Broncos hire Elway for front office

Jim Harbaugh (left) and John Elway have some issues to discuss (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

The Broncos apparently feel the best way to get to Jim Harbaugh’s heart is for John Elway to be the point man on the possible new hire.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Denver has hired Elway – the legendary Broncos QB – as an executive vice president, and one of his first orders of business is to sit down with Stanford’s coach for a chat to see if he has interest in filling Josh McDaniels’ old post.

Since Elway played at Stanford and will serve as an honorary captain in Monday’s Orange Bowl, there is some connection between the two (as you can see in the picture to the right when they were laughing it up after the Cardinal’s win against Cal in November).

Said Elway on his talk radio show Friday (87.7 The Ticker): "The game is something that's in my blood. It's been there forever. I got involved in the Arena League because I wanted to be close to football and learn that front-office side. It was a great learning experience for me. It got me a chance to be close to the game, even though it was obviously a very different game at a different level.”

The Luck idea is looking better and better.......
not really because Luck can't play defense (at least i dont think he can).
Except he'll go to Carolina oh well,
yep, that's where he goes anyway and you do NOT trade up to get him. Plus, you cant quit on Tim Tebow after 3 games, especially when he almost had a comeback.
just get a defensive player for the love of football. Denver is starting a trend of getting blown out in their last game of the year at home, i like tradition.
they didnt get blown out in this game. They didnt win, but Tebow almost had a comeback and they lost by 6 if i am right, this team NEEDS defense, it's easy to spot. they cant stop the other team, that's a big reason why they lost today.

1st its Harbaugh. Then draft Luck
i do NOT see that. First off, you would HAVE to give up one of those recievers, their 1st and 2nd round picks this year and likely another player too and that's too much for Luck when you have Tebow, whose a first round pick and should be given at least a chance.

I always remember Elway as a whiner- then a car salesman in Denver.  It was fun watching Cal -Berkeley beat  Elways and Stanford in his senior year and all the whining couldn't change the score.  Maybe  Elway can offer a new car at a discount to new players.

Vick was a #1 pick and was projected as the #1 pick while Tebow was projected 2nd or 3rd round by everyone other then McD's, so i don't know that they had exactly the same issues coming out of college. Not to mention Vick has a cannon of an arm and is faster then Tebow, it's not just his release in question but also his arm.  He had a decent game against Houstons last ranked defense, we'll see how he does against a solid defense today. Orton did throw for 4,000 yards, not sure the QB was the problem this year.

Former HOF player gets an office job with the team, not all that unusual or significant. I would hope Harbaugh doesn't base his decision on the fact Elway has an office job with the team, but then again who knows what the decisions are being based on in Denver lately.

Sour grapes from all you Tebow haters. whitj 1966 you got to let the hate go Tebow is not a college player anymore. There is way to much being made of his release there have been plenty of QB's with bad releases that found success remember Bernie Kosar not a bad career and nobody had a release worse than that one. Tebow us a fierce tough competitor and will find a way to get it done. They dogged Vick for his release but he used his running ability to offset that so will Tebow. I can't wait to hear you Whiners when Tebow has the Broncos back in the playoffs next year. And besides he has god on his side.
