John Elway Signed Manning Because He “Wants To Touch It” (Video)

john elway touch itYesterday afternoon the Denver Broncos held a press conference to announce the signing of former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.  And while the introduction of the team’s new signal caller seemed to work out as planned, there were at least a few somewhat awkward moments caused by a rather strange choice of words from Broncos’ Executive Vice President of Football Operations, John Elway.

The first awkward moment came when Elway told the world that Tim Tebow is good enough to marry his daughter, but he is not good enough to be his quarterback.

As for the second strange moment from yesterday’s press conference, that would be the moment when Elway began talking about how “he would like to touch it,” but he remained unsure if he could “touch it” at the age of 52.

As much as we all love Peyton Manning, one can only hope that Elway was talking about the ball on top of the Vince Lombardi Trophy, and not the set of balls on his team’s new quarterback.  Check it out.
