What a fitting way to open up the season! A new coach and (mostly) a new team ready, willing, and capable of putting another spankin' on the Cleveland Brownies.

I'm thinking it'll be Broncos 24-13.

So, one miracle pass and your ready to believe? I'm still not convinced. The defense should hold the Brownies to 10 points, but can the offense improve enough in one week to score more than 10 points? Don't know. Looks like a 10-9 loss to me.

I just watched the Earnest Byner fumble again. God, what a painful loss.

Byner's fumble was aided by Jeremiah Castille. I remember Carl Mecklenberg jumping up and pointing in the other direction immediately after the fumble and then the TV picture started to shake so bad that it was hard to focus on the images. Good 'ol Mile High.....damn if we didn't lose the magic when they replaced it with Invesco Field.

Absolutely not! Just wanted to throw out some semi-inflammatory material out there to torment the few Brown's fans on the site (where's Rider?).

Here's what I saw last week; Denver has yet to jell as a team and isn't fully immersed in the offensive scheme. The Denver defense is coming along but I'm not sure if they have the right players in the right spot, time will tell. Orton's a journeyman QB and nothing more than a stop gap until we get someone else. I'd like to see Brandstater, their third stringer play sooner than later.

Oh, and Brandon Marshall won't be as rusty as he looked last week.

As for the Browns I see Quinn continuing to struggle. He'll be facing a Denver D that abused Carson Palmer and he's no Carson Palmer. Mr. Quinn, meet the turf of Invesco Field!

The Browns D will have some success against Denver so I'm seeing a less then impressive running effort from them.

Overall I see Denver as being somewhere between 8-8 and 6-10 in their first year under Babyface McDaniel.

I'm a Bronco's fan but think they will choke this week. They did not look good at all last week except on defense. We have essentially no offense until we get a real QB.

1. Mr. Quinn-- meet Elvis, Elvis is in da house.

2. -- Jurgen predicts 5-11.

The more the Broncos win early in the season, the more painful it will be when reality raises it's ugly head later in the season.

Ya think? I dunno, I think most Denver fans are more realistic this time around and pretty much feel that Orton's nothing more than a temporary replacement until something better comes around. Jurgen's prediting 5-11 but I say they do no worse than 7-9 and who knows, maybe they'll surprise/upset a few teams.

Broncos Bandwagon

OK Raider fans, take your shot.

I gotta believe the Broncos win this game. The Raiders are stuck on J Russell at QB and frankly, I don't see it. They blew a #1 pick on him and although he has a rocket for an arm, he doesn't look ready to lead a team in the NFL.

The Raiders have McFadden and he hasn't got any room to run. Sure their defense looked good against the Pats, but T. Brady won't truly be T. Brady again for at least another month.

The Raiders will take their shots down the field. That's been their M.O. since, like, forever. Just go vertical baby! Problem is, will Russell have enough time to get the ball off and will there be any receivers open down field when they do go deep.

I say no. Broncos 24 Raiders 10

Broncos are going to lose both games to the Raiders this year.

I won't be watching this one because the Broncos are so pathetic that the game didn't sell out.

Unfortunately, I tend to agree with you.
