Fletcher was primarily a linebacker, no? I don't see who he would replace on that list.

I think Al Wilson makes it ahead of Mecklenburg, too, since they really don't seem to be sticking to positions. Maybe that's just because he is fresher in my mind.

Other notable omissions/honorable mentions off the top of my head: Dennis Smith and Tony Jones. Jones probably didn't play for them long enough, but he is one of the most underrated Broncos in history.

Also, if we're putting FBs on there, Howard Griffith gets the nod, no question.

Darrien Gordon for KR? or am I missing someone...

We needed to run the 4-4 to make that happen. I am the biggest Fletcher homer in the world but those 3 names ahead of him are tough to crack. If he sees this list, he probably knows that he is so under cover that he cant crack his own team's "best of" list. 99 sacks and no probowls. travesty!

Yeah, I was just going by that cool selector site the Broncos had set up where you can make your own team, they had him listed as a DE in that, I was stoked, that way you can get him in there, as well as all our good linebackers.

I listened to this yesterday and it was great-they had Louie Wright, Gary Zimmerman and a few before I started listening on and did some great Interviews-by the way, they said that Louie Wright is now part of Sirius (yay!)-

Anyway, it was great to hear all of the old Broncos-I was impressed with Wright and his takes. They did mention Fletcher but he wasn't included. I did not know that Louie Wright still lived in Denver and that he coaches a High School who's name is the Raiders Hilarious!

Zimmerman now lives in Oregon, and only listens to the Broncos-said he can't hardly listen anymore because his brain says that he wants to play but his body won't let him. Wright follows the Bronco's closely and is disapointed in the Cutler deal. One of the earlier Players works in PR for the Bronco's and said the Marshall thing is overblown (?)-

I listened for 3 or so Hours and it was great to hear from past Broncos-

Dennis Smith stounds out to me, maybe Schlereth at OL. I'm surprised Kragen made the list. I'd probably put Fletcher or Alzado into that DL spot.

Fletcher and Alzado are DEs on the ballot. Kragen needs to be replaced with either Paul Smith or Trevor Pryce if you don't like him.

No Fletcher. I don't know if they are going by position but I don't think so. Fletcher was a LB but also played DE. If not going by exact position I'd kick out Kragen or Chavous before I'd not have Fletcher. Otherwise, nice list.

Yesterday was a great day for a long road trip because it was basicly a Broncos-discussion all day. Per the 50th anniversary team that was made by Zig Fracassi, they (and callers) discussed a few other players too. A recap of the positions throughout the show:

QB: Easiest choice on the team with Elway however they said Craig Morton deserved mention for helping turn the team into a winner.
RB: Said TD has Hall of Fame credentials as does Floyd Little who they mentioned may have saved the franchise in Denver.
WR: Talked about how Lionel Taylor is one of the lesser known great players from the AFL era. Mentioned Ricky Nattiel, Ed McCaffrey and Brandon Marshall all as players who could be considered.
TE: Said Sharpe's numbers make him the choice but Riley Odoms was a great one as well.
OL: Not much discussion.
DL: Said Chavous was picked for consistency while some think Tombstone would've been the best DL of all-time if not for injuries. Considered Fletcher but said he could've also been listed as a LB.
LB: Mentioned Bob Swenson could be considered too.
DB: Talked about Dennis Smith and John Lynch as worth mentioning.
ST: Went with Elam over Turner because of his numbers.

All-in-all is was a good show. Billy Thompson was on and mentioned that Cutler had blown off some public appearances and that he thinks Orton will be a really good QB.

OMG! Morton was mentioned because he turned the team into a winner. That's like saying Trent Dilfer turned the Ravens into a winner.
(I know, here come all the Morton defenders, please)

RB and WR :thumbsup:

True on Tombstone, and Smith should have been included.

Pretty good mix of the old timers and more recent players on this team.

I agree with others on Paul Smith - definitely should be on there instead of Kragen. I remember when the Broncos played Dallas for the first time in 1973 after the game the Cowboys GM said "is this the way Paul Smith plays all the time??" Smith was one of the best dlineman in the game in 73/74.

On the other hand, Tom Glassic was an undersized offensive guard who got the most out of his abilities, but I think Schlereth was a better guard. And I'd put Clady on the team over Ken Lanier.

I think Al Wilson makes it ahead of Mecklenburg, too, since they really don't seem to be sticking to positions. Maybe that's just because he is fresher in my mind.


