Default Elway to become top executive, buying stake in team

Quote:
Glazer: John Elway will become the top #Broncos executive within next 2 weeks. Discussions ongoing w/ Elway willing to buy stake in team.
should be interesting to see how this works out. he knows football, but he knows what he isnt capable of doing, i dont think he will overstep his bounds or his knowledge

Christ, this is like the CU hire all over again

Can't wait to see what former Bronco is hired as the HC now just so all the fans can get their '97-'98 chubbies and live in the past.

So JE has owned an AFL team, how does that qualify him to be a high level executive in the NFL again?

because a business man and good football mind is coming in as an executive, that makes it a total disaster?

This is a good thing. Having a man that essentially is the Bronco brand as a visible presence within the franchise will help the rebuilding process. Now let's go get a strong GM.

Elway joining Denver was the worst kept secret in the league. Been a foregone conclusion for weeks now ever since Elway and Bowlen having dinner the day McD was fired. Elway always wanted to own a team no suprise there as well. The Bowlen siblings not wanting any part of the team going forward makes this understandable. John gets a minority ownship setting up the transsition to a group driven by Elway owning the Broncos in the future

I knew this was in the works for Elway though...I sure hope John's ready for this because I'd hate to see his name tanished with the keystone cops FO we currently have.

The timing of this makes the Andrew Luck sweepstakes even more interesting.

It might...or might not. I posed the same question a couple weeks ago, and the answer is...we don't know yet.

Bowlen is not long for the ownership role here I think.

I hope this is an indication Elway may become the majority owner and take over for Bowlen. This would be preferable with his competitve nature and seeing how Bowlen handled the team, excellently, when Elway was playing.

I can't imagine even Elway has that kind of money.

Well, that original purchase for a few years back was contested by Kaiser. He won the original case but lost the appeal. So, apparently the transaction held up in court.

...so maybe theyll just do the original transaction since thats already held up in court?

BTW, how old is Kaiser now and why is it a certainty that he could afford buying a significant portion of the shares?

He's John ****ing Elway. That makes him qualified to fly to the moon, command an army, be president, or run a franchise if he wanted.

'Cept not really.

Not that I don't support him having some role in the organization, but just being John Elway doesn't make him qualified for anything but being a HoF QB.

I'm actually hoping that Bowlen thinks Elway will be enough and there will be no temptation to hire Kub's just because he was a Bronco....Now that they have MR. Bronco.

I was willing to give Josh another year. However since they did get rid of him it's MY opinion that they need to blow up the structure we have everyone needs to be held accountable. Includeing our coaches who dont seem to be getting the best out of their players since week 7 last year.

I am usually one of the guys willing to ride things out. However i dont wanna see yet another rebuild coming in 2-3 years. I want it done right and i dont think sanders is the guy. Hes a contract guy. Hes background doesnt come from a scouting stand point.

So keep it up with the super fan thing.
