Quarterbacks. The bane of a team’s success. That team can have one of the best defences in the NFL, but if they don’t have a quality pivot, they are pretty much consigned to failure.

We all know the story of the Browns and their 28 starting QBs since returning to the League in 1999. But there are other teams who, if you look closely enough, have had a shorter, more pungent curse lain upon them via their failure to recognize when talent was or went bad.

I posit that one of these teams is the Broncos. Look at their roster of starting QBs since Elway retired in 1998:

  1. Brian Griese (38)
  2. Gus Frerotte (7)
  3. Jake Plummer (54)
  4. Steve Beuerlein (5)
  5. Danny Kanell (2)
  6. Jarious Jackson (1)
  7. Jay Cutler (37)
  8. Chris Simms (1)
  9. Kyle Orton (33)
  10. Tim Tebow (14)
  11. Peyton Manning (63)
  12. Brock Osweiler (7)
  13. Trevor Siemian (20)
  14. Paxton Lynch (2)

God, that’s depressing. I don’t even need to look up how many 9-7 through 7-9 seasons those QBs encompass – I can feel the cromulence coming off the list. The outlier years of Peyton Manning mask the aroma of “good enough”. And with the announcement that the Broncos are going back to Brock Lobster for this Sunday,

I have chosen to examine the Broncos for this week’s dip into team social media.


First off, let’s start with the fear I had typing “broncos.com” into Google. Now, I consider myself a man of the world, and I’ve seen a lot of things in my day, including pornography – both print AND video! Memory serves that there was a fair amount of the homosexual type of pornography involving the name “Bronco” back in the day, and I worried typing that address into the search bar that I wasn’t going to end up on a Bronco Nagurski fan site.

which actually fucking exists!

Well, what I discovered actually left me kinda sad.

It was nothing more than a fan site for someone…who loves manly horse-themed sports teams? I guess that’s why there’s no Mustangs or Cowboys.

Now, the Denver Broncos website – denverbroncos.com – is another example of how the simple things can make a team’s site visitor and user friendly.

It’s sleek, the links are easily clickable, and the things they want to highlight are RIGHT THERE and not buried amongst other clutter. Also, they don’t allow any comments on any stories, which really is a boon to analyzing their account. Really, if the team ran as well as it’s social media department, they’d be on the right track.

It does, however, leave me short when it comes to looking for HAWT TAEKS! So – fortunately or not – that’s what Twitter & Facebook are for.

Let’s start with the end of the game Monday night. The loss to the Chiefs appeared on the website like this

but Twitter got its own version

and the events were recounted by the fans thusly, equal parts interrogative

declarative,

and succinct.

It left Thomas from Broomfield

and Connor from Boulder

highly flummoxed. So, where to turn?

The Broncos weighed their options,

and the fans declared theirs. I declare theirs “mostly delusional”,

with a dash of lunacy

and a hint of realism.

Finally, the team made their decision known.

Hoo boy –

But, eventually, the fan base got to “acceptance”. Because – really – where else where they going to turn?

And dare I say, a little hope?

 

Hyvät naiset ja herrat, your Denver Broncos social media. It’s only going to get worse after the Eagles game.

The Bronco fans are fucking spoiled idiots.

Tebow fans are fucking delusional idiots.

The Griese years were basically a 500 team, sure. Plummer had a 49-26 record, three consecutive playoff appearances, and was played well in one of the best P*triot losses ever; taking them out of the race to win three in a row. Cutler as a kitten had so much potential, with the Donks they were competitive, but not ELITE. Same with Orton. Then the Anus Presser had mucho success.

A SB victory, an AFC championship, six division champs, nine playoff appearances, 170 -118 record, with two really bad seasons in there. Through all that a great home field record. Also of some dispute, but the most domestic violence arrests, and the most charges dropped. Girlfriend stabbing player (B Marsh) should be tops in the league. Unfortunately no girlfriends burning down mansions on the team.

While no the P*ts or Stiller spoiled, still can’t hold a candle to Cleveland and others during this time period for “suffering”.

The domestic violence was through 2014; Dallas may have caught them by now.

Hey, they haven’t had any father’s get up and disappear for days during a Broncos game, so, things are on the up and up.

monty this seems strange to me

Simeon is played the worst quarterback that I can remember a Bronco playing even if the line isn’t that good there’s no excuse for some of his decisions he’s lost

I notice you mentioned Tim Tebow. Perhaps you’re suggesting dfo offer an hourly feature talking about him? He does, after all, win playoff games.

That may or may not have been the beginning of the end for me.

That first/banner image is awesome. They should sell posters of it to Chiefs and Raiders fans.
