About Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos Tickets 2019 Season Outlook
The Broncos are 1 of 8 teams with new head coaches in 2019 after replacing Vance Joseph with former Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. John Elway refuses to say the Broncos are rebuilding and trading for QB Joe Flacco has only raised expectations. Denver ran the ball well last year and should continue that with running backs Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman entering their second years.
The defense is full of play makers, so Fangio will have the tools to try to mold his new defense in the form of his 1st ranked Bears defense from last year. Still, in this strong division, a lot will have to go right for the Broncos to find themselves in the playoffs.
History of 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.
