I doubt the official team will fill out like an actual roster but will likely be much simpler. The Steelers 75th Anniversary team two years ago consisted of 15 offensive players, 16 defensive players and two special teamers. I imagine we'll see something similar. Perhaps - simplifying the process - we'll simply vote on the 25 greatest Broncos of all time. Here would be my (rough) list by position that I'm sure I'll catch a little heat for:

QB John Elway
RB Floyd Little
RB Terrell Davis
WR Rod Smith
WR Haven Moses
WR Lionel Taylor
WR Brandon Marshall
T Gary Zimmerman
G Keith Bishop
C Tom Nalen
TE Shannon Sharpe
TE Riley Odoms
DL Rich Jackson
DL Paul Smith
LB Randy Gradishar
LB Karl Mecklenburg
LB Tom Jackson
LB Simon Fletcher
LB Al Wilson
DB Steve Atwater
DB Dennis Smith
DB Billy Thompson
DB Louis Wright
DB Champ Bailey
K Jason Elam

Brandon Marshall over Eddie Mac? No way.

I sure wish we had the D.

I am guessing that you don't know all the key players that could run for the Broncos 50th anniversary team because you were a Patsy fan up until this Feb.

Gee, that's going to be a tight race at QB and TE.

So is it by position or just players overall

Stranger things have happened.

It is either you were a Patsy fan until this year or your parents bought you your 1st PC 2 years ago and let you go to the InterNEtsWeb.

Ok, here you go...

Its easy to pick two HB/RBs, TD and Little. But if you could only pick one. TD or Little? Tough one.

My heart goes with Floyd.

Anyway TD got 2 SB wins and league MVP, during the Brent Farverer years! He has enough accolades.

I think the same way. Can make an argument either way. But, I am not sure TD has enough accolades. Not until he gets to Canton - which means he will never get enough accolades.
