In ESPN The Magazine, Baltimore’s Jeff Pinkner (Producer of The Fringe) wrote an article in jest about the headline topic. My opinion as to what would have happened had Elway been a Colt:
The Colts never would have left Baltimore. There was a slight euphoria after the Colts drafted Elway. Elway threatened to play baseball for the Yankees but finally gave in to a sign and trade type deal. Bob Irsay either didn’t want to pay Elway but more then possible Irsay didn’t have the guts to play chicken with Elway.
One of the great days in Baltimore sports history was Elway’s first game at Memorial Stadium. For 3 hours the chanting of “Elway Sucks” echoed throughout the Stadium. Elway was OVERTAKEN BY THE HATRED OF THE CROWD AND TAKEN OUT FOR THE 3RD STRING QB. TO THIS DAY ELWAY REMAINS ENEMY#1
