Eastbay Memory Lane: Terrell Davis Covers August 1999 Issue

words // Brandon Richard

This past Sunday, the Denver Broncos defeated the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game to advance to Super Bowl XLVIII. The game marks Denver’s first trip to the Super Bowl since January 1999, when they beat the Atlanta Falcons to become back-to-back champions.

An integral part of  that roster was running back Terrell Davis, MVP of Super Bowl XXXII and a 100+ yard rusher in both games. Injuries forced Davis into an early retirement, but in a four-year span, he had three 1,000+ yard rushing seasons, a 2,008 yard campaign, was voted 1998 MVP and won two rings. That’s why he’s still up for consideration for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

With the Broncos heading back to the big game, today’s Eastbay Memory Lane takes us back to August 1999, when ‘TD’ covered our Fall Sports issue. It’s a shame we didn’t get to see a full healthy 10-or-so year career play out, but what he accomplished in 7 injury-hit seasons is remarkable. Where does Davis rank among the all-time running backs? Will Knowshon Moreno be able to replicate some of his Super Bowl magic?
