Who is the best QB to play in Denver?
The best quarterback to ever play for the Denver Broncos is widely considered to be John Elway. Elway played for the Broncos for 16 seasons (1983-1998) and led the team to five Super Bowl appearances, winning two of them (Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII). He was also a nine-time Pro Bowler and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004. During his career, Elway set multiple records and established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.
Peyton Manning is also considered one of the best quarterbacks to ever play for the Denver Broncos. During his four seasons with the team (2012-2015), Manning set multiple records and established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. He led the Broncos to two Super Bowl appearances, winning Super Bowl 50, and was named the Most Valuable Player of the game.
Manning holds numerous NFL records, including the most touchdown passes in a single season (55), most career touchdown passes (539), and most career passing yards (71,940). He was also a 14-time Pro Bowler and five-time NFL MVP.
While both John Elway and Peyton Manning are considered great quarterbacks, the title of the best quarterback to ever play for the Denver Broncos is subjective and open to debate. Both players had successful careers and made significant contributions to the Broncos’ organization.
