I’m sure the “stepping up” of Elway is going to be the topic of todays podcast but I wanted to put my two cents in. I feel like this move was somewhat of a way for Elway to not be able to take responsibility for the state of the franchise. I know it isn’t all on him and he has certainly played his part in getting to the team back to prominence, but as soon as the going gets somewhat good again I feel like he is putting his hands up and saying “well if next season sucks its not on me it’s not my job”. But then at the same time he will have a direct influence on the end results. It’s like when your boss is expecting you to hit your projected numbers in a budget meeting but then behind your back is cutting all the labor and expects you personally make all the customers happy. I don’t want to be too sour on Elway right now because he did deliver us some amazing years during 2010 to 2015 in PFM era, however the timing of all of this is really auspicious.
Also, I was pondering this question a while ago. What’s the biggest difference in Job responsibilities between Joe Ellis and John Elway? Does joe set the prices of the overpriced Coors Light at the Stadium and John overpays the free agents?
