I can’t get over the fact that the Broncos have to play at least one game in the playoffs after going 10-6 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2012.
That is a massive task for a team that was one of the NFL’s most exciting teams of the past decade, but the Broncos will be forced to deal with this, too.
The Broncos were the last team in the NFL to have two straight playoff appearances, but their best seasons came in the 2010s and 2011s, when they were one of just four teams in the league to win two straight NFC Championship Games.
But this year is different.
The team was swept by the Packers in Super Bowl XLVII and finished 2-14 in the postseason, including one of their worst seasons ever.
The team lost quarterback Peyton Manning and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who were all drafted by the Broncos in the 2016 draft.
And the Broncos won’t be playing in a Super Bowl again until 2022.
So this year, they will have to adjust to the fact they won’t have Manning and Sanders for two straight years.
They have to find a new quarterback, a new wide receiver, a fresh set of defensive linemen and a new offensive line to replace what could be the best defensive line in the history of the league.
There are some obvious areas for improvement, but it will be interesting to see how well the Broncos can execute.
The biggest thing that has to happen for the Broncos is get back to being the team that won the Super Bowl, a feat that seemed impossible just a few years ago.
The Broncos were one-dimensional in 2016, but they did have a defense that was arguably one of top five in the game.
They had the best special teams unit in the entire league and were the only team in football that had three players with over 1,000 career snaps.
The offense is also solid, with a quarterback that can be effective and an offensive line that can play.
And it has to be good.
Peyton Manning had the most interceptions in NFL history, which makes him the biggest reason why he’s the Broncos quarterback of the future.
But that’s only part of the problem.
There are too many other reasons to worry about how this season will go.
In fact, this team is going to be really, really good, but there are so many factors that are going to come into play for this team that we won’t know for a while.
I will say this: Peyton Manning is not going to make this team better, even if he’s in the best shape of his career.
The question is whether he will make it better for his teammates.
Manning will be an interesting case study, as he will be the third-most productive player in the National Football League over the past three seasons.
He’s only 26, so there are more years to go before he has to play.
But I’m sure that Manning has some thoughts on how to improve his body.
I’m not sure he has any plans to lose weight, but I can tell you that he is working on that.
And I’m guessing he is.
The more physical the better.
So if Manning isn’t going to take his weight down and he isn’t losing the bulk, what will be Manning’s biggest weakness?
The Broncos’ defense will be at its best with a pass rush that has been elite in recent years.
But the Broncos were never a great pass rush, and they haven’t been in a few seasons.
There have been many great defensive players in the past who have been at their best when they can rush the passer.
If Manning is going do that, he has some options.
He can go into a 4-3 defense with more outside linebackers and a strong inside linebacker to play in the slot.
Or he can move to a 3-4 and have a defensive tackle and a linebacker.
The possibilities are endless.
It would be interesting if the Broncos did decide to move to that 3-3 scheme.
The defense has looked great with two outside linebackers, and the Broncos could probably have two outside linebacker units in the same scheme.
That could work out pretty well for them.
But if Manning does go to a 4.5-3, there are a few ways he could be better.
First, the Broncos should bring in a new outside linebacker.
That is something the Broncos had to do last year with Malik Jackson and then did with Dontari Poe last season, so it’s possible they could do it again.
The most obvious candidate is former Broncos defensive end Anthony Spencer, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
Spencer was a top-10 pick in this year’s draft and could have a long career in the Broncos defense.
Second, the team should sign some players.
The draft is deep with a lot of young talent.
The best thing about signing new free agents
