    "The Drive"

    It's been 24 years since Elway led the broncos to a win to take us to playoffs! Just a good drive that showed heart by Elway and the Broncos. Hopefully we see that again soon!

    As you can see from my sig, I remember the drive very well and am looking forward to a bright future with Tebow at the helm of our offense.

    Not trying to be picky, but don't you mean 25 years?

    I had to do the math a little bit, as I can't believe it's been that long already...

    Not only the drive but an even better day in history. I was born on the 11th.

    24 years ago. Hard to believe. The team should really do something special next year to honor the 25th...

    I honestly think it's still the defining moment of Elway's career and the greatest moment in team history... even more so than the SB wins. I may be in the minority there- but IMHO SB's and SB heroes come and go... "The Drive" on the other hand is LEGENDARY and will never be forgotten.

    There's just something about being 98 yards away in the cold mud down 7 on the road with an AFC Championship on the line and with thousands of blood-thirsty hostile fans jeering you and throwing stuff at you that a "corporate clean" Super Bowl atmosphere could never capture. It was an awesome feat...

    ok, NOW you're being picky!! but you're right.... it was 24. I was thinking of the season 86, not the playoff game which took place in 87.

    But I was WAY closer than the OP.... Wish it were only 15 years ago. Damn grey hair on my chin, and I'm still young!

    haha, I know when I watched the highlights I was thinking of how old the unis looked and the video was.

    It's one of my earliest football memories. I was trying to explain it to one of the kids in the breakroom too young to have witnessed it, guess you just had to be there to really understand it's importance.

    Somehow I don't think Elway will be leading a comeback drive any time soon. However, it would be cool if TT did it to the Brownies again.
