Elway's Closing Message

Posted Feb 4, 2014

At the conclusion of Tuesday's end-of-season press conference, Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway had one final message.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- As Head Coach John Fox and Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway wrapped up their end-of-season press conference, Elway had one final message before the media made its way out of the Broncos' team meeting room.

“And I would say one thing, I kind of get the sense that these questions are, ‘How the hell are we going to overcome this?’ Well, the bottom line is, sure, it’s not even 48 hours away from the game. But I will tell you this, right now the focus is on what happened instead of how we got there and what we did this year, what we went through as a team.

"But I will say that the farther you get away from this, the less you concentrate on just that one game, the more you look at the full season and really what we did as a football team and really as an organization. And I’ll tell you what, I’m very proud of that. There are some changes we’ve got to make and we’ll make those. But the thing is, we can use that as a game that, ‘OK, we now know what it’s like to be there, now we’ve got to use the experience that we’ve been there but we’ve got to start with step one again and we'll start with the offseason program on April 21.

"Everybody that knows it comes in here and the people that we bring when it gets to 85-90 guys on the roster and John (Fox) readdresses this team the first time and again it’s to get back and be World Champions. The goal has not changed and it will not change. We will use this as an experience that we went through, be disappointed that we didn’t play better, but the bottom line is this organization and what (Owner and CEO) Pat Bowlen wants from this organization — that has not changed and it will not change.

"The bottom line is we’re going to work as hard as we worked this year, if not harder, and continue to do that with the mindset as we want to be World Champions, and we’re going to do everything we can to get there.”
