Joseph's decision could determine whether the Broncos earn a playoff berth in 2017 after missing the playoffs last season. But there were bobbles along the way, as the Broncos finished 28th against the run and, as a result, couldn't always close the deal against offenses.

To the surprise of few, the Denver Broncos quarterback competition between Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch was the hot topic when the team hosted local and national media members for a luncheon on the eve of Training Camp 2017.

Pro Bowl receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders recently added their voices to the din of Broncos fans calling for a quick resolution to Denver's quarterback quandary.

Elway, whose title was modified to "president of football operations/general manager" when he signed his new five-year contract this week, re-hired Kubiak on Tuesday, this time as a senior personnel adviser. I want the best guy for us. "John and I talked long ago about any opportunity like this, and I'm very happy to be able to contribute on the personnel side". We're trying to do it every year. I believe the quarterback position is going to be seen by everyone.

That is vintage Elway.

"It does matter what the players think because it's their football team", Joseph said.

When John Elway looks at the Broncos, he sees a Super Bowl contender. New England has been installed as overwhelming 13-4 favorites to repeat as National Football League champs, while Denver, which did win the Super Bowl less than 18 months ago, is projected by Las Vegas bookmakers as a team that will have a tough time winning more than half its games in 2017.

There is a new head coach (Vance Joseph), a new offensive coordinator (Mike McCoy) and a new defensive coordinator (Joe Woods).

In Denver, there can be a "reboot" but never a rebuild.

Elway, who was hired by Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen to lead the team's football operations on January 5, 2011, is now signed through the 2021 season.

As a quarterback, Elway helped the Broncos reach five Super Bowls, winning two of them.

Last season, although under a different coaching regime, the battle ended August 29, the Monday after the third preseason game. "It's going to show up and somebody will prove it", Elway said. "I'm going to find something else to do and I'm going to wake up with that same passion and do that". "This would be the year", Elway said. The man under center for most of the season was Trevor Siemian, who through for over 3400 yards and 18 touchdowns while taking over for the retired Peyton Manning and the way overpaid Brock Osweiler, who left in free agency.
