    No more than he was just enamored with Vance “the leader of men” Joseph.

    Wade was a leader of men but it’s ok because a reputation is now tarnished and there’s no getting around that!

    True and he could’ve done that earlier in order to extend CHJ but no one forces John’s hand especially CHJ who I guess is a dime a dozen.

    Yep, I'm still steaming over that one. I couldn't believe when we did it.

He should be looking at that second ring and having greats thoughts of John cause without that move, he wouldn't have a second ring.

    Elway has earned some criticism for sure. Heck I'm tired of continuing to draft TE meanwhile our OL is a mess. But John has done some great things too. Getting rid of Fox and hiring Kubes was one of best things he has ever done period. The Denver Broncos won SB 50 because of it. SMH
    Manning really wasn't.. you have to understand what happened midway through 2014 to understand why things trended down for him.
    I believe.

    There is. Matt Russell, director of player personnel, is Elway's chief advisor and VJ is one of his best friends from their time together at CU as both players and coaching assistants. He pushed hard on his friend's behalf with both Elway and Ellis.

    And even if Kyle had been picked, it's likely that Joe Woods would have still been the DC because the FO felt that he was a "rising star", the coach of the No-Fly Zone, and they didn't want to lose him to another team. They figured that with most of the defensive SB roster intact and one of its position coaches in charge, there would be little or no drop off in quality. It was a serious miscalculation obviously --from 20/20 hindsight. The losses of Jackson and Trevathan were too, though the former was probably too expensive and the other too anxious to split to Chicago where he could be mollycoddled by Fox some more.

    Oh yeah, the Vance “the leader of men” thing.

    Worse part for me is that it all seemed to fall into place at just the right time and instead of going with what seemed like a no brainer, hiring Kyle an OC who had just come off a SB run and son of our SB winning HC, we hired a coach with 1 year experience as a coordinator and his D was by far not lights out. It is still a hard pill to swallow. In my book, that will go down as one of Elways worse decisions.
    It Would have been nice if John would have had the patience for Garys staff that you have for John right now.

    Gary’s staff made Trevor Siemian look like a pro bowl quarterback winning nine games in 2016.

    And I’m sure we all remember it clearly, John wanted Brian Pariani and Rick Denison dismissed. Gary was not about to do that and instead it forced Gary to step down himself.

    Gary’s health? Yes, Stress and heart ache caused by John’s demands

    Shaq Barrett has 8 sacks. Elway let him go.

    What is so funny is watching everybody trying to give John credit for bringing in Wade Phillips only after Cincinnati denied him a second interview with Vance Joseph/“the leader of men”.

    If this is true I still wouldn't have taken a loan that you have to pay out over the course of 3 years. Especially on a QB that is looking like he won't be a Bronco in the next year or two.

    Elway gambled that Flacco was going to play at an elite level and figured that stretching his contract out to possibly pay Simmons was the safe move. Now it's all blowing up. He will be forced to play Lock at this rate, which trashes any value Flacco had for trades or future here. Then if Flacco is cut to make way for a future QB, you still have to pay him next year and the year after that in dead cap.

    Ah. Thanks for the ‘splanation Dr. Lynch. Didn’t realize Trevathan was so anxious to be mollycoddled by Fox. Love the word.

    John brought in Gary, Gary chose Wade who was his DC in Houston, and who wouldn't have come here if John didn't choose Gary.

    What's funny is watching people trying to deny Elway any credit for anything good that happened here and assign it to others.
