Denver Broncos: 2010 – 2011 Regular Season Schedule
For the second season in a row the Broncos faded in the second half and missed the playoffs. With the loss of star receiver Brandon Marshall, the Broncos are now falling closer to the bottom of the AFC West rather than rising to the top.
Below we have the Broncos 2010 -2011 regular season schedule for you to view as we inch closer to the beginning of the NFL season. We also have the fantasy relevant players for Denver, and a breakdown for all NFL teams in schedule strength in win/loss, against the pass, run and points.
Strength of Schedules
Life Without Brandon Marshall
Eddie Royal and Knowshon Moreno need to be the stars in this offense if the Broncos are going to produce points. Quarterback Kyle Orton is still a decent game manager, but he’s not going to carry this offense for a full season and win a bunch on his own.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Broncos show flashes of being a decent offense this up coming season, but I’m not sure they can be good most weeks.
Changes On Defense
Defensive coordinator Mike Nolan came into Denver last season and did a great job turning around the Broncos defense in less than a year. Now, Nolan is the coordinator in Miami, and we will have to find out if the defense can play up to its ’09 standards without him.
Upgrades on the defensive line could cause a change as the team now has a true nose tackle with Jamal Williams. While Williams fits the mold inside his health is of great concern. If he has trouble staying on the field this defense should struggle against the run.
