Tales from the Denver Broncos Sideline - A Collection of the Greatest Broncos Stories Ever Told
Publisher: Sports Publishing
Inside stories of the NFL team’s memorable moments, colorful characters, outstanding players, and championship seasons: “Fascinating and informative.” —Midwest Book Review
Beginning with the franchise’s origins as a charter member of the American Football League in 1960, Andrew Mason takes us on a journey that includes a decade of Bronco futility, the AFL-NFL merger, and the team’s first-ever playoff appearance in 1977, when they went all the way to the Super Bowl. Since then, the Denver Broncos have become one of the NFL’s most consistent success stories, with just six losing seasons over thirty-five years.
Mason mines the team’s rich history for stories that are revealing, moving, and often hilarious. Examples from the first ten years are “the worst uniforms ever,” the arrival of Lou Saban and Floyd Little, and the story of “Marlin the Magician.” The 70s brought John Ralston, the 3-4 Orange Crush defense, the Miracle of ’77, and wild man Lyle Alzado. John Elway took the Broncos through the 80s and 90s, “The Drive,” five Super Bowls, two championships, and “the greatest walk off ever.” Fans are treated to the “ups, downs, and frowns” of Jay Cutler, the Tebow “miracles,” and the second coming of Peyton Manning. Tales from the Denver Broncos Sideline gives us an inside look at Mile High Football’s peaks, valleys, and everything in between.
