7 John Elway played for the Broncos for 1983-98. He is thought of by many as the greatest quarterback of all time. Elway was the first pick in the 1983 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Colts and was traded to the Broncos after being named All-American and finishing second in the Heisman voting in his senior year at Stanford. Elway holds the record for most wins in NFL history (148). He was the master of the comeback, leading the Broncos to 47 game-saving drives, also a league record. Elway is 2nd on the NFL's all-time list in attempts (7,250), completions (4,123), yards (51,475), and 3rd in touchdowns (300). Elway is NFL record holder for rushing attempts by a QB (772), and ran for 3407 yards and 34 touchdowns. He was one of the most dangerous scramblers ever and is the only player ever to pass for 3,000 yards and run for 200 yards in 7 straight seasons. He also had the 2nd most 3,000 yard seasons with 12. He set Bronco records and had career highs of 4,030 yards in 1993, 27 touchdowns in 1997, and a rating of 93 in 1998. Elway also holds Denver records with 5 TDs in one game, 191 straight passes without an interception, and lowest career interception percentage. Elway led the Broncos to the AFC West title 7 times and to the playoffs 10 times. He also led them to 6 AFC Championship Games, going on to 5 Super Bowls. He is the only QB to start 5 Super Bowls. He led the Broncos to back-to-back World Championships in Super Bowls XXXII and XXXIII. Elway was the MVP of Super Bowl XXXIII, passing for 336 yards and a TD while running for another TD in his final game as a Bronco. Elway was the 1987 NFL MVP when he passed for 3,198 yards and 19 TDs in the strike-shortened season while carrying the Broncos to the Super Bowl. Elway is also 2nd in passing yardage and rushing TDs in Super Bowl history. He was the NFL Man of the Year in 1992, the 1993 NFL Offensive Player of the Year, went to 9 Pro Bowls (1986, 87, 89, 91, 93, 94, 96, 97, 98), and was a 4-time All Pro. Elway will mainly be remembered for "The Drive" he engineered in the 1987 AFC Championship Game at Cleveland, and the vintage Elway run he made in Super Bowl XXXII, giving up his 37 year old body, and getting spun through the air to get the most important first down which led to the Broncos first Super Bowl Championship. But John Elway will also be remembered as simply the the greatest to ever play the game of football.
