Found September 04, 2013 on Fox Sports:
John Elway has been down this lonely road before, trudging through the tunnel in deafening silence after a stunning loss at home as the AFC's prohibitive Super Bowl favorite following a 13-3 regular season. It happened to Elway the quarterback after the 1996 season when Denver lost to Jacksonville 30-27. It occurred again for Elway the executive in January when the Broncos were beaten 38-35 by Baltimore in the divisional round. Elway rebounded the first time to win back-to-back Super Bowls. He said the pain of that pratfall against the Jaguars was the impetus to make them into champions. ''It was a great incentive for us to come back and have an even better year the following year,'' Elway said. After engineering a $125 million offseason spending spree and acquiring wide receiver Wes Welker and massive right guard Louis Vasquez - to help new center Manny Ramirez fend off the likes of Ravens nose tackle Haloti Ngata - Elway is aiming for history to repeat itse...

Columbus Dispatch Newspaper Reports That John Elway Threw For 7 Touchdowns

The Columbus Dispatch which is Columbus, Ohio’s hometown newspaper had a little bit of an issue with their reporting and editing last evening. We aren’t one to cast professional stones in journalism, however we can laugh for days about the article they ran reporting that John Elway threw for 7 touchdowns against the Ravens on Thursday night. I had a few beverages, but I thought...

Columbus Dispatch Thinks John Elway Threw Seven TDs Against Ravens (Photo)

Last night was the first game of the NFL regular season, so of course there were going to be a few mistakes made before, during, and after the game. What no one expected was for John Elway to come out of retirement last night. In a gaffe that seems more troll like than true mistake, the Friday morning print edition of the Columbus Dispatch incorrectly identified John Elway, and not...

Broncos hope playoff failure is springboard again

John Elway the executive is about to find out if he's as good at bouncing back as John Elway the quarterback was. Elway compares the heartbreak of Denver's loss to Baltimore in the playoffs last January to Jacksonville's upset of the well-rested Broncos 17 years earlier when they also were 13-3 and the AFC's prohibitive Super Bowl favorite. The Broncos bounced back...

According to the Columbus Dispatch, John Elway threw 7 TD passes last night

Lost in the Denver Broncos 49-27 dismantling of the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens was that somehow everyone missed the fact that it was Denver legend John Elway who threw those seven touchdown passes in the opening night victory, and not current Broncos QB Peyton Manning, as pointed out by the Columbus Dispatch, where fact checking is obviously job No.1. Hey, it’s...

Newspaper: John Elway throws 7 TD passes

Last night’s performance by John Elway was quite historic. I mean, to already be a Hall of Famer and then come out of the owner’s box to record seven touchdowns in one game? Amazing: That’s some quality editing by the…Read more →

Photo: Columbus Dispatch “Elway throws 7 TD Passes”

It’s Friday, so you should be in a good mood, given that you have a great weekend ahead of you filled with college and pro football. Speaking of football, this Peyton Manning guy for the Broncos is pretty damn good. He threw SEVEN touchdowns yesterday. Fun fact: Last year the Ravens allowed their seventh passing touchdown in week ten, this year they allowed seven in one game as...

Denver Broncos 2013 NFL Team Preview

John Elway the front office suit is much like John Elway the quarterback. The man is always in a hurry, always looking for a competitive edge,...

Columbus Dispatch incorrectly credits John Elway with 7 TD passes (Photo)

In Thursday night's NFL season opener, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning tied an NFL record with 7 TD passes in a 49-27 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. However, the Columbus Dispatch seemed to get its wire reports crossed when writing the story summarizing the game, as Friday's headline gave credit for the TD passes to retired Denver Broncos legend John Elway...

I Can’t Believe That John Elway Threw Seven Touchdown Passes Last Night

If you’re in Ohio today just waking up and reading The Columbus Dispatch to check in on the Denver Broncos game against the Baltimore Ravens because you went to bed early than you were probably shocked when you read the results. Did Peyton Manning, and both backup quarterbacks Brock Osweiler and Zac Dysert get knocked out of the game and John Elway, the executive vice president...

John Elway comes out of retirement to throw 7 TD passes

Newspaper gives John Elway credit for Peyton Manning’s seven touchdown performance

This is pretty funny.  According to a image posted on twitter by Rhonda Dixon (@Dixon_RC), a headline in the Columbus Dispatch read “Elway throws seven touchdown passes”.  Obviously, it wasn’t John Elway, but rather Peyton Manning who threw those seven touchdown passes in last night’s 49-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens.  I must say though, I wouldn’t be too shocked...

Columbus Dispatch mixes up John Elway and Peyton Manning

The editor at the Columbus Dispatch obviously was asleep at the wheel when they were going through this article talking about the Denver Broncos-Baltimore Ravens game.  The title of the article said “Elway Throws For Seven Touchdown passes” and the first two words of the article are “Peyton Manning.”  Then the next paragraph starts with “Elway” and the following one...

John Elway, not Peyton Manning, threw 7 touchdowns against Ravens

The Denver Broncos blew the doors off the Baltimore Ravens to kick off the NFL season on Thursday night. A game that started out slow after a weather delay turned into a gong show, as Peyton Manning and his new offense put on a show. Or wait, was that John Elway? A look at the […]

Can Broncos avenge heartbreaking loss to Ravens tonight?

As a Cleveland fan, I have very little sympathy for Broncos fans after watching John Elway in the 1980s. But any fan can appreciate the agony of losing the way the Broncos did last year in the playoffs to the Baltimore Ravens. With less than a minute left in regulation time Joe Flacco threw a bomb to Jacoby Jones to score the tying touchdown. Inexplicably the Denver defenders let...
