Denver Broncos Super Bowl XXXII Ring The funny thing about this review is that I’ll be using the same photo from the offensive list. Super Bowl XXXII was simply an incredible moment in Denver Broncos history, especially for us fans. It wasn’t just a 38 year wait, but four Super Bowl losses – each more embarrassing than the previous. A view around the league that the Broncos were simply a joke, which was evident to the laughable 14 point spread between a 13-3 team and a 12-4 team. If one were unbiased, they’d instantly realize the two teams were evenly matched, but its hard to let go of one’s preconceived notions and the one’s prevalent of the Broncos in the early to mid 90′s was one of contempt. All of this only fed into the pure greatness of this singular moment in Broncos history, which is why two of my #1 spots occurred during this game.

I actually made a mistake when putting this list together, when I inexplicably left “The Fumble” off my final list. Imagine a hand written list of plays, with “The Fumble” at the very top, but slightly left on the margin of the rest of the plays. I think my mind ignored it while I was ordering the list as it saw it as a “Title” and to be ignored. It wasn’t until after the Von Miller post was live that I realized my error, which means I had to cut a play off the list that I felt was higher on my list. Randy Gradishar, during the 1980 season, snatched a ball that was deflected off a players foot and took it 93 yards to the house in a game against the Cleveland Browns.  I wanted Gradishar on my list somewhere, and that play seemed like the most amazing play I could find – considering I was soiling diapers during much of his career.  Unfortunately, he was #4 on my list before I realized “The Drive” was left off the list and was the one that got squeezed out. It is what it is, but I wanted to make it right with my review post.  Enjoy the video! One last note, I will not rush through the Special Teams list as I did on the defensive side of the ball.  I will spend this week researching those plays, so I don’t have any snafu’s like I did with this series. If you have any incredible ST plays, let me know. Those will prove the most difficult to assemble, since almost every big play on ST is pretty awesome.
