After the Broncos' humiliating defeat in the Super Bowl, a lot of us fans felt an apology was in order -- and plenty of Twitter-using Denver players agreed. At this writing, none of our five most memorable Broncos on Twitter have weighed in, disappointingly enough. But a slew of other notables, including Shaun Phillips, seen here, have sent out I'm-sorry tweets, with many adding that the loss will only inspire them to work harder in the off-season. That's what we like to hear. Count down our top ten below. Number 10:
Sorry Bronco fans for the performance we had tonight, thanks for all your support...
