The 2009 NFL season marks the 50th anniversary of the Denver Broncos. To commemorate the past while embracing the future, the franchise is recognizing its community of fans who have been an integral part of Broncos Country during the first 50 seasons.

As a part of the celebration, fans have the opportunity to select their choice for the All-Time Denver Broncos Team through an online voting tool found at (Editor’s note: page is not online yet). Voting begins June 6 and can be completed at Fan Fair or by logging on to any time. Voting concludes Sept. 4.

The rest of the press release can be found after the jump. These are the types of questions and debates that make perfect offseason fodder, and there are a ton to choose from. For instance, who would be the Broncos’ all-time running back? Terrell Davis or Floyd Little. Without Little, the Broncos might not have survived the early years in Denver. Without Davis, the Broncos might not have won two Super Bowls. Voting starts tomorrow, but be sure to give your choices here in the comments.

The players receiving the most fan votes will comprise the 50th Anniversary Team. The resulting team will be honored in person during halftime at the Legacy Game – when the New England Patriots visit INVESCO Field at Mile High on Oct. 11. In addition, one lucky voter will have the opportunity to join the 50th Anniversary Team during this ceremony.

The interactive voting tool features the Broncos’ history and highlights spanning the past 50 seasons through the use of video and additional multimedia. Each player is represented by their respective biography, statistics and photographs. Fans register their team choice through the online tool and become part of shaping the 50th Anniversary Team.

The web application was developed by the Broncos’ online marketing partner, Akavit – the principle digital agency behind and

    so, is it too soon to vote cutler for qb?


  • http://Broncotalk Ben

    I thought tha by far the hardest choice to make was at LB where Tom Jackson, Al Wilson, Randy Gradishar, and Karl Maclenburg were…. I ended up having to leave Jackson out

  • robtink242

    hey can anyone make a list of the 2009 denver broncos.

  • mikebirty

    Yeah Ben, can’t say I was happy about not having al wilson in my team but he’d probably get in if you were fielding an ACTUAL team rather than a fantasy line-up.

    In other News: Brandon Marshall’s trial has been post-poned until August, according to

  • Pete

    I did the EXACT same thing with Line Backer. That was by far the hardest position. I knew that Gradishar and Big Al were there, but then it came down to Mech and Jackson… Mech was too much of a beast to leave off, so I went with him over Tommy. I could have talked myself into picking Jackson, but in the end, Mech is the right choice.

  • Pete

    QB – Elway
    RB – T.D. , Little
    WR – Smich, McCaffrey
    OT – Zimmerman, Lepsis
    OG – Schlereth, Habib
    C – Nalen

    LB – Gradishar, Wiliams, Mecklenburg
    CB – Bailey, Brown
    S – Atwater, Smith
    K – Elam
    P – Rouen
    RET – Gordon

  • Pete

    I should add that I didn’t know you could scroll through players till after I picked my CB’s, hence no Wright.. or it would have been him and Champ.

  • Joe H.

    I can’t believe Rick Upchurch wasn’t on the list WR’s. And I also agree the LB’s were the hardest to decide

  • Dockin

    I just bookmarked this for my future referance.
