In the 1982 season, the season prior to Elway's arrival, Steve DeBerg started 5 games, Craig Morton started 3 games, and Mark Herrmann started 1 game (only 9 games were played in the 1982 season due to the strike). DeBerg and Elway shared the QB duties during the 1983 season before Elway took over as full time starter in 1984.
