  • Mount Crushmore: The Greatest Broncos



    So, what do you guys think? I know we won some Super Bowls with 3 of those 4...but maybe there needs to be more that 4. What about Tom Jackson? Rod Smith? Karl Mecklenburg? Zimmerman?

    I know it was a vote by the people for the people...but I just think its almost sacrilege.

      It's a shame Louis Wright didn't make it. For my money, he's the best defensive player the Broncos have ever had.

        Who could forget about Dennis Smith and Steve Atwater?

          Ah yes; Those two caused a league wide epidemic of alligator arms.

              I am sure I will get flamed for saying this, but I am going to say it anyway. Take Sharpe off and put Rod Smith in his place. If it has to be only four, put people on there that took team before personal gain. Smith was the quintessential team player. Sharpe was not.
              Proud Bronco fan since 1975. I just wish every football player out there today was more like my man Rod Smith. Knowing we will never see him on the field again is very hard. He gave everything he had and left his guts on the field. I will miss him.

                Dude, I 100% agree. It was a giant popularity poll, and it even said so. Shows you who really votes on these things.

                    Did I ever tell you I think you are Mike Shanahan?

                    I think you are.

                      Nope. That's me. And I agree with this "Mastermind" fellow, Shannahan--I mean I--should be up there unless it's players only.

                        This is the end result of a poll conducted by the Rocky Mountain News, and the people in Denver didn't vote Steve Atwater onto this "mountain"? Is there something in the water out there?

                        Glad Shannon got on, anyway. Rod Smith in Shannon's place? No way...

                        EDIT: note the rocks with numbers along the base. Tom Jackson, Rod Smith, Floyd Little, Jason Elam. "Honorable mentions", I guess.

                          I agree with a few of the posters above, Rod deserves to be on there over Sharpe, However im a little biased toward true team players, thats why even though i will get flamed for this i think Eddie Mac deserves to be on there to, of course i also think there should have been more than 4 spaces!

                            Notable missing members are Gary Zimmerman (HOF), Steve Atwater, Ed McCaffrey, Karl Mecklenburg, etc.

                            Glad to see Gradishar remembered. At least one old timer got in. Now we just need to get him and Floyd into the Hall.
