Tony Gonzalez says Broncos will go undefeated
- Updated: August 19, 2014
The last time there was an undefeated team in the NFL was Don Shula’s 1972 Miami Dolphins and while the 2007 Patriots came close, they ended up falling short of undefeated in a full season. Current CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Gonzalez thinks that the Denver Broncos will be the next NFL’s undefeated team, in both the regular season and playoffs.
The former All-Pro tight end gave plenty of reason to Newsday as to why he feels Denver will be the firs team since 1972 to go undefeated.
“Right now, Denver has a team built just like the New England Patriots back when they went undefeated in the 2007 regular season.
“In looking at Denver in the preseason and Peyton Manning’s command of that offense, he’ll pick up right where he left off last year. And defensively, they went out like good organizations do and addressed their weaknesses.”
Gonzalez also went on to say he believes there would be a Super Bowl rematch, with Denver winning it this season.
“I think it’s going to be a Denver-Seattle rematch in the Super Bowl, and I would go with Denver this time. Giving Peyton two shots at it, to go against the same team, I’ll take Peyton. He didn’t have his All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady against them last year [in Seattle’s 43-8 romp] and they didn’t have their right corner Chris Harris.”
As it will be with every team, Gonzalez said that health will be the most important factor for Denver.
“If they can stay healthy, how do you beat this team?” Gonzalez said. “They’re balanced on both sides of the ball. They can run, they can pass, they can stop the run and they can stop the pass now on a consistent basis. It’s going to be very, very tough to beat them.
Gonzalez has some high expectations for the Denver Broncos in 2014 and with no pun intended, they’ll need to be perfect on the field and in the health department, if they plan on having a perfect record in the 2014 season.
