Are you worried that there's a chance John Elway is unable to determine quality QB play, or might be unable to identify qualities that lead to success at the position? Do you think there's a chance that you will be able to accurately gauge his abilities in this area?

We're talking about the John Elway that played quarterback for Denver, right?

What. Didn't you think it was weird when the Broncos picked Sly Williams and not everybody was nutting over themselves over the pick.

Well first off we have no proof that Elway can pick a QB our of college. Because none of his college QB's have played a complete game. If playing the game or the position of the game guaranteed anything Dan Marino should have gotten that GM job down in Miami no problem. Matt Millen should have picked the best Linebackers.

I've read this 4 times and I feel stupid because I'm still unclear what point you are going for here.

I believe most were excited since he was a projected top 15 pick that fell to us

I remember McShay saying how great of a pick it was
And he played well last year when he got to start so I am not sure why anyone would be disappointed in the pick
