In less than three years, Elway has transformed a 4-12 Broncos team he inherited into one that has gone 18-1 in its past 19 regular-season games.

It's not supposed to be this easy. There are NFL general managers who started in the business cutting up video tape, scouting in thedesolate reaches of the South, grinding through waiver-wire rules and administrative regulations, working their way up to the top front-office job, and never came close to achieving this type of success.

Elway pretty much went from Hall of Fame quarterback to architect of the NFL's prohibitive favorite to win it all.

His secret weapon, which he learned at Stanford Business School: the Power Handshake[/URL].

Power handshake is not easy, in fact it's very difficult. You pull his hand into your gut, while pressing your left hand on his upper arm or shoulder to make distance. The result is an image of power and control. John does it quite well, and quite intentionally.

I don't agree with the premise that he basically fell into the job. He pretty much ran the Orange Crush by himself, and was able to bring a championship to Denver. While that wasn't NFL level, the concepts and practices are the same. And his father was a coach and footballs scout. So Elway taking over wasn't as cold Turkey as people think.

Agreed, Crush is serious business, they're sure as heck not junior high. John waited a long time to have a place in the organization. Supposedly he wanted in somewhere all along, but Shanahan wasn't thrilled with the idea.

Think for a minute what he faced in January 2011 when he took over: Coming off an all-time franchise-worst 4-12 record, the debacle of a too-young too-controlling coach, branded as cheaters, with the cupboard as bare as the chiefs trophy case. And he kinda stumbled coming in, with the Tebow-Orton-Tebow thing, but then ... BOOM-BOOM, first two seasons, 2 Division titles. He signed Peyton Manning and a managed to load up the roster in his first 14 months. Pretty cool.

The Chiefs got the number one pick in a very bad year. Fisher does look bad, but then again so do some guys like Milliner.

The Colts got so lucky to turn it around fast like that.

Elway was a fantastic player, he just comes off as a jerk at times.

John Elway is NFL's top executive in 2013 as Broncos bos

In 2013, has any NFL executive done a better job than Elway? No.

While he was often mentioned as executive of the year candidate a year ago after landing Peyton Manning to play quarterback, a compelling case can be made that Elway actually made shrewder personnel moves this season.

The three Denver players most deserving of an invitation to the Pro Bowl are Manning, guard Louis Vasquez and Rodgers- Cromartie. All were brought to town by Elway.

While the fax machine faux pas with pass rusher Elvis Dumervil hogged headlines, Vasquez and Rodgers-Cromartie were part of a free-agent class that also included wide receiver Wes Welker and defensive tackle Terrance Knighton. Where would the Broncos be without those acquisitions?

Nowhere near first place in the AFC with a 12-3 record.

Elway is a boss and is without a doubt the greatest Bronco of all time.
He is further cementing his legacy as he continues to make key personnel moves and make this team better and better.

As a Hall of Fame QB, John Elway gave the Denver Broncos "The Drive", and their only 2 Super Bowl titles.

What he's done for the team since retiring?
That's even more impressive: http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/story/0...iters_battista

John Dorsey got a lot of credit for what was already there in KC.

Some of the crp Del Rio and Elway have gotten about the D is really ignorant. The fact that we are even in the SB with the decimation of our D (and O line) is a tribute both to the depth Elway has created and Del Rio's ability to work with what he has. Von (one of best defensive players in the NFL), Harris (ranked as top CB by PFF), Moore (our best safety), Big Vic (our best d-lineman at the time), Wolfe (our 2nd best d-lineman at the time), Champ (hof cb out for vast majority of season).

Our 2 best D players out for almost all of the year, probably our 3rd best and 5th or 6th best out as well for playoffs....

NE whined about injuries and the MSM joined in the keening. But the Broncos faced at least as many problems. TBH, it is amazing we are in the SB with what has happened to our D and is a tribute to both John and Jack.

You really think we are going to change the Manning offense? I just don't see it.

I dunno about change it, but they definitely need some more physical wide receivers. You pretty much have to go all in on next season
