In today’s modern sports era, having a father or mother in a professional sports league seems to heavily increase the odds that there might be offspring in the mix. While there are legendary familial duos in sports who have even taken the field together, (hi, Ken Griffeys Sr and Jr., LeBron James would like to speak to you about Bronny) there are also simply legacies that are handed down from father or mother to daughter or son.
In his first game as the Denver Broncos quarterback, John Elway had issues with where he lined up on the field, and was relieved repeatedly by Steve DeBerg in the Broncos 2-1 start.

Peyton Manning instantly brought different vibes to Denver. He changed the culture upon arrival. Peyton demanded more from his teammates. No. 18 immediately brought championship aspirations.

With Russell Wilson under center, the Denver Broncos should have the best quarterback play they've had in town since Peyton Manning in 2014.
But just how good will Wilson be in his first season in Denver?
Much like Peyton Manning helped John Elway lure free agents to Denver, Russell Wilson's presence in Denver will help George Paton land top talent from around the NFL.
In fact, he's already doing it.
Russell Wilson wants to play 10-12 years as a Denver Broncos and win three to four more Super Bowls.
That would put him on the Mount Rushmore of all-time great NFL QBs.
