The Broncos showed they were the best defense in the NFL over the course of the 2015 season and the playoffs.
And the man who built them thinks they deserve to be considered among the best of all-time.
During the Broncos victory parade yesterday, executive vice president John Elway made that bold proclamation to adoring fans.
“I know one thing: I wouldn’t want to play them. I’m glad I didn’t have to play them,” Elway said, via the Denver Post. “Obviously, we’re biased in the fact that we rode their coattails all the way to the championship.
“To me, to sit here and say, if you look at it, if you look at the performance in that Super Bowl, they are in the argument to be one of the best ever. It’s hard to say that they’re going to be that, but they’re in the argument, which is a compliment to them.”
Of course, there are other teams which might disagree with Elway, and you can too, down in the comments section.
