Denver Broncos to make tough decisions to make cap in 2015, says Elway

Denver Broncos are looking more and more formidable as every week goes by. On Thursday Night Football, the Broncos defeated San Diego Chargers 35-21 to go 6-1 on the season.

The Broncos ended the 2013 NFL season on a sour note with a devastating 43-8 Super Bowl XLVIII defeat which led to a huge amount of soul searching on the part of General Manager and NFL great John Elway.

But this season the Broncos are more of a well rounded team after some clever moves by Elway in free agency to bring in an array of top talents, including Emmanuel Sanders who grabbed three touchdowns on Thursday night.

Elway opens up on future problems

"We'll have some tough decisions to make." 

However, Elway admitted on Friday that the decision to bring in high priced free agents this summer will leave Denver with some difficult decisions to make next offseason.

"We're running into it now, but that's where you wanna be -- you have good players, and you have to make decisions," Elway told "That only happens when you have talent, and this offseason, we'll have some tough decisions to make."

It is not just next offseason that is worrying John Elway at this time, with the Broncos already planning for life without Peyton Manning. 

There is no coincidence that the Broncos made the Super Bowl in Manning's first season in Colorado, but Elway knows fully well that his career in Denver will be somewhat short lived.

And that's why Elway has been busy improving the Broncos and making them into a well rounded team. Denver's ability to defend the run better this season is a reflection of those decisions, and Elway added that he is hell bent on making sure when Manning retires that Denver can continue to be strong post-Manning.

"I wanna be 16-0 every year. We want to keep winning," Elway explained. "I'm gonna wanna win just as much when he walks out the door. We're continuing to work at that, it's not like we'll relax for three years after he leaves. We're gonna keep working at it, to win year in and year out, and our goal is, when he decides to walk, to make it seamless."
