And puff out our chests proudly Broncos' fans! We sit alone atop the division - HA HA HA doubters and skeptics! Shanny-lovers sop up your tears with your old Cutler jerseys, and enjoy the feeling of winning our way to the top of the AFC West. That "2" in the left column of the standings isn't shared by many teams. We truly have a football team to cheer for every Sunday.
We're pretty good. Our style looks alot more sound across the board, too. The Offense has a balanced attack led by a QB who hasn't committed a turnover this season and will continue to grow as Moreno and Marshall get their game legs. Our Defense --- whoa, right? We attack! Dawkins is ferocious. Goodman and Alphonso Smith can really play. And who isn't loving Andre Davis and Dumervil? We're winning at the line of scrimmage, too! How many years has it been since we could say that? We might even be a .500 ball club when it's said and done - sorry, guys.
I mean, already it's been fun, right? We've rebuilt from scratch for the 1st time in my life. No Elway, no Shannahan, a coach and a system we had no knowledge of. The new product we're putting on the field looks strong. We're a solid football team again. We can compete because our style is a winning one! We're protecting the ball and playing defense. We mix it up on offense and have the weapons to put points on the board. So what if all this early excitement really amounts to the same 8-8 we've become accustomed to in recent years? Our schedule is tough, and our team isn't there quite yet, so it might. But it's okay. Nobody ever thought we'd be in 1st place, did we?
