So, not only is this great. It is a hell of a lot better than limping in and praying for miracles like last year
Ain't that the truth?

I was thinking the same thing. About where we were at this time of year, striving for that 8-8 record, hoping for 9-7. I know, I know, he has a rookie QB, he has injuries, blah, blah, blah. There isn't an excuse that hasn't been made for Shanahan

Although you'd think we we're 0-13 right now from the tone of about 3/4 of the posts around here.
I don't think it's been that bad. The usual merry band of idiots/trolls come out after a turn over or punt, but overall I think as a fan base we're excited. Especially true now that we're chasing down a 2 seed that a few weeks ago seemed impossible.

Back to back division titles. Nine game winning streak, having just clobbered the Ravens in Baltimore. First round playoff bye is within reach by winning two home games against teams with combined record of 7-21. Top 5 total offense; (2d in scoring); top 4 total defense (5th in scoring); Peyton Manning at the helm and Knowshon Moreno replaced by an alien.

All things considered, I guess I'm satisfied at the moment.

Given the understatement, I'm guessing you're of Irish heritage?

4 UDFA starters on Defense...2 starters out for the year. 2nd Scoring Defense in the NFL.

I know I've complained sometimes to you, god. Sometimes I haven't always done the right thing. So thanks. Thanks for the Broncos season that you have bestowed upon us...and thank you for Peyton Manning.

Somebody told me today that Adam and Eve are the offspring of an alien mating with a monkey...which kinda made sense to me.

Are you telling me that aliens are now mating with lizards too?

You guys won a playoff game back in the 1993-94 season. What more do you expect?

How is it that Bronco fans still don't appreciate how great of a HC Mike Shanahan is? Will you be frowning when he gets a bust in Canton?
Calm down, Kyle.

Is it not okay to state for the record that while Shanahan is a great coach, his act seemed to go stale in Denver? I understand defending your dad, but this seems ridiculous.

Not only are the Broncos in the playoffs, but they are a force to be reckoned with. Who wants to come to Denver and play these Broncos?

Nobody. That's who. Let us take a moment to breathe the exalted air. Enjoy.

I've been waiting for yesterday's game since 12/31/2000. Denver lost 21-3 in Baltimore in the playoffs. Former Bronco Shannon Sharpe caught a double-deflection and ran for a TD.
"This was the first time the Broncos were prevented from scoring a touchdown in 28 postseason games over a span of three decades."

Been waiting 12 years for Denver to hand it to Baltimore in their house. So sweet.

You would have to add DWill and Damien Nash to the heartache.
