      WINNER!!!

      The Broncos are 1-10 in postseason games played on artificial turf. Their lone win was in the 1997-season AFC Championship Game at Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Stadium.

      • Interesting (to me) that in one of its 3 Super Bowl winning seasons, The Broncos had just 3 of these, the least in its history regarding this resourcing process.

        Name the year and the "process" (as I call it).:thumb:

            Only 3 first round picks on the team?

            Or only 3 players arrested in the off season? j/k

              You are headed in the right direction.....(not sure about the arrest part).

              As an aside, if you can prove that there were only 3 first rounders on the team, and that never happened before or after, you get a prize.

                I want to say 1997 Trevor Pryce, Dan Neil, Cory Gillard.

                One of thee most boring drafts however two of those picks urned out to be fantastic

                  WINNER!!!

                  In 1997, The Denver Broncos went on to win the Super Bowl. But in the preseason draft, The Broncos only selected 3 players, the least in their history.

                  Their draft went like this:

                  Round 1, selection #28 Trevor Pryce DT Clemson
                  Round 3, selection #67 Dan Neil G/C Texas
                  Round 4, selection #124 Cory Gilliard S Ball St.

                  Pryce was selected to The Broncos 50th Anniversary team, while Neil went on to have a good career, but as far as I can tell, Gilliard never played for The Broncos, and only played one NFL game, for The Bengals.

                  • Why is the negative stat -55 a bit ironical given the success of this Bronco?

                      The Broncos gave up 55 points, a Super Bowl record. Had Leon Lett not celebrated too early, the Cowboys would have broke this record and spared us the shame of giving up the most points in a Super Bowl. Later, Lett became a Bronco.

                        Not the answer I am looking for, but complex and creative. He was a Bronco, but for only one season, and not as a starter.

                        But I'm giving points for creativity.:thumb: (need to reload!)

                        OK everyone, keep trying!

                            • It’s either Craig Morton or Peyton Manning. Neither ran very well but Morton played here longer so I’ll say it’s Manning.

                                I'll say it's a WINNER!!!

                                Though Peyton Manning had 4 memorable seasons with The Denver Broncos, including record breaking achievements, his 4 year totals included a combined 17,057 yards, of which -55 of it was yards rushing. In contrast, Elway had 3,407 yards rushing and 51,475 passing for a combined 54,882 yards. Lets just say John was a better runner.

                                Regardless, I think we can forgive Manning for that!:thumb:
