                      I "believe" Charley Johnson was the only person to be an active NFL player and have a PHD? Has there been anyone since?

                      Tripuka was before my time, so Charley was the first good Bronco QB I watched and was the QB at the tipping point of when the Broncos went from laughing stock to perennial winners.

                      • Charley was also in the military and attended night school, I believe

                            That is pretty incredible. What is equally incredible? Since Manning got here we lost one single game in our division.

                              I knew it seemed like there wasn't as much Charger fans venturing outside of the smalk talk forum lately. And even less in there.

                              That stat tells you why. It's great dominating the west like this. Just wish we could close the deal one of these days.
