John Elway will always be considered the best Bronco ever to play, and I agree, but Rod Smith is number two. His work ethic, team first attitude, and feisty leadership did as much as anything to bring two Super Bowls to Denver. We all knew that he wasn’t coming back after the hip surgergy, but we were all hoping he could. His retirement today is sad, but I assure you he will be one of the Broncos best coaches this year.
He could even be head coach someday….
