GARY: A quarter? Try a game. The truth is, I tore the ACL the week before, in the final preseason game.
SI: How do you rush for 80 yards with a torn ACL?
DAVIS: The heart, baby. The heart.
GARY: O.K., here's what happened. Terrell knew I was hurt. He told me he was going to look out for me so I wouldn't have to carry the load. Then he sprains his ankle. I had to go out there. It wasn't that bad, really.
SI: A torn ACL's not that bad?
GARY: Oh, John Elway still doesn't have one. I don't think it's that remarkable.
SI: What's it like bracing for the big hit against, say, a Junior Seau?
ANDERSON: Let's see how big your heart is. You gotta show 'em on the first hit you're going to be there all day. You hit a linebacker, run over him, and you change the momentum. In one play.
GARY: You better make sure you don't say we're running over Seau!
SI: Do you realize how rare it is to have three 1,000-yard backs on the same team in their prime?
