John Elway Not Worried About Denver’s Changes


It has been an itch that continues to get scratched.

How will quarterback Peyton Manning mesh with the offensive system taught by coach Gary Kubiak and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison?

Manning is an immobile, shotgun positioned, line-of-scrimmage operating passer. Soon to be the indisputable statistically best passer in NFL history. Kubiak likes his quarterbacks to huddle, take the snap from center, move and mix in handoffs with the pass.

John Elway, the Broncos’ general manager and roster architect, is not concerned.

“Gary Kubiak’s one of the easiest guys to get along with,” Elway said here Sunday from the NFL’s annual owners’ meetings as he walked through the vast property of the Arizona Biltmore resort. “He’s very smart. Plus, Rico is a very smart coach. (Gregg) Knapp is the same (quarterbacks’) coach. They’re going to get along fine. They’ll get a feel for it. We’re going to put in what Peyton likes to do offensively with what Gary has always done.”
