    We do not get there without the SB 48 loss. Wish we did not have to take that L but it woke up Elway that we needed guys like Sanders, Ward and Ware. We needed to get tougher as a team and that lead to a coaching change. All that change is why we has such a resilient team that took home SB50.
    It was one of the best DEFENSIVE performances in NFL history, the regular season, playoffs, and Super Bowl prove it, the stats prove it , and any Media biased BS will not change it. Elway WILL make changes! You can guarantee that if we have another mediocre year again, there will be changes. He will not put up with it forever.

    Not to mention we had to claw our way to the victory, and those seasons always are loved and appreciated!
    Yea I totally agree that win erased a lot!

    The SB50 season was almost as magical to my heart as our first championship season...I mean REAL close...and that first win was straight magical miracle feeling.

    I just did not think a defense could carry a team like that in today's heavy offense favored rules NFL. Our Broncos changed my mind about mid-season. It was fun to watch our Broncos open the eyes of the nation during SB50 while they dismantled Cam and that offense!

    That was so special the only reason I am bummed the rest of the world still does not give that defense the credit it deserves is because they are cheating themselves out of the knowledge of just how amazing that season was for that defense.

    In the AFC Champ game against the Pats the offense essentially went to the showers at halftime and let some non-NFL starting level players finish the game on offense while the defense held on against Brady and Gronk to win that game.

    I'm with you. SB 50 washed away the pain of SB 48. Sort of like SB 32 soothed the Jacksonville debacle.

    Would you trade 48 for 49?

    I would have loved to have won 48, but 50 revealed something to us: first it showed us that Von Miller is the superstar we know him to be, that was his ultimate emergence into complete NFL stardom. It was the next step for him in terms of growth, maturity, and production. Also the Broncos shut the skeptics up. I remember all week the national media saying that the Panthers would dismantle the Broncos worse than Seattle did in SB48. We got to see Peyton Manning ride off into the sunset in what was a complete Hollywood written season.

    I would not trade for Super Bowl 50 for anything. That was awesome to watch.
    As far as Super Bowl 48 ?
    I have wondered many times if the game
    would have been different if all our injured players had played.
    Von and Harris have always been difference makers.

    Sometimes you need the experience of losing the biggest games to learn how to win them. Without the SB48 disaster, we wouldn't have won SB50.

Seattle definitely came into the SB better prepared; the Broncos looked bad and were DEFINITELY outcoached, but I will always believe that the Broncos had the more talented roster and that game should have been theirs to lose. The Seahawks unquestionably played the better game on SuperBowl Sunday but I don't think they were actually the "better team" that year--that's one of the reasons that SB loss stung so much.

    Is winning both an option? 😋

    To answer the question. Heckin no wayyyy. To send NE home in the AFCCG , and then pound Cam in the SB, was all too sweet. Add in 50 being a anniversary year. Plus PFM last rodeo, SB50 was all to special to trade it for 48.
