  • The 1997 team lost four reg seasons

    And still won the Super Bowl!

    Maybe there's still a glimmer of hope?

    You're seriously comparing the '18 team to the '97 team?

    You may want to compare rosters and coaches first.

      I saw this movie last year... not much is gonna change in the sequel. The sequences may vary slightly, but the typecast is a rigid mold.

          The ‘97 Broncos had no business losing 4 games, and blowing the division like they did. That said- some of those tough road losses forged the will of a back-to-back Champion...

          As far as the ‘18 Broncos go- best we can say at the moment IMHO is that @BAL and KC aren’t particularly “bad losses” (combined 7-1), and the schedule does seem to lighten up in Nov/Dec. Perhaps 9-7 and a WC appearance can still happen. Nothing about ‘97 comes to mind though...

            The 97 team knew it had a good running game.

            It has become clear as a team offensively we look good running the ball. Multiple players just make the run game look powerful.

            It has become just as clear as a team we struggle offensively when we pass the ball. Even the plays we make it looks like a struggle.

            We really need a coach like Alex Gibbs that will get into the other coaches grill and tell them to run the ball more. Our rushing attempts per game should be around 30-35 and not 22-24 like last couple weeks.

            We are 2nd as a team in rushing yards even tho we are not in the top 10 (we are 11th) in rushing attempts.

            Imagine if we were top 5 or top 3 in rushing attempts...

            This is not the kind of team that will probably go deep in the playoffs but it could enjoy more success then it currently is if the coaches would wake up and smell the coffee.
            Time to build on the win and grow the team from some solid play higher level of play

              Well Keenum isn't Elway....Sure we've got good RB's, but we have no defense.

              This isn't a superbowl ready team. The sooner we accept that, the less frustrated we'll be when we only win 4 regular season games.

                The '97 team had 2 hall of famers in Davis and Elway (maybe more eventually), the 2018 have Vance Joseph and Case "no TDs since week 1" Keenum. There's really no comparison

                    Oh, they have plenty of fire power



                    That was the playcalling during the last 10 minutes.

                            The team has looked progressively better IMO. This was the toughest challenge we've faced and we weren't terrible.

                            How we hold up from an injury standpoint in the dog days of December is what I'm waiting for. Just make the playoffs...The we'll see.
