    Morton.

    If Plummer goes to the Superbowl, then I'd have to choose Jake.

      Intresting. I think I'd have to agree. I just keep bouncing Johnson & Morton back and forth.

        I've really only seen Greisie and Plummer so I got to say Plummer.

          Morton. Plummer needs a few more years with some playoff success before I put him higher.
          Where does the abuse of end? Where?

            After Elway, the best QB might have been Tripucka. However, because of that pathetic bunch he had to try to lead, he will never be recognized for much. Beyond Tripucka, Morton is the only QB to lead us to the Super Bowl.

            But I will have to say Tripucka because, were it not for him, we would not have the Denver Broncos, as we know them, today. He was the glue that held them together in their first years.

            IMHO.

              I only saw Elway Griese and Plummer play, so I gotta go with PLummer.


              I misread the thread thought it was from every QB and was gonna say Peyton Manning, so I accidently voted other.

                  My Bronco knowledge really starts in '85, since I was first an Elway fan, and then a Bronco fan. Since Elway, it has to be Jake. I don't know enough about who came first to compare Jake to Morton and others.

                    I didn't see Tripuka play, so I won't/can't include him.

                    I would take either Jake or Charley Johnson over Morton, but that one season of Morton's is hard to deny.

                    I'd rank it something like this, ommiting Tripuka:
                    Elway
                    Plummer
                    Johnson
                    Morton
                    Deberg
                    Kubiak
                    Weese (I just really like the guy, RIP)

                    And let's have an asterick for Marlin Briscoe, the first black QB in the modern era.

                      That's certainly understandable regarding Tripucka, and I commend you for withholding comment about an issue unfamiliar to you. That is something I have not always seen from others on this board.

                      Regarding Briscoe, the only thing he had going for him as a QB was that he indeed was the first black to play the position professionally. However, as a QB, he was miserable. It was good for his career that his coaches saw a WR in him, because he became one of the best. Just not for us.

                        I'd have to say Plummer so far just on this seasons preformance alone. Bubby Brister would be my first choice but he ain't on the list, plus he was a backup. Griese sucked and Morton didn't really impress me. Of coarse there will never be another Elway.

                          Well someone I might feel sorry for Deburg. Everywhere he went a HOF QB came along. He went to the 49ers and Montana came along, he went to Denver and Elway came along, he went to Tampa Bay and then Steve Young came along.

                            Of the QBs listed, Craig Morton.

                              My vote goes to Tripucka. He was a smart, and underrated QB on a not so good team. I like the earlier comment about him as the glue holding the team together for the first seasons.
                              Thanks for the memories, Ed.
