Holiday Greetings all!

Saw this on the recently received promo for Broncos Photo Store. Anyone know exactly what '7-18-44' means? A play perhaps?

Because he was great, manning called and asked if it was ok to use.

I know about manning, just seemed strange because of his short tenure and mediocre stats. Way before my time though, so was just curious if he was a guy that was great despite his stats or if there was more to it.

That first year of the AFL, the Broncos had a couple QBs go down in that last preseason game. Tripucka was an assistant coach at the time and coach Filchock had him go in at QB. He was the first QB in AFL history to throw for more than 3000 yards in a season and he recorded the first TD in AFL history.

I would hope not, considering his long career on only one team, hof and Super Bowls. I was just curious, and the only answer was he was the first bronco QB, which I knew, and doesn't seem to be worthy of a number retired, but that's just my opinion.

BroncoBuff 11-29-2013 09:50 AM

NewB or no newB, I think it's a good question.

In 5 seasons as a Bronco, Mr. T racked up a 13-25-1 record, 51% completions, 51 TDs, 85 Ints and a gaudy 55.9 Efficiency rating.

He came out of retirement to play, but he looks too old to me:

Although this is who the Pat-riots started against him in the first-ever AFL game:

I was just kidding with that picture of Tripucka, that was taken much later ...!! :spit:

Here's Frank then ... in his Copper Bowl mustard duds:
