how the hell is Jamal Lewis on any list

Sapp and Glover over guys like Jamaal Williams, Casey Hampton, Kris Jenkins and Vince Wilfork.

thought Troy Vincent deserved it, but kind of hard to argue with the corners picked.

One Bronco.

There were two who deserved it (Bailey and Nalen).

However, that just goes to show you what a crappy decade that was for Broncos football. The 2000's were the crappiest decade for Broncos football since the 1960's.

Sapp definitely deserves it IMO, guy was dominating. Kris Jenkins does not deserve it. He has been way too up and down IMO.

Kind of funny with Jamal Lewis, guy got 10,000 rushing yards and 62 total touchdowns in the decade, which is pretty solid work there. However, what about Clinton Portis? Geez, a lot more touchdowns playing in less years and only 1,000 less yards.

My previous projections. Bolded are the guys I guessed would make it who didn't.

Guessing the team will be:

Manning/Brady
Tomlinson
Lorenzo Neal
Randy Moss/Owens
Tony Gonzalez
Walter Jones/John Ogden
Faneca/Will Shields
Jeff Saturday

Warren Sapp/Laroi Glover
Jason Taylor/Strahan
Ray Lewis/Derrick Brooks/Keith Brooking
Champ/Law
Dawkins/Lynch

Porter over Brooking, Kreutz over Saturday and Polamalu over Lynch are all crimes, imo.

Sapp was hands down, far and away, undeniably the greatest DL to step onto the field since Reggie White.

Warren Sapp was only great when he wanted to be, and only very rarely dominating. And some of his better years were in the 90's.

Three of those players on defense currently play for the Broncos: Dawkins, Bailey and Law. Awesome...:thumbs:

Depends on how you look at it, I suppose. Obviously, titles and playoff wins are what we long for as fans, but the fact is the Broncos are still one of the most consistent and winning francises in the league.

Here are the regular season win totals since 2000 for every team in the league:

TEAM WINS AVG.
INDIANAPOLIS 115 11.5
NEW ENGLAND 112 11.2
PHILADELPHIA 103 10.3
PITTSBURGH 103 10.3
GREEN BAY 95 9.5
DENVER 93 9.3
BALTIMORE 92 9.2
TENNESSEE 91 9.1
NY GIANTS 88 8.8
SAN DIEGO 85 8.5
ATLANTA 84 8.4
MIAMI 84 8.4
NEW ORLEANS 83 8.3
DALLAS 82 8.2
SEATTLE 82 8.2
CHICAGO 81 8.1
NY JETS 80 8
CAROLINA 79 7.9
TAMPA BAY 79 7.9
JACKSONVILLE 75 7.5
KANSAS CITY 72 7.2
ST. LOUIS 71 7.1
WASHINGTON 70 7
CINCINNATI 69 6.9
SAN FRANCISCO 68 6.8
BUFFALO 66 6.6
ARIZONA 62 6.2
OAKLAND 62 6.2
CLEVELAND 57 5.7
DETROIT 42 4.2
HOUSTON* 42 4.2

Our Broncos were still 6th in the league in total wins and led the division by almost a win per year. That's an awful lot of wins for a team with only one all-decade team member.

I'm more shocked at Alexander. His career was up and down and only a couple of years was he in the top 10 in rushing. Must be those 100 TD's but then again if you're used as a RB and FB you can achieve those types of numbers.

I'm pretty sure that's 'average'. Just check that thread where I was thrown under the bus for saying what this statistic proves.

One playoff win.

You're focusing too much on Denver being the 6th team listed. While it may be .81 wins/year above average....It still represents a decline for Denver as Count has so aptly pointed out.

Thankfully, We will have a rebuilt team to start the new decade.

Broncos winning percentage by decade


.616 - 1980s
.588 - 1990s
.581 - 2000s

Yeah, sounds great except that we didn't really do that. No need to sugarcoat it with meaningless stats.
