Denver Broncos: The Complete Illustrated History
Denver Broncos: The Complete Illustrated History
by Jim Saccomano
Hardcover from MVP Books
ISBN: 0760334765
 
For half a century, the Denver Broncos have provided countless thrills, and a few spills, for their devoted fans. The full story of the Broncos' wild ride-- from a decade of losing seasons to mighty dynastic heights--unfolds in all its guts-and-glory drama in this illustrated history. The first complete, illustrated account of this storied team, the book tells how this charter member of the American Football League struggled through its first seasons before emerging as an elite team in the 1970s. Led by the imposing "Orange Crush" defense and quarterback Craig Morton, the Broncos reached their first Super Bowl in January 1978. The arrival of John Elway in 1983 put the Broncos on the road to dynasty, bringing five Super Bowl appearances and back-to-back championships in the late 1990s. To this day, the team's winning ways draw raucous sellout crowds to Invesco Field at Mile High.

Denver Broncos: The Complete Illustrated History offers a fascinating look at one of football's most beloved teams, from its early years as Denver's only major sports franchise, through legendary on-field moments like "The Drive," to the stars of today. Profiles of star players, season recaps, details of crucial games and plays, and the stories behind the great teams are complemented by hundreds of color and black-and-white images documenting the team's history.

Then Morton Said to Elway: The Best Denver Broncos Stories Ever Told (Book & CD)
by Craig Morton, Adrian Dater
Hardcover from Triumph Books
ISBN: 1600781217

The Denver Broncos were a charter member of the American Football League. They have been a part of the NFL since the AFL and NFL merged in 1970, a period filled with untold moments of happiness and heartache, humor and horror.

"Then Morton Said to Elway..." collects many of the best stories and anecdotes in the history of the Broncos. With a preponderance of the stories covering the Broncos' two most successful eras--the '70s, including the first Super Bowl team, and the Elway years--this book unearths scores of stirring, hilarious, and poignant stories about the best--and worst--personalities and moments over 40-plus years.

Coauthor Craig Morton was the quarterback of the Broncos team that bucked its way to Super Bowl XII. He has witnessed plenty and eagerly shares his best stories from his playing days and his involvement with the Broncos since retirement. Many stories have never been told before; all of them will bring back strong memories of unforgettable times, leavened with humor and good fun.

There's more to Broncos history, of course, than Super Bowl XII team or the Elway years, and Adrian Dater has drilled deep to uncover long-forgotten or never-before-heard stories about the Broncos' early days in the AFL, their run of success in that league, and the up-and-down, but never dull, period since Elway retired.

The Broncos are one of the signature franchises of the American Football Conference and "Then Morton Said to Elway..." does a remarkable job of identifying the best stories that have emerged from this always-fascinating team.

Floyd Little s Tales from the Broncos Sideline
Floyd Little's Tales from the Broncos Sideline
by Floyd Little, Tom Mackie
Hardcover from Sports Publishing LLC
ISBN: 1596700505

Before John Elway, the Denver BroncosÂ' "Franchise" was a tightly wound, 5-foot-10 bowlegged superstar named Floyd Little. Despite his lack of size, Floyd zigzagged his way to a legendary careerÂ--first at Syracuse wearing the famed No. 44 jersey shared by Jim Brown and Ernie Davis, then with the Broncos, piling up Hall of Fame-worthy numbers to finish his career as the NFLÂ's seventh all-time rusher. Through it all, Floyd showed naysayers the only true measure of a man is the size of his pounding heart. His incredible impact during the late Â'60s and early-to-mid-Â'70s saved the franchise from relocation and helped the Broncos become the marquee organization it is today. Buckle your chinstrap, double-tie your shoes, and down a "half-glass of fresh blood" as Floyd Little takes you on a wild ride through his racially charged All-America days in the Â'60s to his Pro Bowl career with the struggling, resilient Broncos. YouÂ'll experience the wrath of Coach Lou SabanÂ's "pink-slip" ways, the humor behind Coach John RalstonÂ's "Dale Carnegie" pregame speeches, and the on- and off-the-field shenanigans of Floyd and his teammates, including Lyle Alzado, Billy Thompson, Tom Jackson, and Cookie Gilchrist. Plus, Floyd enlightens us with tales of famous foes like Dick Butkus, Gale Sayers, Willie Lanier, Hank Stram, John Madden, and those hated Raiders.

Broncos fans will revel in these humorous, behind-the-scenes stories that take the reader back to a time when the NFL was about football and friendships, not million-dollar contracts and end-zone dances.

Td: Dreams in Motion: The Memoirs of the Denver Broncos' Terrell Davis

Dreams In Motion

He is the American Football Conference's rushing champion, the outstanding player who has made NFL history rushing for 2,000 yards in a single season. He is the league's 1998 Most Valuable Player. Now in this deeply honest book, two-time world champion and record-setting Super Bowl XXXII MVP Terrell Davis recounts the inspiring, fascinating story of his life, a tale of adversity and triumph that makes carrying a football seem easy.

From his Pop Warner days, when he was known as "Boss Hogg" to nearly being overlooked by college scouts; from overcoming migraines to surviving a contentious father; from attending a school whose football program folded after he arrived to a difficult intercollegiate sports career; from his battle from sixth string to starting running back for the Broncos his rookie year to becoming one of the NFL's top--and nicest, most likable--players, TD takes you on a journey into the mind and heart of a superstar. Informative, uplifting, TD shows how Terrell has maintained the edge to succeed others have lost and celebrates his unique relationship with the person he calls "my hero," his mother, a remarkable woman who's been beside him through it all.

TD is an extraordinary story--the memoirs of a champion.

In 1996, when Adam Schefter was asked to cowrite Terrell Davis's book, Shefter thought it was a bit premature. After all, Davis had just finished his first year in the NFL. But after Terrell rushed for three touchdowns and 157 yards in the Denver Broncos' Super Bowl XXXII upset victory over the Green Bay Packers, Shefter and Terrell started their work. After spending hundreds of hours with Terrell in an effort to better understand him as a person rather than a player, Shefter wonders why the book wasn't written sooner.

Dreams in Motion certainly captures Davis's gridiron heroics, but more importantly, it focuses on the incredible amount of off-field challenges he's overcome to reach this high level of success. Thanks to his mother's lessons of love, hard work, and high standards, he survives a tough San Diego upbringing, a hard-nosed father, and a football path that derails at almost every level. And despite seemingly less-than-adequate football skills, Davis rises up through the NFL ranks with unwavering resolve, proving the importance of a mother's work. --Ben Tiffany
