In '77 Joe Collier fielded his 34 D with Rubin Carter, Barney Chavous and Lyle Alzado on the D-Line; Randy Gradishar, Tom Jackson, Bob Swenson and Joe Rizzo at the Backers; and, Louis Wright, Steve Foley, Billy Thompson and Bernard Jackson in the Secondary. That was a great D.

    For a season the Broncos D held hands in the D huddle to show togetherness. What player is credited with starting this?

    That;s correct. That was kind of the birth of the Orange Crush.

    For those that don't know...May was a respected LB/leader that came to a young Bronco team that had never done anything and brought them together and gave them confidence. Plus "Ray May" is one of the greatest names ever.

    In the 70's the Broncos were closing in on doing something they had never done before, clinch a playoff birth if they won a certain game but they lost, big time. What Broncos quarterback did some of the players want to "punch in the face" as he came off the field laughing after throwing an interception in that game?

    Bonus points if you can name the exact game!

    Wasn't it Denver at New England 28 November 1976? Broncos lost 38-14. Steve Ramsey threw three picks. Denver finished second in AFCW at 9-5 and Pats finished 11-3 as the WC team in the AFC. If Denver had won that game, they would have been in the playoffs instead of NE.

    Exactly correct! They went into New England with high hopes and laid a horrendous egg, got blown out. In Alzado's book he said that several of the players wanted to punch Ramsey in the face because he came off the field laughing after he threw an interception. Lyle was out with a broken leg otherwise he probably would've done it! And of course we know the next season Ramsey and Ralston were gone and we had Red Miller who was standing on the Patriots sideline for the game we just talked about!

    LOL at Steve Ramsey...he'd have to put some "air" on 10 yard passes just to get the ball there. He is probably my least favorite Bronco QB of all time.

    Plus Daisy had a better arm than Steve Ramsey.

    He set all kinds of passing records in college, but had more than enough opportunities to become the starting quarterback after Charley Johnson retired but just couldn't do it. Strange how some guys tear it up in college but are so so in the pros.
