Maybe I'm the only one to have noticed this, but:

In the past few years, I've read Dr. Z's weekly predictions in SI. He only picks a handful of games a week, but he does pick a fair amount of Bronco games.

Almost always incorrectly.

It's amazing, he's almost NEVER right when picking the Broncos.

I decided to keep track of it.;)

Week 1: Dr. Z picks: Buffalo over Denver--Result, Denver 15-14.

Week 2: Dr. Z doesn't not pick the denver game.

Week 3: Dr. Z picks: Jacksonville over Denver--Result, TBD

So far: 0-1

Probably because he almost never picks Denver to win.

:confused:

C'mon NUB, at least give him SOME credit where it's deserved.

He DOES pick us, and when he does, we lose.

When he picks against us, we win.

And, oddly enough, when he doesn't predict the game we're in, we're about .500. :laugh:

I haven't read SI in awhile, but when I did I'm pretty sure he picked against us quite a bit. I think he simply doesn't like the Broncos. I remember he had an article awhile back and he was slamming Champ Bailey and calling him overrated etc. etc. after his big year. I mean, c'mon...

I must've missed that.

Well, anyone who calls Champ Bailey overrated....you know he may not hate the Broncos, he might just be not that smart.

Which would explain why he gets all of our games wrong.:laugh:

We should've never had to worry about this game.

Dr. Z picked against us, after all. :laugh:


So far he's 0-1.

I remember reading something from a guy last year who literally picked every single Carolina Panthers game wrong. It happens. :laugh:

I'll have to watch out for this in the future.

I dont know how his record is against picking the Bronco games, but he usually does pretty well overall.

I mean, the 1st week of the season, he picked 8 games and went 7-1.

Pretty solid.

I think he picked something like 70% - 75% right last year. :salute:

He's normally pretty close.

For some reason, we're always the "upset game" though for him. Almost ALWAYS, and we're normally picked to lose. And when we're picked to lose we win.

And I'm sure he'll pick us against Indy next week, and I'm sure we'll lose:rolleyes:

He's good overall, he is unbelievably bad at picking Bronco games.:cool:

I don't want us to be picked by Dr. Z. Doesn't everyone remember that he always picked the Bills in those Superbowls, and they always lost. It's the kiss of death. :lol:
