John Elway, a former general manager of the Denver Broncos, generated a lot of buzz on social media on Thursday.
Elway said that the Broncos were also great supporters of Kevin O'Connell before they signed Nathaniel Hackett this summer.
Elway praised O'Connell, saying, "We were very, really satisfied with his interview, so it does not surprise me that he's having terrific success up there."
It was hard to decide which direction we wanted to pursue because he was so amazing throughout the interview process. Since he gave us a terrific interview,
I was happy to see that he was given the chance, and I'm even happier to see that he's succeeding.
NFL fans voiced their opinions on social media. Some people are condemning Elway for his remarks, while others think they are exaggerated.
