  • Broncos Homecoming Set For Thursday

    I love this, and SO wish I could be there to meet some of the former/current players. Too bad there's no chance for the throwback unis, too...


    The NFL is launching its inaugural Homecoming Platform this week.

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo – Just like college and high school football teams around the country, this year NFL teams will have a Homecoming Game.

    The NFL is launching its inaugural Homecoming platform to showcase the accomplishments of its former players and celebrate the fans. The NFL has designated Weeks 14,15 and 16 as Homecoming weeks and legends and Hall of Famers will return to their old teams’ stadium across the league to be honored and reconnect with teammates and fans.

    The Broncos will be holding their Homecoming game this Thursday when AFC-West foe San Diego comes to Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The Broncos are hosting an event with NFL Network to honor Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway and Gary Zimmerman – both Hall of Famers.

    Additionally, several Ring of Famers will be a part of pre-game ceremonies including special recognition and participation in the coin toss as honorary captains. Those former Broncos include Broncos Ring of Famers Terrell Davis, Randy Gradishar, Karl Meckenburg, Haven Moses, Tom Nalen, Billy Thompson, Jim Turner and Louis Wright.

    The NFL is also hosting its first NFL Legends Networking Event in New York City on Sunday, December 15 to bring together former NFL players from around the region to reconnect and network. That event is one of the many methods already in place for former players to connect with each other – a premise on which the Homecoming platform is expanding.

    Many of the Homecoming games will feature stencils on the field and banners in the stadium. For more information and exclusive NFL Films homecoming content, check out http://www.nfl.com/homecoming

      This is what each franchise should be doing but glad NFL is taking the reigns with it. Baseball is more connected as there are 10 times as many games. I would love to see this happen preseason at season ticket events, community events, etc. My best time was when the old stadium was hosting its last game and Craig Morton came into town for some ESPN and Broncos stuff. Got to meet my first football hero.

            Take your Genesis device with incase they name that tasking Kirk Homecoming King over you.

            Yours is the Superior!



            P.S. Buying your wife flowers is never a bad idea.
