It’s a long season and “One in a Row” is a start. We used to say (in the locker room) that you have to take one game at a time because you can’t look past anyone in this league no matter what the other team’s record is on any Sunday.
It wasn’t a pretty win but at the end of the year the score won’t really matter, just the record to get into the playoffs.
Folks, the Kevin Everett injury took my breath away and I’ve said prayers for him ever since. It sounds like he’s making progress, God bless him and his family.
The training staffs on each team reacted quickly and are to be commended, believe me, the “Greek”, (Steve Antonopulos) took care of me on more than one occasion and they’re the best.
I needed a surgery while in Tampa and played until the end of the season with it and came back to Denver to have Dr. McElhinney and Dr. Greenberg (the Broncos doctors at the time) do the surgery because I had so much confidence in them.
It’s RAIDER WEEK so let’s pump up the volume a little and get ready for an ole AFC rival. RAIDER WEEK brings back some memories of games in the Coliseum against Howie Long, Lyle Alzado, Ted Hendricks and the crew.
Now you got me laughing about some of the characters like Matt Millen screaming at us for cutting him and Lester Hayes stuttering at us and trying to pin our receivers at the line or scrimmage. We’d run a G lead, meaning guard pulling around the end on the corner (Lester) to knock his block off. Yep, that was fun stuff!!!
