Is Broncos Country actually hopeful at this point in the season?

How much did this win against the Bills mean to the fanbase? It sure seemed like a significant win...

This win felt way more significant than it should have been. The team has only clawed its way to 4-5 after all.

But the horizon looks brighter with just a hint of blue and orange dawn rising for the first time in a very long while.

I’m not gonna lie, though... the cynic in me is saying to give it another couple of weeks. We’ve seen many of these players lose an awful lot of games. We’ve seen a team go on a 3-game winning streak and finish with a 7 - 10 record in recent history.

But this just feels a bit different. The team looks sound and most importantly the coaching looks solid for the first time in ages. When I’m watching the game, I’m not worried that much about when timeouts will be called or whether or not the coach will challenge the right plays.

There’s a lot of football left in this season and I think Broncos Country has more hope in their team than they’ve had in a very long time.

Is it just me, Broncos Country? Hit up the poll and let us know where you stand so we can get a finger on the pulse of what the Denver Broncos fanbase thinks.

    I think they finish with a winning record. It won’t be enough to get to the playoffs, but we’re headed in the right direction and it feels great!

    I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop. I’m not going to be excited until they get back to .500.

    This is all a fluke. The team top to bottom are overpaid losers. Russell Wilson is washed and I’m in denial of what’s going on because I’m actually a rival fan who only takes joy in the Broncos losing
