FanPulse: Broncos fans are feeling good about the quarterback change

New, comments

The Denver Broncos made the move to Brandon Allen at quarterback and won a game, so obviously fans are loving themselves some Brandon Allen since then.

FanPulse is a polling project put on SB Nation to gather the opinions and insights of the most plugged-in Denver Broncos fans. If that describes you, then SIGN UP HERE to join us and other knowledgeable fans for NFL FanPulse.

After the Denver Broncos took down the Cleveland Browns two weeks ago with Brandon Allen under center, fans have been feeling a lot more confident in the direction of this team than when Joe Flacco was mucking things up.

Broncos FanPulse confidence jumped from a rock bottom low of 8% to 38% in two weeks and even during the Bye that ticked up another few points to 40% heading into this tough road matchup with the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

That will be the first of a brutal five game stretch where the Broncos play four of those games on the road - all against playoff contenders - taking on the Vikings, Bills, Texans, and Chiefs. They’ll get the Chargers at home in the middle of all that too.

This is a topic Laurie, Jess, and I discussed as well on the SSB podcast this week. How many wins over the next five games will Denver need for you to feel good about them moving forward? Obviously it will matter how they play in those games, but let’s just talk about the wins.

I felt like two would be respectable, while three would be amazing. I pick the two win mark, because that would keep them above the .500 mark since starting the season 0-4. I’d feel pretty damn good if the Broncos left the 2019 season above .500 after that terrible start.

The poll I ran yesterday tends to put that 2-3 win mark on the level too, so the big question is - where will they get those two or three wins over the next five games?

How many wins in the next five would be enough to make you feel encouraged heading into 2020?
