    Today's Trivia


    This is a two part question.

    1. When Elway said he would not play for Indy this Super Bowl winning QB said that he (Elway) is not the kind of guy you can win Championships with. Who was this other QB?

    2.Who was the Broncos' GM that worked out the trade that got John Elway?

        • Bradshaw and I'd say it was Edgar Kaiser's relationship with Robert Irsay that was the basis for the Elway trade. If I remember correctly, both the Raiders and the 49ers offered more in trade than the Broncos but Irsay didn't have many friends in the NFL and traded Elway to Kaiser because of it.

          I believe the guy that actually worked out the details of the trade was Hein Poulus, Kaiser's right hand man in business deals.

            It was indeed Terry Bradshaw who said Elway could never lead a team to a Championship. I guess Elway showed him how the boss does things.

            As lvbronx said it could have had something to do with the owners relationships but it was Hein Poulus who was the GM and put it together with the Colts to make it happen. Poulus was an attorney and was Kaiser's right hand man.

            In order to make this trade the Broncos gave up QB Mark Hermann, 1984 First round pick, and offensive lineman Chris Hinton who went on to become a 7 time Pro-Bowler.

            Tell us again how Elway cannot lead you to a Championship.

              In 1995 Rod Smith's first NFL catch was a game winning 43 yard touch down completion. Who did the Broncos beat that day?

                        Rod caught his first pass against the Redskin for the scoring drive in the last minute to win the game for the Broncos.

                        This is his first catch that left the Redskins fans a little upset.

                              Today's Trivia


                              We all remember the "Drive" in Cleveland. Which player (Outside of Elway) had the most yards gained in the "Drive" to tie up the game?

                              Steve Sewell with 36

                              • I'd guess Sewell too...he had that long 3rd down completion over the middle of the field
