Elway's consolidation of power with the elimination of General Manager Brian Xanders creates a lot of uncertainty
and an unclear direction in the Bronco's front office.
Tebow's comeback wins last season the Broncos would not have made the playoffs.
Elway's move to bring in Peyton Manning appears really solid but there is the possibility that Manning may have a mediocre season like Carson Palmer did in Oakland. If the Broncos don't make the playoffs this season then Elway is to blame for both the Tebow and the Xander's moves. If Manning has a great season then I believe Elway does deserve some of the credit, but obviously John Fox and Mike McCoy have to coach the team to playoffs.
Elway's entire approach to the front office seems to emulate Mike Shanahan given all the emphasis on offensive
signings during free agency.
It remains to be seen whether the Manning acquisition or the Xanders move produces any results for this season.
Elway's team blueprint is somewhat uncertain give that he has nowhere near the front office experience of Shanahan or Xanders.
It remains to be seen whether Elway's blueprint leads to the playoffs or another train wreck similar to Josh McDaniel's last season in Denver.
