I'll be running the predictions here at the Broncos Forums and, with our season beginning in about a week, it's time to predict the Broncos 2007 Record.

Our rosters down to the final 53, and we're getting ready for some football.

The Schedule:

Week Date Game
1 9-Sep DEN @ BUF
2 16-Sep OAK @ DEN
3 23-Sep JAC @ DEN
4 30-Sep DEN @ IND
5 7-Oct SD @ DEN
6 Bye
7 21-Oct PIT @ DEN
8 29-Oct GB @ DEN
9 4-Nov DEN @ DET
10 11-Nov DEN @ KC
11 19-Nov TEN @ DEN
12 25-Nov DEN @ CHI
13 2-Dec DEN @ OAK
14 9-Dec KC @ DEN
15 13-Dec DEN @ HOU
16 24-Dec DEN @ SD
17 30-Dec MIN @ DEN


To me, I see us winning 12 games, but I like to take into account one surprise loss, so I'll put us at 11-5.

Maybe I'm overly optimistic but I see a 12-4 record. Despite the preseason, I like the talent we have assembled and we have a pretty favorable schedule.

10-6...The d-line might be too much of a burden for the team to make the playoffs!

Week Date Game
1 9-Sep DEN @ BUF W - While we might struggle, Buffalo in Sept. isn't formidable.
2 16-Sep OAK @ DEN W - Oak at home, a team that will be trying find their way (oak, not denver)
3 23-Sep JAC @ DEN W - Jax is alway tough, but there D isn't as good, win at home.
4 30-Sep DEN @ IND L - Any given Sunday, but nothing indicates we are capable of beating them.
5 7-Oct SD @ DEN L - Right now I have to lean towards a SD sweep of Denver
6 Bye
7 21-Oct PIT @ DEN W - Ben will be a different player, but Denver should win at home.
8 29-Oct GB @ DEN W - Should be fairly straight forward
9 4-Nov DEN @ DET W - Kitna will surprise people, but a win on the road.
10 11-Nov DEN @ KC L - Wow, will Huard still be QB, what about the O-line? I think LJ will hurt us.
11 19-Nov TEN @ DEN W - Ten and Young will take time to develop.
12 25-Nov DEN @ CHI W - I think Bly and Bailey will make Grossman pay for his gunslinger approach.
13 2-Dec DEN @ OAK W - Is Culpepper the starter? What kind of team will Oak be? Denver sweep.
14 9-Dec KC @ DEN W - Series split. Denver will be getting into a stride offensively by now.
15 13-Dec DEN @ HOU W - Houston still has a ways to go.
16 24-Dec DEN @ SD L - By now Denver should be a stronger team, but in SD I give the edge to Rivers, LT, Merriman and co.
17 30-Dec MIN @ DEN W - If we are playing for something, then I think we win, but week 17 is always tough to predict this early.

Ok, working through them game by game, I come up with 12-4. However, these are the games I can see swinging:


SD @ Den -W- If Denver quickly gets their ship righted and proves that the preseason was an anomoly, then I would give them the edge at home.
Pit @ Den -L- If Denver doesnt't quickly get their ship righted and prove the preseason was an anomoly, then I would give the edge to Pit.
Den @ Det -L- Detroit could surprise some people and finally have a powerful offense. I think Kitna will have a good year.
KC @ Den -W- If Denver plays the way many experts expect following the offseason moves and Cutler getting experience, Denver 'should' win this game.
Den @ Chi -L- If Cutler struggles in the regular season like he did in the preseason, then the Chicago D could make him pay.
KC @ Den -L- If Denver struggles all season like in preseason, then KC could have a season sweep.
Min @ Den -L- If Denver struggles all season like in preseason, then a loss to Minn is very possible.


So, when you look at my swing games, I show that Denver could win two additional games if everything went well, but could also lose 5 more if all went poorly.

So, I am going with:
12-4 as most likely
14-2 as best possible
7-9 as worst possible

If you look at my best and worst possible being 7 to 14 wins, then the median or average (or whatever you mathematicians would tell me the right name is) would be 11, so I could go with 11-5, but will stick with 12-4.

So you're saying we go 10-6 but don't make the playoffs?

That's my reasoning, except I see 8-8 as worst possible and 14-2 as best, so I take the average, and it's 11-5.

Or you could look at what I said, I expect 12-4, but with things not going the way they could, I say we lose an extra game then we should and wind up 11-5.

As I've said before, I originally thought the Broncos would be about a 10-6 team. But looking at the schedule I picked us to go 13-3, including a 9-game winning streak. But I think there'll be a hiccup in the road so I'm putting one loss in there somewhere to break up that streak and make it 12-4.

