Out of the many plays I’ve profiled so far, you’ve heard names like John Elway, Champ Bailey, or Steve Atwater, but here is one you probably won’t recognize – Jeremiah Castille. Castille’s heads up individual effort would end up part of NFL lore and drive the Denver Broncos into their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance.
Ernest Byner and the Cleveland Browns were able to go toe to toe with Elway and the Broncos all day long. They were about to tie the game to send it into overtime when another Mile High Magical moment struck an opposing team. The Browns would face the Broncos yet again for a third championship game in 1989, but at the point there was little doubt who would advance to the Super Bowl.
Situation: 1987 AFC Championship Game. Broncos up 38-31 in the waning moments of the game with the Browns knocking on the door.
The Play: Ernest Byner runs the ball and appears to be on the verge of scoring the game tying touchdown, when Jeremiah Castille dive...

2005 was a magical season for the Denver Broncos. It was a perfect storm of desire and talent, along with a little luck, that launched the Broncos to a 13-3 record and a home Divisional Playoff game against the perennial Super Bowl favorite New England Patriots.
Most of us remember the play and the mind-losing experience it caused. The biggest irony...

Ben Garland was an undrafted rookie for the Denver Broncos in 2010, a nose guard at Air Force the Broncos saw as a defensive end in their 3-4 defense. I can distinctly remember scouting Garland in training camp that year and coming away impressed...
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.
Ben Garland slipped out of his football uniform and donned his camouflage fatigues Wednesday for his swearing-in as a member of the Colorado Air National Guard in a ceremony outside the Denver Broncos headquarters.
He's now a public affairs officer whose civilian job is playing defensive tackle.
Garland, a 24-year-old from Grand Junction, Colo., attended the Air Force Academy...
“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.

Bailey is the fifth (and presumably last) Bronco to make the network’s Top 100 Players of 2012 list, joining quarterback Peyton Manning (50th), outside linebacker Von Miller ...
Siri can't talk smack about BroncoTalk.net anymore.
We talk about ourselves about 1/100th as much as some other Broncos blogs out there, but every so often, something happens behind the scenes worth mentioning. Today definitely fits that bill.
BroncoTalk: there’s an app for that.
(It’s your phone’s built-in web browser, pointed at BroncoTalk.net. Still cool).
