The Denver Broncos need a quarterback. I am typing this right now, and I am in shock.
Just a little more than a month after winning Super Bowl 50, the defending champions are getting ready to head into the 2016 season with Mark Sanchez under center? How did the Broncos get here? I guess the answer to that question doesn’t really matter, but every time I look at anything about Denver I shake my head. Trust in Elway is a nice motto, and one I buy into, but I just don’t get it. How did the Denver Broncos arrive at a place where the fans are hanging on every little snippet about Colin Kaepernick, or Ryan Fitzpatrick? Is this our football world?

If Brock Osweiler truly couldn’t handle the shadow cast by Elway and Peyton Manning, then he needed to go. No one wants a quarterback who is constantly looking over his shoulder. If John Elway decides he is going to roll with the Butt Fumble and a backup no one has ever heard of, so be it. We trust in Elway. He has given us no reason not to trust him.
The truth is that Elway went about building a great defense, and it worked. He knew the Broncos could not win a Super Bowl with just Peyton Manning slinging the football. And the defense is mainly intact after some free agency departures. However, the most important position on the field is still quarterback.
The window to win a championship closes quickly, but this defense will keep it propped up for a little while.
We all know the options, and Broncos Country is waiting. I am not sure what we are waiting for, but the Sanchize was not the awe-inspiring pick up that we were expecting to see. Waiting on a Kaepernick trade? Not exactly building confidence. Losing out on Robert Griffin (if you can call it that) was strange. I just keep shaking my head. How did we get here.
The draft is coming, and things happen all the time with draft picks. Players move. Teams trade up, and trade back. Franchises make big decisions, and anything can happen. I’ll repeat the motto, In Elway We Trust. If Sanchez is the guy, so be it.
The window to win a championship closes quickly, but this defense will keep it propped up for a little while. If the offense can be good, Denver can repeat. That being said, having the quarterback situation figured out sure would go a long way to building this fan’s confidence.
