2014 Donald Brown > 2014 Demarcus Ware, Emmanuel Sanders, Derek Wolfe, Keving Vickserson, or Rahim Moore.

Also, MM > John Fox.

Not to mention the players that the Donks LOST.

And his takes that we "snuck" into the playoffs; and that we took the "backdoor" into the playoffs, should be enough to yank his "journalist" card. Does he even know what those terms mean?

We'll see about DB but he's a back up and that's not gonna turn heads.

We did sneak into the playoffs through the back door. We needed two teams to collapse and barely and luckily got by a KC team resting its starters.

Winning your last four games is the exact opposite of coming into the playoffs through the back door.

Especially when one of said wins was over the writer's beloved Broncos-- and in their house.

Not when you need other teams to collapse down the stretch. We were lucky to get in. Just like 2008.

We were fortunate that the other teams did what we needed. No doubt. But we did our part.

UConn lost so many games that they came into the NCAA tournament as a 7 seed. But they got it together in the end, and went on a run.

Let's wager on how many writers state that they got in through the backdoor.

I'll start. Zero.

Agree because they didn't back in to the tournament. A 7 seed puts them in the top half of teams in the tournament. They didn't need help to get in

Okay, I surrender.

A 7-9 team has to get lucky to get into the playoffs. Therefore, we got in through the backdoor.

Agreed, but we were 9-7.

Denver deserves the glory of the division. They were the best team in the AFC last season. It's going to be much more difficult for the Bolts to get in the playoffs this coming season than last. Just look at the 2014 schedule. A heck of a lot tougher than last year's. TT is going to have to earn his money this draft if the expectations are the playoffs.

Huh. No kidding? Then I retract my statement. We did not get into the playoffs through the back door.
