Again, I like Denver. I think they are a very good team. I do not think they are as good as the Eagles, however.
Comparing the two:
Record: Slight edge to the Eagles. The Broncos have played one more game than the Eagles, however, they have also lost a game. If this were the NHL, they'd be tied on points. In the NFL, however, you have to give a slight nod to the Eagles.
Strength of schedule: See above. Strong edge to the Eagles. Since this appears to be your major point about why the Eagles are overrated (which may possibly be true), I am curious why you do not apply the same reasoning to the Broncos. Their schedule up until this point has been, if anything, much weaker than the Eagles'.
Dominance: You said above that the Broncos are a ball-control team and not a "shoot-out" team. I think that's a valid point, and I agree that margin of victory is not a perfect measure of a team's quality. However, it is worth pointing out that Denver has scored 130 points to the Eagles 137, and Denver's devense has given up 77 points to the Eagles' 63 (note that there is one more game in the Broncos record.) That's an average victory of 27.4 to 10.6 for the Eagles; 21.6 to 12.8 for the Broncos. Both sides of the ball favor the Eagles.
Common Opponents:Just Carolina thus far. Yes, Jenkins was out. However, I think the presence of Stephen Davis (he was out for the Denver game) more than makes up for that.
Broncos needed to come back in the fourth quarter to beat Carolina. That they did so is certainly a credit to the quality of their team. However, the Eagles routed that same Carolina team on a day when one of their top offensive weapons was largely shut down.
It may turn out that the Broncos are the best team in the league. Having watched Plummer throughout his carrer with the Cardinals (when they were in the NFC East), I would not bet on it. However, all available evidence thus far in the season points to the Eagles being a better team.
Note: As I stated above, I think the Broncos are an extremely good team. I think they have a decent shot to go deep into the playoffs. The road through the AFC playoffs is going to be tougher than the NFC, so I think the Eagles have a better shot to make it to the SuperBowl. If that happens, it does not prove that the Eagles are a better team, because of the current quality of NFC/AFC teams.
However, in this thread. I am attempting to respond to the multiple posts 303 has made which praise the Broncos, while repeatedly stating that the Eagles are overrated. IMO, the two are very comparable over the course of the season thus far, with the Eagles coming out ahead in that comparison.
