Sports Illustrated Previews the Broncos

Pretty good analysis of the team, however brief it may be. They picked Jake Roh as our team's x-factor, and I'd love to see him continue to play solidly as a tight end who can catch in traffic across the middle, and then draw enough defenders that nobody sees SWR burning a hot-white streak up the sideline.

I still can't help but think P5 bias comes into rankings though, when Arizona is ranked above us. But hey, it's all preseason talk anyway; history is made on the field, not in sports writers' online ramblings! In that case, let me just predict an undefeated season, an unprecedented berth into the playoffs as the #4 seed, and a national championship trophy for the Broncos.

Andy Staples discusses this in his latest article, but I can't help but think different sports networks buying up college football TV rights could also mean more exposure for us (even though we're pretty well covered right now). I hate to say it,  but I can't afford the satellite packages with all the extra sports networks on them, so thank goodness there's always links in the game threads!
