The Broncos Running game


We've been through a lot you and I. In the 26 years I've been doing this job we've seen The Drive, The Broncos win two Super Bowls , The Avalanche win two Stanley Cups , The Buffs win a National Championship, and the Rockies in the World Series. We've seen Denver hosting both the Final and Frozen Fours, two NBA all-star games, the MLB and NHL all-star games the PGA U.S Open, the Grand Prix , the USFL championship game, and the International at Castle Pines. We've seen Elway and Tiger and Melo and Roy and Helton. I could go on and on. Needless to say, these past two decades have had some of the most amazing and memorable moments in Colorado sports history. And I've been able to draw cartoons for all of it. Now how cool and lucky is that? I've been very blessed to be able to draw cartoons for you, the readers of the Rocky Mountain News. As you know by now our paper is up for sale. What it means in the long run I don't know.But I do know this: Denver and the state of Colorado has the greatest sports fans in the world. And I will continue to bring the readers of this paper the very best cartoons I can possibly produce in the days and weeks, and, hopefully, months and years to come. Because the sports fans of Colorado deserve nothing less.

Mt. Crushmore polls are closed. But there's Fun Stuff is on the way
Mt. Crushmore voting has been tallied . Be sure to check out how the voting turned out HERE. I'll be drawing Mt. Crushmore next week and it will be published in the Rocky on Friday, December 12 and available for download on Friday as well. On Monday, December 16 we'll start the Twelve Days of win, lose & Drew, a look back at the year in cartoons that you can vote on. Those twelve cartoons will be in our Saturday, December 20 edition as well. I also hope to have a new animation for you to look at during the holidays. Stay tooned.

    If the Broncos had been playing a decent team, Cutler's INT for a TD would have cost the Broncos dearly. His teammates heep having to bail him out every week it seems.
    A better opponent would have built a much bigger lead, and the game would have been out of hand. Cutler is just awful at making reads.
    Thsi Broncos team will be in and out of the playoffs very quickly.

    Anonymous: I guess the broncos should sign you to make 2 80 and 1 95 yard drives for tds with a running back that was selling cell phones 3 weeks ago? Methinks he bailed himself out very nicely. All QBs make mistakes, its the very good ones who have a short enough memory to keep making gutsy (and accurate) throws to lead the team to victory.

    And, yeah, this VERY YOUNG Broncos team may be in and out of the playoffs quickly, but did anyone think they were gonna win the Super Bowl this year? No. Look out for this team (offensively, at least) for many, many years to come. Cutler, Clady, Marshall, Royal, Scheffler, and Co. will hoist a Lombardi trophy.

    GO BRONCOS!!!!!!! Way to pull out the win when your backs are to the door. Contrary to the people who don't know anything about football on this board (They will remain ANONYMOUS), they have succeeded despite NUMEROUS injuries that would have sidelined most teams. Way to overcome diversity with young players and true grit.

    You all do realize that all one has to do to post here as "Anonymous" is to just not fill in a name, right? Some people just choose not to fill in a name. What's the big deal? You all are making that into a big issue. What do you care if someone puts a name in or not when they post?

    I like the toon but the bottom line, like Sportz Fan wrote, is that the Broncos have found a way to win despite the problems injuries cause. They are VERY lucky that the rest of the division coun't figure out how to play and win but luck will get you far in the NFL. Look at the AFC East... You have 3 team that could win the division but in all likelyhood only one will go the playoffs. I think that luck will be a huge part of deciding that division.

    GO BRONCOS!!!!
