    John Elway said this was his favorite "honor" in his football career. Hint: It isn't an official honor from the NFL.

    We have "Winner". Congrats 58Miller....

    I found this question in my 1985 "Pro Football Challenge Trivia - Denver Edition" game. It has 400 cards with 6 questions on each card with the following categories:

    Elway Years
    NFL Years
    AFL Years Card, 365 Answer: Held a special "equalization" draft. (No mention of who for).
    Records
    Opponents

    My first guess was Kyousukeneko's guess so I'm going with the Denver Broncos trading for him from the Baltimore Colts for the Broncos 1st round pick, Chris Hinton.

    Good guesses but neither are correct.

    In 1993, Howie Long played his last regular season game of his career against the Broncos and gave his game helmet to Elway, telling Elway that he was the toughest player he ever played against. Elway said this was his favorite "honor" he was ever given.

    We have a winner! Check's in the email.

    The local Bronco TV show is running old Bronco news reels and today they aired highlights of the 73 season and Gene Washington had a play or two which made me think of this question.

    It was kind of like Brandon Marshall/Brandon Marshall but the two Gene's played the same position.

    I think I have this correct...what Bronco set the NFL record for most total all-purpose yards for their very first game? I'm guessing it may have been broken since.
