Stokley and Doom still making headlines

The Broncos continue to make (good) headlines despite not ending the season very well.

Seasoned WR Brandon Stokley is up for the "Can't Miss Play of the Year" award for his 87-yard touchdown in Week1 against Cincinnati in the final seconds of the game giving Denver an exciting start to the season.

This is where the Broncos looked like a promising 2009 contender to at least make the playoffs. They started off 6-0 before the season but then crashed and burned heading into the final 10 games of the season. Like you all really wanted to read that.

Anyway, to vote for Stokley's amazing, and I mean AMAZING catch & TD click here.

Voting ends January 25 @ 4pm MST, so hurry!!

And in other good news from Denver, 'Doom'ervil tied for third when a nationwide panel of 50 sportswriters and broadcasters came together to vote for the AP Defensive Player of the Year award.

After a stellar season for the DE, Doom led the league in sacks (17), setting a new Broncos single-season record. His 11 sacks on third downs in 2009 tied for the most in a single season since at least 1991, and became the first Bronco to lead the league in sacks, and joined Indianapolis DE Dwight Freeney as the only two players in history to win a sack title at the NCAA-FBS and NFL levels. He finished the 2009 campaign with 49 tackles, three passes defensed, four forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

Congrats to Doom... had we made a better ending to our season & made the playoffs he would've taken that award. But we'll take what we can get, right?!

Make sure to vote for Stokley. For as little as he was apart of the season, when he did play he made a huge impact on the team's play. He's got class. Gotta say though, when he was yelling at that ref during the Philly game... lol, that had to be the funniest thing I saw all season. Nice to know he means business and he cares enough to let loose on one of the "zebras".


  1. I really think Doom should've got the award. after turning the leagues worst defense into the leagues best pass-rush defense Doom should've gotten it.

  2. Yeah he should've won but ya know they probably didn't name him the winner just b/c the Broncos blew another season. But I totally agree, he should've won it. That many sacks in one season doesn't happen very often.
