Of course the other teams get like 5 plays each... No Helicopter... So we gotta rep it.

Tebow to Thomas should be on there too.

How did that make the cut? I can think of a half dozen better Broncos plays off the top of my head. And none of them compare to the immaculate reception.

They've got the Champ 100yd pick return against the Pats...but of course categorize it as "Ben Watson chases down Champ Bailey."

I get why people like that aspect of it, but it is a little odd that the play that literally snapped the Pats back to back Super Bowl streak is being considered on a list as one of their franchises greatest moments.

Also, while it is cool idea to have all those plays compiled where you can watch the videos in one spot, they did a really crappy job in presenting them. Every one I've watched has the play going in slow motion with the radio call in real time, so they never aren't close to being synced and you hear the call before seeing it.

This one is infinitely better than the Stokely grab. In my view, this is probably the greatest single play in Broncos history:



Brings tears to my eyes remembering that moment. That was incredible.

"AGAIN! It was blocked! Again it was blocked! HOLD EVERYTHING! What a turnaround!"

This is what Mile High Magic was all about. This play created a generation of Broncos fans.

I'm disappointed that they have Logan's call on that play and not Gus Johnson's

What about when Steve Atwater took out his own guy trying to decapitate Robert Brooks in the Super Bowl against the Packers? I still **** myself hearing that hit.

Aside from the obvious stupid Denver play...the Cunningham evade a sack 10 yard TD throw they have in the bracket isnt even the best Randall Cunningham play. The 100 yard TD throw where he ducks under bruce smith to avoid a safety is. This list is weak.

Ed McCaffery's blindside block in SB XXXII

Tebow to Thomas in 2011 wildcard game

Gradishar's 93 yard INT return vs. Browns is deserving as well



Chris Harris' 98 yarder INt return....Elway to Nattiel 56 yard TD on first play from scrimmage in SB.

Jeremiah Castille's strip of Earnest Byner and subsequent recovery of "the fumble" that preserved AFCCG win in 1987 season.

Morton to Dolbin to ice divisional playoff (and Broncos first postseason win ever) game vs. Steelers.....

Morton to Moses 74 yd TD vs. Raiders in AFC title game....

The only reason that play even gets considered is because of Gus Johnson's call. His call was pretty epic... I can remember it without even having to watch the play: "CAUGHT! Stokley, down the sideline! Can they catch him? WOW!"

But yeah pretty inexcusable to consider that the only Broncos play worth consideration... no one should consider that the greatest play in Broncos history.

Agreeing with everything said here, let's also not undersell the Stokely play. It was incredible.

87 yards away. 26 seconds left. Offensive ineptitude up to that point, so little reason for hope. Coming off the most tumultuous and controversial offseason in memory. It was a miracle play that sparked a short lived, but fun, 6-0 start. Given the yardage covered, probably statistically more unlikely than your average Hail Mary. And a phenomenally heady play by Stokely to find the ball, catch it, and burn clock at the end. Not the best in franchise history, but one of the best in this decade.

Music City Miracle or the David Tyree catch should win that thing.

Cool, i get to count the blocks in the back again on the Dante hall return!

Great video clip. That duck under then throw a dart to Sharpe vs. Seattle was awesome. I will never forget that play.

I will never forget the Elway scramble then throw back across the field passes. The commentators were stunned, the fans went crazy and always seem to happen on a Nationally televised game, which was great.

I recall that scramble back & forth vs. the Faiders later in Johns career to throw a TD pass to Sharpe. The annoncer just says vintage Elway.

Great memories..