In 1983, the Denver Broncos drafted Karl Mecklenburg in the 12th round with the 310th pick overall. In spite of his low selection, Mecklenburg went on to become an integral part of the Broncos' Super Bowl teams of the 1980s. He played in six Pro Bowls. His 79.5 sacks is the second highest total in franchise history.

Say what you want about his antics and him going to the Raiders but Lyle Alzado is the the best DE in the history of the team. He was the 2nd most dominant behind Tombstone, but Tombstone only really played 4 1/2 healthy years.

Lyle played 7 full intense, crazed and wild years and made things happen. He got us noticed too.

Barney Chavous was the epitome of a solid veteran contributor but he never dominated or changed a game. Lyle did.

The Dennis Smith Steve Atwater things still kills me. I's cut each guys lawn for free just to shake their hands afterwards. But the Dennis Smith Atwater disparity among fans and radio types is the biggest joke in the history of the team.

Dennis Smith was a better player than Atwater.

When asked who the best Defensive Player he ever played with was, John Elway responded "Dennis Smith".

And Mike Shanahan is also on record calling Smith the toughest player he ever saw.

Atwater was a great Bronco, just not as great as DS49!!

B-Love
06-22-2009, 10:03 PM
Props to Sirius for including Paul Howard. One of the most overlooked players in team history.

Besides Alzado, Howard was the 2nd most prominent weight room guy from that era.

And you'd be hard pressed to fin another player who started 3 or 4 years at a position for 3 different head coaches. Howard started 3 1/2 years for Ralston, 4 years for Red Miller and 5 years for Reeves.

Says alot!!

Something about how it will all come out someday. Is that true or were they just talking about it on their own?

It seems that Thompson would have some inside info considering he works for the organization...

They were talking on their own, Thompson was careful not to trash Cutler too bad. He mentioned how Jay skipped out on appearances but then said he also did work with his foundation so the fanbase was split 50-50 on him. Then he spoke highly of Orton. The hosts inferred the drinking thing a bit and one of them mentioned how Cutler is already turning away fans in Chicago for autographs.

Sorry. You need to re-evaluate your OL, especially at guard. Schlereth is better than either guard. Tony Jones is probably better than Ken Lanier.

Lyle Alzado was an impact player for every year he was a Bronco. Somethings wrong with him not on list.

Agree with you. Wilson was mediocre in coverage, good vs the run. Mecks ability to put his hand on ground and rush, great filling holes, great side line to side line and very good vs TE in coverage.

Jones doesn't get the love he deserves, imo.

Yeah...The Defense has never recovered from the loss of Al Wilson..

His injury was the beginning of the end of OrangeCrush2.0..

I just reread this. This calls for an OMG! OrangeCrush2.0? It was so far from OrangeCrush it would be a -10. Never recovered from the loss of Al Wilson? There wasn't much to recover. Sorry, Wilson and Pryce would have been backups on the Crush.

And I was thinking of Tony Jones. He wasn't here long but his presence on the OL was immense.

I loved Billy Thompson but Goose Gonsoulin belongs in there. So does Al Wilson over Tommy Jackson because he had hardly any help and still went to how many pro bowls? Barney Chavous over Simon Fletcher and Rulon Jones, and Greg Kragen over Alzado? Come on now...Tom Glassic? Give me Keith Bishop instead. I'll also take Clady even with just one great year over Ken Lanier becaue I know he's going to be a fixture in the pro bowl...Tony Jones over Lanier also.

Upchurch was fun to watch. Back in the paleozoic era, when we didn't have highlight shows. You would have to wait till halftime of the Monday Night Football games with Cosell and co.. Upchurch was always killing it, Otis Armstrong as well...ahhh, the 70's, time to go break out my Frampton Comes Alive album...

Have to say if listing Fletcher as a LB he should be in place of Jackson instead of Wilson. Agree if listed as DE, he should be over Chavous.

I've got to defend TJ a bit. With all due respect to Simon Fletcher, who was always underappreciated, Tom Jackson was the heart and soul if one of the best, if not THE BEST, defense ever. TJ was the fire that made the Orange Crush go. He was the intangible that pushed that D from great to epic. "It's OVER fat man!"

I saw an interview about the AFC Championship game in Cleveland. The defense was on the sideliine and TJ felt like the Broncos were lacking some fire. On a play that ended up out of bounds on Denver's sideline TJ grabbed a Browns player and shoved him into a group of Broncos, starting an altercation. This got the adrenaline flowing a little bit and helped fire up a flat Denver team. That's the kind of guy TJ was.

Looks like they held the Mustard, a bad choice.
