Elway would take the Broncos to the Super Bowl after beating the Cleveland Browns in overtime after taking Denver on a game-tying Touchdown drive (known simply as "The Drive"). They were overmatched in Super Bowl XXI by the Giants, but Elway would take them back to the Super Bowl the following year although the Washington Redskins soundly thrashed them. Elway would, however, be named by the Associated Press as their MVP. Two years later, Elway would again take Denver to the Super Bowl, this time in a blowout loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XXIV.
While the Quarterback would struggle (really all the Broncos did) in the Super Bowl, he continued to have productive regular seasons. He would be chosen for nine Pro Bowls was the leader in Passing Yards in 1993, and he would be named a Second Team All-Pro three times.
Elway would take the Broncos back to the Super Bowl in the game’s 32nd contest, but this was a more balanced team than before, and they would beat the Green Bay Packers for their first win. He would take the club back the following season and defeat the Atlanta Falcons for Denver's second Super Bowl where he would be named the Super Bowl MVP, which was his swansong as he retired as a champion.
When it was all said and done Elway threw for 51,475 Yards and 300 Touchdowns and rushed for another 3,407 Yards for 33 Touchdowns.Elway would be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 2004 and fast-tracked into the Broncos Ring of Honor right after he retired. He would take over as the team's General Manager in 2011, and he would gain his third Super Bowl Ring when the Broncos took it all in the 50th Super Bowl.
