I for sure would have expected to see rotary telphones, comodoore 64's and pizza boxes from the way some on here diss the front office. What i see is a well organized, highly interactive descision support system led by Xanders

Not sure who is leading it but I hope some of the clowns on here ease up a little after watching that.

After the draft is over, it goes back to being the "Porn Cave".

I thought it was pretty cool they could still bring up Champ's #'s to compare to rookie DB's #'s.

I noticed the same thing with the South Carolina tape being up on the board. Could have been from them evaluating a number of players though. South Carolina has some ballers on that squad including a couple others that are not draft eligible yet.

I haven't seen the video yet. Looking forward to it. What color is Pat Bowlen's running outfit this year? NO wait! Don't spoil it for me.

John you rock, very cool video. I was happy to see that the names on the screen were all current players. Wasn't it the cowboys a couple years back that gave away their board on one of these types of videos?

I noticed the camera kind of jerked and blurred over the real board. ;D

This is definitely more than I've seen on the other videos of a draft room. Most have a big board and a bunch of guys with their laptops. This is the first I've seen where they have instant tape and then an interactive database to compare against any player every drafted. Very encouraging. At the end of the day, if they don't pick well, it doesn't matter how much information they have at their fingertips.

You know Belicheat will be going over that frame by frame with CIA level technology to enhance the writing everywhere. Once deciphered they will see that John has cleverly left a message in place that says "F You McDaniels and thanks for ****ing up my team" Hilarious!

It seems like we have jumped up as far as the technology side of things go. I was glad to see that they will be using ipad apps this year for game planning, scouting, etc... beats handing out 200 page playbooks every week.

Nothing ground breaking. Same stuff everyone is hearing. Broncos would like to move down the charts and are hot after CB talent.

John: "Brian has to run all the computers which is, uh, good because he's probably the only guy that can do that"

OMane: "John, what about pizza pick up?"

That is a sweet set up they have there. Hopefully it actually results in a good draft. Outside of Von Miller I remain highly underwhelmed by the first EFX draft.

Not to mention combine stats for our current CB's Champ and Porter.

Hmmmmm....

Thats how I feel as well. We needed someone who loved the Broncos, loved Denver, not just loved football. Our team is in great hands. Elway is super competitive and will bring us a winner really soon.

That means they want to go fast at CB....very fast...Josh Robinson with a trade down?

:~ohyah!:

It's possible...

It would be surprising if they are staring at this:

Bailey - 40 time - 4.28
Porter - 40 time - 4.37

...and picked this:

Kirkpatrick - 40 time - 4.51





...just sayin'

04-26-2012, 04:42 PM
We know they want a CB...and may be more inclined to pick this:

Robinson - 40 time - 4.33

He's upgraded to a tube sock and whip cream.

The site I'm looking at says 4.29.

And anyway, agility and change of direction are generally seen as more important for a corner than pure straight line speed (that was always the thing with Champ--he was just freakishly quick and agile, not merely fast). If they are targeting a quick corner, I would think they would look at cone drills and the like much more than 40 times. Any idea what Johnson looks like on those fronts?

A complete 180? As opposed to a half-180? :)

Im so glad he is running the show. You can tell how much more polished he is this year than even just a year ago.

Elway is a stone cold winner and he wont rest until this team is back on top .. and stay in the hunt for years there after.
