John Elway has done it again.  As a player he led the Denver Broncos to five Super Bowl appearances; winning the last two before he retired.  Now, as the Broncos Vice President of Football Operations he managed to land the biggest free agent in NFL history – Peyton Manning.  Was this the genius of Elway or

Tebow pics gone from Broncos HQ

According to reports, all action shots documenting Tim Tebow's remarkable run last season that used to grace the walls of the team's facility have been taken down.

Manning deal a fearless play by Elway

As Tebowmania grew last season into a full-blown phenomenon, John Elway's obvious indifference to his pop-icon quarterback never seemed to change. Some interpreted this as a sign that Elway's personnel opinions were not driven by results -- Denver was winning games, after all -- as much as his ego and some weird sense of rivalry with Tim Tebow, who was suddenly more popular...

Playoff QB goes for just a 4th Rounder because His Name is Tebow

Seriously John Elway, you had to trade Tim Tebow today? A 4th rounder from the New York Jets is all you can get for a QB that does what every NFL team needs, wins. If Mark Sanchez is not benched this season for Tim Tebow, this trade is awful, even if the Jets make it to the AFC Championship game. Thank Messiah 15 that Tim Tebow is going to be a free agent soon. Tim Tebow is...

Peyton Manning Was John Elway's Ultimate Exit Plan

John Elway is the happiest person in the United States right now – not because of who he acquired, but the backlash he avoided. Getting Peyton Manning was Broncos’ executive John Elway’s pubic relations dream. Elway’s resistance to guaranteeing Tim Tebow job security beyond season’s end, despite his win total, shows Elway has no confidence in his tight end – err...

Elway: “Tim Tebow knows he may be traded”

(Image courtesy of Getty Image) When the Denver Broncos announced the signing of Peyton Manning during a press conference on Tuesday, there were many headline-grabbing quotes (more of them to come later).  Among those quotes were John Elway‘s comments on Tim Tebow and the possibility of him being traded. When asked about the situation, an emotional Elway said that the hardest...

John Elway and John Fox statements on Tim Tebow

John Elway and Tim Tebow. (Getty Images) STATEMENT FROM BRONCOS EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF FOOTBALL OPERATIONS JOHN ELWAY ON QB TIM TEBOW: “Tim Tebow deserves an enormous amount of credit for what he accomplished and how he carried himself during his time with the Broncos. From taking over a 1-4 team and leading it to the playoffs to energizing our fans and this community, Tim...

A Grab Bag of a Whoooooole Buncha Dumb ****

             Because it's John Elway riding a Timmy Tenor centaur...THAT'S why. If the NBA season ended today (and we're damn close to the end), the Atlanta Hawks would be the 6th seed.  I can't repeat this enough after MuDawg told me to do some sort of sexual act with more than one dick.  Dawg also boastfully proclaimed the Hawks would make the NBA...

Model & Tebow Fan Shannon Richards Is Angry At John Elway

Shannon Richards is furious today at John Elway. Fuming mad. The voluptuous pinup model from Texas and a Tim Tebow supporter isn’t taking this Peyton Manning signing with Denver news very well. Our appreciation for everything Shannon Richards goes back to the 2011 World Series when we featured her as a Texas Rangers superfan. Little did we know how much passion she has for Tebow...

Manning lets Broncos escape Tebow-mania

Denver Broncos vice presidentliving legend John Elway owes Colts owner Jim Irsay the nicest thank you letter ever written immediately. It was Irsay who indirectly offered Elway the escape hatch from Tebow-mania that he was desperately seeking. With Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady unlikely to hit the street anytime soon, Peyton Manning's about the only quarterback who could neutralize...

John Elway: Tim Tebow disappointed but understood Broncos adding Peyton Manning

As one friend told me, signing Peyton Manning was the perfect “get out of Tebow free” card for the Broncos. Between Elway refusing to name Tim Tebow the team’s franchise quarterback for most of the season, and John Fox saying Tebow would be screwed in a normal offense, it was pretty clear Denver had reservations about Timmy. Signing Manning allowed them to get out of the situation...

Peyton Manning Shows Off New Orange Broncos Jersey Alongside John Elway, Co. at News Conference (Photos)

It's official. Peyton Manning is the new quarterback of the Denver Broncos. Manning was introduced as the newest member of the Broncos at a news conference on Tuesday, fresh off the heels of inking a five-year, $96 million deal with the team. Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, executive vice president of football operations (and former Broncos quarterback) John Elway, general manager...

Peyton Manning saves Tim Tebow and his Virginity, will not allow John Elway to **** Him

Reportedly Peyton Manning is on the verge of signing a 3 or 4 year deal with the Denver Broncos to make them the 5 audibles and 1 play-action a play team of the west. The Broncos have already stated publicly that Tim Tebow will be traded rather than kept lingering around as the star QB he is. Tim Tebow fans are now saying "praise Jesus Messiah 15" that Tebow is free...

Nation loses out with Tebow trade to New York

It doesn't seem fair.  Tebow belongs as a 'starting' quarterback.  He deserves a shot.  He's earned the opportunity with a Heisman, national college championships and a pro playoff win. It feels like the country is getting cheated.  Football fans don't get the full Tebow effect because he's a second-stringer for the New York Jets, the back-up to Mark...
