How John Elway's dad helped Howie Roseman become Eagles executive

Maybe Howie Roseman is a football guy after all. When Eagles fans critique Howie Roseman, the phrase "football guy" is usually part of the conversation.

John Elway was right, the Broncos didn’t need a Plan B

“Plan B?” In 2011, the Denver Broncos had just finished an 8-8 season, sneaking into the AFC playoffs on the back of the NFL’s 23rd-ranked offense, 20th-ranked defense and a division where no team had a winning record.
