    Although, I have never seen a first step like Von's- its elite and unique.
    Loved to watch Smith. He was dominating.

    Was just going to post this. And Aikman at 5. A little high in my book. There were some on there that I didn't agree with at all for being too high or too low.

    My favorite thing about that article was the first comment that came up. Some knucklehead Pats fan "Brady's not on this list? This list is stupid" or something along those lines. Read the title numb nuts!

    the Best thing Bradshaw ever did was having to hand Elway that Lombardi trophy.

    Basically, was able to ride a great D then tried to throw daggers. The game has changed a bunch from then til now. Before the west coast offense became popular and changed the idea of passing, being the QB was about throwing down the field.

    His best pass was a deflection.

    I was reading an article last night that essentially any QB pick is a risk, so there is no real reason not to go all in with your wager. It was geared toward teams trying to move up to grab a top prospect, it made me think a little differently about draft philosophy. I tend to be a best talent regardless of position kind of guy, theory being if you don't take the best talent, you're settling for less.

    I for one am excited about the group of young men the Broncos will have access to early in round one... there are just some studs outside of the QB position.
    I absolutely believe that it would be a waste for Denver to move up. No one actually knows which of the top QBs will turn out great.

    His craziest play was a deflection. It wasn’t his best pass. He had 30 other TDs in the postseason-with at least 1 in the 4th quarter of every Super Bowl, a passer rating over 100 in every Super Bowl, and two 4th quarter Super Bowl comebacks. He threw five incompletions against four touchdown passes in 4th quarters of SBs. That’s amazing. His passer rating in the final two Super Bowls was 151.0 and he got the MVP obviously both times.

    maybe the Superbowl final score was part of the reason?

    Elway did win an MVP award.
