On Monday, John Elway will return to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., this time as the general manager of the reigning Super Bowl champions. Surely he hopes to return with fonder, healthier memories as the team celebrates its world championship with President Barack Obama.

It's safe to assume no member of the Denver Broncos was more personally impacted by Barack Obama's presidential term than Demaryius Thomas.

And then there's the third guy, sort of the middle-child quarterback, the guy nobody's really talking about outside of the walls of the Broncos' suburban Denver complex. The guy Kubiak says has "the pro arm" has been mentored by Peyton Manning and certainly knows the Broncos' offense as the team closes in on the end of its offseason program -- Trevor Siemian.

"(Running back Steve) Sewell was the backup quarterback. He didn't work out very well in warmups," Elway said. "I'm lying on the table and they've got a little TV with a coat hanger stuck in as the antenna. I didn't care who won or who lost. All I cared was that Gary got up every time."

4. Von Miller. The Super Bowl MVP remains the game's best pure edge rusher. He had 11 sacks during the regular season, and then had five in the postseason, including 2.5 each in both the conference title game and the Super Bowl. Sack, fumble, big play is his calling card.
