We wuz wrong!
Cold, Hard Football Facts for Nov 13, 2007
We reported the other day that Selvin Young was the 10th 100-yard rusher for the Broncos in the Mike Shanahan Era.
Looks like we missed a couple. We thank emailer Dave888259 for setting us straight. Thank goodness we have you people, and thank goodness you people have mindless jobs at the local nuclear power plant that barely merit even cursory attention from you during the workday.
I noticed on your scrolling headline that you stated that Selvin Young is the 10th 100-yard rusher for the Broncos during the Shanahan Era.
That seemed low to me, and it's a slow day at work, so I did a bit of looking. I found 13 100-yard Broncos during Shanahan's tenure, and there might be a couple more, because I couldn't find box scores for anything before 2002, so I was only able to see the high rusher for each game. You probably don't care, but here's the names I found with the date of one 100 yard game for each of them.
- 12/24/95 - Aaron Craver
- 12/10/95 - Glyn Milburn
- 9/13/98 - Terrell Davis
- 12/27/97 - Derek Loville
- 10/7/99 - Olandis Gary
- 9/10/00 - Mike Anderson
- 10/6/02 - Clinton Portis
- 12/21/03 - Quentin Griffin
- 10/10/04 - Reuben Droughns
- 12/12/04 - Tatum Bell
- 10/29/06 - Mike Bell
- 9/9/07 - Travis Henry
- 11/11/07 - Selvin Young
Sorry to waste your time nitpicking, but I figured that if anyone could understand obsessive combing through football stats, it would be you guys.
Love the site, keep up the great work.
CHFF responds: Dave, you really think too highly of us. We don't understand much. We barely understand rudimentary stone chipping tools and fire, let alone big words like "obsessive." But we do know when we've been outwitted.
Just don't let it go to your head. We've been outwitted playing Twister.
