Slagging the Broncos schedule isn't reasonable. They had the 1st place schedule, despite being 8-8 last year, and the AFC North and NFC South divisions on tap. It looked to be one of the hardest schedules heading into the season. Oh, and it was front-loaded because the NFL TV folks were afraid Manning's neck wouldn't hold up.
