Has the time finally come for one of the Greatest Broncos in team history? We'll have to wait until February for that answer, but Broncos fans everywhere can celebrate the fact that Floyd Little is one step closer -
Broncos Ring of Fame member, running back Floyd Little, was one of two seniors committee nominees selected to be considered for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2010.
Little and Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau were the two selected and will now be voted on by the full Hall of Fame Board of Selectors February in Miami.
Little was the first No. 1 pick signed by the Broncos and finished his career with 6,323 yards rushing. He led theBroncos in rushing in seven consecutive seasons and led the NFL in rushing in 1971.
There is little doubt LeBeau is going to be a tough out since this seems to be the year he is getting a lot of support, both for his career as a player and as a coach. Flat out, LeBeau deserves to be there. So does Little.
A huge tip of the MHR cap to the MHR Hall of Fame Committee, and MHR Member Studbucket, for drawing attention to the deserving Broncos still on the outside, looking in.
