    Both?

    Gun to my head, I'd say 1997 because there was a real chance we could have three-peated.

    Or the absence of the rage from losing to the Jaguars would have resulted in fewer (including zero) championships.

    Nah. I might buy into Elway retiring a year earlier than he did, but that team was extremely talented.

    As much as I want to say the Jags I think that SB would of been harder. However, the 3-peat would of been nice.

    We would of smoked the 49ers.

    That's tough. I chose '97 in the poll because I think that was a legit "team for the ages" and they don't get the respect that they should.

    Basically this. The 90s team was an all-time great team that doesn’t seem to measure up in national eyes to other dominant teams, and winning that game might have propelled them to three. That 2013 team was really good, but not as good as those teams. I feel it’s more likely the 97 teams wins the super bowl than it is the 2013 team.

    1997. Broncos should have won that game.

    Broncos were flagged for having 12 men on the field. DL Micheal Dean Perry was slow to get off the field and was two feet from the sidelines when the ball was snapped. The Jaguars retained possession, later kicking a field goal. I remember all Broncos fans (and that includes me) were extremely upset with this big penalty.
    Everyone called that penalty is one in a million.

    2013. We beat the '97 Packers but I'm not so sure '96 Denver beats '96 GB. I hate writing that, but '96 GB was a real powerhouse and our guys were not quite there yet. I think we might have beaten them 3 times in 10

    Some of the '98 Broncos games are now up on Youtube in their entirety. I just watched the beating we put on Dallas (same week I met my wife!) and both the O-line and TD were so effin' good that year.

    My first instinct is the '97 game, but the 2013 path to the Super Bowl would've been much easier and we would have DESTROYED the Niners. The Jaguars game sucked, but all we knew was disappointment at that time and I truly believe that is what catapulted them to two straight. 2013 was more of a gut punch to me because I had realistic expectations with how great that team was. I think 2012-13 was the best Broncos team since the '98 one. That stupid Ravens game affected me mentally for weeks. The worst part was that as cold as that game was, the next (what would've been Championship Sunday) weekend was GORGEOUS in Denver. There it was, a beautiful weekend and I was all depressed because we SHOULD'VE been routing the Patriots on national TV on our way to our first of multiple Super Bowls with Peyton.

    Jags loss hurt way more, even losing SBs didnt feel that bad.

    This might be unpopular, but it’s definitely Michael Dean Perry for me. Less points scored in that game. That 2013 game was a defensive cluster**** all around. Ravens too, especially for having such a highly touted defense.

    I'll say Moore. The 97 Broncos as a team laid an egg against the Jaguars. It seemed to start in the 1st quarter that ended with 2 Denver TDs but 12 points on the scoreboard? That wasn't Perry's fault and if the team had performed better throughout the rest of the game Perry's penalty wouldn't have made much of a difference.
