Like choosing which of your kid’s leftover Halloween candy to pilfer or voting in our annual Snow Angels cover contest, sometimes there’s no wrong answer. Whether its everlasting gobstoppers or ever-loving jaw-droppers, you really can’t miss in either of those two scenarios.

That’s a little how the staff here at Mile High Sports felt when it came time to issue our weekly “Power Rankings” and the editorial calendar called for a list of defenders for the Denver Broncos. Up and down the defensive side of the ball, there’s really no wrong answers when rating the Broncos defensive playmakers.

Coming into the season, we knew Wade Phillips had a plethora of talent at his disposal with two of the best edge rushers in the league and arguably the best cornerback tandem as well, but more than a handful of other players have emerged over the first seven games to make Denver the league’s best defense in total yards, passing yards and scoring.

It was a whopper of a task (candy pun intended), but the brain trust at MHS finally put together what we think is one beauty (Snow Angels pun intended) of a list ranking the Broncos top defensive playmakers.
