"I think when you look at it, we have to start fast," Broncos general manager John Elway said. "We knew it was going to be a tough schedule playing the NFC West, and when we finish first in our division like we have the past three years, it is always going to be a tough schedule with a lot of good football teams on it."
"I liked the idea of being associated with the greatest players to ever play the game," said Elway, the former Denver Broncos quarterback and one of several players on the game's cover. "This is going to be an opportunity for me to team with Jerry Rice and Barry Sanders and see how we would have played together. It's also a great chance for all the armchair general managers out there to put together their dream team and see how they perform."
