In fairness Elway fell kind of flat out of the gate. Lining up under the guard, looking lost, he was turning into a punchline.

For years and years I had a Rocky Mountian News that depicted a confused and befuddled Elway mocking him as King John after his rookie year. When Kubiak came in and won a game that year, the media actually had a report joking about a 3 way QB controversy. People were ready to bail on Elway. If they had tried to hold onto DeBerg it could have gotten ugly. This before the internet age.
