Twitter user @nfkrauss tweeted at Broncos general manager John Elway nearly a year and a half ago, after Denver chose Trevor Siemian in the seventh round of the NFL Draft.

511 days later tweet, Elway responded. Here’s the exchange in screen shot form, since it was quickly deleted.


By simply tweeting back a blank message at the account, Elway dredged the old message up. It reads as a passive-aggressive but funny way to say, “Don’t question me.”

Siemian threw for 312 yards and four touchdowns in the Broncos’ win over the Bengals. It was his first road NFL start ever.
