Steve Atwater
At present only John Elway is in the only representative in the Football Hall of Fame from their late 90’s back to back Super Bowls.  It should not be forgotten that their defense had a lot to do with those wins and a big part of that Broncos “D’” was Steve Atwater.


Atwater played at Free Safety, but he was far from the traditional Safety.  He was often used as an eight man in the defensive front and as such he racked up a large amount of tackles for a Safety.  Atwater would become the captain of the Bronco’s defense and would help lead them to two Super Bowl wins.

There are few Safeties in the Football Hall of Fame, and the fact that Atwater was not always used in the traditional role will either help or hinder his induction chances.  Which way the meter goes is yet to be determined.
