Elway bewilders on The Jim Rome Show

John Elway was a guest on Jim Rome's radio show earlier today, and frankly he had some interesting things to say about the Broncos going forward. He talked about Josh McDaniels and his future as a head coach, the drafting of Tim Tebow and whether Tebow can be a successful NFL QB, and the Jay Cutler drama from last week. Most alarming notably, Elway shared some baffling thoughts insight as to why he decided to hire John Fox as the Broncos' new head coach: 

I think that we're we've been defensively with the Broncos, (having had) 6 defensive coordinators in 6 years...I had a mindset of (wanting) to get something done on defense...because to me that's how you win Super Bowls...you play good defense and be adequate or better on offense, you've got a chance to be Super Bowl champs.

Really, John? Adequate on offense? Oh, brother. Apparently John doesn't remember how he won his own Super Bowls...Listen to Elway's appearance with Rome in full here.

Elway was also on NFL Network earlier today. Among his points, John said "Kyle (Orton) is still the starting quarterback." (Thanks, tom3565)
