The Broncos enter the 2013 season as the favorite of many to win the Super Bowl. Peyton Manning, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker were a lethal combination in the passing game last season and the addition of Wes Welker could make their ariel assault almost unstoppable this season. Losing Elvis Dumervil will hurt their defense, but adding Louis Vasquez could be key to keeping Manning upright to connect with his plethora of targets. The Broncos have a Super Bowl offense, but it is up to Von Miller and company to ensure that the Broncos defense plays well enough for the Broncos to end their season at Met Life Stadium in The Super Bowl.
After an unexpected 6-0 start last year, the Broncos came back down to earth, as they finished with a mediocre 9-7 record. This year presents a quarterback conundrum. Kyle Orton had the starting job last year. This year, the Broncos picked up Brady Quinn from the Browns and drafted Tim Tebow in the first round. Now there is somewhat of a logjam at the position. No one really knows who will start at the beginning of the season, although Orton is expected to start again.
LenDale White was picked up from the Titans to bolster their running back core that includes Justin Fargas, Correll Buckhalter, and Knowshon Moreno.
Elvis Dumervil is out for the season after leading the league in sacks last year with 17. That will be a huge blow. The old vets in Champ Bailey and Brian Dawkins will highlight their secondary once again, but one has to wonder how many prime years they have left in them.
The Broncos will finish second in the division thanks to the directionless Chiefs and Raiders, but not much more. They will finish a dissapointing 6-10 in my opinion.

It took a year but the Broncos’ controversial decision to allow Jason Elam to leave for free agency and replace him with Matt Prater has been vindicated.
Today, the same day Elam was released for the first time in his 17-year career, Prater was named the AFC special teams player of the week.
Where have you gone, Mike Shanahan?
Elam had been the Broncos’ clutch kicker for 15 seasons when he and Shanahan, then the team’s coach and personnel boss, couldn’t agree on terms for a new contract. Elam wound up signing a more lucrative, four-year, $9 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons.
