Default How many are still fans of the team? What i've seen lately at the OMane

Cutler threads everywhere

McDaniels threads everywhere

Bowlen threads everywhere

Posters going back and forth and sometimes it has turned nasty. It seems as tho there are fans of each of those but they aren't acting much like fans of the team itself.

No matter who is the ''organization'', whether it's Bowlen or he sells, the ''team'' is the same - the Denver Broncos. I became a fan of the ''team'' long ago, before I even knew what an ''organization'' was. I'm still a team fan; regardless of win-loss record, head coach, qb, owner, stupid color change , etc.......

I say all is well until the team moves, then we've got a big big problem.

Sure we can all b**** about moves the team has or hasn't made, or who is right/wrong in the current situation but I think as fans this year is going to be very exciting in terms of the team.

New HC
Possibly a new QB
Speculation that we're moving to orange jersey's
Revamped defense which includes Brian Dawkins

We may not win, we may be downright terrible, we could be great - who knows.

Question is this: How many are still fans of the team - how about the organization? How many are fans of a position on the field?

I'm a huge fan of the Broncos still. Not sure what I think about the Mane anymore.

I think 99.9% of us love the team...and that love shows in the fact that we all are so opinionated about the best direction for the franchise. My stance is to keep the franchise QB and make him happy--if that entails canning McD--do it. A contract extension perhaps? So be it. Others think Jay needs to go, just as some favored getting rid of Shanny and others thought that we were nuts in canning our HC.. I would not quit following the Broncos for any reason.

It's like politics. Im very conservative and lean towards being a republican, but I'm still an American and love my country. Of COURSE I'm still a fan of the team! I just can't imagine that team letting go of one of our brightest spots on the roster. ugh.

He has to be a franchise QB first before you give him the treatment. Thats been my stance but no matter what Team first. Once this is resolved we will all go back to civil discourse and mild name calling rather than civil war!

Definitely still a Broncos fan here, first & foremost. I've taken a few swipes here & there, but always at both Josh & Jay. There's enough crap flying around to spread the wealth for both of them. And then some.

Was a fan of the Broncos before there was a Cutler, before there was a McDaniels, before there was even a Bowlen. Will be a fan long after some or all of those names are gone.

Where's the poll?

I'm still a fan, just not all too happy with the direction the team is going.

There has only been one guy who said, "If Cutler goes I am done with the Broncos"

But I think it was in the heat of the moment.

Exactly. Everyone is just pissed about what is going on right now. People have varying opinions about this situation and how it was/is being handled, but most everyone is still supportive of the team. I think people are passionate about Jay, no matter who you think is wrong with this whole thing, most believe he has great promise. Just needs to work on his leadership.

Was that "Throw me under the" Buss Cook, or Sheff

I will always be a bronco fan, been one for over twenty years and will die a bronco fan. Just remember no one player is bigger than the team, Not even one of the greatest QB's(The Man #7)could do it alone. The love and commitment will always be there with or without Cutty

Team fan checking in, fan of Cutler too he looks too good to ignore, and I am hoping to be a fan of McDaniels after he takes us to the playoffs this year.

Everybody has their own opinions about what is best for the team. Everybody is still fans of the team.

Love the team.

Jay is the franchise QB of the team and love him too.

Pat is a crazy old man who was a good owner. I love what he did for us in the past. Not his fault now, age will do that do anybody. The team survived before he got here and it will survive just fine after he leaves.

Josh has never coached or played a game as a Bronco. Respect is earned not given, and he's off to a poor start at earning it.

what do you mean questionable? the pic is from diabetesdaily.com...... Oh I see the website at the bottom.

Damnit I just wanted a kid raising his hand like grade school. I was trying to find the kid who has his hand raised so long he has to support it with the other hand.

HA like this one:



LOVE THE KID SLEEPING!
