Denver Broncos

Can you say Top 10 across the board?! Believe it Broncos fans… except from the computers. They still have the Broncos ranked low, sometimes really low.

ESPN: 10th (16)
They’re converting believers game by game and getting help from the rest of the fading AFC West.

FOX: 8th (15)
After six weeks of criticizing him, I have done a complete 180 and am now fully aboard the Tim Tebow bandwagon. This young man has what it takes to be successful in the NFL.

CBS: 10th (15)
They are a legitimate threat in the AFC West. The schedule gets tougher, but it’s hard to go against the Tebow magic.

National Football Post: 8th (14)
It doesn’t matter if you buy into Tebow as a starting QB, because the Broncos are 6-1 when he is under center.

Walter Football: 7th (13)

Great defense, great running game, clutch quarterback. Despite what certain ESPN clowns think, this is a very dangerous team.

Speaking of ESPN clowns, I sat down with Cris Carter for an interview to find out why he hates Tim Tebow’s guts:

Me: Hey Cris, thanks for taking the time to talk to me.

Cris Carter: Heya big guy!

Me: Big? I’m not THAT big. So, Cris, I need to understand why you hate Tim Tebow.

Cris Carter: Tim Tebow’s can’t throw the football. Tim Tebow’s no Cal Orton.

Me: Cal Orton? But didn’t you watch Tebow against the Vikings? What about his 300-yard passing performance last year?

Cris Carter: Cal Orton’s a better quarterback than Tim Tebow because Cal Orton can throw the football, and Tim Tebow can’t throw the football.

Me: You just said that. Why are you ignoring the Viking game?

Cris Carter: Because the Broncos can’t go to the playoffs with Tim Tebow. If they had Cal Orton, it’d be a different story because Cal Orton can throw the football. Tim Tebow can’t throw the football.

Me: Ugh. I feel like I’m talking to a broken record.

Cris Carter: I once broke my neighbor’s record player, hee hee hee honk honk!

Me: What?

Cris Carter: Say, do you have some cheeeese?

Me: Cheese? Yeah, I think I have a few slices in my fridge. Hey, wait… no, don’t do that! No, you’re breaking the fridge!

*** Cris Carter breaks my fridge ***

Cris Carter: Did IIIIIIIII doooooo thaaaaaat?

The Computers

USA Today Covers: 12th (15)
Power Ratings compute offensive and defensive statistics into one number for each team, while accounting for factors like recent performances and strength of schedule.

WhatIfSports: 25th (25) utilizes its football simulation to rank all 32 NFL teams. To come up with the rankings, each team plays every other team 10,000 times

Where would you rank the Broncos heading into Week 14?

    The fact that the computers have them ranked low is a good example why the BCS system is a bunch of crap! Humans can see and sense the factors that go beyond the stats that makes a winner.

  • Nisse

    me 2, cant help it.

  • E. Halsey Miles

    DVOA has us at #19. Statistically I think that’s where we are. It’s a very curious thing. The results are not matching the statistics, and I am wondering how long that can continue.

  • Monty

    Me too. Feels like 2006 or 2008, when we were winning despite the defensive stats. We bottomed out both years. Difference this year is that we’re not starting hot, we’re hitting our stride in the mid-to-late season.
