Greetings OrangeMane -
I've been lurking for a very long time. My history says I joined in 2009 and have a total of 5 posts to date. Can't remember the last post I made, but reading another thread about someone leaving the fan base got me to shake the dust off the keyboard.

Disclaimer. I grew up in the 70's in Detroit and the 80's in Spokane/Seattle. Being a Seahawks fan for most of my teenage and young adult years, there was only one team I hated more than the Raiders - and that was the Broncos. I was so sick of watching Elway come into the KingDome in Seattle and torch us year after year (back in the old AFC West days).

As it turns out, I moved to Denver in the early 90's. I tried holding on to my Seattle fandom - I really did. But it lasted one or two weeks into the regular season of my first year in Denver. I remember watching Elway roll out to his right at his own 40, fling the ball across the field hitting some receiver at the 5 who catches it in stride. I distinctly remember thinking, WHY SHOULD I KEEP ROOTING AGAINST THIS GUY Whether it was simply a "if you can't beat em, join em" thing, or simply a recognition of true greatness (remember, I grew up with Eric Hipple, Jim Zorn, Dave Krieg, etc.) - I completely abandoned the Seahawks and became a Bronco faithful - a marriage that has continued now for 27 years.

I bleed Orange and Blue. Having moved out of Denver back in the late 90's,I have been stuck without a fanbase around me. Yet, my fandom has never wavered. I type this from my Bronco-filled mancave. It's time for me to get on board with the Orange Mane.

Looking forward to posting.

Some quick hits:
1) Can't stand VJ's pressers or "presence" on the sidelines. I think a huge component of being a head coach is command presence. He may have it in the locker room (questionable), but he doesn't have it in his pressers or the sidelines. I really want to like him and get behind our coach, but he makes it hard.
2) Worried about Roby. Want to see more consistency.
3) More worried about a lack of attention this offseason on personnel to cover RB's out of the backfield and covering the middle of the field in general. Not sure if we are going to be able to stop those wounds from last year from reopening.
4) Supremely worried about an injury to Keenum. While we can debate whether he is mediocre, good, or possibly great - there is NO debate that if we lose him for anything more than 2 weeks, we lose the season.

Good to be posting...

Welcome aboard!

A quick question - who do you think is the greatest QB to ever play the game, and why is it Kyle Sloter?

Always good to have new people posting. Welcome!

So that you know, earlier today, the John Elway of fans announced he was resigning his fandom. We are all grieving - yes, grieving is the word - this afternoon.

I don't envy you. In a sense, you are like Brian Griese, taking over for John Elway; or Trevor Siemian, taking over for Peyton Manning; or even Peyton Manning, taking over for Tim Tebow. You have big shoes to fill. God speed, our new friend! God speed.

I have a close friend who teaches at a very prestigious university and does word/linguistic analysis for a side job/hobby. She usually gives "expert testimony" in criminal cases and stuff like that. So cool!

Anyways... I showed this to her and the "Cold City" retires thread and said nothing... first thing she says is... "this is Cold City"

I think this would be the thread created if DenDave (Detroit) and Armchair (Sea) had a baby who was a Bronco fan.
