Reviewing The Decade: Year 2000

In 2000, the Broncos finished the season 11-5, second place in the AFC West. The season ended after a Wild Card loss. It was the last year the Broncos would play in Mile High. Even without John Elway the club scored 485 points, which was the second most in the NFL. The defense was strong, with Al Wilson, Trever Price, and Bill Romanowski combining for 20.5 sacks. On the offensive side of the ball, Mike Anderson burst into the spot light. Anderson rushed for 1,487 yards and 15 touchdowns. Brian Griese threw 19 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions. That years draft class was also stellar. 3 main players the Broncos selected were conerback Deltha O'Neal, linebacker Ian Gold, and tailback Mike Anderson. The year 2000 was a good year for the Broncos, but hard times were to come.
