With one day left in the voting for the top four Broncos of all time to appear on the RMN Mt. Crushmore, it saddens me that Floyd Little will not even make it out of the first round. As of today Elway is rightfully in first place of the offensive players with 24% of the vote. The next three are Terrell Davis with 17%, Shannon Sharp with 16% and Rod Smith with 15%. Little is in fifth place with 10%.I will keep my thoughts to myself regarding the questionable timing of this poll but I will note that the vast majority of comments in the News regarding selection of players supported Little.
Something needs to be done to increase awareness of how important this man was/is to this franchise. The younger fans need to have a sense that this was a different era and running for 1,000 yards was much more like running for 2,000 yards today. The man was simply electrifying every time he touched the ball whether he was running, receiving or returning kicks. He did all three his entire career with no complaint.
I invite comments.
