Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for! It’s been a LONG two weeks, full of unimaginable hype, excitement, and trepidation. Unlike in 2005, this team isn’t based on smoke and mirrors, no, instead, we are the real deal. Our offense is #2 in scoring, our defense is #1 in scoring (against). We are top 5 in both overall defense, as well as against the run and against the pass. We have the all-time great Champ Bailey. We have the best defender in the NFL in Von Miller. We have the pick 6 machine in Chris Harris, and the electric Trindon Holliday!
We have the #1 deep threat WR in Demaryius Thomas. We have a 13TD WR in Erik Decker. We have our 1st round running back running like he’s a 1st round pick in Knowshon Moreno. Ryan Clady is playing at his all pro level, and of course, we have our Hall of Fame Quarterback, arguably the best quarterback to ever play in the history of the NFL, in Peyton Freaking Manning! Broncoland, it’s time to get pumped up!!!
The Broncos and the city need us today. They need us in the parking lot yelling at the Ravens as the players enter the stadium, and cheering on the Broncos as they do the same. They need us in the stands making it impossible for Flacco to hear the calls through his helmet, and even more hopeless when he tries to audible out of a bad call. The Broncos need us to be silent when Manning has the ball, and to have our thunderous celebration after each score completely deflate an old, tired, and washed up Raven’s defense. It’s time to get loud and proud Bronco Nation. Lets leave the past 14 years of fear and loathing behind us. It’s time to act like we are the best team in the NFL. It’s time to have the excitement of being the team to beat flow through every fiber of our bodies. It’s time to party like there is no “respect” hotline in the stadium!
The day we’ve all been painstakingly waiting for is upon us. There’s no time or place for fear. Today is a day for celebration. Lets take that attitude to the stadium and to wherever you might be watching the game. We’ve waited too long for this day, so lets cheer like there’s no tomorrow!
And one more thing….
