Once again, deserving Denver Broncos have been snubbed from Pro Football Hall of Fame voting.
It took decades to get Floyd Little in. Years to get Shannon Sharpe in. Will the players below ever get into the HOF?
On Friday, the 17 finalists for the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame class were announced. Not among those finalists were Terrell Davis, John Lynch and Steve Atwater. (Neither was Karl Mecklenburg, but that is understandable.)
@jheath_den He had 2600 yards and 29 TDs in 98 including postseason, while sitting out 8 quarters during the season. AP who?

Down the road, cornerback Champ Bailey will easily walk into the Hall of Fame. Quarterback Peyton Manning will go in (likely as a Colt) and safety Brian Dawkins will be a candidate (like Manning, however, he will be remembered as an Eagle).
But there are seven other former Broncos that should also be given more consideration.

“It’s all about the shoes, man,” Miller said, laughing at his overstatement that ignores his stunning combination of flexibility, speed and strength. “I’m not DRose or anything like that, but I got to get this shoe out there, having people see it. Get all the high school kids wearing it.”
I think if Von Miller and the rest of the Broncos have a big run through the playoffs...
Usually more comfortable in the pocket, Peyton Manning scrambled to his right to avoid pressure.
Usually so accurate, the Denver Broncos quarterback threw a pass across his body - an ill-advised toss he's gotten away with a few times over his career.
This time, he wouldn't.
Late in the first overtime, Manning tried to thread the ball to Brandon Stokley, only to have the...
File this one under creepy. A man in the Denver area is selling panties on Craigslist. According to his listing, they once belonged to his girlfriend, and she had Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas sign them. The listing also refers to them as “stripper panties,” which begs the question is if Thomas signed them while she was wearing them? Pretty impressive if he did...
SHOES TO SACK IN
Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller will be wearing some fresh kicks when his team takes the field against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC playoffs on Saturday.Miller, heralded as one of the top pass rushers in the league, is hoping to use the playoffs as a marketing platform for a pair of specially-designed shoes. Adidas created the lightweight, all-white sneakers especially for...
The Broncos, Patriots and Packers each have a future Hall of Fame Quarterback on their roster. This weekend is going to have some great QB play. The Wildcard round brought us some pretty bad games. The marque quarterbacks were on a bye so this week should be a lot better. Here are the quarterbacks and how they stack-up 1) Manning - Peyton Manning is the MVP of the League...
Sometime after the season is over, Peyton Manning will sit down with Ray Lewis and congratulate him on a job well done.
During Lewis' 17-year career, he redefined his position and cemented himself as one of the most fearsome players in the game.
What Manning hopes to avoid is congratulating Lewis on winning a second Super Bowl.
In what could be the last game for Baltimore...
In the days leading up to what was supposed to be Ray Lewis’ retirement party, Denver and national sports broadcasters had already written off the Baltimore Ravens and anointed the Denver Broncos the Super Bowl champions. In his post game interview, Peyton Manning stated that his team was excited about playing in the AFC Championship [...]
