                Craig Penrose, in a game where he would be the winning quarterback when the Broncos beat the Kansas City Chiefs. He would start the following week against the Chicago Bears. Though he didn't finish the game, he would be the official winning quarterback, resulting in him finishing 1976 with a 2-0 record as a starter.

                Another tidbit - his two touchdown passes against KC went to Haven Moses and Riley Odoms, both of whom are in the Ring Of Fame.

                  Hello my friend mtnman and as usual you come up with correct answer. (99.9% of the time)

                  Craig Penrose passed for 176 yards and 2 scores in a 17-16 victory over Kansas City in 1976.

                  Craig also made the final touchdown pass of the day in a losing effort against New England to Riley Odoms the previous week as he replaced Steve Ramsey.

                  Enter Craig Morton in 1977 who went 12-2.

                  We ALL know what happened that year!! Orange Crush Fever as we participated in our first Super Bowl.

                  I took this weekends question, mtnman's answer and went further.

                            Today is Tuesday December 23rd, the 358th day of the year with 8 to go.

                            It Is:


                            Festivus

                            What is Festivus?

                            Festivus is a holiday held on 23 December of each year. It was created by Mr. Frank Costanza, father of Seinfeld character George Costanza. Frank became tired of holiday commercialism and wanted a holiday for the ordinary person. From this thought Festivus was born: "A Festivus for the rest of us!"
                            Festivus does not have all the commercial trappings of Christmas and Hanukkah, instead it approaches the holiday as a time to bring the family together and 'bond' with one another.

                            Festivus begins with the decorating of the Festivus pole, followed by dinner (at which time begins the airing of the grievances). Festivus is brought to closure by the feats of strength competition. And through it all, the family celebrats Festivus with a plain aluminum pole as a decoration.

                            The Festivus celebration includes three major components:

                            1. The Airing of Grievances

                            The airing of the grievances takes place during Festivus supper.
                            Each member present discusses a grievance they have with someone else present at the table.

                            2. The Feats of Strength

                            Once dinner is completed, the feats of strength takes place.
                            This is when the head of the family tests his or her strength against one participant and usually consists of some form of wrestling. Festivus is not considered over until the head of the family has been pinned.
                            A participant is allowed to decline to attempt to pin the head of the family only if they have something better to do instead.

                            3. The Festivus Pole

                            During Festivus, an unadorned aluminum pole is displayed in opposition to the commercialization of the decorated Christmas trees and because the holiday's creator, Frank Costanza "finds tinsel distracting."
                            Decorations should be kept to a minimum. The idea is to keep the cost down.

                            About the Festivus Pole:
                            Material - an aluminum pole works well
                            Height - about 6 feet tall
                            Diameter - about 2"

                              Good Morning Chris. :wave:

                              Your guess is incorrect. :nono:

                              This may also be considered a trick question.

                              EDIT: Thanks for explaining that FF!
