    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
    And by the stream there cometh up on its edge, every kind of fruit-tree whose leaf fadeth not; and its fruits hath been for food, and its leaf for medicine.

    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. ;)
