Columnist calls for Peyton Manning to take over for John Elway in Broncos front office
The Broncos are in a " world of suck" right now, and it has some fans and at least one columnist asking for one all-time great quarterback to replace another all-timer.
Following the Broncos' 30-6 loss to the Chiefs, who were without Patrick Mahomes in the second half, Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla called for the Broncos' ownership to replace John Elway with Peyton Manning as director of football operations.
The column drew mixed reviews, with some fans enjoying the idea of Manning heading the franchise.
