    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!

    Sorry. Actually Jackson did not reach 100 TDs. Try again!

    Thx!

    Well he did make a lot of pro bowls and he did start with the Broncos...

    But SS was not a WR for the Broncos..

    MY MAN LUM GREAT JOB!!!!





    In his nine NFL seasons, Upchurch excelled as a receiver and a kick returner on special teams. In his rookie season, he rushed for 97 yards, caught 18 passes for 436 yards, returned 27 punts for 312 yards, and added another 1,014 yards returning kickoffs. In his second season, he set an NFL record by returning four punts for touchdowns and made the Pro Bowl. In the 1977 season, he led the NFL with 653 punt return yards and assisted his team to their first ever Super Bowl appearance. The Broncos lost Super Bowl XII to the Dallas Cowboys 27-10, but he had a good performance in the game. Upchurch amassed 125 total offensive yards (94 kickoff return, 22 punt return, 9 receiving), including a Super Bowl record 67-yard kickoff return in the 3rd quarter that set up Denver's only touchdown of the game.

    Upchurch stayed with the Broncos until the 1983 season. He led the NFL in punt return average twice (1978 and 1982), and was selected to the Pro Bowl three more times (1978, 1979, 1982). He finished his nine-season career with 49 carries for 349 rushing yards, 267 receptions for 4,369 yards, 248 punt returns for 3,008 yards, and 95 kickoff returns for 2,355 yards. Overall, Upchurch gained 10,081 total yards and scored 35 touchdowns: eight returning punts, 24 receiving, and three rushing. He was also selected All-Pro five times. At the time of his retirement, he was the NFL's career leader in punt return yards, and his eight punt returns for touchdowns tied the NFL record shared by Jack Christiansen. He is one of five players to record a career average of over 12 yards per punt return.

    Good guess but as you already pointed out, he did not start his career here.

    Sutton, yeAr 2


    Sutton had a breakout season in 2019, catching 72 passes for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns. As a second-year player, Sutton is the fastest receiver in franchise history to reach the Pro Bowl, topping stars including Demaryius Thomas (third season) and Brandon Marshall (third season).

    Who am I ?
    Rick Upchurch?

    Maybe Riley Odoms, a Bronco from the start, who made it to the pro bowl in year 2, way back in the early 70s....
