I don't no why everybody thinks peyton is just gon jump divisions wit a bunch of new teammates, coaching staff, & most important new center. Yes the man that made all the calls on the O line & just dominate. I guess ya'll don't remember that barring injury we would've swept the division again lastyear. The only man to complete that transition in modern football was Joe montana. If u want my opinion denver will finish last in our division. Yea peyton in my eyes was the best qb in the league wit the colts b4 the injury but so was mcnabb in the system they ran in philly. Ain't nuttin left 2 do but for Oakland 2 proove everybody wrong. Afc west is our division.

Keep in mind that we're banking on Carson Palmer to do what many think Peyton Manning will do, but Palmer has already speant half a season with us.

I think if McFadden stays healthy and our defense really improves with modern scheming, there is no reason for us not to make the playoffs.

i'd hate to say it, but p manning sure is special. why i think he may falter, is because he is starting with a whole new team that does not work the way he is used to in indi. so all this bronco thing is new to him. everything revolves around manning this season, next season? will depend on how the broncos adapt to the manning system. manning may be a little soft on injury from his past but that won't be the excuse for their lost season. they just need two seasons at least to get in sync. if anything, i still see the chargers or the cheifs in the race. oakland is silently putting it together. just like their colors, stealthy!
