View Full Version : So, The Decade Is Ending & Top 10 Lists Are All The Rage... Re: Broncos Top 10 Plays

Everywhere you turn, somebody is doing a Top-10 list. Plays, Players, Teams, etc. So let's do one for our beloved Broncos.

Criteria, I think: have to be a big play and/or be a very important play.

The problem, of course, is that the news outlets have endless supply of film in their archives to look back on, etc. We have our memories. Which will lead us to generally think of more current things than plays that happened in 2001, for instance.

Anyways, throw out some plays you remember, and perhaps we can get a top 10 list going.

Here's what immediately came to mind:
1) Stokely's 87 yard GW TD. Obviously.
2) Champ Bailey INT-TD of Drew Brees. As you might recall, the Broncos had played a terrible first half, and were facing starting the season 0-2 or 0-3. Enter Champ, jumping a route, taking it to the house, and leading the comeback. I think this is the year we went 13-3.
3) More Champ: The interception of Tom Brady in the playoffs and subsequent 99-yard return to our 1 yard line on the other end of the field.

Now your turn. Throw out some thoughts!

Some more in no particular order:

*Dante Hall hit by Lynch
*Brandon Marshall TD vs. Cowboys
*TORO! TORO!
*Cutler to Walker bomb (awesome play, hmmph)
*Portis 5 TDs vs. Chiefs (pick one)
*Mike Anderson 80 yard TD run
*Rod Smith punt return TD (b/c it was rare)

Not really a single play, but Portis scoring 5 TD's back in '03 was pretty amazing.

3. Bailey's INT of Brady in the playoffs
4. Portis's 5 TD'S
5. Marshall's 21 catch performance
6. Al Wilson's bombshell hit on the Raider running back in the snow
7. Lynch laying wood on Hall
8. Plummer's long pass to Lelie vs Cleveland when the game looked lost
9. Cutler's TD pass to Walker vs Arizona
10. Cutler's TD pass to Royal vs Cleveland

1. Elway is the 1st Bronco inducted into the Pro Football HOF. Nuff said.

2. Champ's pick & return vs. the Pats. I've never heard a stadium roar like Mile High did on that play.

3. Rod Smith chasing down Peppers. Rod Smith = All heart.

4. McDaniels pumping his fist after beating the Patriots. If you are curious aboout how much winning means to our new coach, watch his emotion on the field.

5. Stokley's Immaculate Deflection. Before that play, you all knew the game was lost!

6. Portis breaks out the championship belt. The scene with CP & Sharpe on the sidelines was epic!

7. Last second, game winning FG in Buffalo. Toro, Toro!!

8. Sarge runs wild on the Saints. Sets the rookie record for yards in a game.

9. Lynch lights up the Human Pinball Machine. Nasty, nasty hit!

10. Cutler to Walker in Arizona. All of Broncos Country collectively exclaimed, WOW!

Flame away!!

Ummm....you are wrong....

The first century was years 1 through 100....
Second century was 101-200...so all of the 100's were the SECOND century
Third century was 201-300, and so on....

You are confusing the Y2K mantra with a new century....

And the 21st century started on January 1, 2001....

All things start with 1....so the next decade begins on January 1, 2011.

Most of the obvious have been mentioned. I'd add:


2007: Fire-drill FG in week 1 against Buffalo.

2006: 13-3 win over Ravens in week 5. Not really a moment, but it was the culmination of that incredible defensive first half of the season. That was a lot of fun to watch (before, yes, it fell apart), and the Baltimore game was one of the best defensive battles this team played in this decade.

I'm not sure about the technicality of the year one or year zero thing. All i know is this:

The 70's - 1970 to 1979
The 80's - 1980 to 1989
The 90's - 1990 to 1999
The 00's - 2000 to 2009 (By the way, what do we even call this past decade? The double-oh's?)

So this may not be scientific, but it's the way our culture likes to organize things. Hence the reason the media is pumping the top tens of the decade.
