Super Bowl Weak Way Back
Suckers steal a beat, when you know they can't win…
The collective Denver and Colorado media, fans, ticket scalpers, gambling degenerates, and the like have been pining away for the glory days of Bronco football over this Super Bowl Week. Seems like Super Bowl hoopla, endless past Super Bowl highlights on the the tube, and a strange numerology of Donk Super Bowl pasts have jogged our collective memories.
10 years ago, a day that will live forever in Colorado lore, as John Elway helicoptered his way to the Bronco’s first title. "Where were you that day?!" The talk shows have asked the masses (most answers, like that of the SG Crew, have been of the 'I was drunk' variety.)One would have to say that this was Shanny’s best game planning ever, and perhaps the best in SB history (maybe Belichick versus the Rams is up there too.) One thing that stands out among the various interviews commemorating the win this week is the sheer confidence the team had. To a man, the team says they knew they would win the game, and when the offensive line is queried, they sound almost laughable in their confidence. OF NOTE: Howard Griffith could've well been the MVP of this game, his blocking was absolutley devasting throughout the game.
Half the Super Bowls ago, the Broncos held the Giants at bay for a half before wilting in the Rose Bowl to lose their second championship. What stands out in this game is the Giants defense was almost ahead of their time, the speed is just outstanding (coked-out linebackers included.) The Donk OL was nearly helpless in the 2nd half and Kyle Shannahan’s boyfriend’s dad was nearly flawless. The Donks’ defense didn’t help, as they did not adjust to Simms’ passing the entire game. OF NOTE: Mark Bavaro was an absolute beast, he would've thrived in mnay current offenses.
30 years ago, before many of our times, Broncomania was born as the team made their way to the state-of-the-art Super Dome to be throttled by the Cowboys. From the NFL Flims’ highlights, the Broncos’ looked as if the had collectively blew their wads in the two playoff games versus the Steelers and archrival Raiders. The Cowboys looked every part the efficient machine modeled after Coach Landry, while the Broncos of that Super Bowl very well could’ve been the last vestige of the old rag tag AFL. OF NOTE: Craig Morton was old, very old. The Cowboys' made him look even older all day long.
