Just What We Thought...

Remember before the season started how John Clayton and co. had predicted the Broncos to barely reach 5 wins?  John Clayton thought that we'd only have three wins.  THREE wins!!!!  We predicted that everyone, especially the MSM, would pick against the Broncos in the first few weeks (and probably in weeks to come too).  We believed that once we won those games, the MSM would say, "Well, come on people, it's the Bengals and the Browns.  Anyone can beat those teams."  We predicted that they would make excuses such as that.  To prove that we were right in believing this, I have a little story...

I was talking to my friend who is a huge Bengals fan.  I live in Cincinnati, so this isn't uncommon.  He knows how big of a Broncos fan I am and he gets annoyed a lot because of it.  We were talking football and I asked him who he thought would win all the divisions and make the wild card.  I'll skip ahead to the AFC West.  My friend believes that San Diego is going to win the AFC West, which isn't a huge surprise.  What is a surprise is that he thinks they are going to go to the Super Bowl where they'll lose.  So then I asked him why he thought they were going to win the West.  He said because of how great their offense is and that their defense just has a few kinks to be worked out (more like their whole defense!).  I then argued that defense wins championships and he disagreed a little with that theory.  Then I asked him, "Why don't you think Denver will win the West?"  He said because their defense is terrible and because Kyle Orton isn't that good of a quarterback.  I was totally bewildered when he said that.  I told him that we had the #2 ranked defense in the league and he asked, "Well who did they play?"  The Bengals and Browns.  Then he said, "Well that's why their defense is ranked so high.  Just wait until they play a team like the Cowboys."

Do you see where I'm coming from?  It seems like everyone is against this team; they refuse to believe in us.  We're going to have to go out and prove them wrong.  We could go 13-3 this year and the next year, the MSM would probably STILL pick the Chargers to win the AFC West.  Hopefully tomorrow we blow the raiders out of existance and then maybe the MSM will see that we could be for real.
