Beat me to it ... Rod, Nails, Shanahan and Reeves should all be unanimous imo.

DeusExShanahan, Dortoh and killericon did not vote for Reeves ... what are you guys, infants?

I honestly dont understand why Watson gets so little ****ing love in Bronco land. Put him with Elway during his prime and were talking pure awesomeness

I forgot about Bill Romanowski. I should have put him on the poll. I apologize to all of his fans.

lol, I think AlienBronco was also the only one to vote for Nate Webster in that "what current defenders should we keep" poll.

Atwater is in already, yes.

He was a first-ballot inductee ... his 8 Pro Bowls are a Broncos second all-time to Elway's 9, I believe.

Smith, Nalen, Elam, Wilson, Shanny, and Reeves are no question in my mind. I put Fletcher and Pryce in there as borderlines.

I freaking LOVE Steve Watson ... his 1981, 83 and 84 seasons are all among the Top 10 or 15 Broncos WR seasons ever. But his career stats trail McCaffrey's by a pretty wide margin, and I'm not quite ready to vote McCaffrey in yet.

Dan Reeves should be in the HOF but I am kind of not sure about our ring of fame..maybe he was able to do a lot with very little.

Riley Odoms is more underappreciated. He's one of football's top 12-15 tight ends of all-time. One of his contemporaries (Charlie Sanders) got into the Hall last year with similar numbers. Sanders was also inducted because some believed he changed the position with his height and size. If anybody has watched or seen film of Odoms, he was a physical freak himself. He could play today.
