Denver’s four major pro sports teams have some of the best fans in the world. Colorado is a great sports state, but what makes Denver unique is that fans from all over the Rocky Mountain region claim Denver as their “home team.”

After Super Bowl 50, I have pondered where Peyton Manning should rank among the all-time great Denver athletes.  Here is my conclusion…

*Note – Only the four major pro sports teams (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL were considered.)

  1. John Elway (Broncos)
  2. Terrell Davis (Broncos)
  3. Patrick Roy (Avalanche)
  4. Joe Sakic (Avalanche)
  5. Todd Helton (Rockies)
  6. Peyton Manning (Broncos)
  7. Alex English (Nuggets)
  8. Shannon Sharpe (Broncos)
  9. Peter Forsberg (Avalanche)
  10. Rod Smith (Broncos)

Honorable mentions:

Broncos: Steve Atwater, Randy Gradishar, Gary Zimmerman, Floyd Little, Jason Elam, Champ Bailey, John Lynch.

Avalanche: Adam Foote, Ray Bourque, Milan Hejduk, Rob Blake, Chris Drury,

Rockies: Larry Walker, Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez, Andres Galarraga, Dante Bichette, Vinny Castilla, Nolan Arenado.

Nuggets: Dikembe Mutombo, David Thompson, Carmelo Anthony, Dan Issel
