    The only response I can give you is: Elway played in a different time with different rules. Like... when defenders were actually allowed to play defense.
    Sure that argument would work if OP hadn't posted the video for everyone to see. Elway threw plenty of ducks to wide open receivers. Any more different time/different rules points?

    It really is that easy

      1998 team would blow 2014 team out of the water and very little would be due to Elway.
      The '98 OL and Terrell Davis would be the deciding factor on which team would win.

          That team had grit.

              Del Rio showing his Defense Sharks devouring Seals.

              I think Del Rio is tired of the defense recovering only 2 fumbles so far this year.

                I think we try too hard for a perfect locker Room vs this team needs Nasty added to it.

                  I think we have been too passive is why we only get 2 fumbles. Other teams would move Ware Miller around and rush the QB 95% of the time not us.

                    Elway didn't win a Superbowl without weapons, he didn't "BE the best" untill surrounded by great players.

                    But yeah, that's what this team needs to win, rhetoric!

                    I do agree that Elway was a better QB than Manning.

                      Elway played behind lines and with talent that would have sent the likes of Brady & Manning to Margaritaville. Elway did not have a probowl receiver until his 10 season, by then he had already carried three teams to the Super Bowl.



                      When you order up the statue of the greatest quarterback of the
                      last 20 years, make sure you get the sock right. It has to be
                      pulled all the way down, preferably with a defensive end's
                      fingernail still in it. Give the right shoe a flat tire, and
                      show the jersey yanked off one shoulder pad, the work of a
                      blitzing linebacker who thought he had himself an appearance on
                      the next NFL's Greatest Hits video but instead got only a
                      fleeting handful of orange-and-blue Denver Broncos nylon. It's
                      true, you know. John Elway has spent more time on the job having
                      his padding adjusted than Pamela Anderson Lee.

                      While you're at it, see if the sculptor can put in a hint of the
                      bulges of tape and a knee brace underneath the legs of the
                      pants, and of the limp that made Elway walk like John Wayne in
                      high heels yet vanished when he took off sprinting, needing six
                      yards and somehow always getting six yards and an inch.

                      Try to show the jaw-dropping power of that right arm, the one
                      that shredded receivers' gloves and knocked the wind out of
                      strong men. Elway threw the worst screen passes in NFL history,
                      but he could get the football to you at rush hour in the middle
                      of Penn Station from a hoagie stand across the street.

                      Make the eyes huge, wide as beer coasters, like the eyes of
                      somebody witnessing a disaster--which, come to think of it,
                      Elway usually was. Seems like every time you looked up from your
                      nachos, it was fourth-and-10, the Denver pass protection had
                      collapsed like a bad souffle, and he was starring in another
                      cliffhanger: John Elway and the Pocket of Doom.

                      Keep it honest, too. Show those dark circles under the eyes, and
                      the crow's feet--more crow's feet than any 36-year-old man
                      should have, carved there by 14 years of trying to win with
                      small-fry linemen, cement-footed receivers and
                      witness-protection-program running backs. Everybody wants to
                      talk about Super Bowls, but forget Super Bowls for a second and
                      try this: Punch rewind on your time machine and put Elway behind
                      all of Joe Montana's lines in San Francisco and Montana behind
                      all of Elway's lines in Denver. Nothing much changes in San
                      Francisco, but by the age of 28 Montana is either dead or
                      selling life insurance.

                      That is the thing, really. John Elway never had a Guy McIntyre.
                      John Elway never had a Jerry Rice. John Elway had a whole lot of
                      guys who are now waiting tables.

                      So far in Elway's career, his offensive linemen and wide
                      receivers have been voted to the Pro Bowl a combined six times.
                      In Dan Marino's 14 seasons, Miami Dolphins offensive linemen and
                      wide receivers have been selected to the Pro Bowl 30 times. More
                      than any athlete since Wilt Chamberlain on the Philadelphia and
                      San Francisco Warriors of the late 1950s and early '60s, Elway
                      has had to play at a superb level game after game, year after
                      year, to make his team a winner. Though usually surrounded by a
                      human rummage sale, Elway has won more games as a starter than
                      any other quarterback in NFL history (126). It's the equivalent
                      of carving Mount Rushmore with a spoon or composing Beethoven's
                      Ninth on a kazoo.

                        You can tell this was probably written by a jock sports writer because any Beethoven fan would tell you that writing the 9th in stone cold deafness was probably harder than writing it on a kazoo.
