The Broncos play in the high altitude city of Denver and have enjoyed
two Super Bowls victories while sending multiple players to the Hall of Fame. Among those Hall of Famers is Broncos and football legend John Elway.
Elway played his entire career in Denver and helped the team sell millions of Denver Broncos
tickets and win back to back Super Bowls in 97’ and 98’. Elway also brought the Broncos to 10
playoff appearances in his 16 years as a Bronco. While still young, Elway led the Broncos
to the 1987 Super Bowl in front of a sellout crowd in the AFC Championship game as
he marched 98 yards down the field in the 4th quarter on a series of plays that is now famously
called “The Drive.”
The Post-Elway era for the Broncos has had both its ups and downs. They still continued
to sell many Denver Broncos tickets equating to numerous sell outs, but have not been able to find
their next franchise quarterback. Only a couple years after
Elway’s retirement they started quarterback Jake Plummer who had the skill set and also
helped the team to consecutive 10-6 seasons but was never able to get home field in the
playoffs and sell more Denver Broncos tickets.
The most controversial quarterback brought in after Elway was definitely Tim Tebow, Tebow
had a great college career but was never considered an NFL quarterback, yet the Broncos
drafted him in the first round in 2010. The move may have been more for publicity and a way
to sell more Denver Broncos tickets than to win games. Either way, Tebow had a short career in
Denver because of the team’s acquisition of Peyton Manning which led to trading away Tebow.
The high altitude of Denver led the team to originally name their home field Mile High Stadium,
they have gone through many sponsors over the years whose name gets added on, yet the Mile
High part always stays put. Currently the stadium is sponsored by Sports Authority and will be
so through the 2036 season.
The new Mile High Stadium was only built in 2001 and still has state of the art features that
all purchasers of Denver Broncos tickets can enjoy. Mile High Stadium features a Jumbotron
scoreboard and video screen the shows replays to the fans who also have the option to choose
from numerous food vendors while at the game.
Sports Authority Field at Mile High is a remake of the original Mile High Stadium, the first
stadium was a multi-purpose field used for both the sale of Denver Broncos tickets and also for
Colorado Rockies baseball games. The final years for the original Mile High Stadium came to
a close in 2002 when the stadium was brought down in pieces in a three month period and is
now used as parking space for the new Mile High Stadium.
Many more Denver Broncos tickets will be sold throughout the years because of how devout
the Denver fans are about football based on the history of the team and their passion and hope
to again return atop the football universe. Purchasing Denver Broncos tickets will not only
wield the memory of a football game into your mind, but also let you experience being a mile
above sea level and the opportunity to learn all about the Denver Broncos history.
12-4-12: Peyton Manning has had a sensational year reinstating himself as one of the NFL’s elite Quarterbacks. With 29 touchdown passes and a QB rating of 104, Peyton has the Broncos in 1st place and poised to win the division. This Thursday the Broncos will be home to face the Oakland Raiders in what many expect to be a blowout win for Denver.
1-9-13: Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos look to make a serious push at the title. Bouncing back from a serious neck injury and putting together an MVP type of season is only goal number one for Peyton and the Broncos. Getting over the Patriots bugaboo is also a goal they look to achieve but they will have to face the physical Ravens first. Don’t expect the Broncos to overlook the smarts of the Raven defense for one second. This is one of the marquee matchups of the year on Saturday so expect the competition to fit the bill. The Broncos impressively won 13 games and have the best record in the AFC. On Saturday, their record and their will has to be put to the test.
