    I'll admit I thought it was Shannon Sharpe, who turns out he had 87 catches in 1994 which was the 2nd highest behind Lionel Taylor in 61. So only saw it when I was double checking myself on Sharpe love having the trivia game back

    This record was held by Taylor from 1961 until 2000. 39 years until both Rod Smith (100) and Ed McCaffrey (101) reached 100 receptions. In 2001 Rod Smith reached 113 receptions.

    As Sam said this was quite the achievement back when most teams ran the ball much more than they do today and they had 2 games less to try and reach 100 receptions. Both Smith and McCaffrey did it in 16 games while Taylor did it in 14 games.

    Mike Harden was the first Bronco player to return 4 interceptions for TD in his career.



    Mike was partially responsible for the rivalry we had with the Seattle Seahawks. Harden crushed Steve Largent with a hit to the head and gave him a concussion and knocked out two teeth.

    Then Steve Largent hit Harden on a, interception return and knock him for a loop. When the Seahawks were in our division they were always a tough game.
