I'm curious as to what front office titles actually mean. Both the Browns and Broncos have GMs and they're not Holmgren and Elway.
In December 2010, Elway expressed interest in working as the Broncos' top football executive, after having dinner with Broncos owner Pat Bowlen. However, he expressed no interest in being a head coach or general manager after Josh McDaniels' firing, saying, "I'm not interested in being a head coach. I'm not interested in being a general manager. I don't have that kind of experience to be able to pick those players day in and day out and such."
On January 5, 2011, Elway was named executive vice president of football operations of the Denver Broncos. In this capacity, he reports to Joe Ellis (team president) and oversees both the General Manager (Brian Xanders) and head coach John Fox
There ya go. He is the boss for the GM and coach, and reports what he sees to the team president who runs the team for the owner. I believe Jerry Jones is his own team President.
