    Default Fire John Elway

    It's time. Enough is enough.

    The underwhelming draft selections, the inability to properly address and identify weaknesses on his roster, his shortsighted and baffling coaching hires, the reluctance and outright refusal to develop young QB's as well as refusing to rebuild a roster that isn't close to being competitive. It's clear that Elway is in over his head and has outstayed his welcome.

    Nothing will change until wholesale changes are made and that starts from the top. We need to get an executive in here that isn't blinded by their own ego and misses the forest for the trees. Elway is analogous to jamming a round peg into a square hole at this point in time when it comes to this team. Keep him and we'll continue wallowing in mediocrity... which I'm not sure you can even call it anymore with the dumpster fire we're witnessing this season.

    Thanks for everything you've given to this franchise, John.... but it's time to move on.

    He’s had two nice drafts back to back.

    However, he can’t find a QB or head coach.

    This just smacks of “gotta blame somebody”. Firing Elway doesn’t actually do anything.

    If it makes you feel better, knock yourself out.

    Even if we fire Elway and Fangio I have no confidence they will find suitable replacements anyway

    It means you get rid of a GM that can’t find a HC.

    There is that, to a point. VJ was just kept around too long, I get what the hire was about, but the unwillingness to admit that it wasn’t working was a problem. Fangio is just a head scratcher, he brought some old school intangibles during the early offseason, but just hasn’t figured out what his job actually is yet. Maybe he will, but if he doesn’t I don’t want to waste another 3 years playing ostrich.

    We as fans are pretty spoiled and haven’t endured a truly sucky season. This may be that with 3-4 wins. More likely they go 7-9 or 8-8 with a mediocre draft position. And even so, I don’t see them trading out talent for draft picks - just not in their DNA.

    I'm already here. Elway just wasted the last 3 seasons because of his failed leadership.

    Bill of Indictment: "That John Elway has mismanaged his duties as GM and Team President of Football Operations."

    Count One: "2013-2017 Drafts. What's our hand? "Two of nothing, three of crap, 4 of for-get-about-it, 5 of get-out-of-town, six of 'time for a lynchin'."

    Count Two: Brock Osweiler, Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch, Case Keenum, and Joe Flacco.

    Count Three: Vance Joseph followed by Vic Fangio.

    Three strikes and you're out, baby.

    Our defense also hasn't been the same since Elway's enormous ego forced us to part ways with Wade who, nobody has anybody doubts about it, was the mastermind of one of the best NFL defenses ever.

    Another in the long line of mistakes attributable to him.

    There are a lot of uncomfortable truths this franchise has to deal with right now. I don’t know if I’m at this point, but it’s not good.
    *The statements above are my opinions, unless they are links, because then they are links, which wouldn't make them my opinions, and I suppose stats aren't necessarily opinion, but they are certainly presented to support an opinion. Proceed accordingly.
