Opening Day 1976 featured the return of Otis Armsstrong, but the anemic O Line and Steve Ramsey's bad QB play started us out at 0-1

We get to 1-1, with the biggest home victory in team history, still is by the way. John Ralston's Broncos 46 Lou Holtz's Jets 3. LOL

During this game, a key Jets executive suffered a heart attack at Mile High Stadium and died. True story.

Upchurch was sick! 92 yard return for his 3rd TD in 2 weeks.

This is a very underrated game in Bronco history. This game served as a major thorn in the players, leading to the ouster of coach John Ralston. Ralston never really knew the Offense, and when Offensive Coordinator Max Coley took ill in the 2nd quarter, the Broncos were left with no one to call the Offense. Offensive Assistants had to try to call the plays and it was a debacle. Veteran players went to management, incredulous that their head coach could not call the Offensive game plan. This is the game where Alzado, watching from home, threw his crutch through his TV screen. Alzado was lost for the year on the first series in Cincinnati.

After a week 6 loss at home to Oakland to drop to 3-3, the Broncos traveled to Kansas City and won a shootout with the Chiefs 35-26. Upchurch scored for the 4th time in 7 games, as this was his only ever punt return TD on the road.

After a blowout win over the expansion Bucs and the 2nd shutout of the Chargers, the Broncos moved to 7-4 with this win over the Giants. The 76 Giants were QB'd by Craig Morton, and after this game, Morton, who knew he was done in New York, had targeted a trade to the Broncos in his head. He just experienced first hand what a great Defense Denver head and thought they just needed some better leadershi at the QB position.

I forgot that Mile High still had the old east stands through the 76 season (you can see the newer movable east stands under construction at the start of this footage).

A showdown game for the AFC Wild Card as the 8-3 Patriots squared away with the 7-4 Broncos. It was all but assured the winner of this game would get the AFC Wild Card spot.

It was a massacre, but it ended up being another historical loss. Down 31-0, numerous players spotted Steve Ramsey smiling coming off the field after an Interception. He was done as a Broncos QB, and would sit the bench the last two weeks.

The Patriots were the surprise team in the NFL in 1976, and their rushing attack was the best in the NFL. The Phipps brothers took note and hired the Patriots Offensive Coordinator, to be our new head coach at seasons end. His name? Red Miller

Another historical game from 1976. The season finale versus the Bears. Is this still a team rushing record? The Broncos ran for 356 yards in this season finale, with a best ever team record of 9-5. Otis Armstrong ran for 100+ yards and finished over 1,000 for the season. Norris Weese scrambled for over 100 yards as well. And Riley Odoms and Rick Upchurch both scored on end arounds/reverses. Cool footage.

Opening day 1974. After losing the division title to the Raiders on the final Sunday of the 1973 season by 4 points, the Broncos were being picked by many to contend in the AFC.

But the schedule makers started Denver out with a murderous start, with this opener against the perennial power Rams, vs the Steelers in week 2 and at the Redskins on MNF in week 3.

More history involving the Broncos. Through 1973, if a game ended with a tie after 60 minutes, it finished as a tie!! In 1974 the NFL enacted "Sudden Death". In week one there were no overtime games. In week 2 the Broncos and Steelers played a 75 minute tie, 35 apiece. Awesome game!!

I've been collecting Broncos games for the past year, so right now it's still small. I enjoy making edits of the plays and posting them on You Tube because there's virtually nothing with pre-Elway Broncos on there unless it's the Super Bowl XII game. Your list is so impressive; some of those games I haven't even seen on the buy/sell websites so you're lucky to have them.

Recently I won a bid on the '78 Broncos yearbook, which is an item you rarely see. I also acquired two "Broncos Reports" newspapers from '78 as well. I love the rare Broncos stuff.

PS--Where in LI are you? I have lots of family out there (I'm originally from Glendale, Queens)

Keep it up guys. I only have a few videos and hope to collect more so I can enter the conversation anytime someone brings up the 70s. Started in 1977 but as a 7 year old, you cant remember every detail.
BTW, if any of you have the 88 game vs the Rams, I believe the best run in Elway's history (before the helicopter in SB32) happens in this game as he scrambles from the 32 yard line to score and I believe it was on 3rd down of course. The game shows what Elway put up with Reeves' playcalling and then goes in Elway mode for the 4th quarter.

