    Thanks George - nice piece on the idea John Elway is driven to win.

    wow, I never knew it was Ernie Accorsi that drafted Elway . . . and then, all those crushing playoff wins vs the Browns ...

    Talk about a thorn in the side !!!

    John Elway was, of course, a great player and all-time QB ..... and what I feel separates him and casts him into NFL immortality were those defining moments - kind of like classic films that have those memorable scenes or famous lines - Elway had "The Drive" and "The Helicopter" - both of which are classic NFL moments, not simply Bronco moments

    Not only does he represent the Denver Broncos, he represents the NFL as an all-time great

    This will serve to raise the bar even higher
    Man’s basic vice, the source of all his evils, is not blindness, but the refusal to see ... not ignorance, but the refusal to know.

    Absolutely outstanding article.

    Perfect BG - That is exactly what J. Thomas is very good, but not totally proven.

    I try to be honest and realistic. Plus, I tend to defer to Elway on football more than I do you on politics. ;)
