    So unless you plan on having Jesus Christ on your sideline the rest of the year or have the Browns on the schedule for the next 14 games...wait until you beat a real team before you make ANY statements about how good your team is.
    I could not agree with this post more.

      Who is touting the Broncos as being great?

        Imagine how much higher Oakland would be if JaMarcus could actually complete some passes before the 4th quarter

          Yeah definitely. Their D is really good and Mark Sanchez is looking real good.

            I have seen Broncos fans putting them in the top 16 teams in the league, which is too high based on what we have seen from them

I think pleasantly surprised is about the gist of it. Most of the Broncos fans in here (aside from Jimmy) thought the Broncos would be solid this year. Guess what, so far the Broncos have looked solid.

              I haven't seen anyone saying they are great, but suggesting that they are even good, "solid", or should be higher on the rankings (as Job alludes to) at this point is too much.

              Like I said in the original post, wait until they beat a real team before making that assessment.

                I wouldnt put them in the top 16 just yet. However, based on their defensive play over 2 weeks you can make an argument they should be. The key here though is that most people believe the defense is bad and that these two games are completely due to the Browns and Bengals being incompetent. This may be right, or the defense make actually be pretty decent. Too hard to tell just yet - peoples opinions on a lot of things have ruled all discussion on the Broncos during the preseason, and after 2 games it is still at the opinion stage as there is just not enough hard facts to go on.

                  No, its an all-inclusive ranking that takes into account expectations coming into the season as well as the performance of the team in the first two weeks.
                  You misinterpreted what I said. It's about the overall performance, but they don't use Week 1's power rankings to dictate, "Oh, this team should move down 2 spots, this team up 2 spots." They start with a clean slate.

                        Skins should be 5 spots lower.

                          Bengals should be higher. We beat green bay yet we're 12 spots lower? I'm not saying we should even be higher than them, just not that far away. I personally feel we should be closer to where the dolphins are now at 19.

                            I just posted this in Shiver's thread. I think all the huge offense that we are not used to seeing from the Ravens has made people overlook that this isn't a typical Ravens defense. At least not right now it is.

                              I don't think number 5 is the appropriate spot for the Vikings. I think they should be 7 - 10 spots lower. Here is my reasoning:

                              1. The Vikings played two teams that are 0-2. They did pretty well against them, but nothing that hasn't ever happened before.

                              2. They couldn't stop the run in those two games. The Lions got above 100 yards rushing.

                              3. The Vikings didn't get moving until the second half. I don't know if it's just because the Lions were excited? Or if it was just the way they played. But something has to be done about the offense and defense showing up later in the game.

                              4. I can see that Favre is managing the game, which is what he came here to do, but he can't be successful if he is not being protected. If Favre gets hurt, who will manage the game? I guess that is usually expected when there are two new starters.

                              Number 5 is steep, I would say a lot lower.

                                I would hope the Bengals could be closer to middle of the pack right now, but it is espn so I put no stock into it. We should be 2-0 but the big man upstairs decided to shun us for our years of stupidity after finally having a good offseason. We played hard at GB and won. And how about the defense? huh? yeaaahhh. Once Carson gets his timing down, I think we could really start to make some teams sweat.