I wish I could help you there Broncocalijohn but the only '88 game I have is that debacle in Indianapolis on Monday Night Football Halloween night. The game where I cursed Eric Dickerson's name all night--and I was 13 at the time!!

Another historical game. Our first ever win in Kansas City. Lost our first 11 trips to KC (1963 to 1973). Thanks to Steve Ramsey's solid relief job and two TD's from rookie Jon Keyworth, we get the win.

I've been collecting Broncos games for the past year, so right now it's still small. I enjoy making edits of the plays and posting them on You Tube because there's virtually nothing with pre-Elway Broncos on there unless it's the Super Bowl XII game. Your list is so impressive; some of those games I haven't even seen on the buy/sell websites so you're lucky to have them.

Recently I won a bid on the '78 Broncos yearbook, which is an item you rarely see. I also acquired two "Broncos Reports" newspapers from '78 as well. I love the rare Broncos stuff.

PS--Where in LI are you? I have lots of family out there (I'm originally from Glendale, Queens)

Do you have anything pre '77? All I can find is the '73 MNF game.

You would have loved Atlas, he had tons of stuff, probablly still does, I could hunt him down if you want me to.

Thanks! Yeah, the Broncos got killed that day, but I was beside myself because I was finally seeing my team live and in the flesh.

My oldest brother took me down to the tunnel where the players were coming out post game and I got the autographs of Charlie Johnson & Floyd Little. They were kind enough to stop and sign my program amongst a hoard of jeering, classless Bills fans and cemented themselves as my fave Broncos to this day because of it.

The heartbreaker? I later lost the program somehow :( I still have the game tickets though.

This 1975 week 5 game got us to 3-2 at the time. When you watch this, you probably can't fully understand how rare a 53 yard game winning FG at the buzzer was. It was about a 5% chance back in the day.

An awesome moment for Ring of Famer Jim "Tank" Turner. Oliver Rpss was the joker who was supposed to fill in nicely for Otis Armstrong, who was out almost the entire season with a badly pulled hammy! Combined with Floyd, who was not fully healthy andcouldn't shoulder a full game load in his last season. Oliver Ross was out of football in two years.

As a kid, I liked Ramsey, but you can see him almost apologizing as he was throwing the ball. His quirky 3/4 delivery, pudgy stomach and lack of vocal leadership, made him an easy target for fellow players and the media.

He actually had several nice performances in his career, especially in relief of Charlie Johnson, who got injured too frequently.

Did not like Ramsey, as you said several nice performances but definitely nothing consistent. I was drawn to the Broncos by Little in a 1970 preseason game in SLC. In 1972 came THE game that woke up us Bronco fans to not just enjoying the Broncos and Little but actually thinking, hey we can win. The game against Minnesota, the very good Vikings. Ralston pulled Ramsey for Charley Johnson and I was thrilled. Little broke a run, being pulled by defensive players and got a TD. Then Charley took us down to put us in the lead. Was so disappointed the Vikings pulled it out at the end but was so excited by what had happened. Then we beat the very good Raiders the next week and the next year we had our first winning season. Those two games are two of my favorites and Charley Johnson will always hold a special place in my heart.....him and Little.

Glory fades; pain endures This is a good read.

With some 1977 Broncos among the "lucky" to get disability pay, the team is a testimony to life after a rough sport.

Every morning when he awakes, former Bronco Tom Glassic takes stock of the level of pain racking his body. Then he plans that day's medication and therapy regimen: a combination of pain pills, hot-tub sessions, stretching and usually a battle re-enactment with his prized collection of toy soldiers.

Almost one of the biggest embarrassments in team history. The Broncos won in OT 13-10, to send the Chargers to an 0-11 record.

In Floyd's Glory Game, his last NFL game in Denver, ****ing NFL Films can only show one play. They don't even show him getting carried off of the field.

