Default Rick Upchurch - Top 10 Return Aces

In about 90 minutes NFL Netwrok will be showing the NFL's Top 10 Return Men and if my man Rick Upchurch doesn't make a top 5 showing on this list, I'll be disappointed. If he only makes honorable mention, I'll be really pissed.

Of course Deion and Gale Sayers will be way up there as will White Shoes Johnson. Darrien Gordon will probably get an honorable mention only.

But if they put stat accumulators like Brian Mitchell and Vai Sikahema ahead of Upchurch, it'll be a disgrace. Upchurch was the most feared return man in football for 5 straight years.

Should be a fun show.

Hmm, Dante Hall should be up there, at least honorable mention.... anyone remember that game where he juked about 37 of our guys at the 2 yard line and took it to the house? Man I was pissed!!

Glyn Milburn was fun to watch while he lasted as well.

Yah, I remember that. I also remember at least two clips that weren't called and one of the clips was right in front of the back judge, I mean right freaking in front of him.

I can't stand that crap.

Yah, Hall was having a great year but missed calls like that are just frustrating as all get out.

If I remember correctly the Bronco would have won that game if the Hall TD never occured...

Two clips? You're being generous, my mind shows me there were no less than 5. Although, I have probably over-exagerated it over the years.

I think you may be right (also I said at LEAST two clips). I taped the game and watched that play like 10 times and I remember thinking, wow, what a bunch of crap...

I take it back on Brian Mitchell as I forgot that he returned 13 TD's in his career. That combined with his longevity does earn him number 2 all time.

Don't forget Deion Sanders ... he might even hit #1.

Upchurch will be close .... might not make it actually. He'll be one of the "just missed" guys like Gradishar was on the MLB list.

Rick Upchurch is the main reason I started liking the Broncos.

He grew up right outside of Toledo, Ohio just a few miles from where I grew up. He played for Springfield High School and the local news always covered his highlights. I remember watching the Broncos in their old orange uniforms playing in the snow and that did it for me. I met Upchurch when he was back in town when I was probably 7 or 8 and he signed all my cards and gave me some 8x10 autographed photos.

Good to see him getting some respect.
