One thing I forgot to mention: fortunatly there aren't any major injuries to report for the last two games. I guess the reason I say that is I still remember all the running backs who went down during the last half of last season. Read the line on this and believe it or not the Broncos are a slight favorite going in.

Denver can win if they play smart, be patient, with the O making zero mistakes. We've had success rushing the quarterback lately, that's the part of the defense that has surprised me, although maybe I should not be.

Go Broncos!

I had heard the opening line was a point in favor of the Raiders.

Well the 1st quarter is in the books and it's good to see the Broncos D make up for the Broncos' inability to punch it in on their opening drive from the 2. The Broncos scored after Goodman got the ball back and they look like they're gonna need it.

The Broncos just gave up a gr8 opportunity to pick up the fumble. They look like a bunch of stooges out there now.

But... if we can stop them on 3rd and 16, they're knocked out of field goal range and it's our ball.

Come on Broncos.

Well, I see it but I don't believe it. Bosco 55David proves me wrong-AGAIN! how can the Raiders look that awful-sheesh!

I'll tell you what- WE WILL TAKE IT! Offense done ok, the 2 backs going for over 200 yards combined!! YES!!!

3-ZIP! Who would have thunk this one?

I'll tell you who; nobody.

Not even me.

The Broncos' "lucky" win against the Cincinnati Bengals is starting to look a little better now... either that or the Pittsburgh Steelers are... OVERRATED!

The Broncos spanked the Chokeland Faiders and made them look like boys.

Now maybe... just maybe the Broncos will break the top 16 teams on a power ranking poll. Now let's see if the Broncos can win a game or two over the next three tough weeks. This ain't the Bronco team the rest of the league was expecting I think.

Just listened to Sportscenter...waiting a looooong time while they disected each game ad infinitum...they finally get to the Broncos and spent about 2 minutes saying well yeah, they're 3-0 but the first game doesn't really count and let's face it they beat the Browns and the Raiders...big deal. Next? You'd think it was personally painful for them to talk about the Broncos....they didn't even mention the Raiders....

Bronco Nation of STL is enjoying this, 3-0 to start, but alas the schedule does ramp up exponentially in terms of difficulty over the next five games. But, if we keep improving, you never know...approach Dallas next Sunday with a hardcore, positive attitude, and who knows...

Here's a fun question to ponder - Elvis "The Beast" Dumervil has six sacks on the season - how many NFL TEAMS (not players - TEAMS) - is he ahead of? LOL!

GO BRONCOS!

As a Redskin fan from wayback, I'm hoping the Bronco's can beat the hated Cowboys next Sunday. That would be nice to see in person, but at $380.00 per ticket for section 306 (available as of a minute ago), I'll watch it from the comfort of my great room.

How about Mike Nolan? He took one of the worst defenses in the league last year, completely changed schemes and now has them playing out of their friggin minds. All in ONE offseason. We will get tested in the next few weeks but I'm sure the D will be at least adequate even against offensive powerhouses. The Bengals sure don't look like a weak team right about now.

As for next week, I'm confident despite the fact this will be our biggest test to date. Romo is very hot and cold and you never know which one will show up, but I have faith that Nolan will confuse him and attack the offense all day. The Cowboys have a thunder (Barber) and Lightning (Felix Jones) rushing attack like Oakland, and I think we'll be able to handle them fairly easy.
