There's really not much behind the Denver Broncos name historically speaking. A "name-the-team" contest was held, and for whatever reason the monicker "Broncos" came out victorious. There really isn't much documented regarding what kind of competition "Broncos" had in the contest, or what some of the other options might have been. I really can't think of a better nickname, mostly because I'm so used to calling them the Denver Broncos. Good enough reason I guess.
