John Elway picks the Packers

2/4/2011

The man who beat the Green Bay Packers in their previous Super Bowl appearance believes a better outcome awaits the Packers on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.

New Denver Broncos leader John Elway tweeted that he thinks Green Bay will be victors on Sunday. Elway must be new on the job. How many team leaders tweet or make public predictions ? It’s refreshing. Keep it up.

Thirteen years ago, Elway won the first of his two Super Bowl rings by upsetting Green Bay. Elway again led the Broncos to the championship game the following season and won another title in his final NFL game. The Packers haven’t been back since they lost to Denver.

Elway, who took over football operations for the Broncos last month, also talked about John Fox, Knowshon Moreno, Champ Bailey and his new role with the team in this radio interview.
