    After finishing just 7-7 in 1962, the Broncos were looking to fill a need for a strong running back when they used their 11th round pick in the 1963 AFL Draft on a 6’2″, 235-lb. running back from Villanova named Billy Joe.

    Billy Joe and veteran receiver, Lionel Taylor, were the Broncos main offensive weapons in 1963. From the Broncos backfield, Joe had 646 yards on 154 carries for a 4.2 average, and four rushing touchdowns. He also had 15 receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown catch. At the end of the season, Joe edged out the Chargers defensive back, Dick Westmoreland, as the AFL Rookie of the Year.

    Despite the addition of Billy Joe to their offense, the Broncos put together a dismal 2-11-1 record in 1963. Joe’s second season in Denver ended with an identical 2-11-1 record, and in early 1965 he was traded to the Buffalo Bills for enigmatic running back, Cookie Gilchrist.

    If I’m not mistaken, one of those final 10 games was actually a tie. Still, a pretty miserable record.

                    Random Quote of the Day

                    Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for – in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

                    Today’s trivia

                    When rookie RB Terrell Davis got injured, the result was a record breaking performance. What happened?

                    Comment


                    • Davis finished his season with a total of 1,117 rushing yards, becoming the lowest drafted player to ever gain over 1,000 yards rushing in his rookie season.

                      Doesn’t fit the question exactly... but it is a record.

                            Small clue.......nothing to do with TD, other than he missed some game action, which was a factor in the record that I am asking about.
