    KC was a big time rivlary, second only to Oakland. Now its the other way around simply because KC is considerably better than Chokeland these days:-)

    Fans who grew up during the Elway years can't relate to the experience of going for years thinking you'd never even have a winning season and then suddenly all at once, you're in the Super Bowl...the dream come true. The emotions of losing that game are something I'll never forget. It was such a huge buildup in Denver that year. Everything was painted orange, including people. I was 19...and when they lost the Super Bowl, the emotional fall was so fast and so far...I cried like a baby.

    Years later...I finally felt the other side of that roller coaster...a high I've never had in sports before or since...when they finally won it all against the Packers.

    How did the players deal with the dissapointment of losing? Why was Red Miller such a quick exit after the meteoric rise...and what became of him? Is he still alive? What's he doing today and is he a Denver fan?

    Exactly what i was thinking i was about 12 years old.

    To this day I still thought it was a fumble but I was living in coldwater Michigan then & my dog was found dead before kick off so I was not all there for most of the game but saw the fumble. Glad that went our way.Cowgirls would have crushed butt-pirates in out place if they go in stead of Broncos.

    It was a fumble you can clearly see it on the replay. It was falling out while Lytle was still in the air.

    That was my question. Where was he on the Lytle fumble? What was the on field reaction. But also, the broncos were robbed by a bad call that allowed the Faide to score shortly before the fumble. What was the reaction on the sideline to that call?

    Also, my recollection is that the Runningback by committee was really necessitated by Armstrong getting a bum knee and really not being all that he'd been.

    I also seem to recall the broncos partied a bit too hard prior to the superbowl.

    1977 a great year

    It was the year I moved to Denver. The thing about the Broncos and the fans I remember the most, was the Orange Crush mantra. The wave of that mantra swept me up and that is when I became a true Broncoholic,like I am now. I t was a great atmosphere to get caught up in, and I wes glad to get caught up in it.

    How did it feel to win the division for the 1st time

    How did having to rotate QB's affect the huddle & the mind set of the offense. Was the Offense used to it by the Super Bowl, was Weese a QB the team rallyed around or felt like they had to press harder for to make a play when he was in? What was the over all mind set of the players when Norris Weese came onto the field? Morton seemed to make things happen, Weese to a kid of 11 seemed to be a coaches favorite, a guy that a coach thought he could get to make a few plays with a game. just my observation from 30 years back...
    good questions
