You make the best of what's still around. For those in KTH-land, that means acknowledging that the Broncos have already packed it in for the season, so it's time to focus on the Avs and Nuggets. Both are sitting in first place at the moment and undoubtedly enjoying a little holiday break the last couple of days. The Broncos too appeared to be on vacation Monday night when they got thumped by the Bolts in front of a (one can only imagine largely disinterested) national audience. Let's recap shall we. In two games against the Chargers, the Broncos offense has garnered a grand total of 2 field goals while getting outscored 64-6. If that's not an embarrassing mark, I'm not sure what is. Consider that this particular opponent is a division rival who, at one point of the season at least, we thought the B'cos would be in competition with for the AFC West. Guess not. The only thing interesting at this point about the Broncos' season is how high they'll be in the draft and what type of offseason shakeup takes place. Shanny needs to be held accountable for this mess. If he isn't canned (which he won't be), he needs to be at least stripped of some of his control.
But I digress.....This was supposed to be a positive post about the first place Avs and Nuggets, who, by the way, both had exciting and important wins Sunday night. While the folks over at Invesco spend another post-season on the outside looking in, at least they're smiling at the Pepsi Center.
