I doubted the Miller pick only because I didn't know WTF I was talking about at the time. I wanted a DT but there really weren't any available that were worth the draft spot. I think everyone that was really aware of his ability thought it was a no brainer pick. With that being said there were three other impact starters drafted(RT, DT, Safety), quality back ups drafted, and a group of Free Agents signed that have panned out well so far.
I think Elway being who he is had to be a huge factor in getting Manning. To a lesser degree Fox and the coaching staff showed with Tebow that they are all about just trying to do whatever works best on Offense, and the team did have some pieces in place already.
