                  • #10
                    1) Super Bowl XXXII - John Elway's helicopter spin.

                    2) Super Bowl XXXIII - John Elway's TD draw and smiling up at Mark Schlereth.

                    3) 'The Drive II'

                    4) Elam's 63-Yarder

                    5) Brian Griese beating the Raiders with a torn shoulder (say what you want to about the guy - that took guts).

                    6) Elway Vs. Montana at Mile High back in '94.

                    7) Ed McCaffrey holding on to the ball after breaking his leg (signified how great of a player he was)

                    8) Shannon Sharpe (pretty much all of them)

                    9) TD getting 2,000 yards.

                    10) Beating KC in '97 and advancing to the AFC Championship.

                    Unfortuantely, I've only been watching the Broncos for 17 years, so my memories don't go as far back as some of yours.


                    • #11
                      1)Elway's helicopter spin run in SB 32. Thats when I 'felt' it. The moment when you said to yourself "omg, we're going to win this thing."

                      2) Just watching TD run. He was such a stallion.

                      3) The LONG ball to Rod Smith in SB 33. I remember Rod Smith was asked to be on a TV talk show after the SB, and Rod asked "hey, can I bring my friend Ed with me?" I absolutely loved the unselfish attitude those two had.

                      4) The Drive... especially the play where the ball was snapped over Elway's head during that drive. Unbelievable.

                      5) The Monday night game of Elway vs Montana... Broncos vs Chiefs.... still voted the most exciting Monday Night game. A classic, GREAT game.... I just wish we ended up with the win.

                      6) Shannon Sharp on third down. There is a thread about being "clutch." You can't define the word better than Shannon Sharpe on third down.

                      7) Jason Elam kicking that 63 yrder. That was amazing. That was just another one of those 'plays' that happened all year long that just told you that the Broncos were SB bound. We had the team, the luck,and the big plays that year. Amazing season.

                      8) OH... watching John Elway roll to the right side of the field, and throw a long ball to a streaking WR down the LEFT sidelines. Then hearing the commentator say "you are just not supposed to be able to do that."

                      9) Elway QB sneak for TD in SB. Schlereth on the ground with John.
                      Schlereth: So, hows it going?
                      John: *laughing* You (expletive) idiot. **stole this from Cinna, but its perfect. Nothing illustrates a team having fun more than THAT moment**

                      10) This probably should be #1, but seeing Elway hold that Lombardi trophy over his head for the first time, and Bowlen saying to the masses "this one's for John." Still almost brings tears to my eyes.

                      ***One of the most EXCITING plays that wasn't in a SB??? This season, game one... RUSHING out onto the field and kicking the FG with not TO's and time clickign down to 1 second. I think I had a mild heart attack.***

                        John Elway's headfirst dive to pick up the first down in SBXXXII and knowing from that moment that they were going to win

                        13 wins to open the season then winning SB XXXIII

                        Eddie Mac breaking his leg and STILL catching the ball

                        Denver 26, Houston 24, AFC Division playoffs 87 yards; 12 plays; David Treadwell 28-yard field goal

                        Jason Elam's 63 yard field goal

                        Terrell Davis 2008 yards

                        Terrell Davis Super Bowl Record 3 Rushing Touchdowns

                        Eddie Mac catching the tipped pass for a touchdown against the Vikings

                        My first (and only) trip to the original Mile High Stadium to watch the Broncos beat the seahawks

                        The Drive

                          10. This year when we rushed onto the field to beat Buffalo. that literally made my heart stop.

                            I have to get in on this..

                            1) Number one all time is "This One's For John"

                            2) being on my knees holding hands with my dad and 3 brothers on the floor screaming for someone to make a play at the end of the game and John Mobely knocks down that 4 and 7 pass from Farve to end the game and win us the superbowl.

                            3)The head first dive by elway against Green bay. I also knew right then it was gonna happen..

                            4)Beating Dan Reeves' falcons in the superbowl, Karma RULZ "Elway is named MVP."

                            5)Shannons call to the president, " Mr President Send the national Guard we are killing the Patriot's. God that was funny.

                            6) "The Drive" in the 87 AFC Chamionship game against Cleveland..

                            7) Ernest Byner(sp) Fumbled on the Two yard line the next year in the AFC Championship game, sealing a win for the Bronco's

                            8) "The Block" arguably the greatest block ever, Ed Mcaffrey Wrecks that guy from the Packers to free up Griffith and points down at the guy as he fly's past. OMG what a play. I'll never forget it ever.

                            9) Shannon Sharpe telling Mike Shannahan on the sidelines during the Falcons superbowl. " he aint respecting me Mike He aint respecting me" Mike turns and says "oh he aint he AINT o.k. o.k. the next play was a long bomb down the middle to Sharpe.

                            10) T.D. says I can't see anything, Coach says o.k. we dont need you to see on this one were gonna fake it to you. He goes into the game and runs the play blind.

                            This list could go on forever for me. I have been at this since I was 7 years old. I wiill be here till they carry me to the hole in the ground.. God I love the Bronco's

                              you all have my list down already, but one I add, eith GREAT PLEASURE, is the the total ASS THUMP at Kansas City, On a Monday night, with Elway hurt, 1998, when Bubby Brister had that LONG TD run, and KC's defense had a totall MELTDOWN in the 4th quarter, and had 3 or four personal foul unsprtsman like penalties called in a row, and they were all induced bt BIG MOUTH Shannon talkin smack.

                              I was there in person, made it even BETTER!!!
