Brock may end up being a bad pick, who knows. I'm not claiming him to be the next big thing. But I think John Elway, between the Manning signing, the Tebow trade, getting Koppen, getting Holliday, etc. has earned a lot of trust from Bronco fans. I think he should be given some slack. The idea that he put his personal relationships before this team's is so ridiculous it's insane.
Agreed. I've been cautious to jump on the Elway bandwagon before seeing evidence he knows what he's doing in the front office but I do think he knows what he's looking at when he watches a QB play and this kid has the arm, the athleticism and the football IQ to be trusted, not to mention that the iimpact of having your QBOTF sit at Manning's feet is worth a whole lot as opposed to drafting one two years later who wouldn't.
