About Denver Broncos
A charter member of the American Football League, the Denver Broncos franchise was born in 1960. Early struggles during their AFL and early NFL football seasons plagued the franchise for 17 years. In 1977, the Broncos surprised the league by going to their first Super Bowl. Things were changing in the Mile High City, but it wasn't until 1983 that team history would be positively changed forever for the Broncos.
Denver acquired quarterback John Elway, who was originally selected in the NFL Draft by the Baltimore Colts, to man the important position. In only his fourth year in the NFL, he was able to lead the team back to the Super Bowl for the second time. Then in his fifth season, back to the big game again. Then in his seventh season, once again. Each season the team came up short, and John Elway became known for not being able to win the big game.
But for great quarterbacks like John Elway, reputations can be changed in one game. With the addition of Terrell Davis in 1995, the Broncos once again became a force. In 1997, the team steamrolled their way through the football season on their way to a 12-4 NFL record. Once again the team was in the Super Bowl, but this time with a different result. The team beat the Green Bay Packers, capturing the franchise's first championship. Then the following season, the team flirted with perfection, finishing with a 14-2 record and their second championship in as many years.
The most recent Denver Broncos season was not the most impressive. The team finished the regular season 5-11 and did not qualify for the postseason. It was the first season under new head coach Vance Joseph. After a 3-1 start to the season, the Broncos experienced an 8-game losing streak which was their longest losing streak since 1967. The Broncos are hoping to improve their record this season and return to postseason play. In the 2018 NFL Draft, the Broncos selected fifth overall pick linebacker Bradley Chubb from NC State. They also selected wide receiver Courtland Sutton from SMU in the second round. With returning players and some new notable draftees, the Broncos are all geared up to make some noise this season.
