Every team in the NFL has questions surrounding them as they enter the season. Gone are the days of the dynasty franchises who could win multiple Super Bowls in the matter of a few years. Today, the NFL is all about building quickly, re-building quickly or rebounding quickly.
The Denver Broncos need to rebound quickly from a 2012 season that ended in disappointment. They were the favorite to win the Super Bowl and entered the playoffs last year as the top-seeded team in the AFC. Denver saw their season come to a sudden halt in the divisional round against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Broncos were looking like a strong favorite for the Super Bowl again until a "fax faux pas" forced them to lose pass-rusher Elvis Dumervil to the Ravens in free agency. The problems were further compiled when the news came out that Von Miller would be suspended for the first six games of the season. These are just two of many problems that arose during the offseason.
What originally looked like a year where the Broncos could coast to the championship is now, all of a sudden, filled with questions and doubt.
Let's examine some of the most critical questions the Broncos must answer this year in order to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in 2013.
