  • For the first time in my 41 years I'm wondering if I should remain a fan.

    Getting harder and harder to remain a fan. Not just of the Broncos but the NFL as a whole. The games just are not enjoyable to watch right now.

    Denver needs to let Elway go. The ownership situation needs repaired. Elway has to much power, someone needs to be able to check him and Ellis.

    It pains me to says this but I'm done until things change. I am to old to let something I can't control stress me out like this.

      I'm getting there as well. It's hard to see any hope for this franchise until we see real change, like ownership, Elway leaving, and new blood in the franchise. Right now things are a mess and about to get worse.

      • Yep things have changed, glad I was around for the good old days, still sticking around and suffering with everybody else though lol.
        It is not fun being on this sinking ship, I hear what you are saying for sure.

          It’s become very obvious Elway is incapable of running football operations. If not for Irsay releasing Manning we’re probably not talking about Elway. He was in the right place at the right time - I give him all the credit for the moves that led to winning SB50.

          Elway is the common denominator of the Broncos becoming an irrelevant franchise. Ellis played a role, to what extent isn’t clear. In either case the GM who gets the credit for winning must take the blame for losing. Failure to draft/develop a quarterback, poor drafts, coaching decisions and bad free agent contracts all played a role.

          Elway has good intentions and I’m sure he’s as frustrated as anyone, if not more. Players like Sanders didn’t want to be in Denver any longer. For me, that speaks volumes to what’s going on. Elway should do the right thing and step down. Unfortunately he doesn’t have the self-awareness to recognize he’s lost his way.

          • I'm done with the NFL this year. Actually, after coming out of the gates at 0-4, that pretty much ended it for me. This team will continue to flounder until we get a legit GM and the ownership issue is settled.

            • I don’t even know how to explain what is going on with my team anymore.

              Can any of you explain what the heck is happening with this team? I have no idea how define this team. Can you?

              • Draft misses aside, Elway's fatal error was hiring Vance Joseph instead of Kyle Shanahan. Fangio seems like a good guy, and could probably be a good HC in the right circumstances, but he is not the right leader for this team. I'm not a big fire the coach guy, but I really hope they move on after the season and bring back Mike Shanahan for a couple seasons to get them out of the ditch and then hand it off to someone else. It's a mess right now.

                • What a depressing state we’re in. We’re actually arguing amongst ourselves about what is worse: QBs? Oline? Play calling? Coaching?

                  The answer is none of it is up to snuff. It all boils down to the FO, period.

                    The product we are watching is the (primary) result of drafting poorly over the last several years. Early round misses, to be specific. Failure to evaluate talent properly, followed by floundering coaching staffs. (Although, sometimes it's hard to tell whether the issue is coaching or the lack of talent) Basically, it's like the upper management of this organization has just been throwing crap at the wall and seeing what will stick. Putting bandaids (free agents) on things that need to be broken down and rebuilt from the bottom up.

                    All of this, and you have this giant mess of a casserole that we are seeing on the field.

                    • Why didn’t we hire Kyle Shanahan? Why did we fire Wade Phillips? Why did we let go of Gary Kubiak?

                      So our coaching staff could be Kyle Shanahan as HC, Wade Phillips as DC and Gary Kubiak as OC yet we let that team go? Why?????

                      Kind of makes me sick to be honest. Who knows the game better than these guys than them? Nobody. Football royalty.

                      We certainly wouldn’t be 2-7. That’s for damn sure.

                          Actually, it was allegedly Joe Ellis who put the kibosh on Elway looking Kyle Shanahan's way.

                            Ah, yes. I do recall hearing that.

                              Makes me sad and angry at that. That’s why our team is now in the bottom of the barrel.
