“I’ve never wanted to disappoint anybody that’s entrusted a position on me, whether it was as a player, or the role I’m in now. That’s the challenge, and that’s what makes me tick – that I want to be good at it.” Elway told USA TODAY Sports. “When I got this job and heard the criticism of, ‘Oh he’s not ready’ it was something I was used to, and I used it as an incentive to be able to be good at what I do.”
Elway knows the main thing he must focus on is winning championships.
“I believe that there are Tebow fans, and there are Broncos fans,” he said. “My responsibility is to the Broncos fans, and my responsibility is to (owner) Pat Bowlen and what he wants to do, and that’s win championships. ”
