It's the bye week so I thought I'd share some more old time Bronco video highlights.
<br />
The Broncos amazing comeback against the Chargers Monday night reminded me of another time they came back from 24 points down in the second half to win.<br />
<br />
September 23, 1979.&nbsp; I was in the South Stands watching the action.&nbsp; Broncos quarterback Norris Weese was ineffective, and the team trailed 34-10 with 7 minutes to go in the 3rd quarter.&nbsp; In comes the veteran Craig Morton.&nbsp; I'll let the video I put together from old game highlights tell the story ...<br />

I thought of this game also. Morton's greatest comeback. He came in and chucked it deep to Moses and Upchurch. Morton had a gun.

I don't have complete games but I have some highlight tapes I made in the late 70's, 80's. Here are some I've posted in the past:

Elway's first year:

Larry Canada, he was not very memorable other than his name.

Larry Canada wound up playing for the Denver Gold in the USFL as one of the few 'name' players the team had.

That was a strange year. Red Miller could never figure out who to play on offense the entire year.
