Rebuilt Broncos Still Tough
Byline: David Elfin, THE WASHINGTON TIMES
Contrary to perception, Denver didn't fall off the map after Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway took his back-to-back Lombardi Trophies into retirement. After a disastrous season in 1999, the Broncos have survived quite nicely.
Heading into tomorrow's showdown with surprising Washington (3-0), Denver leads the AFC West at 3-1, extending its post-Elway record to a solid 57-46. But the Broncos haven't been able to get it done when it really matters. Unlike the other 10 teams that have at least equaled Denver's success during the last seven seasons, the Broncos haven't won a division title or even a playoff game.
