You have chosen the best team to become a fan of. They started in 1960 in the old AFL. The first game they played that season was also against the Patriots. They came into the NFL when the NFL and AFL merged in 1970. Their first superbowl appearance came after the 1977 season where they were known as the "Cinderella" story, and the "Orange Crush" defense became known. Tom Jackson (the ESPN analyst) was a member of that team. They lost to the Cowpies 27-10 in that superbowl. They made the Superbowl 3 times in 4 years from 1987-1990. They lost to the NY Giants, Washington Redskins, and SF 49ers in those games. In 1996 they made it to the Superbowl where they beat the GB Packers, and they made it again after the 1997 season where they beat the Atlanta Falcons. John Elway (the 1st Bronco enshrined in the Hall of Fame) led the team to 5 of those 6 Super Bowl appearances. He retired after the win following the 1997 season where he was named Superbowl MVP.
Hope this info helps you. E mail me if you have anymore questions and I will be happy to answer them for you.
Should Roger Goodell disclose whether the refs for the Broncos-Pats game were atheists?
No that would be illegal just like you can't be discriminated against for a job casue of your religion same type of thing. He can't ask those questions so unless those refs tell us on their own we won't know. However if you think the refs were biaz towards the Pats your grasping at straws to pin it on religion. No the fans don't have a right to know becuase it's none of the fans business what religion they are or aren't the freedoms given to everyone is more important than a damn game.
How do I watch the Broncos game? I'm getting the Patriots...?
I get the Pats/Eagles game, too! The best I can really suggest is watching the nfl.com gamecast thing. It's not the best, but certainly better than nothing! Oh, and you can try justin.tv. It's an ok website...but often laggy!
Why did the Broncos continue to throw the ball at the end of game against the Patriots?
I wondered that myself, that had a lot of people yelling at the tv for those three strange play calls. They kept trying to take advantage of Marshall's size advantage of the corner on that play; but it wasn't working out. Luckily, no interception occurred and they kicked it and that was that.
Who is going to win Sunday's game: Broncos or Patriots?
I'm in Ontario Canada but I've been a Broncos fan since the Orange Crush days. I've been iffy about Tebow but if he beats Brady I'm 100% on his side from now on. Really, last weekend convinced me, his games have been the most entertaining I've seen in years (probably Elway's glory days LOL). I think he can do it, the Pats have a crummy D, Tim and Co are going to be pumped to the moon and the home town crowd will push them over the top. Congratulations on having the most exciting team this year. Have a star.
What channel is the Patriots vs Broncos going to be on? See details below.?
Pats/Broncos will be at the normal time, and on CBS. According to the map at the link below, it will be shown everywhere in the country EXCEPT New York, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Arizona and the Bay Area. All of those places have commitments to other games, except for the Bay Area, which cannot show another game opposite the Raiders home game.
During the Patriots/Broncos game, an official walked up to Tom Brady and congratulated him? Is that weird?
sounds about right. i saw several plays that looked like there was holding on the pats that just did not get called. i could be wrong but it looked like it. after all they changed the rules after he got his knee hurt.
Was the officiating good in the Patriots-Broncos game?
I disagree on the Champ Bailey fumble, there was no good camera angle to confirm it went out of the enzone and not in the field of play. The Samuel/Lelie "defensive" pass intereference...total BS...definately should have been on Lelie if anyone...but certainly...7 pts didn't make a difference anyway with all the turn overs. That being said, no...the officiating was not of the caliber of the playoffs if only based on that BS play alone!
