Situation: Super Bowl XXXII. 4th down a 6 with victory on the line for 4 time Super Bowl losing franchise Denver Broncos.
The Play: Regular season NFL MVP, Brett Favre, takes a shot for the first down that was thrown a little behind the tight end, enabling John Mobley to knock the pass down and Broncos fans everywhere into euphoria.
It is hard to describe the emotions many of us old timers felt at that moment, but there will be little argument from us about the fact that no single moment in Broncos history ever...

According to Lindsey Jones of the Denver Post, the Broncos have been monitoring the amount of throws quarterback Peyton Manning has been making each practice.
Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said that they haven’t limited the types of throws or the distance of the throws that Manning’s been making.
“His reps will increase as we go,” McCoy said.
“But a four-time MVP made you some QB that we used to know!”, laments the heartbroken Tim Tebow fan, body painted in Denver Broncos colors, singing to a framed picture of John Elway. Well done, Internets. Well done. Gotye’s got nothing on this.
