6 Years Ago Today, The Broncos Won Their Last Super Bowl
It seems like a lifetime ago - or at least 60 years ago - but six years ago on this day, the Denver Broncos, led by Peyton Manning and MVP Von Miller, won Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, California.
The only remaining member from that memorable and history-making squad is placekicker Brandon McManus. Everyone else is long gone, but that doesn't mean we will every forget them.
Gone, but certainly not forgotten because this was a very special team and a stacked roster that quite honestly probably should've won more than one Super Bowl together.
Guys like Manning, Von, Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr, TJ Ward, Malik Jackson, Demaryus Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Owen Daniels, CJ Andersen, Ronnie Hillman, and so many more.
The names bring back memories but so do the pics from that day that the team posted on their Instagram today:
As far away and as long ago as this seems, six years isn't really that long. But when you start to throw names around like Vance Joseph, Josh McDaniels, Brock Osweiler, Paxton Lynch, or any of the other 159 quarterbacks that have been through the revolving door at the Broncos facility it seems a lot longer than six years.
I'm not going to lie, I have a good feeling about this current Broncos team. And with the new coaching staff coming in, I really believe this current squad isn't far away. In fact, I think they're a quarterback and a couple little pieces here and there away from legitimately competing for a championship.
But until that happens, let's relive February 7th, 2016, and Super Bowl 50.
