This won't be long-winded, sometimes I just need to go right to you guys and gals, the best Broncos community on the web, to get a pulse of Broncos Country.  I enjoy Twitter - but sometimes those loudest on Twitter are not the majority of Broncos fans.  Last night I was getting the sense that fans, despite winning yesterday, we not happy about it.  Be it Kyle Orton's 'performance' not being good enough, or the play-calling in the 2nd Half, or John Fox's shirt - people just weren't happy.

That disturbed me. While some may think of the Cincinnati Bengals as a 'Gimme' game, there aren't going to be any for this team.  The Broncos are rebuilding and will play in plenty of nailbiters this season regardless of the opponent.I tweeted of my disappointment last night.

This morning, on the Vic and Gary show on 102.3 FM, John Elway was asked about fans being disappointed despite the Broncos winning the game.  His answer was classic:

"I haven't heard any of that, and I hope to stay insulated from it.  I wouldn't call them Broncos fans, honestly."

Elway knows how hard it is to win a football game, and for a team missing three starters on defense(D.J. Williams, Champ Bailey and Elvis Dumervil) and their top two wide receivers(Eddie Royal and Brandon Lloyd), as well as the starting running back(Knowshon Moreno), it is usually damn-near impossible to win.  The Broncos did, however, using big plays, big defense, and just enough pressure in the end.

It wasn't perfect - and there is still plenty to work on, but a win is a win - and is ALWAYS better than losing.  So I ask you, Broncos Country, how do you feel about the win yesterday.
