Talk about high expectations. The Broncos won yesterday's game against the Chiefs to go 2-0 in the young NFL season, yet the way they did it -- eking out a last-minute 24-17 victory after nearly giving up a big lead, just like in last week's season opener against the Colts -- inspired Broncos lovers and haters alike to express their frustration on Twitter. Too critical too soon? Decide after counting down the following twenty photo-illustrated tweets, complete with a bonus Vine.

I know the Chiefs lost but people expected that. But nobody expected the Broncos to suck that bad!

Did not get a chance to watch Broncos game but unimpressive seems to be word of choice. Can't pull that shit in Seattle.

Broncos are good but they need to finish out games strong! No more win by a touchdown bull crap

@Broncos Defense is a joke

This game was bad for the Broncos no matter what happens. Chiefs will think they can compete, San Diego knows they can. Raiders still suck

Man...broncos fans still talk shit and we almost came back to win with 4 pro bowlers out and 2 other starters out but oh well #ChiefsKingdom

Broncos played like complete crap on both sides of the ball. Way below expectations. Alex Smith was okay. Shot ourselves in foot. Few times.

Broncos will do well in the regular season then blow it in the playoffs...AGAIN.

Well chiefs suck.. But the broncos are definitely not the team I thought they were.. Not even close to the best.

I love watching the @Broncos blow a half-time lead by letting every 3 and anything convert to a first down. Good job, guys. Really helping.

Holy crap close game. Scarey. Broncos defense too many penalties. I still love those Broncos:)
