@bkravitz: Talking to colleagues, sounds like Elway will get the nod over Grigson for exec of yr, which I find laughable. But we'll see.

I wonder if Bob Kravits is butt hurt that his meal ticket moved to Denver to play for his former meal ticket?

Yeah, it's laughable that Elway would have a shot at executive of the year... with Denver going from 2-14 to HFA since he was hired with our Top 5 offense and our Top 5 defense.

So because Schneider failed to do what Elway succeeded in (signing Manning) and got lucky with Wilson, he gets the nod over Elway? I don't think so.

My response:
@tesnyde: @bkravitz Elway has developed a top 5 offense and defense, candidates for MVP, DPOY, and #1 seed in AFC. It's a legit resume.

How crazy is it that John Elway's ideal offense for today's NFL is damn near the polar opposite of what he thrived in as a player? Its an interesting insight into how one of the game's best views the current NFL. A young Elway would be the prototype for a spread option offense but while much of the league is buying it hard Elway is looking to go the opposite direction and stick with pocket passers.
Elway has actually said his ideal is a pocket passer with mobility (Andrew Luck or Aaron Rodgers). But you are right that he values pocket passing over mobility if forced to choose.

We never went 2-14.
