Elway: Hard for us to comprehend how big of a schmuck Te’o is

John Elway on Manti Te'o: 'Why wouldn't he know?'

“It’s a little bit mind-boggling to think what did happen, what he did know,” Broncos executive vice president John Elway said. “He’s going to get asked about it probably 32 times at the Combine. Everyone is going to ask him about it. It’s hard for us to understand—why he wouldn’t know?”

Granted, it's lying season (as if there's any time of year when football execs actually tell the truth). But it's really difficult, even if Te'o were to fall to them at #28, to picture the Broncos drafting the kid.

What, he (best case) falls for some fake Facebook/Twitter advances and doesn't figure it out for years, and he's supposed to quarterback Denver's defense against the likes of Tom Brady, Eli Manning, RG3, and Andrew Luck next year?

Worst case, of course, is that he was in on it and is a delusional, pathological liar...
