Typical head-up-the-ass ESPN.
I get what you're saying, and don't necessarily disagree. But I understand their argument. They're saying Elway's job was easy because Manning chose Denver. The Seahawks, meanwhile, are having huge success with a rookie QB. It just depends on how you look at it. If you think Elway deserves all the credit for Manning then I suppose you choose Elway. If you think of Elway as more of a beneficiary of Manning choosing Denver then you may choose somebody else. Either way, both organizations have done a great job and only one guy can win the award.
