I don't talk about sports much on this site, but they really are quite an obsession for me. NFL football has become a deep passion of mine over the past few years, but I am nervous about the coming season. As a long-time, die-hard Denver Bronco fan, this offseason has been absolutely, incredibly terrible. Coming off the disappointment of last season, where we lost the last 3 games of the season to blow a 3-game lead in the division and miss the playoffs, I was hoping for a promising offseason of rebuilding. I guess I should be careful what I wish for.
The changes started quickly with the firing of long-time head coach, Mike Shanahan, and the hiring of rookie coach, Josh McDaniels. The blockbuster of bonehead moves came soon after with the trading of Pro-Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler. A few weeks later the team wasted all the great picks they received in the Cutler trade by having a terrible draft, and now they are on the verge of trading away their best wide receiver, Pro-Bowler Brandon Marshall.
I cannot believe the breakdown that has happened within the Bronco organization and I am preparing myself for the weekly devastation I will experience as I watch my team getting slaughtered by each opponent they face. Needless to say I'm worried about the weekly depression I will sink into on Sunday afternoons. Why do the Broncos feel the need to ruin my Sabbath (and my life)?
