6 months ago, I would have been pleased to know that the Broncos would finish 8-8... But then the Broncos did the unthinkable and won 6 games in a row! Since the AFL-NFL merger, only 2 teams started 6-0 and issed the playoffs. Now there are three teams with that distinction. And I think it is important to point out that we missed the playoffs by TWO games, not just one so that makes me sad too.
I had perfect attendance this season for the first time in my life and there were some highlights for sure! For starters, I have to say that the weather this season was INCREDIBLE!!! The coldest game was Oct 11th against the Patriots where I think the high was near 30 degrees. Even the Thanksgiving day, Dec 20th and Jan 3rd games were in the high 30s or low 40s! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect season from that respect!
I got to see the team wear their tradition blue uniforms:
And my personal favorite, their orange jerseys:
And for a couple of games they wore these AWESOME throw back jerseys! I almost didn't recognize the team in yellow and brown, and for more than one reason!
While I didn't necessarily have a favorite game, I would have to say the super-close-until-the-final-seconds Oct 4th Cowboys game (win of course) was one of the standouts. The weather was amazing and I got to sit with three of my favorite people!
Look!!! I'm wearing flip flops!!
One of the other highlights of the season was getting to spend so much time with my BFF. Over the past few years, I was missing her a ton and it was great that we got to share so many Bronco games and amazing memories! I can't believe I don't have a single picture of us, but I'll be sure to take more next year!
So, I am almost ready to close down the season that could have been. I am still anxious to hear about the offseason and the amazing coaching decisions yet to come (right?) but until next August, I will find some other passion besides the Broncos. It was a roller coaster ride of a season to be sure.
