    He redeemed himself in 97 with the forklift.

    MDP's failure to drag his fat ass (I'm obviously pretty un PC) off the field before the snap of the ball, thus giving us a 12 men on the field penalty, was one of the reasons we lost to Jax in the '96 playoffs.

    Every time I think of that clown, that's the image.

    Yes, he was big. Though I wouldn't use those terms. But that's me and my PC self.

    Undersized, I can see that. But slow-T.J. and Swenson were the fastest side-to-side linebackers on that defense; definitely not slow, even by today's standards, in my opinion.

    I often hear people say that today's players are bigger, faster, stronger, better, etc. But I don't know if I TOTALLY agree. I mean look at guys like Jack Ham, our own Tom Jackson and Bob Swenson-they were FAST linebackers. Look at Jack Lambert or Randy Gradishar-strong and tenacious. Joe Greene, Rich Jackson, Harvey Martin, Billy Thompson-guys like that are in my opinion equal to guys today. I'd like to hear what others have to say on this subject; very interesting topic!

    Even I will admit that.

    I really liked Tony Jones and Michael Dean Perry (yes, the Fridge's brother) when they were with the Browns. So, naturally I followed them when they were Broncos.
    Yaaaaa........the forklift

    I'd like to test that theory. Are you saying that the Steelers from the 70's, or Cowboys for that matter, wouldn't beat say the current day Cardinals or Browns or Raiders? I think that they'd kill 'em!

    If it were possible for these two teams to play each other, which team do think would win?
    The 1998 Broncos as they had a much better offense and a good enough Defense.
    The 1977 Broncos were a poor version of the 2000 Ravens

    I'd like to see that game!

    Wouldn't it be something if they could play that game SOMEHOW! I'd have to say that the '98 team would win, but I can guarantee you this-that "Orange Crush" defense would've had some moments to shine, yes, even vs. Elway, T.D., Sharpe, etc. I wonder how Morton would've faired vs. Romo, Mobley, Atwater, etc. Too bad that they can't play this game through computers somehow; they probably can!
