The Broncos Want Another Shot At The Super Bowl

The Denver Broncos, who were humiliated in the Super Bowl after surviving a shocking last minute defeat in the previous year’s playoffs at the hands of the eventual Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens, would seem to be the victims of karma over their first-play-in-overtime improbable victory over the Steelers in the previous season, a season that had them making the playoffs against all logic, steered by an unlikely hero in the form of Tim Tebow.

After that victory in the AFC Wild Card round, things started to deteriorate as the Broncos were handily beaten in the next round by the New England Patriots.

Those with a sense of history will recall that the Broncos have been on the receiving end of some of the worst smack downs in NFL Super Bowl history, once at the hands of the Washington Redskins quarterbacked by Doug Williams and another by the Joe Montano led San Francisco Forty-Niners.

Fear not, Bronco Maniacs. The recently concluded free agency period found Denver All Time Great and Hero, former quarterback John Elway, now at the helm of the team in an executive role where he is in charge of player acquisition, making some serious moves to address the defensive deficiencies that several times during the season required the Broncos to put up 50 points on offense in order to beat mediocre teams.

The Broncos acquired the services of cornerback Aqib Talib, even though they lost the services of a great cover cornerback in Dominique Rogers-Cromartie. This was strictly a financial consideration. They also picked up a valuable pass rusher with DeMarcus Ware and added more depth to the secondary with strong safety T.J. Ward.

In today’s pass-oriented NFL, it is thought that Ware might supply some assistance to Vaughn Miller, who floundered somewhat in the 2013-2014 season due to some off-field issues, some injuries and the departure of his former cohort in quarterback mayhem, Elvis Dumervil, who left the building as a result of a technical snafu regarding signing deadlines and fax machine technology. Local fans and pundits have been debating the accidental or intentional nature of that incident ever since it occurred.
