The Denver Broncos finished last year with best record in the AFC. They headed into that postseason with dreams of a Super Bowl run and that it would be the first of many to come. In a span of one gigantic misplay in the field, the Broncos suddenly found themselves knocked out of the postseason and their hopes of a championship went dim along with the lights of Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The dreams of a Super Bowl run abruptly came to an end and there was nothing but heartbreak to show for it.
As painful as that loss must feel for the entire Broncos organization, they sure have made a point of looking back on it only as a reminder that they are not entitled to anything, and that if they really wanted to hoist that Super Bowl trophy then they would need to get even better for the next season so that history would no longer repeat itself. They have surely done that and more this offseason, bringing back most of the core that bullied its way through the AFC, but perhaps more importantly, they have a healthy Peyton Manning back under center.
Manning, the former franchise quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts, was brought to Denver last year to spearhead multiple runs at Super Bowl titles, and he certainly showed that even with his advanced age and recent injury history that he could still throw the football with the best of them. Manning resurfaced as an MVP candidate for the Broncos last year as he led the team’s potent offensive attack. His play was very much reminiscent of his early days with the Colts and it indicated that old man Peyton was far from being done as an elite level threat in the league. Of course the Broncos weren’t going to take the events of last year lying down, and they showed this by being aggressive in the free agent market, snagging star wideout Wes Welker to help bolster what was already quite a potent offense. Welker, formerly with the New England Patriots, is a smart slot receiver capable of acting as a security blanket of sorts for Manning. His addition works to round out a passing attack that can beat teams either by going over the top with top vertical threat Demaryius Thomas or just by working down the field methodically with Welker in the passing game and college football standout Montee Ball with the running game. As for defense the Broncos are glad to know that Von Miller is ready to wreak havoc again and so is star shutdown corner Champ Bailey.
The Denver Broncos are singularly focused on one goal, and that is to win the Super Bowl. They came up painfully short last year, losing to the eventual champs the Baltimore Ravens in what was one of the more thrilling games in recent memory. The Broncos are back for another run, and this year, they expect nothing less than a championship celebration at Mile High.
