'97 Broncos offense started 5 Hall-of-Famers (Rod Smith=M.Irvin, TD>Sayers). Nalen and Griffith and maybe Jones played at near-HOF levels that year, leaving Easy Ed, Stink Schlereth and Brian Habib.
Demaryious over Ed? I think not, youngster doesn't block.
Beadles over Stink? No ...
Beadles over Habib? Maybe.
Outside of TD and some oline guys and Sharpe, I think this year's offense is pretty much equal to that 1997 team, and Manning already has a ring where as Elway did not.
