I love Mike Shanahan & Pat Bowlen and their divorce is more traumatic to me personally than my parents'.

Nice to see Rod Smith's first catch with Elway's hell mary pass. I remember watching that on my 8 foot satellite giving the play by play to a friend on the phone.

I was at that game. We had walked down to field level to exit the stadium when the game ended, and it happened in the South end zone, literally right in front of us. Awesome.

It is called a Hail Mary pass, like a catholic prayer, although if he drops it then it is most definatly a hell mary pass

He was a classless mofo.
After he played for Denver, he went to the Dallas Cowboys.
He was asked the difference between having caught passes from elway and now from Aikman.
He said, Aikman had two (three at that time?) Superbowl rings.
That was his asnwer.
I lost of the respect for the guy.
He was a great player with sna Diego, but he didn't do squat here

I remember that season well.

I remember being disappointed that two no-name late draft picks/UDFA's had pushed aside some veterants. Living in Texas, I didnt have access to information other than seeing who was on the field at the time, so I didnt know that Terrell Davis, Rod Smith, and Shannon Sharpe were about to blitzkrieg the league. All three are right up there with my favorite players of all time. Fun season.

strafen 11-30-2010 10:49 PM

I was at that game. Northstadn section 136 row 24.
We've got tickes from a lady in Loveland.
After we went to the SB, I couldn't get tickets anymore.
I was buying these tickets from this lady every year until that point.

Nice video there. That's what a QB is supposed to play like.
Never give up!

Elway publicly ripped Miller after he left. That was out of character for Elway. He said Miller would b**** after team victories because he didn't get the ball enough.

Miller did enough here to set the Broncos' single season TD reception record of 14, which still stands today.

Yep I remember that. I think he only had about 60 catches but 14 or 15 of them were for TD's, including a couple against Dallas early in the year.

The 1995 Broncos were an interesting team. I was very excited for the dawn of the Shanny era and I was very much looking forward to having a nice pizza while watching the season opener on Sunday night on TNT vs. the Bills. Denver won 22-7, but I was impressed with how easily we were able to carve up the Bills defense. Denver could have scored ALOT more points in that game, but we had some big drops including a drop by Ed in the endzone. Elway had over 300 yards in that game and we really had a great effort. You could see even then how gifted Shanny was in terms of offensive gameplanning. There was a game against the Cardinals that was a CLINIC for how to take apart the 46 defense. We completely destroyed that defense and everything we ran worked.

It was also the beginning of Shanny's OWNING of Belichick's defense. New England was still coached by Parcells at the time, but Belichick was the DC I believe and was absolutely lit up by Denver in a 37-3 blowout, I believe that was also a TNT Sunday night game if I remember correctly. Probably the best moment of the season was the 27-0 shutout win over the Raiders on MNF. We were inconsistent that year and dropped some games we should have won, but it was an enjoyable season to watch, esp to see TD's progression. Early in the season, Shanny was really trying to get us to adjust to the San Francisco dropback passing game, but Elway felt more comfortable in the shotgun so around midway through the year, they started to go to that some more. It was a fun year to watch even though we only finished at .500.

SonOfLe-loLang 12-01-2010 12:40 AM

Milburn still hold that record?

My Brother and I went to the Cardinal game, It was my 1st in MH, I saw the deep play to Miller open up and was pointing to Miller and pulling my brothers arm to get his attention and yelling "MILLLER" just as Elway let it loose. Great memory of a great day. That was also the start of TD getting 120+ YPG, he had 80-90 yards at the half just on quick dive plays. It was fun to see that team grow and execute.

1995 was a team who won 2, lost 2, then would win one and lose one, they had high scoring games but were in them. Plus they were beating the teams they should have and lost to the good teams. That is one difference between the 1995 team and the 2010 team, the 2010 team is finding ways to lose to the bad teams as well as the good ones.

That game set the tone for Shanahan's dominance of the Raiders.

Phillips went 0-5 vs. the Raiders and Reeves had his share of bad losses against them so it was fun to be on the winning side of the rivalry for once.

TD was better than Curtis Martin and a late season injury cost him a chance at the Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Bronco Rob 07-15-2011 04:32 PM

I'll never forget in the Jacksonville Jaguars game Elway making one of the most incredible throws to Michael Pritchard.

Watching TD brings tears of joy and sadness to my eyes
at the same time.
