Q: If you had to compare the first half of Denver’s season to a movie which flick would it be and why?
A: At this point, the Broncos most resemble Bill Murray from Groundhog Day. Each Sunday is a repeat of itself, losing game by game. The Broncos have not won two consecutive games since October of 2009. It’s a wake up and pour the coffee, throw on an orange/blue shirt, and turn on the Broncos kind of Sunday. The same thing is happening – the team is losing and hasn’t made a playoff appearance since 2005. The Broncos have been forced to re-examine their team and their priorities just like Murray re-examines his life. One could argue that like Murray, the Broncos have made suicide attempts (e.g. hiring Josh McDaniels, trading Jay Cutler) to test their durability. The Sundays play out exactly like they did before. The Broncos can’t run the ball, they can’t stop the run, converting on third downs doesn’t happen all while turnovers do all too frequently. Has the Groundhog seen his shadow yet because it’s a been a few long and cold seasons in Denver.
