    Random fact of the day

    The first quarterback to have a 3,000 yard passing season for the Denver Broncos was Frank Tripucka in the franchise’s first year in the pro football, 1960. It wouldn’t happen again for 21 years when Craig Morton passed the mark in 1981. These would be the only 3,000 yard seasons either Tripucka or Morton would ever have for the team.

    Random quote of the day

        WINNER!!! (DB....is this getting too easy now?! CPs to follow)

        In 1983, the Denver Broncos drafted Karl Mecklenburg in the 12th round with the 310th pick overall. He was also selected by the Chicago Blitz in the 21st round of the USFL Draft. In spite of his low selections, Mecklenburg went on to become an integral part of the Broncos' Super Bowl teams of the 1980s. He played in six Pro Bowls. His 79.5 sacks is the second highest total in franchise history; he is one of only three Broncos with four sacks in a game, and the only one to do so twice. In 2001, during half time of a game against the Baltimore Ravens, he and Dennis Smith were inducted into the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame. He is also in the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame and serves on the Broncos Alumni Council.

            I get it. If we are big fans of certain players, or teams, we tend to know more of the details. Good on you!:thumb:

            Think I'll throw in another question shortly, just for fun.

                    Not quite. Seattle beat us by 35, but the Bears beat the Pats by 36 pts in SBXX.

                    And Dallas beat Buffalo by 35 pts in SBXXVII.

                      April 10, 1966 - Former Broncos Defensive End Neil Smith was born. (running low on April dates!). This 6 time Pro Bowler, 2 time SB Champ with The Broncos was so impactful they even named a rule after him....in 1998 The Neil Smith rule was enacted, to prevent a defensive lineman from flinching to induce a false start on the offence.

                              I would assume it would have to be a division rival so I'm just going to guess 1 of the 3 and if I'm wrong someone else can take a stab.

                              San Diego?
