With a shoulder so mangled it required two or three surgeries after he retired, maybe more. #1 for me would be Elway, but Zim isn't that far behind. For me Al Wilson should be higher in the rankings, as well as Shannon Sharpe. Mecklenberg, Atwater, Smith were one powerhouse combination. I can only imagine what might have been had Al been in the 80's mix along with a healthy Zimmerman.
