Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL http://www.broncoscheapauthenticstor...o-jersey-cheap , powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team.Broncos fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.The Denver Broncos (3-4) face a tough road match against the surging Kansas City Chiefs (6-1), which fans expect the Broncos to lose by at least a touchdown in our latest FanPulse survey. To add to the worry, just 21% of fans still think the Broncos can make the playoffs in 2018. Realistically, Denver would need to win this game on the road to have a chance to springboard through a seemingly weaker schedule down the stretch to finish with 10-wins and a playoff opportunity. At 3-4, that seems like a bit of a longshot. However, fan confidence has slowly rebounded from rock bottom a few weeks ago with a close 23-20 loss to a strong Los Angeles Rams team and a 45-10 shellacking of the Arizona Cardinals boosting hope in Broncos Country. My takeaways from all of this is that fans are not at all confident in this team, but its not as bad as it was. Most of us expect a loss, but a win would likely change everything for this team and for us fans in these weekly surveys.Broncos rookies defying the odds so far Good morning, Broncos Country! All 32 organizations are hopeful they nail their NFL Drafts. That is typically measured by a team “hitting” on its upper-round selections who contribute right away as a starter or significant backup. To earn that rare distinction teams must also get production or steals in the later rounds. To put this in simpler terms: What the New Orleans Saints did in their draft last year.In the immediate follow up to this year’s draft, some felt John Elway and the Denver Broncos had one of the best. Then those picks took the field and the excitement was sparked. But minicamp is way different than training camp. Then they continued to shine in training camp. But training camp is way different than the preseason. Then they continued to shine in the preseason. But the first two preseason games are way different than the third preseason game. Then they shined in third the preseason game. At this point all that’s left to do is shine in the regular season. Until they do for the Broncos, some hint of skepticism should remain. But since the names Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton, Royce Freeman, Josey Jewell, Phillip Lindsay and Bradley Chubb popped up, they’ve remained consistent. There’s no reason to think that will stop now.For a short tangent, after Denver’s win against the Washington Redskins, some fans where complaining about Chubb. Really? As Zac Stevens with BSN said on Twitter, Chubb’s final stat line was incredibly encouraging for roughly one half of work: Four tackles, .5 sack and two quarterback hits. That’s eight tackles Youth Royce Freeman Jersey , one sack and four QB hits over an entire game. Is Chubb perfect? Hell no. He still struggles with containment on the edge and still has “rookie moments.” But when you add Chubb’s numbers to the rest of the defense on Friday night, you get 12 QB hits from eight different players that resulted in three sacks. Rest assured the Broncos will take that production from the Orange Rush and not think twice about it. If what we’ve seen from Chubb, Von Miller and the others over the course of training camp and preseason doesn’t give you all the feels for what they could do, I don’t know what to tell you. It’s also the latest reminder that Denver fans need to get and rock this awesome Orange Rush shirt.But I digress, and back on track.The crop of rookies mentioned earlier have not only risen to the occasion, they have done so in a consistent fashion. To a lesser extent, you could even include Isaac Yiadom, Keishawn Bierria and David Williams, but they are not on the same level as the others ... yet. What started out as hope that the Broncos nailed this draft has turned into, “how the hell did Elway hit on just about every pick?” To put this in simpler terms: It seems Denver pulled a Saints.*Cue the “And Ian just jinxed it ... “Horse Tracks Next-Day Notebook: Andy Janovich gathers accolades for game-breaking blocksReviewing Friday’s win over Washington with closer looks at performances by Andy Janovich, Brandon McManus and the run defense.Emmanuel Sanders, Courtland Sutton display big-play acumen in win over RedskinsSanders and Sutton combined for 106 yards on seven first-half catches.How one throw proved that with Case Keenum at the helm, Broncos are 'never out of it'The third-and-15 conversion may not mean much now, but it very well could later this season.Broncos-Redskins observationsDenver's first-team offense got roughly a game's worth of work over the last three weeks, and its overall production and efficiency were optimal.Keenum sharp, Broncos impressive in defeating Washington 29-17 | 9news.comThe new Broncos' front-line units that just had their final tune-up for the 2018 season appear determined to put last season behind them.Emmanuel Sanders appears unguardable from the slot | 9news.com“Man, I’m loving the slot,’’ he said in the FedEx Field visiting locker room Friday night after he helped the Broncos defeat Washington, 29-17.Broncos offense opens eyes under Case Keenum with strong first half - Denver7 TheDenverChannel.comThe Broncos offense opened eyes with production and creativity in strong first half.AFC West TracksUnanswered depth chart questions - Bolts From The BlueAs we inch closer to the regular season, there are some questions about the depth chart that remain unanswered.
