Yes, the team did, doesn't make him a great QB, I didn't bring up Aaron in this discussion! I was referring to how they reached the playoffs, which now that I think about it, is how the Packers reached the playoffs previous season, thanks to a DeSean Jackson kickoff return. Of course, they won the Super Bowl!

They both lost in the second round. How do you figure the Broncos did better?

The Broncos won a game. Remember?

The Packers got a bye and then choked.

So you consider winning a first round game better than getting a first round bye? I think you are going to be in the minority with that.

A first round bye is the same as winning a 1st round game; both get you into the second round. The difference is that a 1st round bye most likely means you had a better regular season. Would you rather have a guarantee of going to the 2nd round with a bye week or stand a chance of being eliminated in a 1st round playoff game? Be honest now. I don't know one fan, GM, or owner that wouldn't prefer the bye week which is a GUARANTEE of a WEEK 2 GAME.

Broncos officially ink another former CSU Ram. They signed Caleb Hanie to a 2-year deal to back up Peyton Manning. I don't wanna hate on my alma mater but this was a dumb move. Hanie was a train wreck last year when he replaced Jay Cutler.

Who's to say what a better accomplishment is... for one team to make the wildcard spot or the league leader with the top seed. Look at how many teams have won the Super Bowl from the wildcard spot.

The New York Giants came in in the same spot for the NFC as the Broncos did for the AFC... at the bottom of the respective conference leaders.

The Broncos not only went to the playoffs for the first time since 05'... I believe... but wone their first playoff game since Jake Plummer.

I was fully expecting the Broncos and TT to achieve even greater works for this next season... if given the chance.

Oh... and props to John Fox as well. He's not mentioned here much.
