    Miami Dolphins when Denver won in a rout 38-3

    Well Done. Terrell was a mad man that day!! 199 yards on 21 carries gives him almost a 9-1/2 yards (9.476) average per carry. Unstoppable!


    [SIGH] ...Those were the days, weren't they?


    Don't anybody mistake me for a Madden nut, but I would love to build a time machine and see a matchup between our '98 and any or all of: Peytato Head Manning and the Colts; Kurt Warner and the Greatest Show on Turf; or Montana's 9ers.

    Talk about some heavyweight fights!

    They're your teammates, now.
    Best of luck, TT!
    ...Always a class act - in any uniform.



    sbutk: i can see why Denver is taking TO's right now [trailing by 7, with 30 seconds left in the half]. but why Oakland???

    Captain Lori: You are trying to figure out the Raiders. Try figuring out women instead; it's probably much easier.

        Your answer antiwup is #80 Mark Jackson.


        Good Morning Everyone! Just got my morning coffee.

        It is Tuesday May 8th the 128th day of the year with 237 to go.

        124 days until the regular season opener at Buffalo.

        Todays Fun Fact:

        The Broncos' season-opening, 13-10 victory over Boston in 1960 came on a Friday night, making it the first official regular-season game in AFL history.


        To see pictures of that night, and how small Old Mile High Stadium was, is amazing (back then it was called Bear's stadium).

            Sorry my friend. It alternates every other day from fun fact to trivia.

            So here is a question regarding that game: Who was the Quarterback in that game for the Broncos?

                Years with Broncos: 1960-63

                Then: Frank Tripucka is also one of the original Broncos, playing for the team from 1960-63. Tripucka led the Broncos to their first ever .500 season in 1962 (7-7). He formed half of the Tripucka-to-Lionel Taylor passing combination, as the duo (both Ring of Famers) went on to set various marks together. Tripucka's best statistical season came in 1960 when he completed 248 of 478 passes (51.9%) for 3,038 yards and 24 touchdowns. His 447 yards passing against Buffalo (9/15/62) still stands as the team record, and he shares the team record for most touchdown passes in a game with five (10/28/62 vs. Buffalo). Tripucka also played in the AFL All-Star Game in 1962.

                Now: Tripucka is a retired beer distributor. He currently resides in New Jersey.

                      Happy Hump Day! :wave:

                      Interesting note you made antiwup regarding that passing record. I don't honestly recall Jake throwing for that many yards.

                      Today is Wednesday May 9th, the 129th day of the year with 236 days to go.

                      123 days until the opener in Buffalo.

                      Here is your question for today:

                      John Elway's 4,964 career passing yards in the postseason are the most in Broncos' history. Who is a distant second (entering 2005) at 605 yards?

                        The answer kinda surprised me a little bit.


                        Think back in time rather than more recent which is what I originally was thinking.

                            I was thinking Plummer or Griese but nope......

                            Craig Morton (1977-1982)

                            The key was "entering 2005". Jake Plummer threw for 885 yards in postseason, but he moved ahead of Craig Morton after the 2005 season. That was a tricky question. But hey.... I don't think these things up.

                            This link provides a very interesting look at the QB passing stats in postseason:

                            http://www.denverbroncos.com/page.php?id=219

                            Thinking back to the first ever playoff game for Denver, it was at Mile High Stadium against the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 24th, 1977. This was an AFC Divisional game against the AFC Central Champs. Craig's opposing counterpart was none other than that character in the booth these days, Terry Bradshaw.

                              Good Morning E1! :wave:

                              Today is Thursday May 10th the 130th day of the year with 235 to go.

                              122 days to go until we head to Buffalo.

                              Still trying to figure out how many days until JWinn goes to Hawaii.

                              Today's Fun Fact:

                              The Broncos beat the Giants 31-20 on a Monday Night on Kickoff Weekend in 2001 in the first gave ever at INVESCO Field at Mile High.


                              That was the game Eddie Mac broke his leg.

                                I remember harrassing my buddy who is a Giants fan right after that happened. I was using words that aren't allowed on these message boards.

                                It was obviously an unintentional injury but since he likes the NY Giants I had to give him the 'ol one two about that!!
