“You want balance; that’s the key to winning a Super Bowl.”
John Elway

John Elway played quarterback for the Denver Broncos for 16 seasons. Elway led the Broncos to five AFC Championships and to two Super Bowl victories. Elway was the MVP of Super Bowl XXXIII John Elway was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection. Elway was the NFL’s MVP in 1987. Elway was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004. These days, John Elway is the Denver Broncos General Manager.

John Elway is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. Elway presently is having a lot of success as an NFL executive. How many other people have done that? Even a casual football fan is aware of Elway’s greatness as a player. I never will forget the 98 yard drive he led the Broncos on against the Cleveland Browns. That propelled the Broncos to the Super Bowl. In Denver, that is still known as, “The Drive”, and took place almost 30 years ago. Elway is in his fifth year as the Broncos General Manager, and he has done an excellent job. Sunday marks the second Super Bowl the Broncos will have played in under his direction as an executive. Elway deserves a great deal of credit for being able to sign Peyton Manning when Peyton was a free agent and was being pursued by several teams. Manning was outstanding two years ago in the march to the Super Bowl. This year, Elway and the Broncos built a team with a superb defense. Larry Bird was one of the greatest players in NBA history and has succeeded as a coach and a GM. We will know by Sunday evening if John Elway will be able to pull of the incredible feat of winning a Super Bowl as a quarterback and as a General Manager.
