Default xanders fired

See the Post story. Who's going to deliver pizzas now?

Barely a week after the NFL draft, the Broncos today fired general manager Brian Xanders, according to an NFL source. Xanders was in his fourth year in the position.

In that video someone posted with the video of "the cave", the draft war room, they said Brian was the only guy who knew how to use the computer. Guess they've got a tough skill set to replace.

I'm amazed this didn't happen the day Elway took over. Long overdue.

Yeah the timing is all wrong for this to be a calculated move.

Clearly we have a LOT of honesty and transparency in our FO:

Get a GM that knows how to make draft trades and get way more value in return. Thanks for waiting until AFTER the draft to do this.

I got the text and thought, "its about time!" How come this didn't happen (at least) after the season.

Indeed. I think this move shows how they really felt about the draft.

Broncos will not replace the position. Elway is essentially the GM anyway.

The McDaniels era just got a little smaller in the rear view mirror.

I have a really hard time imagining us getting anything other than another pizza boy. Real GM's aren't going to have any interest in the Broncos with its current power structure.

Shanahan was his original boss, but Xanders couldn't wash that McClueless stench off him.

Brian presented himself as a personnel guy with nearly 20 years experience. I was told he had very limited personnel role in Atlanta.
