Tough week for Broncos fans. Not for me. I watched Peyton get picked off multiple times as a detached, unaffected observer. Was nice for a change actually. Normally I’d get pissed off about the offensive turnovers and lack of a pass rush. Didn’t phase me at all.

I said it before and I’ll say it again: The 2012 Broncos are a wildcard team. 8-8, 9-7 at best, 7-9 at worst (barring injuries).

Mark Schlereth had the audacity to say the 2011 Broncos had a great defense and a great offensive line. He repeated that at the beginning of this season. The offensive line is OK, but saying the defense was and is great?

Great corners maybe. Great edge rushers. That’s about it.

Hopefully the Denver Broncos organization is finally figuring out that edge rushers alone do not make a great pass rush.

Our defensive middle sucks from the defensive tackles to the middle linebacker to the safeties. You see them safeties tackling eh? Pretty impressive ain’t it? The Broncos don’t have that thumper back there, no enforcer back there to strike fear in the hearts of an offense. Maybe Rahim Moore can lay out a defenseless receiver at times, but that’s about it. The Broncos don’t have a defensive tackle worthy of fearing either and their middle linebacker is average at best.

Oh, but I suppose they’re a great defense. Super Bowl bound I heard. All these sea cucumbers over-hyping this team. Just swaying with the tide and its faulty logics. Their incongruity on display for all to see. Their puerile verbal turdage plugging up the true narrative. My compass is true north, my ways are built on a rock and not on moronic, fickle sands.

On top of that, how bad did the Broncos get shredded through the air at times? Great passing teams will have a field day against Denver. Like I said, edge rushers alone don’t cut it.

In fairness, this team is not far away and I give them some credit for battling back in the second half. They have a chance at becoming a contender as quick as next year if they’re lucky in the offseason.

The curse is still in effect and you may certainly blame me for Peyton “Pumpkinhead” Manning’s Jay Hucks the ball then Dort gets picked off-like performance in the first half.

Peyton Manning Broncos

Manning is OK, but please do something about the shape of the head.