Of course, I picked us to beat the Jags because Leftwich was going to be the QB. Now that it's Garrard at the helm, I'm not sure what to make of their offense. He's mobile but I'm not sure about his leadership and "it" factor. So, I'm sticking with my prediction as is.

Go Broncos!!

As I looked down through the scedule, I could see that 14-2 was possible . . .
not likely, but possible. But that is if the defense is according to the spin I
hear from the coaches . . . that it is better than the preseason has shown.

What I actually expect is that it will take five or six games for both the DL and
OL to jell. We could come out of that stretch having taken a pretty good
beating.

I'm going to say 11-5. They have 14-2 talent, but there are just too many
players getting used to new positions and/or a new team, which affects the
chemistry of each unit (offense and defense) as a whole.

Moreover, I have been very disappointed in our special teams so far. Again,
perhaps a different unit will show up in the regular season.

We must remember that for each game our team plays, another team on
the other side of the LOS will be playing their guts out to beat them. Those
are the conditions under which the respective units must jell.

I said 11-5, but the team could go 8-8. It all depends.

I see 16-0 as best case scenerio and 0-16 as worst case scenerio since thats basically the truth. But To be realistic I see us going 8-8 as worst case scenerio and 16-0 as best case scenerio.

The 7 games that I could see us losing are:

@ Bills, @ Colts, vs San Diego, vs Pittsburgh, @ Chiefs, @ Chargers, @ lions.... and then maybe 1 more sneaky game that we could possibly lose. So we could have a chance to lose 8 games but I highly doubt it. And I can see us winning all 16 games because anything is possible.

But Realistcly I see us going 14-2 and losing both games to the Chargers and then getting to the playoffs and losing to the Chargers again at home in the AFC Championship game.

It will be just like the year that the Jaguars went 14-2 and both losses were to the Titans and then they lost to them in the playoffs.

Hopefully I'm wrong.

Heres to being optimistic and going 16-0

16-0 is quite the reach with a new defensive scheme, a basically, what I call rookie QB and some fresh young faces on the lines.

This is going to be a rough year to watch I think with all the high expectations.

I slapped a 10-6 on the team but your 8-8 is not that big of a far fetched reality.


I must be a communist

BroncoBJ
09-02-2007, 04:55 AM
Well 16-0 is best case scenerio for everyone. ;)
Even the lowly Raiders or the Pathetic Browns.
Anything is possible but I dont see us being any worse then 8-8.

Well, old buddy, this is one of those for the "I Hope I'm Wrong" list! We aren't the same team as we were this time last year, and the Faders are on the improve again. I won't really have a feel for the '07 team until they get a few games under their belt. The potential is certainly there, but I didn't see much in the preseason to convince me they're ready to go on both sides of the ball, right out of the starting blocks--the Defense in particular.

Of course I didn't see anything that anyone else didn't, and they just might come out of Buffalo lookin' good. Got my fingers crossed here! :beer:

Im a stick in the mud!

I say 9-7.

And this is only due to the very little lack of faith I have in our LB'ers and DT's at this point.

Well that and I dont think Jay is ready yet.

I hope im wrong.

With the DL still up in the air and s far everyones ability to run on us at will.

Unless there is a some new bodies brought in or the rookies really shine quickly, to mend the holes we are going to struggle this year.

The OLINE with Hamilton a big question mark is also an issue.

We do have Thenry and Marshall looks like the real deal, as does Graham so perhaps if all the stars and moons lined up just right we could indeed do an 11-5 with wins coming instead of losses at:
23-Sep JAX @ DEN if gerrard falters
7-Oct SD @ DEN only because it is a home game.
11-Nov DEN @ KC since it is not a DEC game this is a maybe.

I hope I'm wrong but I see a much stronger team in 2008, with Jay having one more year under his belt throwing to a wicked combo of WR's, TE's and RB's. I think they will have one more year of FA and drafts to get the folks that Bates really wants. They had a decent start on it this year and the rookies will have a years more experience under their jock straps.

Anything above 8-8 is a winning year for me.

I picked 10-6. From what I've seen this preseason, I wouldn't be suprised to see us struggle for some of the early games; we have a LOT of new faces and it sometimes takes time for them to gel and find the right "chemistry". And hopefully we stay away from any of the key players getting injured.

On the other site I said 10-6. But that was before the preseason. Now, I'm affraid it'll be more like 9-7.

I keep wavering between 12-4 and 11-5. Today I think that the Cheifs will win at home so I am voting 11-5. Tomorrow I might once again look at their weakening O-line and be back to 11-5. As much as I want to believe, I don't see us beating the Charger in either match-up. :ahhhhh:

Now having said that, injuries to either the Broncos or the Chargers and it is a whole new ball game.
