John Elway

Broncos Honcho

Forced to Fly COACH!

1/25/2012 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John Elway is proving he'll go to any length to make the Denver Broncos better ... 'cause the Hall of Famer was spotted on a recruiting trip today ... flying coach!!!

Of course, Elway -- along with Broncos coach John Fox -- didn't have a choice. They were flying the low cost Greyhound of the skies ... Southwest Airlines.

A team rep tells TMZ ... Fox and Elway, VP of Football Operations, were scouting college prospects at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, AL -- and hopped the only available connection from New Orleans to Denver.

Don't panic Tebow Nation, they didn't come back with a new QB in their carry-on ... that we could see.

Oh damn.. what a travesty. Coach?? I wouldn't blame them if they rushed the ****pit and took the plane down. What kind of a world is this becoming if a former football player and a coach have to ride in coach like ordinary human beings. It's going to take some serious therapy to undo the damage this will obviously do to their mental health.

Yes, John Elway was a great quarterback, but as a GM, he is kind of a douchbag, jerking Tebow around all season. As for coach Fox, he is an even bigger douche who is as bright as a bag of rocks. I say this solely based on the series of dumb comments he made to the press throughout the season. On a side note, riding coach does suck, being tall and unable to afford flying first class, lol. Is anyone here ever able to upgrade with their air miles? What a farce.

Speaking of Southwest Airlines, I really wish they would update their planes to make them more comfortable.

What we really want to know about Elway is how on earth did he get so gawd dang old looking over night once he retired, does this rich dude have a problem with alcohol?

Wow, I can't believe TMZ broke this! What's next, will we find out Dan Marino didn't like the in flight movie? Warren Moon thought the food wasn't any good? When did TMZ get so lame?

I was on this flight tonight and Elway was sitting right next to me,I had the middle seat,he had the aisle seat. Neither he nor Fox were rude to anyone. They both were really nice. Elway even signed a few autographs for people.

Nothing wrong with Tebow asking God to keep everyone safe or whatever B4 the game, but when a prayer comes from the heart it is personal and done somewhere private such as the locker room. When you bow down in front of a stadium full of people and millions more watching on TV, it is all just for show.
