Path to Perfection
The Broncos can't hide from the pressure and the swarming media any longer. The coaches and players have been downplaying the streak, dishing out the obligatory "we're taking it one game at a time" comments when they can, but it has to be squarely in the front of their minds. If anybody can understand what they're going through, it's former Dolphins' coach Don Shula.
"As they get closer to the record, teams will be that much more pumped for them," said Shula. "It's hard to win every game you play. You can't afford even one letdown."
"You saw the home run record and all the attention that it got. I'd love for our '72 Dolphins to remain the only undefeated team in NFL history... but you also have to appreciate what the Broncos have accomplished this year."
They're not done yet, coach.
