Denver Broncos executive vice president John Elway said he does not see a single quarterback prospect in this year's NFL Draft to have an impact like many of the 2012 class did in their rookie campaigns.

"No. 2, if it didn't work out with Peyton, we could load up with a guy that we liked and who could be the guy for the next 10, 12 years. And No. 3, if Peyton did come back and play like he did, then Brock could get a great education of how things were supposed to be done as a quarterback, what you had to go through, to see one of the best of all time do it."

Denver Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway said the team will need more than QB Peyton Manning to be considered a Super Bowl favorite this upcoming season.

"As I told (Manning), my job is to get the best quality people around him, the best coaches to give us the opportunity to win a world championship. It's fun to be able to put that puzzle together, but there are so many different pieces to put in a team that has the ability to win a world championship."

"I don't know if we're looking for one like Tim or an ordinary drop-back (passer) or somewhere in between," Elway said. "I think that until we find out the interest out there, it's going to be hard to fill those spots, but I think that when I look at Tim and I look at our offense, we can do it with either one. Whether it be a guy like Tim or more of a drop-back kind of guy, either one is going to be able to fit."

Denver Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway said the medial collateral ligament injury to WR Eric Decker (knee) at the hands of Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison was due to Harrison receiving multiple fines from the NFL for head shots. As a result, Harrison lowered his target when making hits. "The target is now lower," Elway said. "Harrison yesterday, because of the fact that he's been fined so often, really had no other option ... I don't think he intended to hurt Eric. But obviously because of the situations he's been in, he had to go low and stay away from the head. And it ended up costing an MCL sprain for Eric."

Tebow has regressed over the last month. He's completed 30 of 74 passes (40.5 percent) for 439 yards and one touchdown with four interceptions, three lost fumbles and nine sacks during the team's three-game losing streak to end the season.

I think the city's excited about it, the fans are excited about where we are right now. The future is now, and I think the key thing is for us to continue to keep focused on each game coming up and try to win this division and get in the playoffs and see what happens."

Denver Broncos executive vice president John Elway said QB Tim Tebow showed some good signs in his 2011 debut; however, Elway added Tebow has plenty to improve upon moving forward.

Denver Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway indicated that the team may be willing to trade the second overall pick if the salaries given to draft picks remain the same under a new collective bargaining agreement, reports Dave Kreiger, of The Denver Post. "We're in the process of setting that board up. The board is set, but as far as where we're going to go with it, we don't really know until we find out what's going to go on the collective bargaining agreement, because obviously that second pick is an expensive pick if it stays as it is. That's what we're hoping, that the collective bargaining agreement comes together quickly, and then once that comes together we can kind of figure out our philosophy going into this draft. Because where we are, we've got three picks in the top 46 picks, so we've got to make sure those hit, especially that second pick," Elway said.

In my mind, we've got to figure out what we're going to do offensively at that position, and that's why I'm not guaranteeing anybody's going to start."

"You never want to give up your job, you know?" Orton said. "We've worked hard as a unit for a number of months, and you'd like to be able to finish that out with your guys. It's disappointing not to be able to do that." The Broncos' new management team, possibly a new general manager to potentially join John Elway in a newly constructed front office to select a new head coach, will make the decision on Orton's future with the team beyond this season.

Sometimes they are going to love you, sometimes they are going to hate you. But I think it is more or less the same in every city. Sometimes the expectations aren't as high. But if you're the quarterback you're going to have to deal with pressure and expectations."

Bill Williamson, of ESPN.com, reports former Denver Broncos QB John Elway wrote in a column for the Sporting News that Oakland Raiders QB JaMarcus Russell's best chance to succeed in the NFL is to get out of Oakland. "JaMarcus Russell's only chance at NFL success is to get out of Oakland. OK, maybe that's harsh. But we all know it's his best chance at success," Elway said. Elway went on to criticize managing general partner Al Davis. "The fastest way to ruin a quarterback is to put him on a bad team, with a bad line, with no weapons, with no continuity in the coaching staff. That pretty much describes the current Raiders. The game has passed Al Davis by, and he's the only one who doesn't know it. Every time the Raiders get a good coach - Mike Shanahan, Jon Gruden, Norv Turner, etc. - who doesn't buy into Al's outdated program, he fires him."
Thu, 10 Apr 2008 11:19:15 -0700

"Personally, I would've done it to him. Even though I tried to settle things in the press, looking back over the years, it hasn't been the right way to do it."

Kaiser argued that Bowlen violated the sales' agreement by offering former Broncos QB John Elway a share of the team.

Kaiser has contended several times that Bowlen triggered a buyback provision in their sales contract that would have allowed Kaiser the right of first refusal when it comes to selling a portion of the team.

But listen, it's easy for me to draw that conclusion, since I'm not making the call. But personally, it's just not something I would do. I think there is potential there to poison some things."

Beasley of BaltimoreRavens.com. "There have been a lot of mistakes in this league," said Fassel. "Steve Young, a young quarterback in Tampa Bay, and they ran him out of town. 'He's no-good, can't play in this league.' Now he's a Hall of Famer with the 49ers. Brett Favre was traded away from Atlanta. They had given up on him. Shipped him off to Green Bay. John Elway – nobody knows this – but they tried to trade him after his second year. Jim Plunkett – ran out of New England, takes Oakland to the Super Bowl."
