    Pride goeth before destruction; pride cometh before the fall; no matter which version, the Broncos had fumble after fumble.

    They have 21 coaches and one can ONLY hope that they go back to the basics before the regular schedule!!

    Unbelievable, but the current Bronco roster needs to learn (1) how to line up, and (2) what constitutes a LIVE ball! (The fancy maneuvers can come AFTER the basics; this team looked like a bunch of middle-school players, trying to challenge the big boys!
