Default Two years ago, week 12.

Denver was 3-8, coming off a home-field loss to the St. Louis Rams.

The Broncos would be heading to Arrowhead in week 13, where they would lose again and drop to 3-9. McDaniels would be fired the following day.

We would finish the season with the NFL's worst defense, allowing 471 points (29.4 per game) and over 6,200 yards.





Just two years ago.

I could just imagine the 2011 draft had we not fired McD...

"And with the second overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, the Denver Broncos select Jonathan Baldwin, Pitt"

I'm tearing up at the idea.

I remember the Rams game, was snowing and cold as hell and I had an absolute blast with the people around me. So many people left early.

God that season was terrible.

Can we trade all our picks next year to get Josh back?

For those of you who want to releve all the highlights of that loss in KC, here's a link to the gamethread:

Beware, though, of all the desperate and futile "boob mojo" that starts about halfway through the game.

Though I suppose one could argue that it's the only reason anyone would go back and live through all that again.

Those were some dark times. Watching the Broncos play was a chore that year, especially around that point. Some of those pro-McD threads around that time would be a fun bump.

2. His little caught on TV "win a MF'in game..."

I hated watching him goose step around after that game like a storm trooper.

I loved watching his pressers, you could turn the volume off and just by watching him tell if they had a good week or bad week(s). My favorite thread is the time I took screen shots of all his tic's during one of his last pressers.

I hope kFc asks him to be their next HC and GM!

Watching him fist pump after squeaking by the pats was embarrassing. If he didn't have Nolan his head coaching tenure would have lasted an offseason
