Elway, a former Stanford star, was on the sideline, although players didn't have much chance to interact.
"He was an honorary captain for a game last year, so he came and talked to us and we got to talk a little bit," Luck said. "Obviously, not as much as I'd like. He was one of the great quarterbacks of all time. He was my hero."
Luck was 9 when Elway retired, so I asked if he remembered watching him play.
"Absolutely," he said. "He was the best."
Before taking over the Broncos' front office, Elway expressed similar admiration for Luck as a pro prospect. If he can find a way to bring him to Denver, he may be the first man in NFL history to set up a franchise for two golden eras.



Just thought people would be interested in the quote.

This will help us dream of Luck an then possibly have or hopes dashed when we don't get him. It does give a nice distraction to the Tebow vs Orton threads but I am sure someone will be here telling us Orton sucks and Tebow this and that to derail the Luck Love Fest.

Just what we need

I don't see how KC wins a game this year, though, so Luck will be in the AFCW, just not in Orange.

They have a Pro Bowl QB in Cassel. Believe.

Looks to me like if we even want a chance at Barkley... we'd have to draft in the top 4, depending on how other teams finish record-wise.

Then, we'd have to figure out of Barkley is a true franchise QB. Some say yes, some say no.

We'll win too many games to be in the luck derby, I'd suspect.

This board will suddenly turn to Luck Sucks once Denver doesn't draft him. He'll become the most overrated player in the history of this board....overnight.


Right now, he's the cats eye. Best prospect to ever come out, our savior - Suck for Luck.


Wait until we don't draft him/can't draft him.


Hilarious!

On a good note, Curtis Painter seems to be getting it together. Hopefully he can become a serviceable starting QB for them and get them to 5-11 this year.

Less in the race the better.

no offense, but I doubt Mr. Luck knew much about John Elway until he signed with Stanfford

Why are people on this board so high on Barkley, he is awful. Please god don't let us draft another ****ty USC QB just because he's from USC.

I think the Broncos will win at least 2 more games this season, both of which will be against Kansas City.

That team is horrible.

Bastards, found a way to lose to kc, who would be ahead of us without a win in the division. Sad times.

Watching standings and saying team are bad is really worse. Jax, Seattle, Minn, Philly, Carolina are always or most of time in games.

And you dont have 2 worst teams in your list, Miami and StL. So your comments are worse than how some of these teams are playing
