  • Garafolo: John Elway's preseason tirade set Broncos' course

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/m...-course-012714

    John Elway was steaming as he walked through the doors and into the team meeting. In Denver Broncos cornerback Tony Carter's estimation, Elway was "hotter than fish grease."

    This was not the postseason or even the regular season. It was August, after a 40-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in a preseason game at CenturyLink Field. It was a game that meant nothing in the standings. But to Elway, on that day, it meant everything.

    And so, as several Broncos players told FOX Sports last week, an agitated executive vice president of football operations gave a rare, honest, critical and emotional speech that day to make it clear a performance like that was well below the standards of an organization with its sights on playing into February.

          When a true and respected champion of the ages calls you out, it hits home more loudly and clearly then some rah rah speech among players in a locker room.

            They should show this video to the team before they take the field on Sunday:

              I remember hearing the radio host Art Bell talk about that play. He was routing for Green Bay -- he said when he saw that scramble he knew the Packers were done.

              Vintage Elway.

                Elway is still the man.

                  I wonder what Bubby Brister thinks of the 'meaningless' pre-season

                    Thanks, Jeanine Garafolo! You're pretty stupid about politics, but you write a good football piece.

                      When Mr. Bowlen is ready to step down he should see that Mr. Elway takes over the team. This smooth transition will guarantee the Broncos' dominance in NFL for a few decades.

                          Sounds like John gave the Tough and Competent speech!

                            Nothing my favorite player or now manager does amazes me. His greatness is normal to me.

                            I should change my name to elwaybronco

                              He's still got those QB instincts in him.
