John Elway has swung and missed on quarterbacks again, and again, and again and again.
"You're always trying to find an answer to the quarterback position," Elway told Mike Klis of 9News Denver. "You can't wait till you don't have one. We've been working on it and you're always working on it.
"We feel good about what we have in Drew and his ability over the next couple years to continue to grow and make some strides. Hopefully, he's that guy for the future."
As Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff famously said, until you find your franchise quarterback, the search "consumes you."
The search for Peyton Manning's eventual heir has definitely consumed Elway, and his misses are starting to put dings in his previously pristine suit of armor.
If that plan with Lock, like the previous one with Lynch, crashes and burns, Elway will take another swing -- assuming he's still the man in charge.
