Default What drew Elway back to punching the Broncos clock?

What drew Elway back to punching the Broncos clock?



Work ethic was the first concern.

John Elway always had it in him as a world-champion quarterback, but this was different. This would be work, not play. There have been horror stories about the imbalanced life of football coaches and executives. Arrive at the office before summer's dawn. Leave well after the 10 o'clock news.

Elway, meanwhile, had eased into a post-playing period that from a distance appeared idyllic. He had all the money he needed, thanks to an $82.5 million sale of his auto dealerships. Even with the occasional investment hiccup, Elway was afforded a jet-setting lifestyle that could lead him to 18 holes at Cherry Hills one day, 36 the next in Idaho or at Lake Tahoe.

For little other reason than he could. He played enough to be a scratch golfer, enough to legitimately consider taking a crack at the PGA's senior tour.

He was going to leave this life of leisure to become the Broncos' executive vice president of football operations, a position that if performed properly required coffee-to-go for breakfast, lunch at the desk, dinner with Leno or Letterman?

Well, here's something that may stun doubting NFL insiders: Elway has watched film of all 300-plus players who are candidates for the upcoming NFL draft. Much has been made about how Elway has closely observed quarterbacks such as Cam Newton, Blaine Gabbert, Jake Locker, Ryan Mallett and Colin Kaepernick.

But that was labor-love stuff. Elway also has watched film of pulling guards, a tackle's drop- step, a linebacker's ability to attack downhill as well as drop into space.

In short, Elway has been working.

John has always been considered the savior of the Broncos...he did it as a player, and figures the team needed him again as an executive.

To a Raiderette no less. Old enough to have been cheering towards the end of his player career too. So oddly enough they were probably on the field together at some point before they knew each other.

The day Klis is no longer with the Denver Post will be a day that should be celebrated.

I don't know wasn't Kliss the one that said in the paper that he hoped the lockout would extend so he didn't have to work training camp because he thought it was boring?
