Actual conversation today…
KC Fan: You a Bronco fan?
Me: Yes, I am. We had a pretty good year.
KC Fan: You guys got destroyed in the Super Bowl. Your offensive line was exposed by the Seahawks.
Me: Yeah, they pretty much did to us what they did to the rest of league all year long. That defense just pushes teams around, keeps the opposing teams defense on the field until they break. They beat us up.
KC: And Elway – his signings this offseason have been stupid. He hasn’t signed one offensive lineman. You guys are going to get beat again.
Me: So you would have been opposed if KC had signed arguably the best corner and safety available in free agency plus a great defensive linemen?
KC: You don’t get it. The Broncos need offensive line help otherwise you are just going to win the AFC again and get beat by the NFC again. Don’t you get tired of rooting for a team that loses in the Super Bowl?
Me: So to recap – as a Kansas City fan, this is your explanation of why over the last 20 years your organization refuses to win a single playoff game?
