After Denver's bitter loss to the Chiefs on Sunday night, Elway felt compelled to defend Gary Kubiak's decision to send kicker Brandon McManus on the field for a 62-yard field-goal attempt late in overtime.
McManus' kick wasn't close and the resulting field-position swing set the table for a huge Kansas City victory.
This was one of our favorite coaching conundrums in recent memory. The Broncos essentially had three options: 1) Attempt a forever field goal 2) Go for it on fourth-and-10 or 3) punt the ball and basically concede a tie. It took some onions to settle on the first choice, and Elway's tweet was his way of making sure everybody knew there was no second-guessing behind the scenes.
For fun, try to imagine John Elway yelling this tweet at the top his lungs to no one in particular. Whenever you go three exclamation points -- the ol' triple slammer -- you know that individual is pumped up. John's coffee intake must be off the charts.
