    NFC West on the Schedule - Good Thing or Bad Thing?

    I think this is a real motivating factor - and a very good thing. You have to play the best to be the best. All season long the Bronco get to confront the conventional wisdom that they aren't good enough for that Division (just better than all the rest). If they make it to the next Super Bowl - they won't be surprised by the level of play next time.

    Best thing that could happen on the schedule . . . We've all the teams we need to see on the reg season schedule - the NFC West and the Colts and Pats

    ( watch, we'll end up playing the Packers in the SB ;)

    Well personally if that's who we potentially face if we make it to SB it's hurts us more than it helps. Both SF, and Seattle have pretty vanilla Offenses. There's going to really be no wrinkles to figure out. Us on the other hand, that's our bread and butter. I think it benefits their attacking styled defenses to see what we got more than it helps us. They pretty much man up and make you beat them. Speed is what kills Seattles D.

    On offense.

    On Defense they will struggle again.

    The Broncos have added a ton of speed (so to speak).
