COLUMBUS, Oh. (CBS Cleveland) – John Elway has not thrown a football since stepping off the field a champion on Sunday January 31, 1999.

Yet he is still on the minds of Ohioans.

According to Yahoo! Sports, The Columbus Dispatch credited Elway for leading the Denver Broncos over the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL opening game on Thursday night at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Elway may still be a sports villain in parts of Ohio after he led his team against the Cleveland Browns during the AFC Championship game in 1987 and 1989. That game-winning drive in 1987 was so devastating it is even called “The Drive.”

Elway, who is 53-years-old, no longer plays football. He is currently the executive vice-president of football operations for the Broncos and was at the Thursday night game.

After releasing Tim Tebow, Elway played an important role in bringing Peyton Manning to Denver.

Manning threw a record-tying seven touchdown passes in the Broncos’ 49-57 victory over the Ravens Thursday night as quarterback.
