majority of the opportunities. If they would have avoided some of the sacks, penalties, the missed field goal, and that awful interception, they really could have taken the lead. Also, how often do you see Peyton Manning throw three interceptions?

Indianapolis is, in my opinion, the elite team in the NFL this year. That Denver was able to mount a comeback at all should definitely give them confidence as they face their last three opponents.

I am officially over the fretting I used to do at the end of the season when we played weaker division rivals like Oakland and Kansas City. Shanahan always found a way to have his guys unprepared for those seemingly insignificant games. Well, all three remaining games are significant. Josh McDaniels seems to know this. Hopefully, we will see the Broncos offense firing on all cylinders when they host the Raiders this Sunday.
