Will Broncos Country feel better if the Broncos beat the lowly Bears?

The Denver Broncos have two winnable games coming up against the Chicago Bears and New York Jets. Will either game make a difference to this team’s season if they win?

After a historic all-time low last week against the mighty Miami Dolphins, I find myself wondering what I would even think if the Denver Broncos managed to win next week against the Bears.

I don’t think a win would mean much to me. They (like the team we cheer for) are a whisper of a shadow of what an NFL team should look and play like. I think years ago when I cheered for a team that consistently had a shot at the post season a win like that after 3 straight losses would mean something.

But I’m not so sure about this week in 2023.

I’ll watch and I’ll cheer. I do honestly hope they win the game.

I just don’t think it means that much. This team, its coaches, its players, and its ownership have a hell of a lot of work to do before wins start meaning much again. At least that’s what I think. Let us know in the poll and the comments how you see things.

    Nothing. Beating another messy team like ours just means the Broncos aren’t the worst, but they still suck
