08:01 AM ET 11.30 | John Elway could be the guy to save the Broncos all over again. Why not hire the most successful, renowned and honored player in Broncos history to a newly created position of executive vice president, football operations? Why not let The Duke of Denver help turn around the team that has been characterized as "a laughingstock of the NFL," the Buffalo Bills West? Why not now? Elway, according to an impeccable source, "would accept an offer to rejoin the Broncos in a full-time executive position." Elway and Joe Ellis, chief operating officer of the Broncos, did not comment on the possibility Monday, although there appears to be interest on both sides.

Because he'd rather be doing what he's doing in the picture. That's why.

The "Buffalo Bills West"? wow...that's harsh. But damn funny!

Absurd

"Why not hire the most successful, renowned and honored player in Broncos history to a newly created position of executive vice president, football operations?"

On field success and front office management are two completely different things. Did we learn nothing from the careers of Wayne Gretzky and Michael Jordan?

"...in a full- time executive position." In other words, stopping by the offices between tee times.

Elway should take a look at this mess, take a look at his reputation, then decide if his reputation is worth being reduced by interjecting himself into said mess.

Personal suggestion... 9 Iron, Bro.

On point and he better take that job to recoup his losses after that jacked up investment deal with some 'financial experts'...

Explain to me again why a great player would make a great executive. I won't get into the names here but we have plenty of evidence of just the opposite.

Because it's a deperate move to calm the fans for a year or two. "Remember our glory days?"

Take that club to Josh McDaniels and you'll be a hero in Denver all over again.

Don't forget, Isiah Thomas blew up the Knicks the way McDaniels is blowing up the Broncos.

wouldn't that make the Bills the laughingstock of the league since they are the gold standard other bad teams are compared to?
