And they pointed out also that since Davis had so many yards early in alot of his games that he sat out the equivalent of 2 full games and still went over 200 yards in the season. I bet he would have had at least 200 more yards if he had played more. Still, can't complain, most total yards in 1 full season including playoffs by a RB ever. His career was short but he did it all (Leage MVP, Superbowl MVP, 2000K club, 2 Superbowl wins, Probowls).

Just an amazing team. Hard to believe that was 15 years ago.

Actually, the 5-8 NY Giants ruined our streak the week before. Miami was our 2nd straight loss after starting 13-0.

Actually it was the NY Giants who defeated us 20-16 to end our winning streak at 13 games.....however Elway and crew stated that it was a huge relief to get back to just playing football again vs. always talking and worrying about going undefeated.

Actually it was...

I loved how Miami was strutting around, thinking they had a shot at beating us in the playoffs. Shanny used the game as a chess match to see what Miami was doing defensively and to plan against it. Smart move. Wanny and Jimmy threw the kitchen sink at us and then had no answer when we played them in the playoffs.

It was only natural to have a letdown after losing to the Giants, but the gameplan was so vanilla looking forward to a potential playoff rematch, it was comical. I also remember Brister coming in for relief late only to have Elway come back in (for some reason) and throw a pick. One of the Phins nobody receivers had a huge night.

I was praying they'd play Miami after that game, and several experts leading into the game said the Phins could pull off the upset. (Yeah, right...)

Shanahan had their defense totally lost from the get go with extra linemen and what not, and even broke out a sweep with Elway. Eventhough Zach Thomas almost killed him later. I can't forget Neil Smith's HOUR long rumble down the sidelines was the icing on the cake for the blowout. Damn, what a team.

Man it was kinda nice to see how a little luck can pay off. In that Miami game, two dropped passes by Miami caused them to go 3 and out, and then our first drive, a dropped interception in our territory by Miami.

But man, people want to say TD was a system back, whatever, its amazing to watch how fast he plays, and how quick his cuts were.
