that's the last one

since 1972 the broncos have only returned two KO's for TD's.

Von Hebron returned one in 1998 against the Dolphins

Royal came very close this year against Miami, I figure he'll get one at some point in the next couple of years.

That is if they let him return kicks of course.

Deltha O' neal retuned a kick in 2000, and a kick after safety return TD in 2003 against the Pats.

doesnt this baffle anyone else??

between the team's inability to cause turnovers and lack of big play special teams, it really seems like we are leaving so much to be desired in the intangibles...

i CANT BELIEVE it's been since 1998....thats UNREAL

Adrian Madise came pretty close in 2003. Think it was against the Packers.

It's all part of the plan. If you return a kick for a TD, it just throws their pathetic defense out there even faster.

I have a feeling he's too important to the O now.

That's why you get another really good WR so we can put him at returner. IMO Broncos too crappy to try and save anyone for anything. Get out there and win some friggin games, then become too important to the offense.

You could probably do both if we did get another legit WR. Have Royal be a returner and a slot receiver.
