Role models for John Elway the exec: Dad, Ozzie and Ted

2

"You look at those guys, Ozzie and Ted and the success they've had, plus they're really good people,'' Elway said. "The Ravens are known as a big physical football team that plays good defense. That's reflected in how they draft. I respect the heck out of that philosophy they have. And they stick to that philosophy. "Ted does the same thing. And he made one of the toughest moves anybody has ever had to make. When you have a Hall of Fame quarterback (Favre) and you draft a quarterback (Aaron Rodgers) — to be able to be a guy who's taken that criticism (for trading Favre) and stood strong … Ted's proven to be right.''
