Seriously. What a burden lifted off of the fans and the organization.

Will never forget a minute of that day.

I thought about it this morning. Such a great day, I will never forget the feeling. I still get goose bumps thinking about it.

It couldn't have been sweeter that we were such underdogs. My first year was the 42-10 loss to washington. Every year since i always rooted for the AFC in the superbowl but in hindsight I'm glad we had that massive AFC losing streak. It meant everything was against us. There were people saying that the AFC was INCAPABLE of beating the NFC. There was talk about realigning the league to give us a chance. Green bay had won the year before and were supposedly going to beat us to take Dallas' crown as the next great dynasty. Even I was just praying that somehow we would just be in the game.

Except I never really doubted that we woudl win. Sitting through those previous blowouts I knew that was the only way to beat #7, becuase if there was only a single-digit points difference in the 4th we all knew #7 would get it done. and he did!!!!

I will say this though: we lost the previous SBs so heavily becase the teams weren't really that good. The Bills lost theirs because they choked though, I'm sure of it! they had talent everywhere and they got hammered jeee-zuz! I rooted for them in the superbowl but I'm glad I don't support them.....

I moved away from Colorado after the 2nd Superbowl, it was so great living there when we won. What I remember most is for weeks hearing Dave Logan's calls of the game:

Davis - into the endzone, walking, standing up! Can you say, Denver is IN THE LEAD!
And my favorite:

Quote:
One play baby, one play. 4th and 6. And I know I’m supposed to be objective but I can’t help it. 4th and 6 with 32 seconds to go. One play to the Championship. Freeman and Mays wide left, Chmura inside of Mickens to the right side, Favre with Levens behind him. 4th and 6 from the 31. Blitz is on. Favre – hit as he throws. Pass is gonna be INCOMPLETE!!!! DENVER HOOOOOLLLLDDDSSS!!! Denver’s gonna win it! Oh baby they’re gonna win this thing! Are you kidding me? Bronco players are all over the field! Oh man! You can stand up and salute in Denver. You got the World Champions that live in your town.

Reading that gave me goosebumps.

Nothing will ever come close to that Super Bowl. Ever. Even if Tebow breaks his leg during the Super Bowl and suffers and guts out brutal hit after brutal hit with blood all over his jersey and just wills the team to a Supe Bowl win.

Not even that would come close to the feeling i had when Mobley knocked that pass down and Elway kneeled before raising is arms in victory. Everything about that win was just so awesome and storybook.

I think the only day of my life that would be called better than that would be the birth of my son. Other than that, nothing comes close to the feeling i had when we won the Super Bowl that day. Didn't have a party either. Just me and my dad watching it, as we had every game that season. And to see the look on my dads face after 37 years of watching them, and suffering through all the disappointments, when we won, just unbelievable. Nothing will ever come close to that.

Yep, the Broncos winning that game swung the power back to the AFC and it's been the AFC teams that have dominated ever sense. This was such a huge game for the Broncos and the entire AFC. The Broncos still don't get the credit they deserve for punching the NFC Golden Boy in the mouth, along with the cheezedick packers.
