Default 1976 Week 5

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.
