I've heard that Al leaves more football knowledge in the "bowl" than most folks will ever know, but when a man drafts a kicker in the first round of the draft at 17 it's time to put his wheelchair on cruise and point him in the direction of the bright warm light.

I believe the worst offensive pick -- at least in modern football times -- occurred when the Oakland Raiders selected kicker Sebastian Janikowski from Florida State with the 17th pick of the 2000 draft.
Elway went on to be one of the five greatest quarterbacks (perhaps players) in the history of the sport. The Colts? Be them in Baltimore or Indianapolis, they never won more than nine games in a season during Elway's career (1983-1998).
