Eventually, instead of hoping Elway could put on the superman cape and bail the team out in the last two minutes, the Broncos started to use him earlier and more often in the game. Maybe the Steelers will catch on someday and play modern football.
That's not quite accurate.

Terrell Davis ran 392 and 369 times in the 97 and 98 regular season. TD ran 27 times per game in the postseasons when Elway finally won his championships. That would equate to 432 carries over a regular season which would be an NFL record. The Broncos won those championships because TD ran his ass off. Put that man in the Hall of Fame!

It was a lot more like "Terrell help!"

Without TD Elway is ringless. Period.
