John Elway, Trevor Siemian

By the 250th pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, even the most diehard fans had moved on with their weekends. Chicago's Draft Town was closing up shop, and first-round picks were being paraded through their new hometowns.

John Elway and the Broncos' front office was still locked in. With the first compensatory selection of Round 7, Denver took a quarterback out of Northwestern named Trevor Siemian.

A fan, @nfKrauss, quickly questioned the draft pick on Twitter. Elway, the Broncos' general manager and executive vice president of football operations since 2011, ignored the tweet until Sunday. After Siemian's 312-yard, four-touchdown performance at Cincinnati, Elway @-ed the fan.

The tweet has since been deleted, but the fan got the message.

As a rookie, Siemian sat behind Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler on the depth chart, taking one snap all season, a kneel. He did get a Super Bowl ring, though.

With Manning retiring and Osweiler signing with the Texans, Siemian entered a training-camp quarterback battle with Mark Sanchez and 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch. Siemian won the job, and in three games, he is 3-0 with 756 yards and five touchdowns.

So don't mess with John Elway. The two-time Super Bowl champion (with a third ring as executive) knows what he is doing. The Broncos have not lost since Dec. 20, 2015.
