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

      Billy Van Heusen was the player I was looking for. He was listed as a WR and Punter. Not sure how he got his rushing stats unless they were from doing WR reverses. In the 109 games as the punter he had 574 punts for 23936 yards with only 4 getting blocked. His longest punt was a 78 yarder which is 2nd longest in Bronco history.

      His family is the same family that owns Van Heusen shirts.

        Bob Scarpitto was pretty good, too.

                    • WOW, two of you at the same time. I guess we have our first tie of the trivia board.

                      I guess we know who has a faster internet connection.

                      I gave both of you credit and CP's

                      Neil Smith is the defensive end that romped 79 yards for a touch down in the 1998 playoffs against the Dolphins.

                        Brings back great memories - how sweet it was to get Neil Smith from KC to finish his career on top with the Broncos!!!

                          No one was happier than Elway.

                          That was about the same time they came out with this jewel

                            Actually, Smith finished his career as a Charger.
