The Denver Broncos are set to make another run at the Super bowl this year. They would be the first team since the 1993 Buffalo Bills to get back to the big game after losing it the previous year. The expectations are high in Denver, and the players are not shy when talking about the goal for this season.
In a recent interview with Jeff Legwold, from ESPN.com, Broncos starting cornerback Chris Harris said the team had high hopes for this year.
"Guys know what’s at stake this year, at least they should -- it’s Super Bowl or bust for us," Harris said.
On Monday I was able to interview Broncos starting middle linebacker Nate Irving. At the end of the interview I asked him what he thought about the declaration from Harris.

It’s clear that the Broncos are not shying away from expectations this year. Broncos fans should consider this a great mentality for the team to have. Some teams could crumble under the expectations the Broncos have had since Peyton Manning arrived in 2012.
Instead of falling apart, the team rallies around their goals and thrive. The Broncos have won 26 regular season games over the last two year, and they are set to win at least 10 or more games this year. Winning the AFC West and getting to the AFC Championship would be great goals for most every team in the conference. That’s not enough for the Broncos…and they’re okay with that.
