    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    1998 team would blow 2014 team out of the water and very little would be due to Elway.

    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

    What was the take on Elway BEFORE he won a SB..it took the guy 3 tries..people like to measure by success..just the way it is.. Given that Peyton has more records to show hes better ..Elway has 1 more ring..truth is neither is better then the other. And right now Elway being a GM and Peyton the QB they both are lacking and their on the same team.

    No doubt and even the crappy OL would be ok because he could move and make plays. Would loved to see him play with todays rules. He also could avoid pass rush and not fold like Peyton.
    It's almost like he won 5 SBs or sumthin.
