Good chance Broncos will draw boos at Chargers playoff gm
Four kids representing the Denver Broncos are going to be finalists at the NFL Punt, Pass and Punt Competition at the Chargers-Jets playoff game this Sunday.
If one or more of these four kids wins their age group, they will be introduced in a Denver Broncos jersey to the Chargers home crowd right before the start of the fourth quarter and it will be aired live in CBS. If you recall in previous games, kids wearing rivals' colors get booed.
I hope all four of the kids win.
32 FINALISTS OUT OF 3.5 MILLION CONTESTANTS QUALIFY FOR
NFL PUNT, PASS AND KICK NATIONAL FINALS IN SAN DIEGO
Finalists Hail From 22 States, CBS to Spotlight Champions
Thirty-two young football players from around the country will compete in the NFL PUNT, PASS AND KICK National Finals on January 17, prior to the AFC Divisional Playoff Game in San Diego. A special on-field award presentation will air after the third quarter of the game, which airs on CBS.
More than 3.5 million boys and girls competed in NFL Punt, Pass and Kick this year. Finalists will compete separately in four age divisions, with the top scorer in each group crowned national champion. All participants launch one punt, one pass and one kick, with scores based on distance and accuracy (in feet). All 32 youngsters advanced to the National Finals through local, sectional and team championship competitions held throughout the NFL regular season. The top four scorers in each age group from around the country qualified as national finalists.
NFL Punt, Pass and Kick, which began in 1961, is the nation’s largest grassroots sports skills competition. NFL stars including Minnesota Vikings QB BRETT FAVRE, former Dallas Cowboys QB TROY AIKMAN and former Miami Dolphins QB DAN MARINO competed in the Punt, Pass and Kick program as youngsters.
“The NFL Punt, Pass and Kick program gives millions of girls and boys around the country a way to be active participants in the game of football,” said NFL Senior Vice President of Events FRANK SUPOVITZ. “We are pleased to see so many of our young fans entering football through this program.”
All participants and their guest are provided airfare, hotel accommodations and tickets to the AFC Divisional Playoff Game.

Is our team really so pathetic that we have to look for 'disrespect' in the Punt, Pass & Kick competition?
