NFL fans will remember the most successful NFL team from recent years: Denver Broncos.
The Broncos won a Super Bowl in 2016 and then a Superbowl in 2017.
Since then, they have been a playoff team each of the last two years.
That’s an impressive streak.
They’re also the team with the most Hall of Fame players.
They have a bunch of great players, including quarterback Peyton Manning, linebacker Von Miller and defensive tackle Malik Jackson.
The team has a lot of good talent, but they also have a lot more young talent.
For instance, the Broncos drafted the 10th-rated player at the position, defensive end Jared Allen, in the first round.
They also have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, with a pair of Pro Bowlers in Von Miller, Dontari Poe and Zack Martin.
But it wasn’t always like this.
Denver started out as a rebuilding team.
In the first five years of the NFL’s existence, the team was known as the Denver Broncos, which means they were building for the future.
It wasn’t until the late 1980s, when Denver was an expansion team, that the team changed its name to the Denver Nuggets.
They moved to the Mile High City in 2000 and began their rebuild with the signing of superstar quarterback Peyton Blount, who was drafted No. 1 overall in 2000.
He was the face of the franchise for years to come.
But in 2010, the franchise was taken over by an ownership group that wanted to turn the team around and make the team more competitive.
They hired former Broncos general manager Bill Bidwill, who came in from the Miami Dolphins, to help lead the team.
He got the team back on track with a 5-11 record in his first season as the team’s general manager.
But after that, things didn’t go so well.
Denver’s offense struggled.
The franchise struggled with injuries and lost its top two wide receivers in Wes Welker and Wes Welkers younger brother Wes Jr. in free agency.
The defensive line struggled.
In 2015, Denver was one of only two teams in the league to allow the most points per game in the division.
In 2016, they ranked dead last.
It’s no surprise that fans had a hard time with the team this season.
After a disappointing 10-8 season in 2015, the Denver franchise went into free agency without a clear leader for the team and the front office didn’t have a clear direction.
The coaching staff was fired and general manager Rick Spielman took over.
The new coach was Mike McCoy, who had the Broncos in last place in 2015 and was the head coach at the University of Miami.
The biggest change was to the offensive line, which has been the biggest problem for the franchise in recent years.
After signing free agent center Mike Iupati and guard Andrew Whitworth, the new coach made it clear he wanted to change the offensive system.
This was a big change for the Broncos, who struggled in 2016 to score points on offense.
Iupatu was a free agent after this season, and Whitworth was a restricted free agent.
He started only 13 games for the Denver offense in 2017, but he was one the league’s top performers at the left guard spot, which was a problem in the past.
The line also was a weakness for the offense.
The offensive line struggled in the 2016 playoffs against the Denver Titans, who ranked 20th in scoring offense, and Denver went into the playoffs having allowed the fewest points in the AFC West.
The Titans had a top-10 scoring offense and were able to run a lot, which helped the offensive lineman position, which is the most important position in the Broncos offense.
This season, the offensive linemen have been the Achilles’ heel for the defense, with Iupatusi and Whitiffs injuries.
IUPII, who missed the first two games of the season with a shoulder injury, was the Broncos best offensive lineman for the season.
He had seven sacks and nine tackles for loss, including three quarterback hurries and two forced fumbles.
He has missed games three and four this season because of his injury, and it’s been frustrating to watch him miss games.
Whitworth is still a valuable player on the offensive side of the ball.
He’s a big-time player, but the Broncos didn’t take him with the first pick in the draft because they had no clear starting left tackle.
They traded up to get Whitworth at No. 5 overall, but it was a trade-deadline move.
It was also a move that hurt the offensive unit, since Whitworth has been injured for most of the past two seasons.
That left the Broncos with just five tackles for the first time in his career.
In 2017, Whitworth had nine tackles and three quarterback hits, including a sack in the Denver opener against the Arizona Cardinals.
That was his best season in his three years in Denver.
The next year, he had a career-high 14 tackles, but his overall sack total was
