Broncos were 13-0 before their first loss. Which was on the last play of the game. other loss was more of a gimme as they were already locked for home field to the Dolphins who they rematched in the playoffs and won 38-3. This team was loaded.... and I mead loaded

They crushed teams and would play back ups a ton Davis was pulled out of a few games or would have broke the season record holder for most yards.

John Elway
Terrell Davis
Shannon Sharpe
Toney Jones
Rod Smith
Tom Nalen

Neil Smith
Alfred Williams
Bill Romonawski
Trevor Pryce

Jason Elam

All those players are HOFers or should be but are getting screwed and not in.

Chris Chelios
Niklas Lidstrom
Dominik Hasek

Those names rival any hockey team ever (except maybe the 83/84 Oilers). They went winless in their last 7 regular season games, but it didnt matter because they had top spot in the league locked up

See here's the thing.

The colorado Avs almost beat them in the conference finals. The Broncos didn't even come close to losing in the playoffs.

One thing is for sure. Those Red Wings teams were loaded. Even after the salary cap was added(which killed the avs) they still dominated.
