I am confused. The banner next to Elway says Jesus, but I thought that was Tebow? Are they one in the same person? This seems to be a theological mystery.

No its not a mystery. Tebow is a p***Y in comparison to Elway and you ****ing idiots need to stop even putting the two in teh same sentence.

Thanks for posting this....I'll always remember that game.

One thing I will always have etched in my memory is Warren Moon throwing his Gatorade cup down in disgust when Elway hit Vance Johnson for 44 yards on 4th and 10.

Props to Gary Kubiak....he did a heck of a job handling that low snap on the winning FG.

I see what you are saying there, but I have a sense of humor and a severe lack of respect for authority.

Charlie Jones and Todd Christensen were the announcers for the game.

You could always tell that Charlie Jones was an Elway fan and we all know Todd Christensen loathed the Broncos.

Charlie Jones at one point in the drive creamed his pants and said : "It doesn't get any better....I love it!"....while Todd Christensen acted like he caught a whiff of some fresh turds every time Elway made a big play.

Awesome.

That's what made Elway great! 4th&6, and 4th&10 and you still felt like he was going to make a play and then he went out there and did it.

I lived in Houston at that time right after moving from Denver. I was watching the game with some my friends at that time and kept hearing how great the run n shoot offense was and how Dishman would shut Elway down. Moment the broncos got backed up to the 2, they all thought the Oilers won it. I told them in a few minutes they'll feel exactly like the people of Cleveland. For the rest of the school yr, whenever my friend saw me he would mutter "f$ckin 4th and 10."

Good job on Kubiaks part for being able to handle the snap and also to talk to the official beforehand and make sure he knew his options if he had to eat it.

Watching those highlights almost brings a tear to my eyes.

80's/early 90's era football was my favorite era of football.

We won the Super Bowls in the late 90s, but nothing beats the old uniforms, a young gun slinging athletic John Elway, and a ravenous Mile High crowd that savored the last minute comebacks.

Those games were during my youth and I identify those carefree years closely with the Broncos....back then I lived and died with those games.

I'm still a football nut, but now there are mortgages, a wife, a kid, a job, and bills....I put wins and losses in perspective....but back then life was a lot less complicated and every win or loss was to be drunken in like the sweet nectar of the gods or agonized over profusely.

I get nostalgic when I see those old highlights.

Funny I feel the same way about the superbowl years because I was young. It will never be that "magical".

The Super Bowl winning years were magical to me....because it was a culmination of John Elway's career and those Super Bowl losses and I wanted to see him win a Super Bowl in the worst way.... but it was living and dying with all the games all those previous years that made it so special.

I was 25 and 26 when we won the 2 Super Bowls, so it was the perfect ending to that whole era for me.

What a way to finish the John Elway era of Broncos football....we were pretty damn lucky to experience that.

Those teams kicked some ass....the earlier teams fought to comeback and win games anyway they could....but it was sweet to see Denver finally have a team that kicked ass and rolled the other teams like they did.

I had my season tickets during the Super Bowl winning years.

It was awesome because it seemed like we would kick every team in their peckers at home and losing a home game was a rare occurrence back then. I loved getting wasted in the South Stands and watching us destroy teams during that time period.

That Jacksonville playoff loss deflated me....I thought that was Elway's big chance to win it all that year. I walked out of the stadium feeling like somebody shanked my dog.

That ****ty game made the next 2 years even sweeter.

I was at this game with one of my best friends who has since passed away. Truly one of the greatest days, and fondest memories, of my entire life.

You disagree with that?

Todd Christensen was a Raider and whenever he announced a Denver game you could tell he wanted the other team to win.

I just watched the 1988 (87 season) beatdown of the Oilers the other day. I am rewatching the Lions game from the 87 season for the same reason as your post above.

I need to get more dvd's from Atlas, I have a big whole in the SB run years of the mid-late 80's.

I can't wait to hear that the lock out is over.

Its obvious though what a pathetic offense reeves had. It was ruin the first 3 quarters then turn Elway loose in 4th to try and win the game. Its basically all broken plays.
