Chiefs fans, it’s time to appreciate how bad the Broncos are

It’s a weird time in Kansas City right now. Some people are looking at this team, a 9 or 10 win team, and saying they’re not good enough to make a Super Bowl run. Some people say the Chiefs earlier losing streak showed their flaws. This will be another one-and-one season. At best, the Chiefs are losing at Heinz Field or Foxboro Stadium in the Divisional round.

Let’s pause for a minute and forget about all that stuff. Let’s focus on something arguably more important: The Broncos suck.

I mean, they really suck.

Folks, we didn’t go through years of Peyton Manning domination in Denver not to appreciate the world of suck the Broncos are now in. It’s glorious! Paxton Lynch looks like, seriously, the worst first round quarterback in recent memory. He was beaten out by something named Trevor Siemian. The Broncos new head coach may not even make it a calendar year. Things are bad! Or, if you’re in Kansas City, they’re great.

The best part of this is seeing John Elway. He once looked like a genius front office dude. Now he looks like a guy whose talent stops at getting Peyton Manning to come to your team.

Not only that, he blames other people. There is nothing more annoying than a leader blaming other people. It’s a bad look and only those not confident in their ability would do that. Someone like Elway, who got lucky with Manning, shouldn’t be very confident.
