          Billy Thompson ~



          Billy Thompson, regarded by many as one of the best defensive backs in Denver Broncos history, was the only Ring of Fame inductee in 1987.

          He was the first player in team history to play 13 seasons with Denver, and he was the team's defensive captain for many years. He is currently third on the Broncos all-time list for games started with 179, tenth in games played with 179, and holds the club record for interception return yards at 784.
          As a rookie in 1969, he was the first player in professional football history to lead the league in both kickoff (28.5 yard) and punt (11.5 yard) return averages.

          He finished his career with 61 turnovers, 40 of which came via interceptions.

          "BT" was a three-time Pro Bowl selection (1977, 1978 & 1981) and earned All-NFL honors twice (1977-'78) and All-AFC honors four times (1977-'79, '81).

                      WINNER!!!

                      While Fisher coached the Tennessee Titans, Mike Shanahan conferred with his trusted friend and colleague, who had the opportunity to follow Cutler's career at Vanderbilt.



                      Jay Cutler was selected by the Denver Broncos in the first round with the 11th pick in the 2006 draft, acquired from the St. Louis Rams for their 1st and 3rd round picks. Many believed Cutler was chosen by the Broncos due to the lackluster performance in the previous season's AFC Championship Game of Jake Plummer. After the pick by Denver, Cutler said, "We had no warning. I think I knew about 15 seconds before everyone else did."

                          What does that have to do with Shanahan asking Fisher his thoughts on Cutler?

                              I played for 2 NFL teams before The Broncos. Was a pro bowler. Went on to become the professor and head of the chemical engineering department at New Mexico State. Who am I?
