Denver Broncos: Three New Year's Resolutions For 2015
We all spend the days leading up to the New Year’s holiday thinking of the previous calendar year in terms of accomplishments and challenges, and at least for many, a list of resolutions get produced to help us become better versions of ourselves. Whether it is fitness related – going to the gym, working out at home, or just getting exercise – cutting out certain foods, or simply trying out something different, the point of resolutions are to look back in retrospect to recent events and find ways to address the shortcomings that keep testing us. The Denver Broncos came within one game of winning the 2014 Super Bowl until their opponent, the Seattle Seahawks, ran roughshod over them in producing a dominant win. Denver wanted to retool their offense to produce a more diversified attack, so they let receiver Eric Decker walk in free agency and replaced him with Emmanuel Sanders, while they also added DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward to help them toughen up their defense. While the additions did jump start their offense to produce some truly remarkable statistics, the unit struggled later in the season with injuries although they did win another AFC West title in qualifying second in the 2015 playoff chase. The Broncos had optimism to qualify for another Super Bowl, but as the calendar turned to 2015, Denver couldn’t overcome multiple mistakes and a lackluster performance in losing to Indianapolis in the divisional final. With the upcoming season approaching, we take a look at three possible resolutions for the Broncos in 2015 to help them regain their swagger and hopefully bring a title back to the Mile High City.
