There’s no next week in the postseason

INDIANAPOLIS–Broncos GM John Elway knows something about playing quarterback, and he’s not of the mind that NFL-ready quarterbacks are getting harder to find.

“I think the quarterbacks are better. We’re getting guys that are much more prepared to play the position when they get to the NFL,” Elway said at the scouting combine on Friday.

Elway has quickly turned the Broncos into a Super Bowl contender. They were 13-3 last season but lost their first game in the playoffs.

“We make our money in the regular season, we make our legacy in the postseason. You don’t have next week. In the postseason, you have to be able to play in sudden death,” Elway added.

Elway says Broncos can do it either way

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on February 24, 2012 – 11:57 am

INDIANAPOLIS–Coaches and general managers of the NFL’s 32 teams take turns addressing the media during the NFL scouting combine at Lucas Oil Stadium. The questions they entertain are usually topical, so they have answers ready to go.

For example, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert had an answer prepared on the potential for losing wide receiver Mike Wallace in restricted free agency, and Packers GM Ted Thompson certainly knew he would face a similar question about quarterback Matt Flynn.

Broncos GM John Elway had a smile on his face when he stepped up to the podium.

“What took you so long?” Elway said when the first question he faced was, “What are your thoughts on Tim Tebow?” The rest was probably rehearsed.

“We’re happy with his year last year. He added a great spark for us. We’re hoping he’s going to be the guy for a long, long time,” Elway said of Tebow.

Fans and media are interested to see what the Broncos will do in this draft. Will they select a quarterback to compete with Tebow? If they do, will be he a spread-offense type of running quarterback, as Tebow is, or will he be a classic drop back type?

“We can do it with either one, whether it’s a guy like Tim or a drop back guy,” Elway said.

What the Broncos do at quarterback will be one of the headline stories of this draft.
