Default Questions for Broncos Fans...

Too many times, the media always focuses on the big names of any franchise, and there are many players that have played that were Pretty Damn Good in their own right.. So the question is:

Who is a former Broncos player that you want fans of other teams to know about?

I plan to do a show called "The Hall of Very Good" which will include a team by team pick of "Who You Should Know About"

Rich Jackson. He doesn't belong in the "Hall of Very Good" though. He belongs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Simon Fletcher, Rick Upchurch, and Dennis Smith deserve consideration.

I agree with this one! I played high school ball with his son and got the chance to talk football with him throughout my high school and college career.. he's a good man!

Man, there are a lot of guys that could go here pretty well. Tom Nalen, Al Wilson, John Mobley, Simon Fletcher, Steve Atwater, Louis Wright, Gradishar, etc. etc.

But for the best combination of talent and unknown status among the general football fan, I'll go with Dennis Smith. Maybe some mention of the long tradition this franchise has at safety, from Billy Thompson through today with Dawkins.

Gradishar hands down. Fletcher would be next in my book.

I always liked Ray Crocket as our #1 CB during the SB run.
