Horse Tracks: Broncos not making the playoffs?

Good Morning Broncos Country

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Marc Sessler of did some early predictions for the 2015 NFL season, and Broncos fans will not be too pleased with them.

Sessler predicted that the Broncos will not make the playoffs and San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy earning coach of the year awards.

The Broncos are a playoff team on paper, but our editors asked for irresponsible -- not robotically methodical -- predictions. Denver's fortunes boil down to Peyton Manning being the same guy he was before last year's injury. Find me in December if the season doesn't end with Brock Osweiler getting a look and San Diego's Mike McCoy earning votes for Coach of the Year.

Yeah, good luck with that.

What's even more infuriating with these predictions is the love they're giving their golden boy Tom Brady. Sessler predicts Brady will go 12-0 for the season after he serves his four-game suspension.

While I'm predicting an ugly season for Peyton, Brady will return to the field in Week 6 to shred the Colts on national television. Operating as an unhinged fireball, Tommy will detonate 12 straight opponents en route to another AFC East title for the Pats.

I know these "predictions" are just fluff until Training Camp starts, but man they sure struck a nerve with me.
