If you are a glass half full sort of fan, you could point out how this Broncos team has been very resilient in each of their losses, fighting back in the second half of each contest only to come up a bit short against a high quality opponent. You could also focus on how Peyton Manning continues to look better and better, and the rust from missing all of 2011 is still being chipped off more and more as each week passes.

Manning cleared all the rust away and now he looks as if he can finally...