The Broncos get to 2-0 in 1977 with a dominant win over the Bills. The Bills only score (not shown) was a Lonnie Perrin fumble returned for a TD. So 2 home games so far, ZERO points allowed by the Defense.

I hated this **** about NFL Films. They show 2 Seahawks TD's but none of ours in a 24-13 win in Seattle to get to 3-0.

4-0 through 4 games in 1977. The Broncos gave up a garbage TD with 3 minutes left to make the final 23-7.

The biggest win in team history, up to that point. Broncos dominate Stabler and win 30-7. Jim Turner's famous TD reception.

You don't suppose NFL Films was wishing the Seahawks won this game instead... Aside from back shots of Alzado and Foley, where was Big Orange?? You wouldn't even know they won this game...

The Broncos get to 6-0 in 1977 with a good road win on the Riverfront Stadium turf.

The Broncos Reddish Orange looked awesome whenever they wore it on the turf! Craig Morton hits Jack Dolbin with an 81 yard beauty. I forgot about Larry Evens' scrambled egg shot to two time Heisman winner Archie Griffin! Broncos win 24-13.

Man this is good stuff! I sometimes forget how epically bad Steve Ramsey was, you never see any Broncos clips older than the 77' season. The only way to keep from repeating Steve Ramsey is to remember Steve Ramsey! That guy was always throwing half cocked or off his back foot. The ball would just hang in the air. Still, Denver in the early 70's had the makings of a decent team and would have been in the playoffs a couple of times under todays expanded format.

Craig Morton played awful in the SB, but I still blame Red Miller. He got Morton busted up late in the year in a meaningless game against Dallas, a game Morton wanted no part of playing in and it had a carry over to the SB. Cant hate on the guy, he was in a hospital bed leading up the the AFCC and had to have Red Miller tie his shoes for crying out loud! Gutsy performance and nobody knew at the time just how hobbled he was. Well, I do remember him getting hit once and the announcer saying, that just might finish Morton for the day or something, so the announcers at least knew he was pretty beat up by that point.

Too bad we didnt play anybody else that year for the title. Always wished we had played Minnesota instead.

john ralston was a terrible head coach. but ralston and his staff as far as drafting talent? they make belichek look retarded. makes bill parcels look stupid. if it wasnt for john ralston, the broncos would be the bengals.

Just wanted to let you guys know that "MrCPanthers1", the You Tube poster whose videos which were posted here came from, just had his account terminated. All of these wonderful clips have now been eradicated.

In the meantime, I will post some clips from my own collection to keep this thread going. I hope you enjoy them and that some of it will bring back some good memories for you.

Unfortunately most of the cool videos have been taken down by the NFL, but there are a few new ones that I thought some people might enjoy. This wasa huge day for the "M & M" combo as Craig Morton hits Haven Moses with two second half TD's to erase a 14-3 halftime deficit.

The second TD is a real cool look from NFL Films that came on 4th and goal, with the game on the line.

The Broncos fall to 1-1 after a crushing shootout loss to John Brodie's 49ers. The 49ers of the early 70's were a very good team as they lost in the NFC title game 3 years in a row to the Cowboys between 1970 and 1972.

A brutal loss to the mediocre Bears. The game was famous for two things. This was truly legendary old school cheap shot football game. Kinda like Derrick Thomas in 1998, except it went on like that for MOST of the game. The Bears won the mental battle.

Also this game had Abe Gibron miked. The fat slob can be remembered singing "Jeremiah was a bullfrog............." among other things. He also gave the finger to the Denver crowd numerous times.

Love the videos ... especially the 1973 ones when Denver finally started to turn it around.

Also like the Broncos win at Arrow Head with Mike Livingston at QB for the Chiefs. Years ago I was living in Dallas and my neighbor was Pat Livingston, his ex-wife, and their then-21-yr-old son. I started a flag football team at work and for one game I got his son as a ringer to play QB, I thought.

Kid was big but didn't much like football, I discovered. So I took over at QB. We lost!
