On This Day in Broncos History: January 5

Doug Pensinger

John Elway, VP of Football Operations

January 5, 2011 - John Elway was named the Executive Vice-President of Football Operations of the Denver Broncos. Elway brought with him the experience gained from a 16-year Hall of Fame Career as the Broncos' starting quarterback, five Super Bowl appearances and two Super Bowl Championships. He also brought with him the experience garnered from eight seasons as both owner and chief executive officer of an Arena Football League team -- the Colorado Crush. He helped guide the Crush to a league title in 2005. Elway's first two seasons as the VP of Football Operations -- in which he oversees the work of both the team's general manager and head coach -- have been remarkable. In 2011, he helped guide the team into becoming just the third team since 1970 to follow a 4-12 season with a division title and playoff win with a new head coach. In 2012, he pulled off the amazing feat of landing free-agent QB Peyton Manning and helped his team achieve a 13-3 record and a first round bye in the playoffs.
