As a Kansas City Chiefs fan, the name John Elway are not welcome words. We don't like him. We don't want to see him.
But we will very soon.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Elway is expected to take a front office role with the Denver Broncos in 2011.
Elway is likely to join the front office in a position with broad personnel powers, working closely with COO Joe Ellis as team owner Pat Bowlen’s two most trusted men.
Chiefs fans may not want to see Elway again but, in this capacity, I like it. Just because Elway can throw a football, doesn't mean he knows how to scout or evaluate players. Just because he's captain comeback, doesn't mean he knows how to put a team together.
To be honest, I find this to be great news for the Chiefs.
