After last night’s loss, the Broncos are 5-4 heading into a bye week. And the bye week came just in time. Danny Kanell gave a game effort, but it will be good to see Jake Plummer and the full offensive playbook back on the field. They need to go 5-2 to reach 10 wins and they’ve still got games with Oakland, Kansas City, Indianapolis and Green Bay.
Deltha O’Neal seems to be the designated goat – he misplayed a kickoff with 2:49 left to play and he was beat for the winning touchdown. But he also had the punt return TD that put the Broncos ahead. And I’ll always remember the 1999 Big Game – Stanford dominated play, but O’Neal scored two TDs on special teams before Stanford started kicking away from him.
