          Yes. Former Dallas Safety, Charlie Waters, was DC under Wade Phillips in 1993 and '94.

                    Trivia King For The Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    Apparently the NFL thought it was a bad idea for players to pull their opponent's helmet off and throw it at them. The NFL came up with the rule that you could not use your gear as a weapon. We can thank Lyle for this rule of not being able to throw your helmet.

                    When the Broncos' starting right defensive end was injured in 1971, Alzado took over the job and went on to make various All-rookie teams for his contributions of 60 tackles and 8 sacks. The following year, Alzado began to get national attention as he racked up 10½ sacks to go with his 91 tackles. In 1973, Alzado posted excellent numbers as the Broncos had a winning record for the first time in team history with a 7–5–2 mark.

                    In 1974, Alzado gained more notice as one publication named him All-AFC, with his 13 sacks and 80 tackles (eight for a loss) he was being recognized with the NFL's top defensive ends, such as Elvin Bethea, Jack Youngblood, L. C. Greenwood, Claude Humphrey, and Carl Eller. The Denver Broncos posted their second consecutive winning season, going 7–6–1.

                    The 1975 season brought change, as Alzado moved to defensive tackle. He responded with 91 tackles and 7 sacks. Alzado took a step backward as did the Broncos with a 6–8 record. On the first play of the 1976 season, Alzado blew out a knee and missed that campaign. The Broncos were 9–5 but SPORT magazine reported that 12 players, including Alzado, did not think the team could reach the playoffs with coach John Ralston. Ralston was replaced as coach by Red Miller for the 1977 season.

                    The 1977 season was the most successful in franchise history to that point; the Broncos had one of the NFL's best defenses, went 12–2 and then beat Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders, the team with which he would later star, in the playoffs to reach Super Bowl XII. In that game, played in New Orleans, they were beaten soundly 27–10 by the Dallas Cowboys. Still, the year was a big success for Alzado, who was voted consensus All-Pro and consensus All-AFC as well as winning the UPI AFC Defensive Player of the Year. He also led the Broncos in sacks with 8, while making 80 tackles.[1]

                    In 1978, the Broncos again went to the AFC playoffs, but lost the rematch in the first round to the eventual champions Steelers. Alzado had 77 tackles and 9 sacks and recorded his first NFL safety. (Alzado would record two more in his career, which ties him in second place all-time). He was 2nd team All-Pro and a consensus All-AFC pick. In 1979 he had a contract dispute, and the Broncos traded him to the Cleveland Browns.

                    Alzado putting the hurt on Stabler the Raider's QB.

                            While Brian Dawkins only played with the Broncos for 3 seasons this guy played his heart out and was the leader on the defense. He sacrificed his body to make plays and they were usually spectacular.







                            He was a great leader on and off the field.

                              Today's Trivia Question:

                              I went to high school at the same school as Brandon Marshall. I played for 15 seasons and am a 4 time pro bowler.

                              Who am I?
