Three And Oh

Published by at 10:02 pm under Sports

I haven’t been able to say that since 2003. The Denver Broncos are 3 – 0. So far, it’s been pretty exciting following them too. Denver also has a really good shot to go 4 – 0 when they go up against a struggling Chiefs team. Yeah, yeah. I know they got lucky last week, but just like in a lot of things, it takes some luck for things to go your way to make a good run.

To make it even better, there hasn’t been any shortage of action either. Denver has scored a league best 114 points so far this year showing the type of offense that hasn’t been seen in Denver since their Super Bowl years of last decade.

I’ve seen it stated a few times that 3 – 0 teams finish in the playoffs better than 75% of the time. That’s good for Shanahan who promised this summer that the Broncos would make the playoffs. Which is also good for me as it’s been 2 years since I’ve cared about the post season. I’m still excited about the potential of this season… but it’s a long season.

Unfortunately their success has not rubbed off on me. I’m in 2 fantasy football leagues this year. In both my family keeper league and some small league of coworkers, I am 0 – 3. The small league is really too small to take too seriously so I’m not to torn up about that one. With only 6 people and every one having good players, some people are just gonna get lucky and others aren’t.

What has really bothered me are my results in the family league. 3 losses, all 3 I’ve lost against the highest scorer of the week. It’s like I’m my own cooler. Combine that with me losing my keeper QB (Brady) and WR (Colston) to injuries, it hasn’t been a good year. Even despite that, I’ve done alright. In week 2, I was the second highest scorer for the week, but that does you little good when facing the top scorer. Sigh

My fantasy football woes aside, I am still far more stoked about Denver’s success. I would be more than happy to lose the pool for the success of the Broncos. It would be worth the entry fee for me. I wouldn’t mind it if I didn’t have to though…

    [...] Games 1-4: Denver came out of the gate with a 3-1 record only slipping against the division rival Chiefs. The offense looked hot and they got a few breaks. I definitely was high on them at this point. [...]
