Tim's thoughts on the much loved Broncos

Only one team can win the Super Bowl. That means that 31 teams do not win it. Only 4 teams play in the conference championship games. That means that 28 teams watch from home. A true fan of an NFL team is only truly happy when his/her team wins the big game. Nothing else is good enough. I need to remind myself that the Broncos had one heck of a great season and that I should not think about the awful game at the end. For most of the season, the much loved Broncos had everything go their way. Opposing defenses dropped interceptions, fumbles rolled into Broncos player’s hands, Broncos defenders were in the right place to make a pick, and running lanes opened at the right time for most of the season. During the AFC Championship game, none of those things happened. Everything went wrong for the Broncos on that day. Our defense left receivers open all over the field, our offense never found a rhythm, and Plummer had his worse game of the year. Sometimes you just cannot put your finger on why things happen in football. Maybe this was payback for the Patriots having their worst playoff loss in 5 years in Denver the week before. Oh well. After all, it is just a game. (Did I really just say that?)

On the positive side of things the Broncos did knock the Patriots out of the play offs. They beat them twice this season!!!! It doesn't matter if they won because they played better or due the Patriots playing lousey, a win is a win! Even though the Broncos didn't make it to the Superbowl they knocked the defending champs out of the playoffs and that is an accomplishment.
