    It as amazing to be in Colorado for the 77 season. Everybody talked non stop about the Broncos. You had the freeways to yourself on Sunday afternoon so they say I was never on the road when the Broncos were playing. It was the most fun season ever for me although 97 was close, OK a tie.

    Well, I was 7 years old and knew about the Orange Crush. I know you were old enough for our superbowl teams. As for legos, total bs. You got those fake Lego blocks.

    Oh I remember some heated disagreements with him. About what I have no idea. Although I did agree we needed a pass rush.

    Nope, convo was about DL.

    Yeah, but the implication is that the '05 line is better than ours today (the best since 2005).

    This is the best line I ever remember the Broncos having, and I started following in 1989 (casually) and mid-1990s (fanatically).

    Agreed, let's wait until after the season before we rank this DL with the all-time greats.

    "Shall we have Brunch on the morrow, Kenard?" "Nay, Ebenezer, Abigail will be having her bridge club."
    "Shall we create a central bank that secretly robs the people of their wealth and have to constantly rely on blitzing and smoke and mirrors to get to the quarterback? Bully!"

    I loved that team too. The cover 0 worked all season long until Pittsburgh figured how to exploit it. That team would of got destroyed in the AFC Championship by Indy though. I thought that was the only team keeping Denver from winning it all. Once Pittsburgh did their job I thought it was destiny.
