Denver Broncos: Myth, Speculation and Reality

Enough of the preseason has gone by to draw different hypotheses about the performance of this team. Thankfully, we will not have a strike season. Another thing that we can be thankful for is the beginning of a new year and the end of the McDaniels era.

Now that we have a taste of what John Fox brings to the Broncos, the following myths can be brought out in the open:

- The Broncos are ready to win the division

- Tim Tebow will be traded

- Tim Tebow will see the field for more than 3-4 snaps per game when the game is on the line

And the speculation:

- The Broncos will make the playoffs

- The Broncos will beat the Raiders in Denver at the season opener

- Kyle Orton will have a 100+ passer rating by the end of the season

And the realities:

- The Broncos have a much-improved pass rush

- The Broncos have an improved run defense due to a better pass defense

- The Broncos will have more opportunities on offense due to a better defense (but the offense is not necessarily improved)

- McDaniels' absence is worth 2+ wins this season versus if he was still leading this team
