The Drew Lock hype train has left the station, and no one hopes that Drew Lock succeeds more than John Elway. If Drew Lock flops in the NFL, John Elway’s career as the general manager of the Denver Broncos might be over. Elway’s time is running out, and his success ratio with quarterbacks is less than stellar.

The Denver Broncos have been looking for their next franchise quarterback since John Elway retired after winning back to back super bowl championships. Since John Elway became the general manager before the 2011 NFL Season, the Denver Broncos have had ten different starting quarterbacks.

Peyton Manning is single-handedly the main reason why Elway has not lost his job yet. Manning led the team to a blowout Super Bowl 48 loss at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks, only to make up for it two years later against the Carolina Panthers. Following the Super Bowl 50 win, Elway famously said, “This one’s for Pat!”.

Since Manning’s retirement, the sand in Elway’s hourglass has continued to leek. After Brock Osweiler, Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch, Case Keenum, and Joe Flacco, the Broncos need Drew Lock to be the answer for the sake of John Elway’s executive career.

Any reasonable owner would fire an executive after whiffing on five consecutive quarterbacks. Chicago Bears fans have been calling for Ryan Pace’s job after screwing up the Mitch Trubisky pick. That’s one muffed pick. I love John Elway, but if Drew Lock doesn’t work, that becomes six missed quarterbacks in Denver in his general manager career. I’m not giving him crap for Tebow or Orton because those were before his time.

No one is rooting for Drew Lock more than John Elway; his general manager career depends on Drew Lock’s success.
