Default John Elway knows Broncos need more than Peyton Manning

Sounds like there will be a commitment to running the ball in Denver, but are there enough options? Time will tell. If the Broncos can put together a sufficient ground game, Manning will be in position to lead the team to its goal.

That's exactly what Elway communicated to his new quarterback this offseason.

"One guy doesn't win a world championship for you, even though he gives you a hell of a chance to be able to compete," Elway said. "As I told (Manning), my job is to get the best quality people around him, the best coaches to give us the opportunity to win a world championship. It's fun to be able to put that puzzle together, but there are so many different pieces to put in a team that has the ability to win a world championship."

"my job is to get the best quality people around him"

That's why so many people have doubts about the Broncos' draft.

Hey Bronco Rob, I just want to say, great job on posting just a small snippet from the article, with a link, and your own analysis.

I was hard on you before, and you've come a long way. Good job

Elway is right. I think this team has serious roster upgrade needs in order to contend for a Super Bowl.

I think John is talking from experience when he says Manning can't do it on his own

I'm not saying give him a mega deal. A camp invite type of thing. Nothing wrong with kicking the tires on a guy who once played at a pretty high level

Oh I hear what you're saying for sure, I just don't see what he would bring. I would argue about the high level part though, as a former 1st rounder he has 19 sacks in 6 years and has played one season where he started all 16 games. He had decent 1st and 2nd years, I am just not sure it's even worth the camp fodder.

Then again, the "we neeeeeed moooooooaaaaaarrrr DEEEE TEEEESSSS" gang will probably rape my soul shortly also.

john knows better than anyone of us what is needed. but whether he knows enough is still questionable. our last draft was ....um.....um....."special".

if we do that again, then its back to the drawing board. but i think fixing the scouting problem will correct that.

I think Elway took care of that problem when he canned the X factor back in May. N o more reaches for 2rnd rb's w/ the 12th pick,or jeremy Jarmon's in trade for a decent wr. Hopefully that type of BS is now a thing of the past.

Here's thought...let's see how they play before you question whether they should have been selected....

Funny how Elway was an idiot that didn't know anything about running a team when he signed Manning, and traded Tebow, ....now he knows what he's doing cuz he said Broncos need more than Manning...

Funny how some of us knew one player isn't the answer but here we sit. The good news now is that PM is taking us deep into the playoffs this year. Sweet.

Elway has brought us a long way since the day he took the job. At this point he is above criticism from me. Can't wait for the season to start.

If I didn't know better, I'd think you had an inability to reason.

See, sometimes you agree with someone, sometimes you don't. It's poor reasoning to suggest that someone, anyone, must be right in every decision or draft pick.

I don't like this pick. I thought we were in win now mode. This pick told me FO is playing for 2013 and beyond SB run. In 2012 it's a trial run.

I was wrong. Winning 2 titles in 3 years is going to take the sting right off of that.
