The Denver Broncos have a long history as one of the better teams in the National Football League. The Broncos were a charter member of the old American Football League (AFL) and were not very successful for their first decade in professional football. The Broncos joined the NFL in the 1970 AFL-NFL merger and by the mid-1970s had developed into one of the teams that other teams had to worry about. Like most teams in professional football, the team’s successes are somewhat reflective of who their starting quarterback was at the time.
Here is a look at the best quarterbacks in Denver Broncos history.
By far, the best quarterback that the Denver Broncos have ever had is John Elway. Elway joined the team in the mid-1980s and quickly established himself as one of the most successful quarterbacks in the league. He was the primary starting quarterback for the team from 1983 ufabet เว็บตรงทางเข้า through the 1998 season, never playing for any other franchise. He retired from the league holding every significant team quarterback record in the Broncos record book including most career completions, most career attempts, most passing yards, most touchdown passes, and more. He also held many single season team passing records including most touchdown passes in one season. John Elway took the Broncos to five Super Bowls as their quarterback, losing the first three before winning back to back titles in his last two years in the league. During his career, Elway would be named the league MVP once, the Super Bowl MVP once, and would also be a nine time Pro Bowler.
