No but being 1-4 in the playoffs without Elway is.
1 playoff win in 10 years is.
Missing the playoffs for 3 straight years is.
Having massive chokage at the end of the season year in and year out is.
Making the playoffs 4 times since 1999 is.
Winning 1 playoff game since 1999.
Having Bob Slowick as your DC is a fireable offense in its own as far as I'm concerned.
Losing 52-21 in the last game of the season that determines a playoff spot in the 3rd year of a rebuilt team with an "elite QB" and an elite WR is a fireable offense... against division rivals.
How can the Broncos be considered a winning franchise when you win one playoff game in 10 years?
4 playoff appearances in 10 years?
Hovering .500 year in and year out in a relatively weak division isn't exactly screaming, winning.
