DENVER — The Peyton Manning era in the Mile High City was nothing short of spectacular.

It was fun, entertaining, historic and wildly successful.

No. 18 led the Denver Broncos to division dominance with his once-in-a-generation football I.Q., lit up the league with his self-proclaimed rocket-laser arm and brought the organization its third championship with his unparalleled leadership.

That’s why, when it was clear Denver was in the market for a quarterback this offseason—some two years after P.F.M. called it quits—many people believed John Elway had his sights set on the top signal caller out there, whether it be Kirk Cousins or Drew Brees.

But this isn’t the good ol’ days with Manning anymore; this is a different time in the proud organization's history.

There’s a different coaching staff in town, a drastically different roster and even a different front office. And, maybe most importantly, there’s a different mindset of how the team wants to win.

That’s just why the Broncos’ new quarterback, Case Keenum, fits the bill.
