Broncos 2023 New Year’s resolution: Re-create Mile High mystique
Remember when the Broncos had one of the best home-field advantages in all of pro sports? Remember when it was an extremely tough place to come in and get a win?
The Broncos need to get that back.
Empower Field is no longer a place that teams are intimidated by. Broncos fans are still one of the most passionate fanbases in the league, but with the recent failures by the team, many of those fans have been leaving their seats empty at the stadium, something that you never used to see.
Since the streak of missing the playoffs started following the 2015 season, the Broncos have just a 26-30 record at home (they face the Los Angeles Chargers at home in Week 18). That is not going to get it done.
One of the main reasons why the Chiefs and Buffalo Bills are at the top of the league is because those are two places where it is quite difficult to go in and get a victory. The best teams win when they are at home and the Broncos need to reestablish this.
Creating a winning culture at home can only be done if the first three resolutions on this list are met first.
