          I had to do one on Bucky Dilts just because of his name. He only played for the Broncos for 2 seasons and I guess he was an average punter or he would have been with the team longer. However he did have a 73 yard punt which is pretty impressive no mater how far it rolled.

                Sammy Winder played for the Broncos for 9 seasons and went to two Pro Bowls. His TD celebrations were a thing of beauty and know as the "Mississippi Mud Walk".

                      Bill Thompson played for the broncos for 13 seasons. He play 4 different positions including Punt Returner, Kick off Returner, DB, and Safety. His is another one of the Broncos who should be in the Hall of Fame but has been looked over because some of the teams he played on weren't very good.

                          Today's Trivia


                          In 1985 the Broncos played the 49ers and something happened during the game that this game would always be remembered for in history. What was this "Thing" that happened?

                            On Nov. 11, 1985 the Broncos played the 49ers in Mile High Stadium and just before half time the 49ers drove the ball to attempt a 19 yard FG. Just before the snap a fan threw a snowball and it landed just in front of the placeholder and he ended up bobbling the ball and he had to try and pass the ball. Fortunately for the Broncos it fell harmlessly in the endzone.

                            The Broncos ended up winning that game 17-16.

                            Here is a video. It is shown about the 4:10 mark.

                              An interesting follow up note. I attended the next Bronco - 49er regular season game at Candlestick Park on 10/9/88. I was on the goal line about 40 rows up and heard several 9er fans saying they brought golf balls and oranges to throw at Karlis in retaliation for the Mile High snowball. With the score tied and seconds left in Q4, Karlis lined up to kick the game winning FG (about a 20 yarder) right in front of the goal line I was sitting at...I didn't see anyone throw anything at him but he missed anyway. In OT, the 9ers got the ball 1st and Steve Young promptly threw an INT (to Steve Wilson I believe) setting up the Broncos around the 9ers 10. Karlis came out again and this time nailed it for a Broncos OT win and the greatest game I ever saw in person
