Hold on to the damn football?

11-11-2012 11:08 AM

I think the ground caused that one. Props to the coaches for holding on to this guy after his slow start

Glyn Milburn.

I am going to ask my inside source at Dove Valley for the answer... I will be right back.

Darian Gordon was the last great punt returner. Royal was really good.

Champ was pretty good when he first cam here

OBF1 11-11-2012 01:24 PM

My source just got back to me... Some guy named Rick Upchurch???

Garcia Bronco 11-11-2012 01:25 PM

Upchurch

ScottXray 11-11-2012 01:27 PM

Our last GREAT returner was definitely Rick Upchurch. Threat to score every time he touched it, even without good blocking.

Trindon has a way to go...but impressed today and last week.

TNF 11-11-2012 01:28 PM

Upchurch the best by far. Although Royal and Gordon had their moments, Upchurch was the one and only premier return specialist in franchise history.

Yep! The last guy you actually thought he was going to take it back for a td. he was really good at it, sort of underrated maybe? As evidenced by you sort of putting a ? by it. Really though no one else has come close to him since we won Superbowls.

cutthemdown 11-11-2012 01:40 PM

Obviously Rick Upchurch also but that is going way back.

11-11-2012 01:40 PM

We traded for him DeAngelo Williams.

Upchurch was great but Darien Gordan was great too and he was the last one. He actually was better than Upchurch as well.

KipCorrington25 11-11-2012 01:42 PM

Gordon was great I still don't understand why they got ride of him...

Gordon was the last guy, then I would go back to Upchurch and then To Little.

Rod could step in and return a punt for a score if needed, Royal had a couple good returns but those 3 were the best Bronco returners.

Gordan was a FA, he got two SB wins then he took the money the Raiders offered him. Denver did not get rid of him, he left.

Kaylore 11-11-2012 01:45 PM

Everyone who suggested Royal was anything more than average doesn't know football.
