The Drive" is described as one of the most amazing quarterbacking feats in National Football League (NFL) history. Quarterback John Elway of the Denver Broncos found himself on his own two yard line. With little time left on the clock, Elway was able to drive the Broncos ninety-eight yards to tie their game with the Cleveland Browns. The Denver defense stopped the Browns and in two plays following a punt, John Elway got the Broncos in field goal position and they beat the Browns in overtime. Author Mark Stewart provides readers a clear and concise history of the Denver Broncos. Stewart uses text and photographs to explain the success of this less than flamboyant yet steady team. He points out that while not always on top, since the 1970s the Broncos have been a fixture in the playoff picture most years. Stars like John Elway, Karl Mecklenburg, and others are solid, skilled players contributing to the interesting history created in Stewart's book. As with other books in the "Team Spirit" series, the author focuses on the team but includes general information about the sport being discussed. A good addition to any public or school library.
