Grounded - Mile High Report
J-E-T-S JETSJETSJETS!!! I can not wait till we silence this when the Jets come to Mile High (also known, (if only by me) as pound town). Stop with the haters, because the Denver Broncos are about to prove that this ain't no fluke of a team.

"We had Plan A, B, and C and nothing worked" - Mile High Report
I do not think opposing defenses realize just how BRUTAL and PHYSICAL this type of offense is. This is not a normal fast agile QB and OL option system, this is a POWERFUL HUGE EXHAUSTING offense with an OL all over 300lbs(Clady 6'6" 315 and Franklin 6'7" 330lbs.) and a "not your average QB" running the ball.   

Another take on the "no pass" offense - Mile High Report
As I watched the KC game and the comments during the game I couldn't help but think "some of these people don't see the big picture". Nothing since that game has changed my opinion. Let's pretend we have Aaron Rogers as the QB of the Broncos but he poses the same running threat as Tim Tebow.

Could It Really Be That Easy? Answer: Yes. - Mile High Report
The principle is, if a team's number of catches and number of runs is at least 50. you are more likely to win. Brian Shout put together a lot of info, and showed that it does show a trend, but it also affected by things like home-field advantage and turnovers. So it got me thinking, are we achieving the Magic-50 at all this year, and is it true it increases your chances of winning?
