  • Top 5 Denver WR of all time

    After consideration here it is:
    1. Rod Smith
    2. Lionel Taylor
    3. Ed McCaffery
    4. Demarius Thomas
    5. Steve Watson

    it hurt me, but I left off Mark Jackson, Vance Johnson, and Haven Moses.

    Your thoughts and opinions?

    I can't argue with that. The amazing thing is that Smith and Watson were UDFAs.

              Rod Smith, DT and Lionel Taylor stand above the rest with their longevity and HOF peaks. Gets tougher after that.

                Just thought DT was such a waste. Never once saw him play hard. Watching him live in person was difficult, very very clearly the laziest person on the field. Had Megatron talent. Was above average half assing it. Disappeared in the Super Bowls. Can’t half ass it when the games get real no matter how good you are.

                Tim Patrick is the opposite of DT. Just a pure football player.

                  Disappeared in the Super Bowls?

                  He was the only one that showed up to play in the loss to Seattle. He had 13 catches for 118 yards and a TD that game.

                      I think some people took away that impression from DT because he was a very laid back individual. Easy going. He played his ass off, but he sometimes looked lackadaisical. He wasn't.

                        DT was hurt all the time and I can’t remember him missing a game after the 2011 Achilles injury. Never saw him play hard, what a joke. How about separating your shoulder and playing through it to have a great game in a SB the rest of your team didn’t show up for.

                          Yeah, I forgot that. He was the only one busting his ass in that game.

                              Plays with a separated shoulder and balls out.


                              But never once played hard.


                              I’ll never understand a portion of this fanbase who bashed DT. To the point on the OM where people never seen him “dive” for a ball….all he did was play hard WHILE injured.

                                Early candidate for worst take in the history of the Orange Huddle.

                                  Pretty much my list but I would swap out Rick Upchurch for Haven Moses. Upchurch was a dynamic punt returner and that was definitely an asset to the team.

                                    Rod Smith and DeMaryius Thomas are head and shoulders above every other WR in Broncos history. Lots of good ones, but only two great ones.

                                    Now that Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick have signed a second contract, can either of them muscle their way into that top tier? I hope so -- they'll need a better QB to get there, though.

                                          Defenses had to plan for DT. This allowed Sanders to eat using his own words. Ed McCaffrey is another guy benefitting from being #2.

                                          Don't forget about Lionel Taylor leading the Broncos in receiving in each of the franchise's first 6 seasons.

                                          Really, it's Rod, DT, Taylor, then everybody else.

                                            All in the 2nd half. Settle up 29-0 just not letting anything over the top. But maybe “disappeared” is not fair.

                                            DT was not clutch. He was good, really good. Just not near what he should have or could have been.

                                              Which is why I had McCaffery 3 and DT 4. But those are almost interchangeable in my book. But Rod and Taylor are definitely 1 and 2.

                                                DT

                                                then it's a tie...

                                                Eddy Mac/Emanuel Sanders/Mark Jackson

                                                Then another tie:
                                                Vance Johnson/Upchurch/Moses/Marshall

                                                Shannon Sharpe stands on his own Pilar as the greatest TE in Broncos history. Next guy down is a tie Julius Thomas/Riley Odom's/Ron Egloff
