Default Will Denver score a return touchdown this year?

I don't know the exact date, but it seems like we've been without a punt return or a kick-off return for a touchdown since Griese was slinging the rock around here. So, will Alphonso, Eddie or somebody else break the hapless streak and score us some ****ing special team points or what?

i think with actual focus on our Special Teams that hasn't happened in a long time under Mike, that our chances of looking decent on ST and possibly having a return TD go up. at the worst, even without a score, i think the field position is going to be better.

I thought this was a silly question until I read it again and saw that you meant us scoring a touchdown and not GETTING scored on.

Why not, we are due. Last one was Glenn Martinez I believe...

We worked on STs A LOT today. Both practices. I would be shocked if we don't score a return TD. Smith, Royal, and McKinnley are all very quick and shifty... it will happen.

Eddie came pretty close last year, I think Eddie will actually get a return TD or two this year

good to see you dream. When is your vacation over at BF?

If nate mf webster could take one back last year, then we will have shyt ton this year.

If you mean kick/punts see below.


Fast eddie almost had 2 go back last year. I think with the increased attention JMD is giving there is no effing way we dont get atleast one. My guess is 3.

Prater might Garo Yepremian a pass to the other team, so why is there only one kicker in camp when the one we have is a choke artist?

that was such a bull**** call. i almost threw my remote through the tv when that was called back. Hester runs one back and the Bears on the sidelines come onto the field and no penalty, DWill takes one back and a few Broncos get on the field and the refs **** us over.

Prater had a decent rookie season, and by showing confidence in him by not bringing in a kicker to compete with him it builds up his confidence in himself. he has the talent to be a good kicker here for a long time, just needs to work on his conditioning in his kicking leg and keep his confidence up

Exactly. I think it was even a Monday night game against the Titans, if my fading memory is correct...

Yeah, 2007, not too long ago, but still, not often enough.

who honestly cares if we score a return TD this season? all i care about is that we improve our starting Field Position and make the field longer for the opposition. Tampa Bay i believe has never scored a return TD in their entire history

last punt return TD was by glenn martinez during the 2006-2007 season.....

last kick return for a TD was ages ago dont remeber exactly but its been like 8 years.

in fact royals 95 yd return was the closet we have been (without penalties included) in like 5 years.

our blocking units always sucked and we belived RB's with horrible vision....ANDRE HALL were the answer....lol
