Broncos fans definitely aren't predictable. After last week's narrow victory over the Chiefs, plenty of Denver loyalists took to Twitter to declare that the Broncos suck even though they were 2-0. But following yesterday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Seahawks, most tweets were upbeat because Denver lost a nail-biter, as opposed to being blown out again as in the Super Bowl. Here are our top twenty examples, illustrated with images from the game.

Tough loss for the Broncos but still the best team in the AFC. No one has come close to beating Seattle in Seattle lately

Even though I was rooting for the broncos in that game, I wasnt that mad, they made up for the fact that they got blown out in the Superbowl

Wish Broncos D at least gave Peyton an opportunity to match Seattle. Bad tackling. Bad coverage. Bad penalties. Good game though. #DENvsSEA

@MadDogRadio Evan, I think it is a moral victory for the Broncos. Seahawks showing more of a bad spread between home & away performances.
