Broncos playoffs chances are over

No team has ever made the playoffs after starting a season 3-7.

If you are still hoping against hope the Denver Broncos can surge back into playoff contention, you should take a quick history lesson.

There have been around a hundred teams that have started a season 3-7 and not a single one of them has ever made the playoffs. These Denver Broncos will not be the one that does either.

It is time for Broncos Country to accept those facts and embrace the very real possibility of a tanking to a top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Right now, the Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers, and New York Giants all hold worse records, but the Broncos did lose to those Giants earlier this season.

The 2018 quarterback class is looking like one of those great ones that come along every once in a great while, so John Elway could have a chance to draft an elite quarterback talent to help reset the organization on the right path.

Until then, it should be the Paxton Lynch show from here to the offseason as he gets his shot to prove he has a future in the NFL.


Do you want to see the Broncos tank?
