John Elway responds to a fan’s Trevor Siemian criticism on Twitter over a year later

Monday September 26th, 2016

John Elway delivered what might be the ether of the year on Sunday, finding a fan’s old Trevor Siemian criticism and reminding them about it.

In a tweet that’s since been deleted, the Broncos president replied to a tweet from user “nfkrauss,” which called into question the selection of Siemian in the seventh round.

“So many other needs, In John we trust,” the fan started, “but this seems like a huge reach.” 

After Siemian threw for 312 yards in a 29–17 win, Elway went back, found the tweet, and simply called it to the fan’s attention.

We were able to confirm this was a real tweet through several different screenshots, and then we’ve got this from the fan:

Elway continues to dominate at everything he does.
