Plenty of folks took to Twitter on Sunday to express their unhappiness that the Broncos had a bye week.
But quite a few expressed the opposite point of view.
For this last group, the benefits of the Broncos having the week off included a major reduction in stress, the opportunity to do other things on what was a flat-out glorious Colorado day and a guarantee that at day's end, Denver would still be unbeaten.
And they are. Continue to count down our twenty favorite tweets from people pleased about the bye week.
