First, because we will be desperate. Second, because we match-up well with San Diego and because we are a more physical team. I feel our strength - secondary, neutralizes their strength - their long passing game and I think their running game is a joke. However, there is a much better reason.
I had been searching for a sign, a sign from the gods that we will win. A sign that Chris Simms has it in him, that we will step up at this critical point in the season and emerge as the team to beat in the AFC West. And then, in my drunken state at 2:00 a.m., early on a Saturday Morning, my fiance made me watch an odd movie called "Is Anybody There?"
1) Right now, we as broncos fans are thinking "Is anybody there?" Is anybody watching over our fantasy season as our qb goes down and our team seems down and ready to lose. Is anybody there? God? McD? Nolan? somebody? Anybody? We feel panicked, unsure, uncertain and worried that 6-0 will turn into just another crushing Mile High Meltdown.
2) The kid in the movie looks exactly like Chris Simms.
3) The movie is about Chris Simms dealing with the loss of someone close to him, grasping concepts nobody thinks he is capable of grasping, calling a guy who looks like LT a "wankerer" and discovering the meaning of life, death and the afterlife with the help of Michael Cane. Michael Cane = McD, obviously.
My head is scared, but my heart is at peace. I just feel that we are a tougher and better-coached team and that, with an entire week of prep-time, McD will have the troops rallied and ready to win a key game. I think Chris Simms is going to kill it on Sunday and I think we will win easily. Maybe it's just me, but I BELIEVE, broncos country, I BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
