The Denver Broncos have gone from 4-12 to 13-3 in a mere two seasons and have John Elway to thank. His approach to free agency simply works, and it's only a matter of time until he leads the Broncos back to another Super Bowl.
"Perhaps it’s because, in his heart, he will always be a Colt. He was drafted by the Colts. He played in Indy forever. The stadium there is even referred to as “the house that Peyton built”. All Manning has built in Denver is expectations, expectations that he failed to live up to in the biggest game we’ve hosted here since the 1990’s"
The Denver Broncos have squirreled away their second AFC West Championship in a row with four games yet to play in the in the 2012 regular season. They're winning almost predictably. It's everything we can ask for, so why are we bored?
Look out, AFC.
The Broncos are not screwing around.
Peyton Manning is clearly locked in - and what looked even a week ago to be a Broncos team that would be happy with a Wild Card spot is now a juggernaut.
At 4-3 the Broncos have a lock on thier division. And, with one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL, they have a shot at the whole enchilada.
Yeah, I am talking Super Bowl.
Is there anyone in the AFC that can stop Denver if they have a real defense - a secondary - guys that can shut down Drew Brees !
Holy crap! The Broncos are for real.
I want another crack at the Pats. Well, that's coming. Meanwhile, bring on the Bengals. And consider them mince meat.
The worst of their schedule is behind them. The Broncos are poised to go on a tear now and I can't wait!
Peyton Manning was far and away the best answer for this team and John Elway deserves a ton of credit for seeing that and stopping at nothing to make it happen.
His best is yet to come.
A new book is being written to be added to the series retelling the history of the Denver Broncos. Peyton Manning scripted an unforgettable chapter last night.
Broncos' Vice President of Football Operations, Mr. John Elway is an active member of the Republican Party. It should come as no surprise that he's supporting the Republican candidate for President.
But that's no reason not to flip the fuck out on social media.
Let's be honest with ourselves, Broncos fans. Tonight's pre-season game between the Broncos and the Seattle Pete Carrolls did not go very well. Worse, Peyton Manning looked bad. He threw some really wobbly passes. One went for a sad interception on a pass seemingly intended for nobody. He looked less like a 14 million dollar man than Seattle's rookie did.
There is certainly cause for concern - and justification for asking questions. We didn't pay for a reclaimation project.
Nobody wants to over-react to what we just saw, but the reality is that the Denver Broncos are built around Peyton Manning. And their hopes for the immediate future are direclty tied to him.
It's not at all unreasonable to be disappointed and worried after a night like this. Our collective parade was rained on, even though it was a beautiful night at Mile High.
everybody knows that the Broncos schedule is brutal. It's the worst in recent memory for Denver, and among the toughest in the NFL. Expectations are high and the Broncos will have to play well to meet them.
It all starts with Manning. That's why we all tracked his flight information. John Elway said it himself. There is no plan B. So we had better hope there is a plan A. Because it's playoffs or bust for this team. And, by next year we had better win it all. Otherwise, we paid much.
After all the excitement that lead up to his signing with the Denver Broncos, odd feelings and doubts about Peyton Manning are creeping in. Here's an article that's bound to go over like a lead balloon.
We'll be telling our grand-children about this season, you guys. This is beyond odd, beyond curious. It's more than a miracle. It's a season of a lifetime.
Justin Wheeler at Bleacher Report, home of the pop-up, popped up some photos of Nike's mock-ups of proposed NFL unis for 2012, when they take over as the official supplier to the league. This potential Broncos get-up, complete with the return of the "D", is the coolest one of them all.
We can only home that this design is final. Yes, the Broncos won Superbowls with the new "horse design" but, with Elway at the helm and a need for the organization to reconnect with it's past, the time is right to make the switch back. Do it, Denver! Bring back the "D".
