You don't remember John Elway?

He may be a big part of Broncos history, but he wasn't quite playing yet in '73 and '74. :whistle: The first "name" quarterback was Craig Morton.  Otis Armstrong, Rick Upchurch, Haven Moses, Riley Odoms, Jon Keyworth, Randy Gradishar, Tom Jackson, Billy Thompson, Karl Mecklenburg, Lyle Alzado... see I can rattle off a few more from before the Elway glory years. :smartass:

Lyle Alzado was a Raider too!  Did you hate him when he was playing with them. ;-)

Reminds me of when I met Brad Park, the HoF Hockey player.  He said the best compliment he ever got was a Bruin's fan who said, "When you were with the Rangers, I hated your guts.  Now I love ya."

By the time he left Denver, Alzado was about done anyway.  He was 'roided out.   I had no feelings one way or the other.

Amen.  Any team that is self styled as "America's Team" or any other such appellation that indicates that I'm supposed to be behind them no matter what is an affront to my personal fanaticism.  I'm a "fan" of 2 teams.  They happen to to be the home teams of places I've lived.  Even though I was born and raised in Minnesota, the Vikings are my second team.  The Broncos will be my team until I die.

I moved to Denver in 1973, when the Broncos were only 4 years in the league.  Quarterback was Charlie Johnson and the halfback was Floyd Little - those are the only names I remember - maybe the only ones worth remembering from those days.  I suffered through 4 dreadful Super Bowl losses, a couple of them when it didn't even seem that we belonged in the league, much less in the game.  One of those losses was to the Cowboys.  I will hate them for as long as I root for the Broncos.

Despite that, the Oakland Raiders will always #1 on my hit list.  They are just so easy to dislike.

I would want to forget those ten years in the AFL also if I were a Bronco fan. But I would say  to your chagrin the hated raiders are going to  get out of this rut sooner than later the way I see it. RM is the complete opposite of Al Davis the team has had to operate at abut a 60% salary in order to undo the mess the old man made plus get rid of the underachieving overpaid. Even though they are finally free of the mess  next year and have 50million plus to spend on FA's I see Reggie using all that cash  for depth mainly and maybe 2 marquee players. The raiders are going to be a good team in the next 2-3 years.

    • I’m a fan of the M2… always be one of TM’s best heads.  BUT. Doea the other Titleist driver’s hosel adapter fit the TS4 and vice versa??  If it does you can use the proforce in both heads etc…. 
    • Yup. Have to agree. Can't give up 40+ on the road and expect to win. Would have like to see OSU take more chances down the field. Hats off to Michigan though they were simply better today. It's Georgia's national championship to lose now IMO, I don't think there's any offense left in the playoff picture that will challenge Georgia's defense.
    • Too much so, yes. The body is responsible for the AROUND. The arms are responsible for the UP.
    • Figured since I have this, I may as well post it.   Even though it’s not a good video. Can’t get back far enough.    driver swing is quite a bit more flat.  Probably too much sway rather than turn.    But, I’m really working on speed, and this summer I averaged 278 off the tee with driver and hit 61% fairways.     So, I just don’t think it’s my biggest concern.  I do want to be longer, though.      
    • Day 119: Worked on backswing cupped wrist feel and also transition priority piece. Decided to get the feel of head position change (I call it Rory-ing) first, before working on clubface. I will be playing 18 tomorrow and will pay attention to ball flight to see how I need to adjust palmar flexion amount. Also did pitching/chipping drills from covid-19 practice plan days 6/7.
