July 26, 2016

This Pittsburgh Steeler blog is an update on an earlier version from back when I started my quest to create a series of blogs on the history of all 32 NFL teams since the merger. Interrupting my process on working through all teams for two reasons. First, the Steelers are too good of a team […]

It’s fitting Peyton Manning had a say in how the 2015 season came to a close for the Denver Broncos. Since he became a Bronco four seasons ago the Broncos have managed to light up the standings for a regular season record of 50-14. The New England Patriots won 52 in the four years ending […]

The New England Patriots took over the #6 spot in winning percentage of all regular season games played since 1970. Opening the 2015 season they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers and the San Francisco 49ers clobbered the Minnesota Viking team that dropped to #7. A week late the Vikings got past the Detroit Lions but the […]

   Minnesota Vikings are a near-great NFL franchise! From 1970 to 1999 only the 1984 & 1990 teams lost 10 or more games. Since 2000, 6 Viking clubs have lost 10 or more games.  They are holding off the team that has won 4 Super Bowls since the turn of the century in the stat […]

Jumping through hoops is how non-football fans get entertained by Dolphins. The Miami Dolphins football club has barely been visible out of the common seas that make up the NFL regular season. 1992 is the Dolphin’s last appearance in a playoff round past the divisional (a loss to Buffalo Bills in AFC Championship) and 1984 […]

Cleveland Browns Taking To Field In 2015 With Basically Same Look

Cleveland could have gone the fast-buck route and gotten major merchandise sales out of a crazy arena league looking uniform update but they didn’t. There are lots of generations of Cleveland Browns fans that would like to see the Browns as they know them (Some since the 1950’s) take the field for their first ever […]

When Milestones Like This Happen I am A Bronco Fan 1st & Historian 2nd!

I was hoping to have written this last week with a victory over the “Great-Since- 2001” New England Patriots. Instead I have to press on and watch as the Denver Broncos attempt to beat the “horrible-since-2003” Oakland Raiders. As a Bronco fan I can’t feel sorry for the epic collapse of the franchise that held every stat possible over […]

Packers Vs. Dolphins Match-up Highlight of Week 6

If you take notice of uniforms like I do it was an interesting contrast of colors when the  Green Bay Packers went down to face the southern most team in Miami. It’s a pretty obscure inter-conference match-up you don’t see but every four years if you are paying attention.  You know a ton of traveling […]

Steelers Vs. Lions The Blog Part II

October 6, 2014

So I was talking, in part I, about how respectable the NFL franchise in Detroit was prior to the AFL/NFL merger in 1970 while the team in Pittsburgh had no earned mementoes for fans to hang on the bedroom wall. When that fateful 1970 season kicked off for the NFC, Detroit found itself still battling […]

It’s June and that means we are getting closer to having a kickoff in Canton Ohio for the Hall of fame Game that will be a huge help for Bronco fans. Not having the Super Bowl be the last game played in the league will be a step in our recovery. I just picked up […]
