Hey Fellow Bronco Fans -

What say we rally together and show Jason what we think. He's undoubtedly the best kicker the Broncos have ever had, and is in my book as one of the best the NFL has ever seen.

Several years ago, prior to their uniform change, I was in Denver for a MNF game against Oakland (the Broncos smoked 'em by the way!) Prior to the game, I went into a Pro-Line shop and was looking to purchase a jersey for the game. Naturally, there were thousands of Elway jerseys, but I was looking for one that was unique. On the bottom of a stack in the back corner of the store, I found a home (orange) #1 Elam jersey -- so I bought it.

After the game, I was making my way through the parking lot behind the south stands at Mile High, and wouldn't you know it, I ran into Jason - himself. He said, "Hey, that's my shirt!" And I said, "Yes, it is." He replied, "I didn't know they were even selling 'em. Where'd you get it?" I told him I purchased it downtown, and he offered to sign it for me.

To make a long story short, I have it framed now, with his autograph showing on the left shoulder.

Jason - you'll always be the #1 toe the Broncos have ever had -- and I have the jersey to prove it.

Broncos and probably overall in my NFL time...

Elam is by far the best kicker the broncos have ever had, and one of the best in NFL history.

Elam is a great kicker! His consistency is excellent and I wouldn't want anyone else to be lining up a game-winning field goal in the clutch. My only criticism of him is why can't he kick off anymore? I know he used to have the leg, but since his back injury, it seems he lost some of his distance off the tee.

I think it's nice for him to not have to kick off anymore. Knorr does a fine job of that. now Elam can focus on breaking his 63 yard record :D

I know he's totally capable of it. I mean, he missed a 70 yarder in pre-game warm-up by about a foot...come on...

Jason Elam in my opinion is the most consistant kicker out there. I believe the Broncos are lucky to have a kicker that has so much heart. YOU ROCK ELAM!!!! We can always count on you :)

Elam is a cool guy. I want to see him break the longest field goal record before he retires. Hope that is a long time from now!!

Jason actually "introduced" me to the Broncos back in the early-90s after coming out of UH. (I live in Hawaii) I've followed him through his career and have four of his jerseys, 1 signed, and a lot more of his stuff. Total pride rushed through me when he kicked the 63-yarder. He also organizes a charity fund for the disabled... www.pointsforprogress.org. He's definately a great guy on and off the field and for that, I salute him and am proud to call him my hero.

I don't know if Jason still has the leg strength to kick a 63 or beyond anymore, but he has performed well for the Broncos and I was glad they were able to keep him.

(even if he missed that 53 yarder at KC)

Go Broncos

Jason Elam, is the best kicker the broncos ever had. If it wasn't for him, we would not have won the broncos vs. steelers game.

THATS WAY COOL MAN. JASON IS TRULY A LIVING LEGEND! I LUV HIM EVEN MORE SINCE HE PLAYED FOR THE COLLEGE OF MY HOME TOWN! THE UNIVERISTY OF HAWAII. HE EVEN SET THE RECORD FOR LONGETS FIELD GOAL-60 LONG YARDS DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD GOAL POST! I GREW UP WATCHING HIM. HE IS A TRUE BRONCO MANIAC! HE PLAYED WITH THE BRONX DURING THE SUPERBOWL IN 1994! MAY THE STAMPEED GO ON!

Elam rocks! I'm on the edge of my seat every time he lines up! I also think it's great that Knorr can do the kick offs and punts. That gives Jason time to concentrate on game winning field goals!

I agree, Elam is my favorite player AND he's the best kicker in the league (though Treadwell and Karlis were okay). I wish Mike would give Jason the chance to BREAK the NFL record instead of being in a tie for life, that would shut up the Janikowski fans!!

It takes a real champion to come out time after time and continue to kick the field goals from anywhere
