    I object to your example as it holds no relative comparison because you never played for the Broncos and we are obviously talking about Broncos players. The accepted and understood examples are as follows, one is a single, or one year, two would be a couple of years, three would be a few years, while anything over four is understood as many years.

    Therefore Talib would not meet the criteria. He has only been with the Broncos for a couple of years, and he has only been to a few Pro Bowls.

    Whereas, Louis Wright played for many years, 12 to be exact, and he went to many Pro Bowls, 5 to be exact.

    I rest my case

        I was drafted by the Broncos in the 3rd round. I played for the Broncos for 3 years. before being traded. I played for two more teams before injuries caused me to retire. I then went to work for the NFLPA and then switched to the NBAPA. While making the switch from the NFL & NBA job I studied for my MBA at Harvard Business School. Who Am I?

              Close but McGriff was released by the Broncos and not traded. He also never went to Harvard Business School. He also never worked for the NFLPA or the NBAPA. Sorry.

              Lumiere is Trivia King For The Day!!!!!:clap:

              Domonque Foxworth was drafted in the third round and played for Denver for three years. He was traded to Atlanta when he got hurt. He was not signed so Baltimore signed him to a 4 year contract and he ended up getting hurt again so he retired.

              He worked for the NFLPA and I believe he is still working for the NBAPA.

                  I wouldn't be able to keep up with the way the CP system works so it is wise to spread them out. I should be able to give you a CP tomorrow to catch up on the last one.

                        One of our all time fan favorite LBs that used to crush people. He was drafted 31st overall and went to 5 Pro Bowls. He played 8 seasons with the Broncos before he hurt his neck. He was released by the Broncos and tried with another team but just couldn't go with the neck injury so he retired.

                        It is a shame that it happened like this because it really caused some bad feelings for Wilson.

                          From what I have pieced together, the feelings are justified.

                            It's cruel fate and the same could be said for Terrell Davis as well.

                            Both of these men would have been considered in the top 5 of their positions all time had their careers hadn't had been cut short!

                              There aren't any bad feelings between the Broncos and TD, though. The team stuck with him for four more years after the knee injury, hoping he would make a comeback. When he finally retired it seemed like it was a mutual decision between Terrell and the Broncos.

                                I was drafted by the Chargers but only played two seasons. I played with the Broncos for 6 seasons and in one of those seasons I was selected as a All Star. Who Am I?
