Didn't know Lock was IRed. I do agree that Denver needs a new GM. I don't know what's happening with their ownership with Pat Bowlen's passing, but who ever takes over shouldn't have the infatuation with Elway that Bowlen did.
Ok, then the answer is no, they haven't had a franchise QB since Elway lol.
Which is funny and ironic in a way considering some of that time, the same franchise QB has been a failure at finding another franchise QB.
