    Over the past dozen seasons of Denver Broncos franchise history, there have pretty much been two constants: Coach Mike Shanahan, and a running offense that never dropped out of the top 12 in the league's statistical rankings. In fact, not once during Shanahan's tenure in the Rocky Mountains has the Denver rushing game ever ranked statistically below the club's passing attack.

    Makes sense to play to your strengths

    and that strength is getting away with chop blocks

    Their scheme also makes a QB's life miserable. The RBs benefit from it greatly, but their undersized linemen are outmuscled by the better DEs and DTs consistently, and leads to a lot of jailbreaks. That also plays into the "rushing game never ranked statistically below the club's passing attack" statistic.

    the broncos are not the only team that do chop blocks they just execute it well. there offensive line isn't as small as it was in years past. i just can't wait for Cutler to throw long td passes on the raiders, chiefs, and chargers.:icon_biggrin:

    :icon_acool: showoff i have to agree with you about broncos. cutler is like elway in alot of ways big arm, can scramble if needed and can sit tight in the pocket .look at elway danreeves was one of the reasons for so many years he didnt do so well. as a very long time broncos fan i can honestly say no one will succeed in denver as the qb as long as the fans dont let elway go and move on to the qb of the future. also we went out made some great picups and trades, dre bly, daniel graham, travis henry, adams and kennedy not to mention a host of others. i see us as bieng one of the best this year at going out and filling holes that we needed to feel. so i say cheers to the broncos and " Live and Die Orange and Blue "

    and i can't wait to see cutler bomb it back there and for
    Nnamdi Asomugha to pick them off, and take them back.

    No, Denver running the ball??? Maybe if it said.... "Shanahan testing new Alzheimer's drug says team will set new NFL record passing mark"... it would have been more interesting.

    I doubt it, big time :)
    Ok, it may happen once or twice, heck, the guy is young, but give him a couple of years and he will lose so many Super Bowls! (Ok, we don't want him to be THAT similar to Elway :lol: )
    My point is, Cutler has the mobility to avoid the excess of pass rush delivered by the small O-line. The Griese days are over, you won't see SO many passes picked (and players injured).

    No offense, but the picks I'm anticipating are coming from the best darn secondary in the NFL. Welcome to The Champ and Bly Show. :icon_cheesygrin:

    As for the ground game... Yeah, it's not going to be a surprise -- Denver will run the ball... and well.

    I don't think it's a matter of whether the Broncos will be devoted to the run or not, I think the question is: Will Travis Henry have more than 1500 yards this season?

    14-2 is a tad too ambitious, yes, but hey, we did get 13-3 back at '05.

    I, as much of a homer as I can be, have never been comfortable predicting things like that (Mexico's soccer team has taught me that the hard way), although I do HOPE for a 12-4, maybe second seed...
