Denver Broncos blog, news and rumors

The funny thing about this review is that I’ll be using the same photo from the offensive list. Super Bowl XXXII was simply an incredible moment in Denver Broncos history, especially for us fans. It wasn’t just a 38 year wait, but four Super Bowl losses – each more embarrassing than the previous. A view [...]

Out of the many plays I’ve profiled so far, you’ve heard names like John Elway, Champ Bailey, or Steve Atwater, but here is one you probably won’t recognize – Jeremiah Castille. Castille’s heads up individual effort would end up part of NFL lore and drive the Denver Broncos into their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance. [...]

2005 was a magical season for the Denver Broncos.  It was a perfect storm of desire and talent, along with a little luck, that launched the Broncos to a 13-3 record and a home Divisional Playoff game against the perennial Super Bowl favorite New England Patriots. Most of us remember the play and the mind-losing [...]

Once again we return to the early 1990′s for another huge moment in my adolescent fanhood of the Denver Broncos.  This one came in the regular season and helped ensure I would idolize Steve Atwater for the rest of his career. Naturally, we are talking about Atwater blowing up Kansas City Chiefs fullback, Christian “The Nigerian [...]

As I sorted out my top Denver Broncos defensive plays it was rather easy at first, until I got to the fifth and final spot. My efforts were severely hampered by a lack of video of some of the plays I had on my short list.  I figured, heck with it, I’ll just pick my [...]

In the eyes of most Denver Broncos fans, John Elway and his helicopter leap in Super Bowl XXXII is the greatest offensive play in Broncos history.  The significance of that play is lost when the backdrop of 38 years of Broncos football up until that point. From averaging less than four wins per season throughout [...]

The greatest sports moment of my life occurred on my oldest daughters birthday – January 25th. She wasn’t born yet, but the year was 1998 and the Denver Broncos were in the fight of their lives against the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXII. I was 19 years old and living a stones throw [...]

The early 1990′s was a very impressionable time in my youth. In fact, the most memorable game of my life, excluding the Super Bowl victories, was the 1991 AFC Divisional Playoffs. The Denver Broncos needed a John Elway miracle to achieve victory over the Houston Oilers and was I not disappointed! This play may rank [...]

It is nice to have a couple plays in my top 5 that are still fresh in our recent memories.  Tim Tebow may no longer be on the Denver Broncos roster, but there is little doubt in my mind that his pass to Demaryius Thomas in overtime back in January sent all of us screaming [...]

Topping my list at number four, is the Immaculate Deflection.  In a hard fought, defensive struggle that the Denver Broncos pretty much controlled until the final Cincinnati Bengals drive of the game, it took a miracle for the Broncos to come out on top 12-7. The victory would catapult a poorly coached team to a [...]
