For those who tout the advantage of parity in the NFL there's a common mantra, which states that on any given Sunday, any team regardless of record, can beat any other team.
Behind closed doors at Dove Valley, that mantra has become more of a question mark, asking on any given Sunday exactly which Denver Broncos team will show up, and who, if anybody, are they capable of beating.
With Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers turned into the most pivotal game of the 2004 season, that question looms large.
Will it be the team that tore apart the Kansas City Chiefs, embarrassed the Oakland Raiders and walked all over the New Orleans Saints?
Or will it be their underachieving counterparts, who blundered away a one-point loss to Jacksonville, were embarrassed on national television by the Bengals, gave one away in the snow to the Raiders or stood in awe as Michael Vick and the Atlanta Falcons schooled them in the finer art of running an offense?
Against San Diego there will be no room for errors, blown assignments or poor coaching. No room for errant left-handed throws, sub-par punting or wayward field goals.
No room for any of Denver's darker side.
Sunday it's all about football.
Unfortunately, that what scares Bronco fans the most.
