Optimism abounds for 2018

All things considered, the Broncos are reasonably optimistic for the 2018 season.

The AFC West appears to be wide open for the 2019 season after the Kansas City Chiefs traded Alex Smith.

Though the Los Angeles Chargers are the favorite according to experts in the NFL community, but the Broncos’ defense is still the class of the division with Von Miller leading the way, and that unit seemed to get significantly better on the front seven this offseason, despite taking a hit with the loss of Aqib Talib.

The biggest difference-maker this offseason is Denver’s move to get Case Keenum. If Keenum plays as well in 2018 as he did in 2017, the Broncos are going to be very hard to beat.

It seems like the Broncos have all the pieces and the makings of a Super Bowl caliber team, depending on who you ask. With a fourth-place schedule, it’s entirely possible the Broncos will win the AFC West or at least get a wild-card spot.

If they can make it to the postseason, anything can happen.
