    The Broncos gave up 55 points, a Super Bowl record. Had Leon Lett not celebrated too early, the Cowboys would have broke this record and spared us the shame of giving up the most points in a Super Bowl. Later, Lett became a Bronco.

    One of thee most boring drafts however two of those picks urned out to be fantastic
    I want to say.....

    WINNER!!!

    In 1997, The Denver Broncos went on to win the Super Bowl. But in the preseason draft, The Broncos only selected 3 players, the least in their history.

    Their draft went like this:

    Round 1, selection #28 Trevor Pryce DT Clemson
    Round 3, selection #67 Dan Neil G/C Texas
    Round 4, selection #124 Cory Gilliard S Ball St.

    Pryce was selected to The Broncos 50th Anniversary team, while Neil went on to have a good career, but as far as I can tell, Gilliard never played for The Broncos, and only played one NFL game, for The Bengals.

    As an aside, if you can prove that there were only 3 first rounders on the team, and that never happened before or after, you get a prize.

    Name the year and the "process" (as I call it).:thumb:

    WINNER!!!

    The Broncos are 1-10 in postseason games played on artificial turf. Their lone win was in the 1997-season AFC Championship Game at Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Stadium.

    Sorry (good question), it's only to do with postseason play. And a clue......it would not be relevant many years ago, given what I would call 'improvements in technology'.

    Sorry DB,,,,not the answer I have, but if you can verify that 10 other times we did not, I'm good for giving points.
