Super Bowl XLVIII: Are Denver Broncos The Greatest Show On Turf?

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos offense has simply been unstoppable this season. John Elway and company have designed a well oiled machine with the great Peyton Manning at the controls. They are stocked and loaded at receiver with Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, and Wes Welker all being threats to make a big plays on the field.

They have also found a gem of a tight end in Julius Thomas. The former basketball player was plucked in the fourth round and has become a stand out in this deadly offense thanks to his size and superior athleticism. It is remarkable what this offense is capable of when everyone is doing their job and the Broncos play mistake free football.

Are they the greatest offense of all time? We can point to a few offenses that have been great in the past. The 2007 New England Patriots set all sorts of records with Tom Brady and Randy Moss forming perhaps the deadliest duo of all time. They almost pulled off the unthinkable and went undefeated until falling in the Super Bowl.

The old “greatest show on turf” was also a sight to behold. Kurt Warner, Marshall Faulk, Torry Holt, and the great Isaac Bruce formed a heck of a foursome as the St. Louis Rams stormed their way to a Super Bowl title thanks to their run-and-gun style.

None of these stellar offenses compare to the Broncos of this season. They shattered the points mark at 606, and Peyton Manning shattered every conceivable regular season passing record on his way to an MVP lock of a season.

We are witnessing the greatest offense in NFL history. Sure, there have been some great ones that preceded this, but never this great. Cherish it, folks. We may never see this good of an offense again.
