        • I actually thought the pro bowl one was going to be a hard one because it's a bit random. But FL Bronco got it pretty fast.

          I googled 1990 pro bowl and got nothing special or new related other than the rosters, coaches and score.

            FL was on a wave today!!!

            Lum's quiz lasted 4 days or so, and he hits the mark on both. And based on what you said, it makes me feel a wee bit better.....our goal is to be google proof, but it is not easy to know what tidbit will open the door wide open....thx to that internet fad!!!

              I'll admit I didn't try very hard to crack the pro bowl code. But I didn't know what else to try other than 1990 pro bowl.

              On the coaching one all I did was go to the wiki page of all Broncos head coaches (there is a page where all are listed in one list). And then just started clicking on each of them and looking at their resumes.

                I believe you and I use roughly the same approach.....although I am not in that mode while GMan and I coordinate this thread.

                But yes, start with something and sniff it out, one piece at a time.

                  That's how I would have approached it as well.

                  Like the man said, Can and I try to make these Google proof...these aren't the Patriots boards.

                        Al Wilson



                        Smoke Dog was drafted after his final year at Tennessee as the 31st pick in the first round of the 1999 NFL Draft and signed to the Denver Broncos. Wilson became the anchor of the Broncos' defense and earned five Pro Bowl selections. He was one of the fastest middle linebackers in the league and was very good in pass coverage. He passed the 100-tackle mark in five consecutive seasons, including 109 tackles (73 of which were solo) in 2004 to rank second on the Broncos. Wilson led the Broncos in tackles for the second consecutive year in 2003 with 128 tackles.

                        On December 3, 2006, Wilson suffered a neck injury during a fake field goal attempt against the Seattle Seahawks during the Sunday Night Football game. He was carted off the field and immediately taken to a hospital, but was cleared by the Denver Broncos to return the following week to help Denver try to make the playoffs. The Denver Broncos signed many free agents during the 2007 offseason, such as running back Travis Henry and quarterback Patrick Ramsey, resulting in some salary cap trouble. The Broncos attempted to trade Wilson to the New York Giants, but Wilson failed his physical and the trade talks died down.

                        Wilson was released by the Denver Broncos on April 13, 2007, due to injuries and salary cap problems.

                          Random Fact of the Day

                          Who was the first male cheerleader in Denver Broncos history? Robin Williams. At a 1979 home win, the actor showed up in boots and a glittering mini-skirt. With pom-poms waving, Williams rallied 74,000 fans as Mork—his extraterrestrial character on ABC’s popular sitcom Mork & Mindy. Fourteen days later, footage from the stunt appeared in a season two episode.

                          Random Quote of the Day

                          Everyone is a genius at least once a year. The real geniuses simply have their bright ideas closer together.

                              I think people missed this in all of the Free Agency fiasco yesterday.

                              I’m going to go with the Tim Tebow led comeback win against the Dolphins.

                              Where we were down 15-0 in the fourth quarter and had them right where we wanted them. And tied it up and won in OT.


                              I’m also realizing you may be referring to a statistic rather than a game. In which case I have no idea.
