Two SB appearances and a win, in such a short time of period. One era, not just because of Manning, that I will never forget! Lets just say it had a lot to do with Elway and those who believed in the plan!
    Yeah, those were good years! To go from record breaking offense to historical defense and Super Bowl championship in a span of two years...that's a masterstroke of GM'ing if ever there was one. Hopefully, Elway can turn things around next year.

    Insanely freaky good. Love watching 2015 highlights!

    The Packers finished 4th that year, behind us, Detroit and Seattle.

    The Broncos have led the league 3 times in Total Offense - 1996, 1997 and 2013. Lets compare the numbers (yards per game):

    2013 - 457.3 (a whopping 40.1 more than 2nd place Philly)
    1997 - 367.0
    1996 - 361.9

    Quite a difference in 2013! Throughout that regular season, numerous individual, league and franchise records were set, including Peyton Manning setting new NFL records for passing touchdowns and passing yardage, as well as the team setting new NFL records for touchdowns and points scored in a single season.

    WINNER!

    The Broncos have only lead the NFL in Total Defense once in their history, in 2015. During that memorable season, The D only allowed 283.1 yards per game. Included on that total was a league leading 199.6 yards per game against the pass, and #3 against the run, with only 83.6 yards per game.

    Of course that was also the season that The Broncos won their 3rd Super Bowl, which was highly related to their incredible Defense, lead by Von Miller!

    Today’s trivia...........

    Random fact of the day​​​​

    The Denver rushing game produced more 100-yard rushers in the 1990s as the franchise had in the previous three decades combined. In fact, one rusher -- Terrell Davis -- exploded onto the scene and logged over three times as many 100-yard games as the entire franchise did in the 1960s. He had almost 50% more 100-yard games than the entire franchise in the 1970s. Davis more than doubled the number of 100-yard rushers than the entire franchise produced in the 1980s.

    Random quote of the day

    “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

    ― Albert Einstein

    This month in Broncos history ​​

    December 14, 1975 - The Franchise retires - Floyd Little is carried off the field after he concludes his career as the seventh-leading all-time rusher in the NFL with 6,323 career rushing yards.

    December 4, 1977 - With a 24-14 win at Houston, the Broncos clinch a playoff berth, the first in the club’s history. Later in the day, the Broncos clinch the AFC Western Division championship when the Raiders fall to the Los Angeles Rams.

    December 11, 1983 - Elway throws three fourth-quarter touchdown passes to erase a 19-0 deficit and lead the Broncos to a 21-19 playoff-clinching win over Baltimore.

    December 15, 1984 - In a winner-take-all showdown at the Kingdome for the AFC West crown, Denver wins its 13th game of the season, the most in Broncos history, and captures the AFC West crown with a 31-14 win over Seattle.

    December 26, 1996 - Terrell Davis is named NFL Offensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press and joins three other Broncos as first-team All-Pro performers — Shannon Sharpe, Alfred Williams and Gary Zimmerman.

    December 3, 2000 - Mike Anderson rushes for 251 yards in a 38-23 win at New Orleans to set an all-time NFL rookie rushing record for a single game.

    December 11, 2005 - Mike Shanahan becomes the Broncos’ all-time leader in career victories, collecting his 118th career win with Denver’s 12-10 win against Baltimore at INVESCO Field at Mile High. Champ Bailey records an interception for the fifth consecutive game, setting a franchise record.

    December 24, 2006 - Cutler becomes the first rookie in NFL history to throw multiple touchdown passes in each of his first four games.

    December 12, 2014 - Chris Harris Jr. agrees to terms on a five-year contract extension. Harris had overcome being undrafted and tearing an ACL in the 2013 postseason to become one of the game’s best cornerbacks. He goes to his first Pro Bowl one month later.



    December 14, 2014 - Denver earns a 22-10 victory against San Diego to earn its fourth consecutive AFC West Division title. The game marks the Broncos’ 12th straight divisional road win to tie for the longest such streak in league history.

    On the show, Archie rented a big screen TV at his bar 'Archie's Place" and sold ham sandwiches for $1.50. After the game, two crooks robbed the patrons.

    We also got robbed....of a victory!!
