John Elway is a BUM!!
Let’s be abundantly clear, we are residents of Colorado and this is a pro Broncos site. Now I sit here asking myself, why have the Broncos fallen from grace so quickly? The answer is simple, John Elway. The ship MUST go down with the captain, so blame can only reside with #7.
Mr. Elway is the true definition of a local icon. He sits atop Colorado folklore with 9 pro bowls and 2 Super Bowl victories. He singlehandedly brought the largest forehead on Earth in Peyton Manning to Denver. Even though the play of Manning suffered his last few years, that move took the Broncos from competitive to elite. Super Bowl 50 arrives and Elway had assembled an unstoppable defensive force that brought another title to our beautiful state. All was right with the world, our hero had saved us, but did he? Lets rewind a minute and go back to the 2012 NFL Draft. It was known that Peyton wasn’t going to last long, so an heir apparent was necessary. The Broncos needed a future QB and this was John Elway’s shining moment. A hall of fame QB with the vision, eye and clout to make this decision. With the 57th pick, the Denver Broncos select, Brock Osweiler…….Huh? Now, fast forward to the 2016 NFL draft. With the 26th pick, the Denver Broncos select, Paxton Lynch…….huh? Is there a conspiracy going on with Elway and 6’7” project QB’s from weaker conferences? Maybe he knows something we don’t, but is it possible that maybe John Elway is terrible at scouting talent? At this point I’m going with the latter and declaring that Elway has no clue what an ideal QB looks like. The time has come for the people to realize that our savior might actually be a bum. Now, as an armchair/keyboard expert, I would say draft Baker Mayfield. He’s got the “it” factor, spark, intangibles that those scrubs from Wyoming, USC and even UCLA don’t have. Yes he’s not 6’7” or the ideal size, but neither is Drew Brees, Russel Wilson or Dak Prescott. All three of those QBs are roughly the same height as Baker, and all three have that spark. Please don’t forget that Denver under the Elway regime drafted both Osweiler and Lynch ahead of Dak and Russell Wilson……FUCK!!!
John Elway put up huge numbers during his career. He gave Pat Bowlen the Hall of Fame ownership career he deserves. I’m simply saying Elway is a BUM when it comes to eyeing fresh talent. He is going to draft a QB, and he is going to blow this again. Go back to your over priced “Elway’s” Steakhouse, your Chevrolet dealership and enjoy the retired life before you Cleveland Steamer yet another draft.
