Denver, CO. Three weeks of the 2012 regular season are now in the books, and the Denver Broncos are 1-2. The fact that Denver has lost two in a row may not be a huge surprise to some fans, as they have lost two games in six days to a couple of outstanding teams who are both still unbeaten. The Broncos have dug themselves a hole in each loss, only to make furious comebacks which fell just short. They ended up losing by six points in each game vs Atlanta and vs Houston, as the Broncos optimists would point out that this Denver team was resilient and will only get better as the year goes on. They will also point out that this team is still learning how to play with one another and it’s a great sign that they have been in these games with just a few minutes to go in each one. Even at 1-2, everyone knew the early season part of the schedule would be extremely tough, so one win in their first three games is not the end of the world. However, although there have been some encouraging ...

  • Two reasons on how Denver Broncos can get better: (1) Catch the football when it is passed to you. (2) Continue to block until play is over.
  • These guys get so much money and so many perks for playing a game they've all been playing or preparing for almost every day of their lives since they were young boys...right? So, you would think they would all be masters of this game by now. But for reasons unknown, they continue to get paid huge sums of money to just show up and play sorta kinda OK - but nothing special...they don't seem to play like their careers depended on winning. The mystery is - Why? Why do some teams in some towns consistantly play the game with so much youthful vigor and passion, unshakeable strength and a powerful desire to win - the way football should be played? They do everything they can and need to do to win the game on at least a pretty fairly consistant basis. Meanwhile, other teams in some towns like Denver and the energy and the magic is missing...they just seem to show up and kinda play alright, spend so much time making up excuses, whining about injuries, like these stupid 7 reasons listed here. The truth is, they just don't even seem to have whatever it takes to just do the basics well on a consistant basis like Wenny754 said so brilliantly (1) catch the football when it is passed to you and (2) continue to block until the play is over...why is this too hard for some teams to do well? The Peyton Manning thing...are you serious? Who among you did not see this coming down the road...at his age and after all his injuries? He is not going to be able to pull off miracles for the Broncos all by himself -what were you expecting? If you wanted youthful vigor and strength, unshakeable passion and desire to do whatever it takes to win - if you wantedsomeone to bring the magic and the joy and the miracles to start happening for the Denver Broncos (because that is what it seems to take) then you should not have sent Tim Tebow packing.
