But what might be hilarious is that John Elway’s not above gloating.
Asked about a group of passers that have created mixed opinions, at best, the Broncos executive replied, via Lindsay Jones of USA Today: “I’m just glad we’re not in that market. Let’s put it that way.”
Yeah, that’s a nice way of saying, “You enjoy Matt Barkley (or Ryan Nassib, or Geno Smith or whomever), I’m going to let this Peyton Manning kid throw it for my team.”
The Broncos even drafted their quarterback-of-the-future (or not) in Brock Osweiler last season, so it’s easy for Elway to sit back and chuckle, as those around him scramble for answers where there might be none.
