Adopt-a-Bronco:
Elway
Default Andrew Luck: Orange Bowl tonight...

I feel like this is a bonus game for us Broncos fans for many reasons.

Andrew Luck plays in the Orange Bowl in about 25 minutes on ESPN.
Stanford plays Virginia Tech

This is a chance to see the much talked about college QB going into this year's draft.
I personally haven't seen the guy play aside from highlight clips.
We should be able to see what could be at stake for us.

Don't get me wrong, I love Tebow and wouldn't mind one bit if we decide to go with him.
I don't want to make this a Tebow vs. Luck thread either.

Just simply a chance to discuss a player that the media wouldn't blame anyone taking even if it means passing on your team most pressing needs.

Elway will be an honorary captain for Stanford in this game and I'm sure he would want to take a final look at Luck and possibly a talk with Harbaugh.

A lot to look forward on this game!
It'll be cool if they (ESPN) elaborate some about Elways presence at this game, his new title with the team, and the fact we're shopping for a headcoach...

I'm waiting for Jim Harabaugh to just impress the crap out of me with brilliant coaching moves, timely shifts in strategic approach, clever nuanced adjustments and inspired motivation driving his young charges to a huge win so I can see what all this fuss is about.

Barring an insane trade up that would doom our defense to remain terrible for several more years, I fail to see how Luck's play affects Broncos fans...

I suppose Harbaugh's coaching might be something to watch. And the scheme he runs as well.

As college QBs? Sure I can theoretically accept that. Doesn't mean he'll be better or even as good as those guys in the NFL.

I mean if we're just comparing guys as college QBs, Tebow > All.

Nope, we need another first round QB on the roster, since they can all play defense. No, wait...

I'm looking forward to seeing him play as well. However, I just can't see how anyone can justify taking 3 QBs in 1st rd since 06. We have to go D, D, and more D. Oh, and throw in a pass catching TE.

I like Tebow as well, but Luck could be the guy.

My point is that if you're gong to quote a college coach saying a guy is better as a college QB than NFL greats when they were in college, then you have to acknowledge that Tebow > pretty much everyone ever as a college QB. I'm trying to point out the inconsistency of what you're getting at.

I understand that. There's no question it's a valid point.
There's aomething in the air about Elway and the Stanford connection I can't shake off yet.

Its a reference. Its a case study. Its a direct reflection of a perspective from
where the rubber meets the road. Bud Foster coached against all those guys. He studied them. He says this guy is better. That's it. It's a hell of a reference and barring massive injury Luck will have his shot.

We all need to pray that it's just baseless paranoia (of which I'm guilty as well), because if we trade up to grab Luck (which will likely take this and next years 1sts and bunch of other resources) Elway and Co. will have made a bigger mistake and done more harm in that one move than McD did with all of his mistakes combined.

The team can win with Tebow if our defense is improved. I really don't see the need to discuss Luck. He is going to go #1 overall.

It's also coming from an opposing coach, and those quotes are often glowing no matter who they are referencing. To me it doesn't mean much. It certainly has little to do with how good he's going to be in NFL. Not that I'm saying he won't be good, just that such a quote is pretty meaningless.
