          Well we know none of the '97 Broncos could start for this team as they're just way too old now.

            Are you talking about the second Super Bowl team?

            If so,

            DRC is probably just as good as Crockett or Gordon, if not better. Darius Johnston had two picks in the Super Bowl, but Haris is probably better. And Von would be the best player on the Defense if he wasn't fat and they used him right; maybe slide Romo to MLB and Von takes Cadrez's spot.

            The offense is where it gets real tricky. QB. Nope I'm not going to entertain it. You could find some way to get Clady and Vasquez to start for that team. But I'm not sure you could take the WRs off the field considering the offense they ran. They blocked like beasts.

            Special teams, I'll take both their kickers now, but Darien Gordon gets a huge nod over Holliday. I don't remember ever being terrified with Gordon back there.

              Second thought, give me Elam over Prater. I would just be more comfortable with Elam with the game on the line.

                Elway
                TD
                Rod Smith
                McCaffrey
                Sharpe
                Zimmerman
                Schlereth
                Nalen
                Atwater
                Neil Smith

                I'd take the above over respective present starters in a hot minute.

                    Tony Jones and Howard Griffith were both pro bowlers and dont forget about Alfred williams, Romo, Traylor, Aldridge, Braxton

                            Prater is clutch. He's as good as there's ever been with the game on the line.

                            PRATER AT A GLANCE:
                            • A seventh-year kicker who ranks first in franchise history in field goal accuracy having converted 134-of-163 (.822) attempts in his first six seasons with the Broncos.
                            • Converted 45-of-48 (.938) career field goals in the fourth quarter in addition to connecting on all four of his attempts in overtime.
                            • Set an NFL record with a 64-yard filed goal vs. Tennessee (12/8/13).
                            • Owns the best field goal percentage from 50+ yards (.769/ 20-of-26) in league history among players who started their career after 1970 (min. 20 att.)
                            • Owns four AFC Special Teams Player of the Week awards (2008, ‘09, ‘11, ‘12) and two AFC Special Teams Player of the Month honors (Sept. ‘09, Dec./Jan. ‘11) for his NFL career.
                            • Set a franchise kicker record with 133 points scored (26/32 FGs, 55/55 PATs) and led the NFL with 65 touchbacks on kickoffs in 2012.
                            • Delivered four game-winning field goals on the last play of the game in 2011 (3 in OT, 1 on last play of regulation) to tie for the second most in a single season in NFL history.
                            • Joined Mike Vanderjagt as the only two players in NFL history to kick a 50+yard field goal with less than a minute remaining in regulation to force overtime in addition to converting a 50+yard game-winning field goal in overtime with his performance vs. Chicago (12/11/11).
                            • Made 16-of-18 field goals in 2010 to represent the second-highest single-season field goal percentage (.889) in team history (min. 10 att.).
                            • Converted 18 consecutive field goal attempts, spanning the last eight games in 2009 and the first six contests in 2010, to represent the third-longest such streak in Broncos history.
                            • Tied the Broncos’ single-season record and ranked fourth in the NFL with five 50-yard field goals, including a career-long 56-yarder as well as two 50-yarders in one game, in 2008.

                              Hmm...

                              1997 Offense:
                              Elway
                              Davis
                              Griffith
                              Smith
                              McCaffrey
                              Sharpe
                              Zimmerman
                              Schlereth
                              Nalen
                              Habib
                              Jones

                              2013
                              Manning
                              Moreno
                              Thomas
                              Decker
                              Welker
                              Thomas
                              Clark
                              Beadles
                              Ramirez
                              Vasquez
                              Franklin

                              Different eras. Different base offenses. Plus I am horribly biased, and that 1997 team was pretty ****ing awesome. So no real change.

                              1997 Defense
                              Smith
                              Traylor
                              Lodish
                              Williams
                              Mobley
                              Aldridge
                              Romo
                              Crockett
                              Gordon
                              Atwater
                              Braxton

                              2013 Defense

                              Wolfe
                              Knighton
                              Unrein
                              Phillips/Ayers
                              Travathan
                              Woodyard
                              Miller
                              DRC
                              Webster
                              Boldin
                              Ihenacho

                              Defense is a little bit easier. Von for Romo (oh, the horror...), DRC for Crockett, Knighton for Lodish. Otherwise I'd stay pat.

                              1997 kicker/punter
                              Rouen
                              Elam

                              2013 K/P
                              Prater
                              Colquitt

                              I'd take both Prater and Colquitt over Elam and Rouen.

                              It's hard to compare a championship team to the current team until this team wins a title.
