    Yep. 7 SB appearances and 5 losing seasons under Bowlen. Amazing. And since 1973 we have 8 AFC Championships and only 7 seasons under .500!

Today, we're able to take everything in stride, realizing what the organization is capable of and knowing that some where, some time, some way, it will find it's way to the Lombardi.

    We're here to stay, bay-beeeeeee!!!!!
    In 1960 I was -15 ....lol

    Great thread 80's! I saw that stat a few day's ago and was like wow I didn't even know that. Then I saw you post it on FB and here. The more I thought about it the more impressed I became. We are so spoiled and should be happy we are fans of such a great team. Thanks for posting this here, CP when I reload.

    That's almost unreal and certainly unheard of.

    Impressive indeed!

    I think the thing you saw was about how we have the highest (or 2nd highest) winning pct. since Bowlen took over as owner.
    Granted, he took over 1 year after we acquired Elway, so you have to factor that in... but the Bowlen/Elway combo has treated this fan base well.

    As someone mentioned earlier, in Elway's last 7 seasons as part of the Broncos organization, they have 3 SB wins, 4 AFC Championships, 6 AFC West titles, 7 playoff appearances, 13 post-season wins (13-4 record).

    I haven't had to suffer through much pain with this team, relatively speaking. We have enjoyed a lot of success, not all of it just on the football field. I feel like this is a team that you can be proud to root for, due to the class of the organization. We have a proud history of winning the right way imo, love my Broncos.

    I know. I became a fan when I was 6 years old, in 1969. My dad had been a fan from the inception. Those were difficult seasons, but we persevered! GO BRONCOS!

Since our first winning season in 1972 we have never had two consecutive losing seasons. Ever. That's 43 years without 2 losing seasons in a row. The next longest streak is Green Bay at 24 years. As this link says, we are truly blessed to be Bronco fans!

    GO BRONCOS!!!!!
