Sorry for all the Elway apologists but he blew it consistently on the one position he should know better than almost anyone.
When all could see Peyton was done for at least a year & a half he stuck by Osweiler who has proven to be less than average NFL QB . Even in that debacle of not getting him signed early enough to prevent the Brock Lobster from leaving he left the franchise with piss poor options.
Then when he had another gift staring him in the face, a 2nd Hall of Fame QB to guide team to Super Bowl contender he played hardball with the Cowboys. That never works well with Jer-ah Jones.
So for what was reportedly a 5th rd pick he decided to go with his latest "finds". Even trading up losing draft capital to get d'Artagnan Lynch.
So let's ponder the wisdom of this. Elway sacrificed a 3rd rd pick to move up 5 spots to get Lynch but wouldn't give up a 5th rd for Tony Romo . Which one do you think would execute the offense and utilize their weapons to a greater extent?
OC hands are tied when he can't call a significant amount of the playbook due to the inability of his QB's. Not to mention the offensive line is a work in progress with revolving door changes from last year to this one. An experienced veteran QB would've been an enormous help there also.
