“You want guys who love to play and hate to lose, and these eight guys we picked this weekend all fall in that category. They want to win. They hate to lose and they’re tough guys, but all good kids. We’re excited about that. It’s an attitude game,and you have to acquire guys with those attitudes. You can’t hope that players will have that. You have to go find those guys with that certain attitude.”~Vance Joseph.
The Broncos’ “Orange Crush” defense allowed only 10.6 points per game during the club’s AFC-Championship season in 1977. That was the best mark in the conference and the third-best mark in the NFL that year.
Cornerback Bradley Roby is 25, Wide Receiver Wes Welker (2013-14) is 36 and Defensive Back Willie West (1964) is 79.
