    McDaniels didn't believe in paying a cleaning staff. His nephew, Skeet, came in to pick up after games but mostly just hotboxed Maroney's locker and hung out in the soaking tub. The place was a mess.

    I know you're kind of joking, but some of our best players were Patriots or selected by former Patriots. Elway has been great about not caring who drafted you or where you played before so long as you could play. McDaniels was the one trying to purge the roster of any guy who wasn't Patriot. Dan Koppen Saved our season last year. Welker has been awesome.

    Don't think it's one particular player. Had to get 1) the stink of the Patriots out of there and 2) the culture of losing.

    started a topic Elway: "We had to clean up the locker room."

    Elway: "We had to clean up the locker room."

    Who/what do you think he was referring to? Or does he not really mean anyone/anything specific?

    In his time as the Denver Broncos' chief football decision-maker, John Elway has routinely offered what he believed the first step was to get from the 4-12 team he joined in January of 2011 and the one that will play in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.

    As a player, Elway spent over two decades in locker rooms, either at Stanford or with the Broncos, and he didn't like the one he saw a floor below when he moved into his office three seasons ago.

    "I think, No. 1, we had to clean up the locker room," Elway said. "We had to get the locker room right … and get the right mentality in that locker room because that is really life bread of what the organization is all about. How that locker room fits is the most important thing. If that doesn't fit -- what we're all doing really is not that important because you can't make it work."
