Emmanuel Sanders dubs 2015 a bust unless Denver Broncos win Super Bowl

The 2014 season turned on it's head so very quickly for the Denver Broncos, failing at the very first hurdle in the playoffs.

Last year seemed like it would be the Broncos year. Peyton Manning was breaking NFL records left, right and center while C.J Anderson stepped up his game and came to the fore as the team's new, dependable running back.

But everything came undone in the first round of the playoffs against the Indianapolis Colts. The Broncos withered and died on that February night, something Emmanuel Sanders seems determined not to let happen again.

The wide receiver Sanders came out today and revealed that new head coach Gary Kubiak let everyone know that the Championship is the one and only goal this year, with anything else being a failure. 

Win or Bust

"The message was definitely world championship from the start," Sanders said Monday, according to ESPN. "That's what [executive vice president of football operations/general manager John] Elway wants. The focus is bringing a world championship to this city."

"We want to get back there and we want to win it. The main focus of this group is to win a Super Bowl. That's the expectation. If we don't bring a Super Bowl to this city this year, then it's a bust season."

Last Chance Saloon?

With Peyton Manning leading the offense, the Broncos will always be favored to do well in the regular season and head into the playoffs as top seeds. It's how they do when they get to the playoffs that will determine those chances of becoming champions.

If the Broncos fold like they did in the 2013 Super Bowl and against Indianapolis last year, then there goes what will likely be their best chance to win a Championship. Manning won't stay around forever and there will be a period of transition when Brock Osweiler or whoever steps in to the void.

But with a new coaching staff in place, Broncos fans will be optimistic about their chances and so they should be.
