    Denver Broncos Ring of Famer made a return visit to our Denver Broncos Quarterback Club luncheon today. Simon entertained the standing room only crowd with new stories AND he cooked a delicious bbq lunch for us!

    Simon was in Houston to see Von Miller break his record for career sacks by a Bronco. "Every year I want to see Bronco records fall, including mine. That means the team is improving," Simon said. Simon related how he worked with Von in Von's rookie year to teach him the subtleties of rushing the passer.

    Simon predicted the Broncos will make a run for the playoffs in 2020. "Drew Lock is a fiery leader, the entire team rallied around him," said Simon.

    After a few remarks Simon took questions from the audience.

    "Why did you pick #73 as your uniform number?"

    I was #82 in high school, #19 in college, and when given a choice of numbers I wanted two that added up to 10 like they did in high school and college. So 73 was the choice.

    "Do you hate the Raiders?"

    I never hated the Raiders. If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't have set the Bronco record for all time sacks!

    "What was your most memorable game?"

    In my rookie year I just played special teams until we played Pittsburgh. Joe Collier decided to go to a four man front that game so he put me in the starting lineup. I ended up with 13 tackles and assists!. After the game a few of the great Bronco defensive players I had admired and now I played with (Tom Jackson, Billy Thompson, and others) came up to my locker room and said, "Way to play like a Bronco, rookie!"

    "Who was the toughest offensive tackle you played against?"

    Gary Zimmerman. He was so athletic and a tough matchup when we played the Vikings. I was glad he was my teammate later in his career.

    "What would your game be like if you played today?

    I promise you I could chase Mahomes butt down if I played today with my speed!

    The luncheon was held at a new and special location for the club - American Legion Post 22 in Northglenn. The Legion were great hosts as they helped with the lunch and told us of the work the Legion does in the community. The QB Club donated one half of the proceeds from their raffle items this day to the worthy causes of the Legion.
