As long as Manning is in Denver, and we have Norv, it's their division to loose.
Another radical idea is to start rebuilding after this year. Manning has a good 2-3 years left. Assuming that Denver wins the division for the next couple of years, this is the time to start rebuilding. Look at the other 2 teams in the division. KC is probably rebuilding as well. Let's hope that Oakland stays incompetent and tries to compete the next couple years with Palmer. It's basically between us and KC around 2014 and beyond. We can always flip Rivers and Gates for some picks. If you look at the rest of our roster, Weddle is the only one that is in his prime. Jammer, Spikes, Phillips, Hardwick have all seen better days. We can rebuild around the young nucleus of Ingram, Butler, Liuget, Green, Brown, maybe Mathews plus whatever picks we get. Otherwise we can always hope to stay in no mans land with Rivers and co.
