ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - A year ago, John Elway agreed to another comeback with his beloved Denver Broncos shortly after the ouster of Josh McDaniels, whom many felt had doomed the franchise to mediocrity for the foreseeable future.
The Hall of Famer has pulled all the right strings in rapidly reversing the team's fortunes.
And for all those fans worried that he's not completely sold on Tim Tebow and might put the unorthodox quarterback on the trading block this winter, relax. Elway said the city's new comeback king isn't going anywhere.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Elway gave his strongest indication yet that he believes Tebow can morph into the pocket passer needed for long-term success in the NFL, which suggests he won't be spending a high draft pick on another QB.
