The Denver Broncos are experiencing what all Super Bowl winning teams go through, departure. Money is something that rolls in for players who win a Lombardi trophy, and they follow the almighty dollar. I will never begrudge a man his desire to make as much money as possible. This is America. But I will gladly wave goodbye.

John Elway has already built one championship team, so I am going to put my trust in him. He has been one of the best at finding talent, signing quality veterans, and building a championship atmosphere. He has the right philosophy, and that is keeping guys that want to be in Denver. When has a player left that truly took games away from the Broncos.
You could say this all started with Julius Thomas and Erick Decker finding bigger contracts in other places. Now, Danny Trevathan and Malik Jackson have found their BIG contracts, and it was not in Denver. That is just fine. They earned that right. Thank you to them for helping bring a championship to Denver. They won’t get many chances at that again in Chicago and Jacksonville. I guess one is enough.

As for Brock Osweiler, all of Broncos Country owes him a debt of gratitude. I am not going to trash him for being greedy, or mention that he might be soft if he can’t get over being pulled in a game that he was struggling in. Not to mention, his replacement was an NFL legend. I understand the desire to want to make your mark without being compared to a guy like Peyton Manning. I will say this; Thank you Brock. Good luck in Houston.
John Elway wants guys that want to be in Denver. How anyone could want to walk away from an organization that values winning above everything else seems strange, but money is a powerful magnet. Playing in Denver, for the greatest franchise in the NFL, in front of the best fans, should be reward enough.
I believe in Elway’s philosophy. He has done everything he has set out to do since he rejoined the Broncos. His drive to win is unchanged. As players come and go, Elway will stick to his belief about finding great players that want to be in Denver. It has worked so far. There is no reason to believe it won’t continue to work.
