I wouldn't put Knowshon at Portis' level...yet. Hopefully, he puts on a Portis-like performance...

218 yds rushing. 5 TDs.

Still the greatest fantasy football performance of all time by most scoring systems:

The Broncos haven't had an RB with that type of break away speed since.

Put on a Clinton Portis highlight reel from his days in Denver, and it is amazing to see how fast he was.

Still say we got the better end of that deal. Portis put in a couple of more respectable seasons in DC. Champ is a first ballot HOF'er.

One of my favorite KC games...

On the final TD drive, the Chiefs were flagged 5 TIMES for unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. All Pro LB and pass rushing phenom Derrick Thomas was the culprit on three of them, once for hitting Brister in the head when he was on the ground, and twice for grabbing and twisting at TE Shannon Sharpe's leg.

What caused this eruption of bone-headed-ness and emotional poor judgement?

Shannon Sharpe and Derrick Thomas knew each other. Sharpe knew the phone number of Thomas' girlfriend and before each snap on that final drive would recite the entire phone number one digit at a time. Talk about getting into someone's head!

Dude, if that is Manning and Elway morphed into one, that would be the most perfect QB. Scary avatar.

Wow, I never knew that story. I wondered what caused Thomas to snap that drive.

The thing that sent Thomas over the top on that drive was when Shannon said something to the effect of "She told me you have small feet!"

Classic. Now that's how trash talking should be. Clever and witty. That's what really gets under their skin.

I miss Shannon. That "red phone" call to the President was just awesome.
