  • John Elway article

    Don't know if someone already posted this back in April, but I couldn't find this article through the search engine. It's a good read.

    When he was hired by the Broncos in January of 2011, Elway did not understand a lot about the administrative side of football, and how the NFL worked. He also was not connected in ways people in his position need to be connected. But one thing came naturally to him: leadership.

    "He may not have had the deep down in the trenches experience of football personnel management, but he had the qualities to be the leader and the understanding that if he listened and surrounded himself with good people and let them do their jobs, it wouldn't take him very long to learn," Broncos president Joe Ellis said. "So the learning curve was short and not very steep for John."

    His office is situated in the middle of the Broncos facility between the football wing and the business wing. Elway had the walls to the entryway of his office torn down, and he replaced them with glass walls. This allowed a clear view from one end of the building to the other, and it also enabled everyone to see Elway's work area. His door is literally always open, and frequently an impromptu conversation is taking place there.

      I like the part of the article where Elway says his next goal is to go to the moon.
