Eliminated: Stick a fork in the Broncs, they're done

Of the teams that won today and including KC over Denver they have officially been mathematically eliminated.  The best record Denver could have if they win out would be 7-9.

 

This is kind of a relief really.  I didn't think the Broncos were at the point to do no better than 7-9 this year and had them pegged for 6-10.  So I am not as disappointed about the season as I am about some of the injuries and questionable coaching moves.  Now we don't have to be teased with the outside shot of being mathematically in the playoffs.  Their were some nice things to see.  Lloyd becoming a Pro-Bowl talent.  A young offensive line growing as a unit and still improving.  Knowshon coming into his own the last couple of weeks.  Even Orton showed me somethings I didn't think was capable of doing.

 

 

Teams that would qualify for the Playoffs

AFC East  - NE(9-2) or NY Jets (9-2)

AFC North  - Bal (8-3) or Pit (8-3)

AFC South - (7-5)

AFC Wes t-  KC (8-4)

Denver can’t win the AFC West as of today. KC could lose the rest of their games and still finish a game in front of Denver with a worst record of 8-8.

Wild Card

NE(9-2) or NY Jets (9-2)

 Bal (8-3) or Pit (8-3)

One of the teams from both the East and North won’t win the division but would beat out Denver at a best with a worst 8-3.

 

Denver is clearly in rebuilding mode and don't have the roster yet to be a playoff contender.  I am OK with that.  Let's hope we get to see the future in Tim Tebow for the rest of the season and have something to look forward to in 2011.  The development of our young players is where the interest is in the last four games.
