    Who has had better Safeties than the Broncos?

    Seriously, think about it, three of the top five safeties all time have played for the Broncos. I never really thought about it until the whole B Dawk might retire stuff this year, crazy.

    Dawkins, Lynch, Atwater. All three known for their physicality. Hopefully we find a younger heir soon

    True, but we also had the best QB to walk the planet.

    Dennis Smith wasn't too shabby either.

    I mean, Polamalu, Reed, Sharper, Lott, and Woodson were all better then BDawk, Lynch, and Atwater.

    I'm not sure if I'd say those guys are top 5 all time safeties...

    My favorite Bronco safety's of all time are S. Atwater and D. Smith. Lynch and Dawkins were great for us but their best years were with their previous teams.

    Maybe Polamalu his better than Lynch but the rest isnt better than the 3 you named


    Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite and furthermore always carry a small snake.

    I'd take Reed over Polamalu any day. But Lott is definitely elite class. Though personally, maybe it's the homer in me, I'd always take Smith over Lott. I thought he was a better overall Safety.

    I would love to see a bit more of a ball hawking safety in Denver-I was hoping Rahim Moore was that guy...

    Atwater, Smith, Lynch and Dawkins are all ass kickers and I love them...but I would not classify them as ball hawks like Palamalu or Reed. I get excited thinking about Bailey at Safety and the thief he could be back there!

    Reed might end up being the best safeties of all time when the book closes on his career. He might not have huge hits like Atwater or Lynch but his play out in space can challenge any safety to ever play the position.
