Default Which season are you enjoying more? Tebowmania or the PeytonDomination

Yeah I'm going here, because I think it's an interesting question.

Personally, Tebowmania was just great, every game was edge of your seat, and some of those endings were just out of this world. The playoff win against the Steelers was one of my favorite moments as a Broncos fan.

But that same fan in me can't help but love every minute of this season. If it was up to me we would win every game by 50 and never have a game in doubt, so I definitely prefer this season.

But really, we are luck to have such awesome seasons back to back after was was a huge lull since the Cutler days.

I can understand those that may find this season kind of, well maybe boring, especially this winning streak. Or maybe not...

Well what do you think?

The end of games were better last year, but that's not a good thing. I love having the 2 seed and knowing we can move the ball when we need to. I am not as much a fan of waiting until the final seven minutes of a game for something good to happen.

It's not even a comparison. It's like asking, "What would you rather do - go see the freak show at the county fair, or go see the London Symphony Orchestra?"

This season, I've realized how much I've missed good football. Last year was generally painful to watch for two hours and forty-five minutes every Sunday.

The Tebow thing was fun...during the last 3 minutes of games. The other 57 minutes were boring and sucked. Give me this team with a real offense a badass D and the number 2 seed over gimmick football any day of the week

I liked both and the media going nuts as we kept winning with them b****ing about our 60 yards passing last season was the fun part. I expect wins from Manning and how we won with Tebow was crazy fun. It pissed people off. I know we go farther with Manning but being asked about Tebow and the Broncos last year from Broncos' fans and non fans was pretty fun. Only difference is we will be going farther in January and good chance into February with Manning.

This year 100x. Last year was fun but the end result was always known. Denver is a SB threat this year and last year only happens once in every thousand years where all the luck lines up for one QB less flawed team.

Good analogy...last year was like the 1000-year flood.

Even if the Broncos are one and out this year, there is no question this team is better than last year's and has a much better shot of winning a title. No need to wait... I'll take this every time.

After a while, I was actually EMBARRASSED by our dumb luck. The Patriots game exposed what happened with a REAL opponent. It was a mess. I'll take Peyton, for the Super Bowl win, Alex...

They don't have a better shot if they go one and out, technically...

What I'm saying is that the heart favors the present. Last year all the threads were "Most exciting season in Bronco history!!!!!!!!!!111"

I disagree. But to make my point, I'd rather compare the 2011 team to the 1996 team. The 2011 team technically had more playoff success. Which team, though, had a better chance to win a title? I'd take the 1996 team over the 2011 team, every time. Not that it wasn't fun last year and that playoff win wasn't great, but the team wasn't going anywhere without the big changes. The changes were made and now the team has a chance to go where that 1996 core eventually went.

I was pretty crushed after that Jacksonville game. At that moment it seemed like we were never going to see the promised land. Had 97 never happened nobody would look at 96 with any kind of fondness.

Toss up right now.

We won a playoff game last year (by passing on the #1 pass D!), and we've locked up the AFCW already this year and are shooting for the #2 seed. So yeah, about even, with a slight edge to this year because it's not done yet.

This years team beats that Steelers team by 32 points. They were banged up beyond all belief when we got them last year.

Please. Last year's Steelers were 12-4. This year's Steelers will be lucky to get to 9-7. And didn't we play them early on this year? Oh yeah, we did. If I remember right, we were trailing well into the 4th.

Yeah didn't we play them early on this year when they were the healthiest they have been all season.

We had this discussion already. If they were 'healthier' in terms of who was on the field it was very marginally so.

But it mostly ended in a bunch of contortions like when Ryan Clark being missing in January was shouted from the rooftops as being a huge unfair advantage. But then when he was absent again this September, it suddenly wasn't such a big deal. Polamalu being hobbled and Harrison out for the opener this year was also pooh-poohed.
