No matter how the Denver Broncos play this season, Broncos Country will be able to look forward to celebrating the past once again. This time we’ll be cheering for Super Bowl XXXIII and celebrating the Hall of Fame enshrinement of Demarcus Ware.

For a team that has been wandering in the wilderness for years, this kind of nostalgic ceremony is honestly something I look forward to. Super Bowl XXXIII was for for me pure magic. It was a statement about our team, culture, and a proper send-off for John Elway.

Unlike the previous Super Bowl, the Broncos were the clear favorites for a large part of the season. The offense was an absolute freight train and we were all riding the waves of both Terrel Davis being unstoppable and John Elway tearing up opponents when they would gear up to stop the run.

One of the coolest things about the season was just how good the team as a whole was. Even with Elway missing games, Bubby Brister stepped in and everything just kept working. The team was just that good.

As a big Elway fan, it was awesome to see him take the top off the Atlanta Falcon defense on a magical TD pass that honestly cemented his Super Bowl MVP award.

I also am looking forward to celebrating DeMarcus Ware as well. His talent and leadership were a core part of our team being able to win Super Bowl 50. Sure, he played the vast majority of his playing years for the Cowboys, but he was all in on the Broncos for the short time he was with us. I’m very thankful for having such a stand-up guy on our team who deserves every accolade he gets as he is awarded with his yellow jacket.
