Jack Elway may have given us all an early Christmas gift.
If you haven’t seen it, the son of the Denver Broncos executive vice president and general manager had an Instagram post that said: “Don’t worry, my dad’s scheming, and when he’s scheming, I’m excited. He made adversity his ____ a long time ago. Patience my friends!”
As Adam Malnati and I discussed on the latest MHR Radio Podcast, is John Elway “scheming,” and should Broncos Country be excited? I’m of the belief that Jack wouldn’t send a message out like that if there wasn’t truth in it. I also wonder if the organization didn’t have a hand in putting it out there as well.
Is @johnelway "scheming" for the #Broncos, & should #BroncosCountry be "excited?" @AdamMalnati16 & I are curious about the prospects on the @MileHighReport Radio Podcast. Also, WTF is a catch?!? https://t.co/Qt9IJXu8XP— Ian St. Clair (@IanStClair) December 20, 2017
Either way, it gives fans reason to feel excitement over what John will do to fix this team and get it back where we expect and want it. Given the last two seasons have brought forth nothing but disappointment and letdown, it’s a needed change. It’s more natural to feel this as a fan of this franchise.
We knew Elway would work to get this fixed given the competitor he is, expectations set down from Pat Bowlen, and when he said he was embarrassed. We had no idea the extent until we received his son’s early Christmas gift.
