Denver are heading into the offseason the back of an extremely successful, if ultimately disappointing, 2013 campaign. Peyton Manning’s heroics over the course of the season took them all the way to the Super Bowl and optimism was high going into the game. That optimism evaporated in the disaster that was the Super Bowl, from the terrible first snap to the turnovers and domination of the Seahawks.

Going into the offseason, therefore, all of Denver’s decision are focussed on one thing; how to make that step up from nearly men into Super Bowl Champions. For them to achieve this goal is easier said than done, as there are several issues that need to be confronted and addressed prior to the start of the 2014 season.

So what are the issues facing this Denver franchise, heading into the offseason?
