The Broncos pre-97 were the Chiefs in my lifetime. Great teams that couldn't get it done when it mattered.
pretty sure it mattered to Marty Shottenheimer when he lost in the AFCCG in 1986, 1987, and 1989. Pretty sure it mattered to Warren Moon in 1987 and 1991. Pretty sure it mattered to Chuck Knoll in 1989. Pretty sure it mattered to defending AFCChamp Patriots in 1886.

No, all playoff games mean something. It was unfortunate that the Broncos were outclassed by clearly superior teams in the Super Bowl, but let's not pretend that playoff games are meaningless.

Hell, they STILL replay the 1986 AFCCG on NFLN. To this day, I can't go to Cleveland and mention I'm a Bronco fan without being told how much Elway is hated.
