Former Broncos WR Moses has some unfinished business

HAVENMOSES23-- Former Broncos wide receiver Haven Moses, he of the famed M&M Connection on the trailblazing '77 Super Bowl team, hits golf balls at the driving range of Fox Hollow. This is one of the things he is doing to help recover from his stroke. His left side still is significantly affected. RJ Sangosti/ The Denver Post

It happens at the grocery store near his home in the Golden Triangle, on the 16th Street Mall, in his walks on the Cherry Creek bike path, at his favorite golf course, and virtually everywhere Haven Moses goes.Whether they recognize him as the former Broncos wide receiver who with quarterback Craig Morton formed the famed M&M Connection on Denver’s first Super Bowl team, or have no clue who he is, people tend to smile. They give him thumbs-up. They wave him on. Many even say thanks for being an inspiration.”A lot of people continue to have that picture of me in the orange,” Moses said recently over lunch. “That hasn’t diminished any. This is another game for me. They’re cheering for me again. I’m not going to let them down.”Six years after Moses suffered a stroke that severely affected his left side, he’s making a stunning recovery after a long, difficult fight.”People ask me if I have a therapist,” he said. “I’m the therapist. I know my body better than anyone. I just do the things that I know are stretching my limits. When I walk, my pace is so much better than before. Going up stairs can be difficult, but I look for difficult things to do. I have to re-train my brain to work, so I even pick the hardest things to do in reaching and scratching.” For more of this Denver Post story:
