  • RIP Dave Costa

    I read in the Denver Post this morning that former Bronco DL Dave Costa passed away at the age of 71 after a long battle with leukemia. The Post didn't have the obit online but I did find this link:

    Costa was the first Bronco I ever saw in person. He belonged to the same parish my family belonged to and I remember seeing him in church when I was a kid.

    RIP Mr. Costa.

    Dave Costa, Paul Smith, Rich Jackson and Lyle Alzado/Pete Duranko may be the two best D-Lines (1970-71) the Broncos have ever had. There was a center fold two page photo of Dave Costa knocking Joe Namath off his feet and flying through the air captured by a photographer published in Life magazine the year after the Jets had won Super Bowl III.

    Requiescat in pace, #63.

      Is this the pic? Namath isn't flying through the air, but it looks like he took a good shot from Costa.

          That's it! Haven't seen it in years. Great photo. :thumb:

          Dave Costa was an old school tough guy.

          This reminds me of how much I loved the American Football League in the 1960s. It was one of the things that made surviving the sixties possible.
