Though most of Broncos Country have already moved on from the 2019 season, for some of us, there was still some interest in what happened in the post-season. Maybe you were cheering on former Broncos or coaches with ties to our team. Maybe you were cheering against our division rivals. Maybe you are just like me and you are a fan of the game of NFL football.

I’ll be completely honest with you all...it kinda sucked watching the chefs get a championship. Mainly because I saw it coming a mile away...one team left it all out there on the field of play and one team played it safe. The former are champions. The latter are Super Bowl losers.

But, at the end of the day, I’m happy for an honest football playing franchise to have won. It made sense and they played well.

Now, we get to turn the page and look forward to 2020. We have our own young gunslinger learning the ropes of NFL football. We have a 2nd year head coach who is a defensive mastermind getting more of the kinds of players he needs to run his system. We have young talent in spades and salary cap room to maneuver.

I’m honestly pretty hopeful for 2020. For all the heat we’ve poured on Elway over the past few years he has shown that he’s getting past the weaknesses of the past and building a bright future for our team with smart draft picks and hopefully savvy free agent moves.

While the draft is always the biggest hype in the offseason, I honestly think more of our success next season hinges on the way the team spends its salary cap in free agency (and in turn extending its players). Hit me up in the comments and let us know what you think.
