Rolling Stones are the Steelers of the Rock World

Steelers.  Love em or hate em, you gotta give em credit.  They have perhaps the best continuity of any NFL team in history.  Virtually no turnover at the ownership and management levels.  They field good teams every year.

 

Rock bands break up for a variety of reasons: one guy is doing too many drugs, another guy just isn’t good enough, etc.  But a major reason is that one guy’s britches get too big. Let’s face it.  Mick Jagger IS bigger than the band.  But to his credit he is still with the Stones.  And to the band’s credit, they have stuck with Mick all these years. They all realize that the sum is greater than the parts.

 

How does that relate to the Broncos?  We have had and do have our share of NFL superstars.  Elway, Champ Bailey, etc.  To my recollection we have only had two “superstar” problems.  Cutler and Portis.  They both thought they were bigger than the team and forced their way out of town.  IMO, Shanahan also got too big for his britches and was forced out by Bowlen.

 

The road to hell is paved with good intentions and lined with inflated egos.  To you, my friends, I raise a toast in hopes that this year the Broncos re-establish the highest ideals of the team and great success!
