From the Rocky Mountain News..
With most of the Broncos management, including coach Mike Shanahan, here(Hawaii) for the league meetings, defensive end Marques Douglas is expected to visit with the team's defensive coaches today at the Dove Valley complex. Douglas had seven sacks for the Baltimore Ravens last season
So sund. and Shanny are both chilling in on the beach and Coyer and the boy's are doing their work for them? No wonder things haven't gone their way this offseason. So much for being hands on..........
Stuff like this drives me nut's. You have Gibbs and Snyder flying out to Cleveland, the day he was cut, to visit Brown to set the ground work for his meeting a few days later.
Where as Shanny and Sund. just sit back and have F.A. come to them. Now with Marques they aren't even there!
I know dollars are what drive the market. But still a player wants to be wanted. Brown has gotten on the love from the Redskins even though he may not be getting the money,as in salary/incentive deal, still the skins made it an issue to deal with him from day one adn made the effort to go and see him. Just like Detriot did with Garcia flying him to Indy and paying for his stay just so he could workout for them and other teams.
I think/feel that somewhere somehow the way things are run in Denver have gone off track. Players want money yes, but you have to sell them on why they should come to Denver and it should come from the headman first. Having Bailey and Warren call Brown is fine. But still to land a guy you need to put more effort in to it.
Just my opinion.
