    Nope.

    No disrespect to TD and all he did for us, but you can't go retiring every number of every great player.

    MAybe if he went into the hall, but the likelyhood of that is, well, slim to none.

    Ring of Fame but not retired. Where would you draw the line? Atwater? Smith? Sharpe? Nalen? Elam? Look TD was a great player but if we retired all of our greats we'd have no numbers left to play with thus the reason for the ring of fame.

    Absolutely, He is by far one of the best Running backs of all time...

    Everybody on here says maybe if he gets in the hall... Broncos always get snubbed. He belongs in the Hall, his years were beastly, and was one of the highest character guys in the league. Keep him a legend Denver and not just a skid-mark on the wall!!!

    No. Stop retiring jerseys. Jersey numbers were made to be used by players.

    I said no. I love TD, and he was amazing, BUT I don't think he is at the same level as Elway, or Little. We've had a lot of great players that COULD have their jerseys retired. We've only had a couple legends. If we retired every player who has been great for this team we would be running low in a few years.
    Thanks Blondie79!

    I think number 30 shouldn´t be retired, but it should be reserved for especially good players playing for denver. i wouldnt mind if a player like for example champ bailey claimed number 30 if he wanted it.

    I vote no

    Now 27? Atwater's number, and then Darrent's. Retire number 27. Then we wouldn't have to suffer watching scrubs wear it.

    That's what Michigan does with #1. It's only given to WRs who are extremely good. Kind of a cool tradition.

    Dallas does it also. 88 was Drew Pearsons number, and nobody wore it again until Michael Irvin got drafted, now Dez Bryant has it.

    Sharpe retired as the all-time leader among TEs in receptions (815), TD catches (62) and receiving yards (10,060). He's one of five to have a 50-catch season 11 times (Cris Carter, Marvin Harrison, Andre Reed and Jerry Rice). An eight-time Pro Bowler and four-time all pro, he had 19 career games with at least 100 yards receiving. Sharpe held Denver's all-time franchise record for receptions when he retired, but Rod Smith later surpassed him. He is a member of the NFL's 1990s All-Decade Team.

    Notable stats: A three-time Super Bowl winner with Denver ('97, '98) and Baltimore ('00), he established the single-game mark for most receiving yards by a TE with 214, set in 2002.
    Sharpe a great players.... I would put him in the ring of fame... But he shouldn't get his jersey retired.
    Thanx Blondie79 for the sweet Sig....Love it and I will rock it with pride

    In my humle opinion.. Number 27 before anything should have been retired, not only Steve Atwater, but in memory of Darrent Williams.

    7 should be retired because of the man, the legend, John Elway. Need I say more.

    The rest are up for debate, I feel those two numbers should be retired.
