Best Guess for When the Broncos Will Return to the Super Bowl - 2010
The Broncos back in the Super Bowl? It's not happening anytime soon, and here's why: Josh McDaniels. He's demonstrated that he knows the game, but his XXL ego will keep tripping him up, as he proved when he ran defensive coordinator Mike Nolan out of town, and when he convinced himself that he could reverse Brady Quinn's horribleness. He'll go on to be a fine coach, but it will happen after he flames out in Denver and is replaced by someone whose bravado won't dent the floorboards. Then, and only then, will the Broncos be back in the Super Bowl.
