What a pathetic game. Sure, Broncos defense plays good, but can the offense do nothing all season long?

Blame Peyton Manning, blame the O-line... for being inexperienced? No. Blame Rich Kubiac for not putting an acceptable offense out there.

Cleveland should and probably will win this game.

But what a pathetic game it's been.

Oh looky here. Denver defense to the rescue once again.

Edit: DEMARYIUS THOMAS IS WORTHLESS!

PEYTON MANNING IS WORTHLESS!

SACK! DENVER DEFENSE, STOP BAILING THE OFFENSE OUT.

Lay down Denver. Just take the loss.

AND THE CLEVELAND COACH ICED THE KICKER! REALLY?

Why would you extend this turd? Yuck. Puke. Gak.

All very true. Pat Bowlen has seen more years in the Super Bowl than he has seen losing seasons. But I tend to credit Elway with getting us to games that maybe we didn't belong in.

Given the weeks in which this thread was active, I'm surprised nobody mentioned the 43-8 Super Bowl loss. The way the public piled on us after that game it's nothing shy of noteworthy it wasn't mentioned here on this thread.

The Seahawks scored on all three phases and were up for that game. The Broncos slept walked through it as evidenced by that first snap. Also, Fox admitted not practicing with noise so the team wasn't prepared for the crowd noise. He also made the team swap hotels just before the game, throwing a curveball into their routine. He clearly didn't have them prepared to play. That would have made things difficult against any team, forget a great team like Seattle.

Other than that, we have a 55-10 Super Bowl loss to our credit, and three additional losses to a combined score of 108-40. The Broncos are 2-5 in the Super Bowl. They either win it, or lose big. Mostly lose big. But you have to love a team that can be relevant enough to get to 7 Super Bowls. I'd prefer them not have lost so many, but they've played some of the all-time great teams in those losses, too.

For worst regular season losses, the Broncos 59-14 loss to the Raiders in 2010 has to take the cake. 2010 was an awful season for the Broncos, seeing them finish 4-12 and the worst Broncos team in franchise history in terms of W-L record. The defense was unwatchable. I believe by the season's end they were allowing just shy of 30 PPG. I watched every game that season and just had to laugh as week in and week out the opponents just scored at will.

But that game with the Raiders was unlike anything I've ever seen. I've never seen a game where literally every little break, even penalties against the Raiders, just seemed to work in their favor. A punt, one of just a couple the Broncos forced, seemed to hit an invisible wall, bouncing straight up before settling on the 1/2 inch line, pinning the Broncos literally on their own goal line. Every break seemed to go the Raiders way. Early in the 4th they turned the motor off and just cruised, but they could have broken 70 if they'd have chosen to do so. It was something else.

I was sitting front and center at Ericcson Stadium for this gem of a game. Interestingly these two teams played to a 12-9 finish the following season, except that game was a hell of a lot more interesting than this one was.

On TV, probably that Steelers-Dolphins MNF game in '07 that ended as a 3-0 Steelers win. When the highlight of a game is the ball getting stuck in the turf, well that speaks for how the game was.

Packers over Jets 9-0. It was a terrible game. There were no TDs and only field goals.

Buccaneers & Falcons on a Thursday night last year. Tampa was losing 35-0 before they got a first down.

Niners vs Rams this month. I have watched a lot of football during my lifetime, and I have never seen a QB not able to pick up that the defense purposely leaves receivers wide open. All those muscles, tattoos, and athleticism can't make up for the fact that Kaepernick has a very low football IQ, cannot read defenses, cannot adjust, and doesn't have the touch. Glad to see the Niners making moves to give him the boot.

Rams have so little respect for Colin Kaepernick they leave receivers uncovered - SBNation.com

Broncos vs Seahawks super bowl, Broncos 49ers super bowl, and Broncos Redskins superbowl.

Apart from that, the rest has been pretty good.

I would also say Packers vs Cardinals in Week 16 last year. The offensive line was banged up so bad and also the game between Green Bay and Detroit in Lambeau. That was stunning.
