Default In 1977...

The Denver Broncos started the season with a rookie head coach who set a Club record by going 6-0 before losing to the Oakland Raiders by double digits in game seven. Denver didn't score a point until the fourth quarter in garbage time.

The following week they bounced back from the dreadful game when they played the Pittsburgh Steelers and beat them 21-7 at home. They would go on to win their next five games, finishing 12-2 and making the playoffs and eventually play in New Orleans for the Super Bowl.

Just something to think about. Carry on.

Wow, that's quite the coincidence seeing as how we are about to wallop the Steelers.

Unfortunately that is true. I really have been underwhelmed by Coach Priefer. It's not like he ran a good unit in KC. I haven't seen anything outside of two good returns that suggests he's the guy we need back there. Even in San Diego we gave up a return to Sproles. It's frankly annoying.

STs are made with your recent draft picks it will take a few drafts to improve the unit. Surpassingly it is the hardest unit to build.

In 1977 it had been 7 years since KFC won a SB.

7 years is a long time but nothing like 38 years, that is almost 2 generations and 4 DECADES!
