John Elway accidentally thanks himself at Broncos press conference

John Elway got a little confused during Tuesday's end-of-season press conference for the Broncos. 

John Elway wanted to start Tuesday's end-of-season press conference for the Broncos off on the right foot. He planned to open by thanking head coach John Fox, who the team announced it mutually parted ways with the day before, for his service to the team.

But too many Johns can be confusing, as Elway found out first-hand.

It's sure been a rough couple of days for Elway, with the Broncos being knocked out of the playoffs by the Colts on Sunday and deciding to say goodbye to Fox. Maybe he can make up for the gaffe by sending Fox a gigantic pizza.
