Panicky tweets below.
The recently repaired Facebook outage shouldn't have been that big a deal in Colorado, given that it mainly took place overnight. Nonetheless, local press figures took to Twitter anyhow to express their shock/prompt some laughs, as did social-media addicts on the other side of the planet, who had it far worse.

The reaction among members of Twitter Nation to the departure of John Fox as the Denver Broncos' head coach was mighty mixed -- and if anything, the team's decision to hire Gary Kubiak, John Elway's former backup, to take over is generating an even more varied reaction. Some tweeters are overjoyed, while others are unimpressed by Kubiak's coaching record (an iffy stint in Houston but an acclaimed effort as offensive coordinator in Baltimore) and doubt his temperament is any more fiery than that of the guy he's replacing. Check out our picks for the twenty most memorable tweets below, illustrated by images from Kubiak's arrival in Denver, which was covered as if he was a world leader.

The Broncos' latest dispiriting playoff defeat, this time at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts, was followed by two pieces of big news: the revelation that Peyton Manning had a quad tear, not a bruise, and the announcement that coach John Fox and the team are, in a carefully worded phrase, "parting ways."

Fox's departure triggered a Twitter explosion, with reactions including fear, panic, anger, confusion and more. Here are our picks for the twenty most memorable tweets on the topic, illustrated with NFL memes -- including some hilarious speculation about the next coach.

Your Denver Broncos may have a higher seed and home-field advantage in Sunday's playoffs match-up against the Indianapolis Colts.

In recent weeks, plenty of Broncos fans have been worried about how lousy Peyton Manning has looked even in victories. But Denver boosters got a reality check on Sunday against the Chargers, when a flu-stricken Manning went out with an injury and his replacement, Brock Osweiler, stunk up the joint, Johnny Football-style. Fortunately, Manning returned and led Denver to a 22-10 victory, but that didn't stop Twitter Nation from worrying and/or celebrating the thought that Manning might wind up on the shelf. Here are the photo-illustrated top twenty tweets about that and related topics, including the its/it's error on one of Osweiler's tattoos -- plus a bonus Vine of what happens when Peyton Manning tries to block.

Yesterday's Broncos win featured cons as well as pros. True, Denver beat the Buffalo Bills 24-17 in a contest whose outcome was never really in doubt, and the running backs continue to ball at a high level. But for the most part, Peyton Manning looked absolutely awful, throwing a couple of ultra-embarrassing picks in a performance that ended his consecutive-games-with-a-touchdown-pass streak at 51. Afterward, fans on Twitter didn't know whether to celebrate or worry. Check out our picks for the top twenty tweets, including a photo of Von Miller's bizarre headgear choice and a wacky Vine of refs fist-bumping after a Denver touchdown that has fueled Bills Nation paranoia that the officials wanted to help Peyton win by any means necessary.

Everything seemed to point to a Broncos loss against Kansas City last night, including a road game on a cold night and a desperate opponent fueled by an embarrassing loss (to the Raiders!) and the illness of a team leader (Eric Berry may have cancer). Yet Denver still emerged with a key 29-16 win, as well as the admiration of Twitter Nation, whose citizens seem to have a new respect for the squad despite -- or perhaps because of -- a surprisingly lackluster performance by Peyton Manning. Check out our picks for the top twenty tweets below, including a funny Vine and a Chief who may or may not have been caught giving a ref the jerkoff gesture.

Denver offensive lineman Manny Ramirez isn't getting upset about a Broncos loss in this amusing screen capture, which has already spawned a popular Vine on view below: Instead, he's pissed that Brandon McManus, who the Broncos picked up after unwisely jettisoning Matt Prater, missed his fourth field goal in his last eight attempts. But a defeat could have easily happened: Denver needed a huge fourth quarter to cement a 39-36 victory over the Miami Dolphins. Afterward, fans on Twitter were torn, with most elated but many uncertain about whether the squad has what it takes to make another Super Bowl run. Here are our picks for the twenty most memorable tweets, supplemented by the aforementioned Vine.

We knew going into yesterday's match-up between Denver and St. Louis that those confidently predicting a Broncos blow-out were either stupid or delusional. After all, the Rams are a better team than their record indicates, with a win over Seattle standing as Exhibit A.

Afterward, Twitter Nation debated whether the contest was a momentary slip or an indication of much greater problems. Count down the twenty most memorable tweets below, supplemented by photos from the game.
