Terrell Davis: The Broncos Super Bowl championship was an “aberration”

The Broncos enter this season looking for their sixth consecutive AFC West title, and former Broncos running back Terrell Davis knows it’s going to be an uphill battle.

The franchise’s all-time leading rusher, Davis dropped by Broncos training camp on Monday and was extremely open and honest about the Broncos’ recent success.

“Last year was kind of an aberration,” Davis told Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro of the Afternoon Drive on Mile High Sports Radio, “and you really can’t expect the same things to happen this year.”

While not the normal take on a Super Bowl champion, Davis’ thought process holds true. Teams don’t win on defense alone. Teams don’t win with sub-par quarterback play. Teams like the Denver Broncos don’t win championships.

That’s what history has taught us, and if the Broncos think of themselves as anything more than an aberration, they’re putting themselves in a dangerous position.

“There are so many variables,” Davis said. “Just because you have a good offense and good defense doesn’t mean you’re going to win a Super Bowl; it just doesn’t. It just doesn’t mean that.”

The Denver Broncos need to get better, particularly on offense. This AFC West division continues to improve, and unless they improve, too, they could get left in the dust.
