I don't know, I still build a defensive Demon if I'm Denver. nothing sticks in my head more than that Seahawks Super Bowl/ and that Panthers Super Bowl.... seemed unstoppable in the first, vast underdogs in latter.... Defense still wins rings, or at least is has until the NFL makes Defense and afterthought with rule changes...

It's way too hard to build a defense like those teams had. It takes a great team and a good QB. Look at Jacksonville this year. Defense is full of studs yet they cant stop anyone.

NFL needs to attract the millenials. They are on their phones . Phones = fantasy football. Fantasy football is about points. Points are scored by the offense.

Denver needs to recognize the direction.

I know it won't be popular around here but that KC offense is fun as hell to watch.

Exactly, with all the changes to protect the quarterback I'm not sure you can build a defense to stop all this scoring. Elway needs to get his head out of his a** and start hiring coaches that are offensive minded.

I enjoy watching KC this year since our team is out of it. I also like to watch SD when they get Bosa back.

the rules changes may have twisted that paradigm. I'm not sure I love the NFL product as much now, it essentially takes Defense out of the equation in a way.

the guy you describe as " inspecting his colon" just won the #50 SB by building a great defense just 2 years after he put the most prolific OFFENSE of all time on the field.
So to all my mane friends who continue to say such repulsive things about JFE, you can all grab" your own appendages and impregnate yourselves" !

I love Elway and what's he's done for this franchise but praise also comes with criticism and the product he's putting on the field each week is joke. He needs to recognize where this league is heading and make the proper adjustments accordingly!

criticism, YES !
tar and feather people however, need to put down their pitchforks and check themselves prior to any crucifixion talk .
there would be no wagon to hitch to without ELWAY, so enjoy the ride and excuse the occasional wrong turn along the journey.
I have been a bronco fan since 1960, day one, and other than FLOYD FREAKING LITTLE
and our very first superbowl season, OUR BRONCOS have little to show outside of the ELWAY YEARS !
