I read this post and I was like, yeah! Doesnt bode well for the Broncs!

First one is mine:

Our run of 4 Super Bowl wins in 6 years started in 1974.

We were on the road for the AFCCG that year. Here are some comparisons between our opponent then and now, the '74 Raiders and the '05 Broncos:

1) Both had a QB nicknamed 'The Snake'

2) Both these QB's had shaggy beards (BTW, Bradshaw had a beard too, but, like Ben's is less substantial that jake's, so was Terry's when compared to Stabler's).

3) Both teams were in the AFC West

4) And finally, both teams beat, in the divisional round, beat the team that had won back-to-back Super Bowls the previous two years (Oakland knocked off Miami 28-26, and Denver beat New England 27-13).

Another one (not mine):

In 1996, Denver was seeded #1 and lost at home in the playoffs. The following year, they were a wildcard and came in and knocked off the #2 seeded Pittsburgh Steelers at Three Rivers

Well, last year, we were seeded #1 and lost at home in the playoffs and are now coming in as a wildcard to face #2 Broncos at Invesco.

FINALLY (also not mine):

Former Steeler Bubby Brister got his Super Bowl rings with the Denver Broncos, whose two-year run started with that win over Pittsburgh.

We have Tommy Maddox on our team. Maybe that's why he's still here!
Very Interesting.

Another observation on the Bubby & Tommy angle. Bubby was a back up to a star on his way out, Tommy is a back up to a star on his way up.
