    Just to break up the stress of the new Head Coach interviews, they are about to name the 15 finalists on the NFL Network. Good luck to all the Broncos nominated this year,

    the only one on that list that I feel better make it is Steve Atwater. there is only one other safety in the league during his career that was on his level and that was Ronnie Lott. Both should have been first ballot. I won't argue with anyone or respond to flaming for my opinion but Champ was highly over rated and if he makes it over Atwater I'll be glad a Bronco made it but pissed because it is debatable if he was even in the top 5 of his position during his playing time. Steve and Ronnie were far and away the Best safeties of their Generation.
    GO BRONCOS AFC Champs!!!

    Gonzalez and Reed are locks. Champ should be, too. I'll be ticked if Law gets in and Bailey doesn't.

    Nothing is certain with the voters, especially when it comes to former Broncos.

    Shannon Sharpe not being first ballot was shameful.

    Champ was not only top 5 during his career, he's top 5 all time. He had good size for a CB and crazy speed. Also a fantastic run defender. I believe he has the record for most pro bowls for a CB with 12. He probably should have won DPOY in 2006.

    Absolute truth right there. Shannon held every record for a Tight end at the time of his retirement, literally paved the way for the new age receiving TEs.

    So 4 of the 8 finalists played some part of their career in Denver. That's some recognition at least.

    Can you imagine if we get 3 Broncos in the HOF?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!! I know we'll probably see two, but just the fact that there's a real chance we could see three is insane!
