    The only other person on your list which should be in the RoF is still playing so it won't happen for a while: Champ.

    Just because we loved people or they were favorites doesn't mean they were important to the success of the franchise.
    I agree with Champ, but I also think Jason Elam and Simon Fletcher are deserving. Also if Manning plays out the majority of his contract and retires with another ring or two it would be hard to justify not adding him.

    If they played for the team, they were a part of the team.

    If a guy played for the Broncos, whether it's 1 year or 20, he is/was a Bronco. By definition, he is/was a Bronco.

    If anything, a Free Agent is MORE of a Bronco than someone drafted, because the Free Agent chose to go there. A draft pick doesn't have the same choice.

    Since years of service to a team don't count, do the years they were with the Broncos contain achievements worthy of a Ring of Fame? That's all that matters.

    In Peyton's case, were he to bring a Super Bowl or two to the Broncos, and break a bunch of records, then he would be a major part of the team's legacy and therefore deserve to go up there. He would be the guy who all but brought some of the greatest memories to the franchise you love.

    If any of the guys on that list did that in a short time (or a long time), then they should be on there too.

    Staying with OP, I would like to see Jason Elam.

    Why?
    Spent 15 of his 17 years in the NFL with the Broncos.
    2x SB Champ
    Tied for Longest Field Goal in NFL History
    Most Points Scored by one player for one team in NFL History.

    He retired in 2010, so he should be eligible to go in 2015.

    When people think of John Lynch,they are talking about the guy that played most of his career in Tampa....Im grateful he played at a high level when we was here but at the same time,he's not a Bronco...

    If they do put him in the Ring of Fame,they better put the "Three Amigos" in before him,because they deserve it more than him....

    Simon Fletcher.

    He was one of the most underrated pass rushers of his time.

    Why Gradishar wasn't on the list would be Question #1? With that said Eddy Mac took more hits for the team than anyone else on that list in my recent memory. He played with more heart than most teams collectively in some recent (non Broncos) games I've watched in the last few months.

    Champ will get his in time and so will many others on this very deserving list. The Barrel man was a notable fan but ROF is a bit of a stretch, Don'tcha think?
