I aways felt Elway wasnt sold on Tim and a chance to get PM was the "out" he needed.
With the exception of the win vs Pitt, anytime the Broncs faced a high powered offense, you knew there wasnt much of a chance. (actually I didnt feel they had a chance then)
For example, when playing NE, I didnt feel there was much of a realistic chance. With PM, I feel with the broncos defense of Miller-Dumerville and co are an instant contender for one of the top AFC teams.
Great job John for making it happen ! Without him, I doubt it would have.
I will add, once Tenn entered the picture, I thought they were the frontrunner.
What's really amazing when you think of it is how far the Broncos have come in less than one yr. Before Tebow took over, the Broncos were a bottom feeder in the NFL and looking at a top 5 or 10 draft pick. Now they're considered Super Bowl contenders and about the only thing that's changed is the QB.
