    He's apparently a Special Ed teacher now, and a high school football coach. Pretty good at it too by all accounts.
    You have to be joking right? Tony Lilly was horrible I could give you several corners who were way better, heck even his teammates. As far as who was the best ever for Denver Louis Wright has to be up there with Champ, along with Willy Brown although he made his name with the Raiders he did play for us.

      Do PPL consider Champ the best corner we have ever had?
      Louis Wright

        Fletcher and Mecklenberg were both drafted as and started their careers in Denver as defensive ends. I could be wrong, but I believe they were both converted from DE to LB under LB coach Mike Nolan.

            Man I totally blew that one Fletcher was one of the greatest. I think people forget he played OLB for us.

              No, I wasn't kidding. I was confusing the two. I meant Louis Wright, but got the name confused. Then I looked Tony Lilly and Louis Wright both up, but I already had it out here and was hoping no one would notice.

              My bad.

                    Whew!!! That was a close one. Glad to see it was an honest mistake. Didn't want to have to break out the Denver vs Washington SB game tape to jog your memory.

                      I never saw Randy Gradishar in action, except for the 1977 AFC Championship game, which I have on DVD, so...yeah, He looked great.
                      I always liked Karl Mecklenburg , John Mobley, Al Wilson, Bill Romanowski, DJ Williams and Ian Gold.

                        Everything I find says they were drafted as LB's. I know Fletch was moved to DE at the end, and Meck played all the possitions on the front 7 for Joe Collier, but they made their bones as LB's.

                        My list goes
                        1. Gradishar ( It shouldn't be up for debate he is probably the 2'nd greatest Bronco)
                        2. Meck (6 time pro bowler and 5 time all pro and the greatest hit in team history. Sorry Atwater it's true)
                        3. Fletch (Could be the most underrated in a long line of underrated Broncos)
                        4. Al Wilson (Underrated because he played at the same time as Ray Lewis, but look how bad the D got after he got hurt.)
                        5. T.J. (Not the biggest or the fastest, but had more heart than adnyboby on the field)
                        Bring Back ORANGE Sunday!!!

                        Tim Tebow combines the intensity of Ray Lewis with the throwing ability of... Ray Lewis.

                          I'd say

                          Randy Gradishar
                          Karl Mecklenburg
                          Al Wilson

                                Champs one of the best ever in football. Louis Wright was good but he's not even top 10 ever.
