Broncos 2007 Outlook
The Denver Broncos have high hopes for the 2007 NFL season. Coming off a 13-3 record and another AFC West title in 2005, the Denver Broncos will look to perform a repeat performance in 2007. Jake Plummer will continue to lead the offense, but the Denver Broncos also looked to the future by selecting a quarterback in the 1st round of the 2006 NFL draft, Jay Cutler from Vanderbilt University. Tatum Bell will shoulder the majority of the rushing load, with rookie Mike Bell spelling the other Bell from time to time. The Denver Broncos will look to control the ball with a dominant rushing attack and then open up the offense with vertical passes to veteran Wide Receiver Rod Smith and newly signed free agent Wide Receiver Javon Walker. The Denver Broncos should be able to win the time of possession battle each week, which will enable the defense to be well-rested and aggressive throughout the entire season.
On the defensive end, the Denver Broncos have a solid group of experienced veterans who will present one of the stingiest defenses in the NFL this season. Defensive Ends Kenard Lang and Ebenezer Ekuban will create constant pressure up front which will enable the linebackers and secondary to take more risks than usual each and every week. Linebackers Ian Gold and Al Wilson will patrol the middle of the field and control the opposing teams’ rushing game with superior speed and size. The Denver Broncos have one of the most experienced secondaries in the NFL with Cornerback Champ Bailey, and Safeties Nick Ferguson and John Lynch leading the charge. These 3 will impart their knowledge on 2nd year Cornerback Darrent Williams and any mistakes he may make during the season will likely be overshadowed by the consistent play of the veteran group. If the Denver Broncos defense can dominate teams on a consistent basis as expected, look for the Denver Broncos to win the AFC West again and make a great run at Super Bowl XLI this season.
