Good morning, Broncos Country!

Fans have had some time to soak it in. So, how does it feel now that the Denver Broncos are (finally) “elite” at quarterback?

There is some definite sarcasm at play and it’s tongue-in-cheek. But as I’ve noted before, it’s the first piece in place for the 2019 puzzle. Let’s see what John Elway and the Broncos do in free agency come March 13th. That’s also when the trade for Joe Flacco is official. After that, let’s see what they do in the NFL Draft. This could end up being an “elite” move ... or it won’t.

In the meantime, fans can also get “elite” with the shirt from BreakingT. If you don’t know, since the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl, the question if Flacco is “elite” has been asked. Well, let’s keep it alive in Broncos Country.

You can also pair the “elite” Flacco shirt with the other options in the Denver collection (Colorado Rockies and Denver Nuggets).
