Love of orange and blue prevails during rough patch for the Broncos

For the sake of Broncos Country, let’s hope Denver doesn’t take as long as the Chiefs to get back to relevancy.

Good morning, Broncos Country!

Sports fandom is a lot of like a relationship.

There are ups and downs, but you stick with it through thick and thin.

When it comes to the Denver Broncos, the last four years have been difficult, to say the least. Not since the 1960s and early ‘70s has this organization had a run of ineptitude quite like this.

In a word, it sucks.

As I told Adam Malnati on the MHR Radio Podcast, what makes it even worse is the success of the Kansas City Chiefs. As if it’s not bad enough, now Broncos Country has to do deal with that BS.

But that’s the life of being a fan. Through the good times and the bad. Just under five years ago, Denver won Super Bowl 50. That doesn’t excuse the last five years of no playoffs, but it’s still an incredible moment, season and team.

As a fan of the Broncos, the expectation is that it happens again.

Since it’s not in your control, you hope for the best. That the team you root for with a passion gets it figured out sooner rather than later.

For the sake of Broncos Country, let’s hope Denver doesn’t take as long as the Chiefs to get back to relevancy.

The other positive in all of this? At least it’s not the Las Vegas Raiders dominating the NFL.
