    Random Bronco thoughts, memories, plays and players...

    What are some of the things Bronco related that are interesting but you don't feel need an entire thread for them?

    I think it was against KC in the Orange Crush season there was a famous goal line stand...but the play before it was amazing. It was on either a punt or KO coverage and Louis Wright chased down the returner. Louis literally split two escort blockers and grabbed the returner one-handed by the ankle, downing him at the one yard line. The famous (and important) goal line stand followed.

    And another. Trevor Pryce has to be one of a handful of the most underrated Broncos ever. We don't give him enough credit.

    Christmas came early, one of my longtime customers came in this morning and gave me five album pages of old Broncos player cards.

    Rod Bernstine, Anthony Miller, Mike Pritchard, Karl M, Elway, Sharpe, Reggie Johnson, Jason E., Keith Kartz, Dennis Smith, Simon Fletcher, Derek Russel, Zimmerman, Atwater, Glyn Milburn, Leonard Russel, Rod Smith...

    Gonna have my daughter do a collage...

    I wish I could remember the year but there was a primetime (MNF?) game vs the chiefs where the color guy just started laughing every time Pryce made a play. He only had 2 sacks that game but was unstoppable. Every snap he was making the QB and RB have to make some major moves in the backfield and run for their life. Still the most dominating single game I've seen a D player have since LT and that includes SB 50..

    When Shannon Sharpe trash talked Derrick Thomas into getting suspended by his own team

    I believe I remember Rick Upchurch returning 2 punts for TDs vs the Browns without being touched.

    Good thread idea, and for me it's the play that changed an entire season. In 2005 the Broncos came out and were embarrassed in Miami to start the season. In week 2 they had their home opener and looked dreadful in the first half trailing the Chargers 14-3 at the half with San Diego getting the ball to start the second half. I can't remember which play (I want to say it was the first non-kickoff play of the half) Brees went to throw a back shoulder pass along the sidelines, at that point Champ Bailey read the play came flying up and went pick six. From that point on Denver turned the game around, and went on to go 13-3 that season.

    One play, completely changed the season.

    Loved the way Dave Magazu used influence in his O-Line blocking scheme in 2011.

    In 2015 I went to the Broncos vs Bengals games. Where miller had a last minute strip sack to seal the game. The atmosphere leaving the stadium was super hype.

    CJ Anderson vs the Patriots in that 2015 run. Specifically him running around the edge to seal that game. I've never been so pumped.

    The entire 2011 season. I really enjoyed 104.3 the fan's coverage of the Tebow season last weekend. Klis said that for him, in all his years of covering the Broncos (even the SB seasons), that it was one of the most fun and memorable seasons. I 100% agree with him. That season was also what propelled me into becoming more of a hardcore Broncos fan. I barely followed them before that.

    Correct me if I’m wrong (I missed most of that season due to Katrina) but Champ was playing with a separated shoulder he suffered against Miami was he not?

    Broncos need a first down to run the clock out and go to the Super Bowl. In the huddle Elway draws up a play in the ground to Shannon Sharpe. Pass complete. A few plays and time outs later Broncos to Super Bowl. Later win the first Super Bowl in franchise history.

    When Shannon Sharpe first came in the league and finally got on the field, Elway would motion him and let him know what to do as he passed by him.

    Tackling Ronnie Brown. He had that black sling/brace thing he played with. I think he played with a ruptured hamstring that year too. If I remember right, he aggravated it against Philadelphia, and that was when TO made that huge run after the catch.

    Speaking of which. AFCC, when Roethlisberger threw an out breaking route on I think Pittsburgh's first drive, and Champ jumped it so hard the ball bounced off of him incomplete. Who knows how that game goes if Champ secures that INT, because it was definitely going the other way for a score.

    Yeah I remember that championship game, had to watch it through the static. I still think if he catches that we end up winning that game and ultimately the Super Bowl. That set the tone and we couldn’t get it out of our heads but if he caught it Ben would’ve been rattled given his inexperience at the time then it would’ve came down to stopping Bettis but really Willie Parker.
