On Sunday, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning—barring an unforeseen breakdown—will throw his 400th career touchdown pass in his 209th game. Today, BroncoTalk published our 5,000th post during our sixth year of existence.
BT has come a long way since Kyle “Monty” Montgomery started the blog back in 2006. At the time, Jake Plummer was Denver’s starting quarterback.
Since then, we’ve gone through Jay Cutler, Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow while hosting nearly seven million new and returning readers. Tebow’s arrival on Draft Day 2010 broke our record for most hits in a single day. Two years later, Manning’s Free Agency Tour doubled that record.
The site has rapidly grown over the years, due in part to our evolving comment system and the site becoming mobile-friendly. We do our best to always keep improving the site and a redesign is actually under construction!
This is post No. 5,004; Tim Lynch‘s defensive end preview was the big No. 5,000. Congrats, Tim, here’s betting you didn’t even realize you posted No. 5K.
We want to thank YOU, our readers for helping us get here! If not for you, we wouldn’t be here. Thanks for coming along for the ride. Here’s to 5,000 more posts and beyond—Go Broncos!
