It was essentially all downhill after that game. Seriously, he peaked around week 10 of that year and has done next to nothing since.....aside from some special teams highlights. He was going to crap before Shanny left.
And McD managed to get career years out of every other Bronco WR when he was here (his only real positive when you think about it), so that doesn't exactly work in Royal's favor either.
