Congrats Steve Atwater
 
Just 12 days after he was listed as a candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2013, former Broncos safety Steve Atwater received another honor.

The Ring of Famer is one of six individuals that will be inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame this April.

Atwater, the 20th player to be inducted into the Broncos Ring of Fame in 2005, was a first-round pick in the 1989 NFL Draft. He was voted to a franchise-record tying seven consecutive Pro Bowls, and his eight total Pro Bowl selections are the second most by a player in Broncos history.

What, Rahim the Dream isn't good enough?

Loved S.A. too.

Who would you rather have in there prime.

Dawkins or Atwater

Glad to see Atwater getting his due. I got him to sign my SB XXXII hat at Elway's induction, at the time I told him he would make it some day.

Broncomutt 10-10-2012 01:17 PM

Great to hear, he deserves it.

Eight probowls, 3 SBs, 4 AFCCGs, 2 rings and a reputation as one of the hardest hitting, but clean, players in the game.

Glad we let him retire as a Bronco. Good luck Smiling Assassin.

In this day and age, he'd be suspended by Goodell every game. Ha!

Dexter 10-10-2012 03:11 PM

Does anyone have his full stats? All NFL.com has are interceptions and sacks.. no tackles listed...

I really hope he makes the HoF.

NFLBRONCO 10-10-2012 03:18 PM

Atwater would have been fined right and left in today's wuss league. Yes I'd love a stud not a dud S.

baja 10-10-2012 03:32 PM

Wonder what his fine totals would be if he was playing in today's NFL?

10-10-2012 03:41 PM

Atwater a true class act all around.

You couldn't go wrong with either one, but I'd take Atwater....

He had over 1,000 tackles as a Bronco....

I found that ridiculously hard to believe considering Dawkins played 5 more years than Atwater and only had 900, but I'll damned if Atwater didn't have 1074.

He had 173 in ONE SEASON and he missed a game! That's insane.

Tombstone RJ 10-10-2012 05:52 PM

Atwater is first ballot HoF material IMHO. That being said, he's a Bronco so it will take 20 years, if he gets in at all...

I was really surprised to see he had so few forced fumbles for how ridiculously hard he hit.

Perhaps opposing players knew they'd better have their head on a swivel and sub-consciously exercise better ball protection?

I like how that one guy said he not only made himself a star on the Okoye hit, he diminished Okoye's intimidation factor.

I choose to believe that the only reason Atwater isn't in the hall of fame is because he only played ten years. But then again, DS49 ain't in either.

~Crash~ 10-10-2012 07:06 PM

only... I bet his first ten minuets out of bed is total pain

~Crash~ 10-10-2012 07:09 PM
