Fact. He's a top pass-blocking LT and he'll the know the importance of his job with who's behind him.
Orlando Frankin becomes a top-tier RT.
Fiction. Not sure what you're definition of "top-tier" is...but Franklin will continue to struggle against the better edge rushers...he'll improve though..not so much to make him one of the games elite RT's though.
Philip Blake takes Beadles LG starting spot. (I know I said it before but it kind of got lost and nobody answered anyway)
Fiction, i think beadles is going to prove himself this year as a good to great interior lineman.
Thomas has 8+ TD receptions
Broncos fan since 1989
Fact. Thomas will be the go-to-guy in the red-zone, and there will be times where he will just outrun the coverage to the endzone, i.e. Steeler playoff game. I'm thinking Thomas eclipses double digits for TDs this year.
Fact or fiction: The Broncos' pass defense is ranked higher than 10th this season.
Fiction. We have a lot of new additions and young faces in our secondary. This is just a presumption on my part, but w/ Manning, I think we'll be winning 10+ games and scoring a lot to do so. That means a lot more possessions and more passing from the opposing team. I think we'll be more in the 15-20 range if your judging mostly by yards and TDs allowed.
Fact or fiction - Broncos finish 4-2 or better against the division.
Everyone but the chiefs seemed to slide backwards in my opinion. I see one loss to the chargers and another to the cheifs.
Fact or fiction - Ben Garland makes the team.
Makes the 53 man roster team? Or does practice squad count? I'll say fiction and say practice squad since I think you're referring to the 53 man roster team. Vick, Bannan, and Warren are all here for 1 year guaranteed...you have to believe at least 1 is going to leave. Need some insurance, he's a nice player to develop.
FA/Fic- Mays misses 15 tackles (missed 13 last year for the season)
I think he improves on his numbers from last year with some solid coaching from the former LB DelRio.
Fa/Fic: Nate Irving makes at least 3 starts at LB this year.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood..... Nobody!"
fiction woodyard will take over for dj at LB
fact/fiction hillman 40 receptions
Sports fans check out my website www.teamtakeum.com NFL ATS picks posted here
Fiction, he won't be a featured back, plus Denver's got too many other weapons in the passing game.
Dumervil is guilty of flashing a gun in his waistband at a civilian in Miami.
Fiction. Too many contradicting reports for there to be a strong enough case against him however, he is suspended by Goodell.
Wesley Woodyard keeps his place after D.J. comes back from suspension.

Fact. Woodyard is gonna explode and make his name known.
Peyton Manning tosses 27+ TD's this season.
Thats less than 2 per game average, I'd have to say he'll clear that fairly easily, im guess he'll be in the 35-40 mark. And to comment on the Decker one yesterday, I believe Decker will lead the team in receptions, and have 90+, but Thomas will have more yards.
Q: 5 or more players represent the Broncos in the Pro Bowl this year
Fact. Champ Bailey, Von Miller, Elvis Dumervil, Demaryius Thomas, Peyton Manning, Ryan Clady, Jacob Tamme are the guys I think will make the pro-bowl as either starters or reserves.
We get a first round bye in the playoffs.
