The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 and were crowned the best team in all of football. The Broncos achieved this feat with an outstanding defense and a stellar running game, but a lot has changed since that Super Bowl. Maybe the most notable difference is the change in personnel at every level of the franchise. Gary Kubiak is gone, Peyton Manning is gone, and a laundry list of other players have departed from Denver as well. In fact the Broncos didn’t even make this playoffs this past season. That already showed that Denver is regressing and now this season it could be even worse. Denver missed out on some key free agent signings including landing Calais Campbell. Campbell chose Jacksonville over Denver and that could be an indicator of the Broncos current state. On top of that Denver is rumored to be making a push for Tony Romo. Romo is extremely brittle at this point of his career and that could just be another letdown for the Denver Broncos when it’s all said and done. Finally the Broncos have a new head coach. Their coach is Vance Joseph and while Joseph is regarded as an excellent football mind, the hire could really go either way. Truthfully it feels like hiring Joseph might have been one of the better moves the Broncos have made this off-season but only time will tell. All of these factors could ultimately spell disaster for the Broncos and we will see if they can get back to playing playoff football? The Raiders and Chiefs have both taken steps forward and it will take a little more talent on Denver’s roster to compete with those 2 teams. John Elway knows how to build a team but he has to pull some strings quickly in order to put the Broncos in a position to succeed. Time is ticking away so there is definitely some concern if you’re a Broncos fan.
