Broncos playoffs-challenge trivia, day four: Test how big a fan you really are!
Yep, Tim Tebow and the Broncos are in the playoffs, and each day this week, to get you ready for Saturday's showdown with the New England Patriots, we're going to put real fans to the test with brain teasers from the Denver Broncos Trivia Game (the 1985 version, which I just found at a local antique mall).
Warning: They're super-tough, just like the Broncos will need to be. Look below for our fourth batch of questions, then flip the page for answers.
Question 1: "The Broncos' first training camp was held at what college in Colorado?"
Question 2: "Who did John Elway replace as the starting quarterback for the Broncos?"
Question 3: "Who replaced Tom Glassic at left guard for the Broncos when he retired?"
Question 4: "Name the only three Broncos ever with the last name Johnson (before 1985)."
Question 5: "Who is the oldest Broncos player to be included in the Bronco Ring of Fame when it was initiated?"
Answer 1: Colorado School of Mines.
Only later did the Broncos move their training camp to the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley -- or Greality, as locals know it. Now, of course, the team readies for the season at Dove Valley.
Answer 2: Steve Deberg.
Not the worst quarterback in Broncos' history, by any stretch. But also no John Elway.
Answer 3: Keith Bishop.
Bishop was a true Broncos stalwart, protecting quarterbacks, including No. 7, from 1980 to 1989.
Answer 4: Butch, Vance and Charley.
Got to think there have been quite a few Johnsons on the team since then. And no, I'm not using the word as a slang term.
Answer 5: Lionel Taylor.
Taylor played for the Broncos from 1960 to 1966, and was the team's MVP three times, as well as a frequent all-star. He was among the few bright lights during those early dark days.
