    Sam.....I think you are talking about another thread we used to have where the winner was the next one to post a question, whereas this thread has always been open to all (per FL).

    Super Bowl XXII started out very well for the Denver Broncos. After forcing Washington to go three-and-out, the Broncos scored on their first play from scrimmage, when quarterback John Elway threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Ricky Nattiel, giving Denver a 7–0 lead after just 1:57 had elapsed in the game. It was the earliest touchdown any team had ever scored in Super Bowl history to that point (the record was later broken by Jerry Rice in Super Bowl XXIX, and again by Devin Hester in Super Bowl XLI)

    Ricky Nattiel, nicknamed "Ricky the Rocket," played college football for the University of Florida, and thereafter, he played professionally for the Denver Broncos.

    The Denver Broncos chose Nattiel in the first round (27th overall pick) of the 1987 NFL Draft, and he played for the Broncos in six NFL seasons from 1987 to 1992, including eight playoff games and two Super Bowls. His rookie season, he had 31 receptions for 630 yards, a franchise rookie record of 20.3 yards per catch. His second year, he upped his receptions to 46, and was the Broncos primary punt returner for 972 all purpose yards.

    Nattiel and fellow Broncos wide receivers Vance Johnson and Mark Jackson all played together from 1987 to 1992 and were nicknamed "The Three Amigos." He finished his six-year NFL career with 121 receptions for 1,972 yards and eight touchdowns.

    I was a draft selection by the Denver Broncos.
    I recorded more than 20 interceptions throughout my pro career, however recorded zero touchdowns.

    I also starred in a number of tv shows after my hall of fame (hint) career came to a close.

    Who am I?

    Winner!!!!! Tom Glassic.



    Drafted out of Virginia in the first round of the 1976 draft, as Denver's left guard. A position he would play for the next eight seasons. Glassic played in Super Bowl XII, with the Broncos losing to the Cowboys by a score of 27 - 10. After retiring from football, he found work as a caretaker at Camp Tomahawk, a Girl Scouts ranch.

    I was drafted in the first round, and played my entire career with the Broncos, spanning more than seven seasons. I played in one Super Bowl that we lost. I never scored any touchdowns, but did manage to grab a handful of fumble recoveries. After my football career ended, I worked at a Girl Scouts ranch near my home. Who am I?

    I remember this.

    1988 Super bowl XXII vs the Redskins, John Elway to Ricky Nattiel, Quickest and probably The longest super bowl touchdown pass up to that point.

    On the Broncos opening offensive drive John Elway came out with a boot leg and fires a 56 yard touchdown pass to Ricky Nattiel.

    First drive, one play, touchdown!

    I remember it clearly and from then on out, my father would always say “John Elway is going to come out and scare the hell out of this team with a dagger to the heart”.

    Great Moment!
    WINNER!!! (must spread before I send reward)
