Okay, well tomorrow is the first game for the Broncos 2011 season, and I personally can't wait to smash the Raiders on Monday Night Football! Well moving on from that, last week's poll asked what squad was the strongest going into 2011, and the results were similar to what you felt in 2010. While two weeks ago was pretty controversial, last weeks was a bit more unified, at least in the comments section. Let's take a look at what you had to say about this question.
I voted QB
Von Miller is this years version of Suh. DJ can return to his more natural role and will be more productive. We have a great swing backup at MLB in Nate Irving. I don’t especially like Mays but he should improve with PT. I’ve always thought Woody is an underrated contributor to our team and despite his not ideal size makes an impact. Haggan is great for depth and Mikey Mo looks like a solid guy for depth as well.
Still would of liked to see us sign Barrett Rudd.
This might sound bad but I’m not impressed with any part of our team yet, but I think the coaching has put people in a better position to make plays. John Fox is super cool but I also think Dennis Allen is going to turn this defense around. Go Broncos
This wasn't the huge sweep that happened in 2010, where wide receivers took a huge chunk of the votes, but it still won easily. Linebackers saw the biggest growth, from among the worst to 2nd overall, while defensive backs fell. Quarterbacks and offensive line stayed the same, as did coaching. Special teams, tight end and running back all stayed about the same, and were fairly low on the list. The most surprising thing to me was how low was running back was considering the improvements that were made.
This week will talk about something that we all have opinions on, the record we will have at the end of the season. This is where the metal, or rubber if you use modern tires, meets the road, lets hear what you think the Broncos final record will be. Once you've done that, let's hold ourselves accountable at the end of the year, when I might be forced to dig this article up.
