Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner. The last time the Broncos made it to the Super Bowl was Jan. 31 1999. Now, 15 years later, they’re finally going back to try and bring it home for Denver.
Everyone at Colorado State University-Pueblo is excited for our Denver Broncos. Students are geared up and ready to cheer on their team. Whether they’re going for the Broncos or Seahawks, the trash talking has definitely picked up, as we get closer to Super Bowl Sunday.
“I’m proud of the Broncos, it’s been too long, they deserve it” said Patrick Hilaire, a senior majoring in sociology, “it should be a good game; hopefully the Broncos can bring it home for us.”
Hilaire isn’t the only one hoping the Broncos take it all on Sunday, Destynee Miles, a junior majoring in psychology, hopes for the best for the Broncos.
“I’m not really going for anyone, I’m just going to watch the game but I am proud of the Broncos for making it to the Super Bowl, I wish them nothing but the best,” Miles said.
For every Bronco fan there is Seahawks fan that doesn’t want the Broncos to win.
Ramon Smith, a freshman majoring in business said, “The Seahawks are going to take it, Broncos don’t have a chance, the only good thing that may help them is Peyton Manning and that’s why they made it in the first place.”
Many students argue that Broncos will win on Sunday, but that quarterback Peyton Manning isn’t the only reason why they’ve made it this year.
“It’s not just about Manning, he’s not the only one that’s in the game, his receivers are clearly doing their job at executing plays,” said a student majoring in biology, “I love my broncos, they’re a team and people need to remember that before saying Manning is why we’ve made it, every player is doing their part; it’s a team effort.”
Clearly it is a team effort, without receivers on the Broncos like Demaryius Thomas, leading the team 92 catches for 1430 yards and 14 touchdowns, Manning may have had a more of difficult time getting the team where they’re at now.
Both teams do have their work cut out for them as the Broncos are the highest-scoring offense since 1990 and the Seahawks have the defense that gave up the fewest points this season.
“It really is going to be a competitive game, both teams have great players that are ready to do what they need to get their team this ‘W’” said Hilaire, “Broncos have a good offense but Seahawks have a good defense too so they both better come ready to play.”
As both teams should be, it’s going to be a battle between the league’s top-ranked offense vs. the league’s No. 1 defense.
“At the end of the day someone has to take home the Lombardi Trophy and our Denver Broncos are definitely capable of doing that,” Miles said.
