Broncos vs. Colts: Five Bold (Stupid) Predictions for Week 1 Matchup

I hate making predictions, so when I do, I prefer to be as much of a homer as possible. I’m not trying to justify a lofty, bold (stupid), whatever you want to call it prediction, I’m just wondering how many of you had Peyton Manning throwing 55 touchdown passes last year…?

How many of you had him throwing 7 in the first game?

How many of you had Knowshon rushing for 1,000 yards and scoring 10 TDs?

I don’t want to hear about homeristic (just made that word up) predictions, especially around here. I want to see the most homeristic fans we can get, because that’s what being a fan is all about. Life is hard and real enough, you don’t have to be realistic when it comes to your favorite football team, especially when they are as stupid good as the Denver Broncos are right now.

Here are my five bold (stupid) predictions for the Broncos’ opening game against the Colts that you may or may not agree with entirely.
