Default Elway Challenged on Fan Conference

But that was nothing compared to the grill the executive vice president of football operations was placed on by Dan, who wanted to know why Jeremiah Johnson was cut instead of "Know-show," the sarcastic name occasionally used by critics of running back Knowshon Moreno.
Quote:
Also revealed on the fan forum call:

* Among safeties, Quinton Carter "is probably the thumper of the group," Elway said.

* Elway gave some props to Rahim Moore, saying the second-year safety "has made tremendous strides this offseason in living up to the potential he has as that second-round pick he was last year.

* Russell, on second-year tight end Julius Thomas, a college basketball player who has been limited to one catch because of a bum ankle: "He's a big target down the field. Those guys are a luxury to have in the red zone."

* Elway acknowledged that "that there's a little different feel at Sports Authority Field then there was at old Mile High. But I think that comes down to us as a football team and an organiztion to make an emphasis that we have to win those games at home. Because with the great fan base that we had as (the caller Bronco Lady) said back in the '80s and '90s, we thought we could beat anybody at home. And I think we have to get that mentality back. Especially with the schedule we have this year having three out of four at home, we have to get off to a quick start."

I listened in. Elway said they went with Moreno over JJ because of 3rd down and blitz pickup. Moreno knows how but more importanly who to block which is just as important according to Elway. JJ was not there just yet

Soudns like they want to give KM another chance and see if his new atitude will prevail

Something else I found interesting from the call is that Elway mentioned that learning how to fall as a QB is important when taking a hit. Fighting the defender won't do a QB any good... and I noticed that when Manning got popped on his long throw to Ball in week 3 of the preseason. Manning seemed to just let his feet leave the ground. I've never played football however so I could be just making stuff up.

It's so depressing that Johnson was picked up off of waivers and he's someone else's property now. Oh wait, he cleared. GM Dan clearly has an eye for talent.

The guy is super fast, not only that he is super quick. He has potential but he has not really had that breakout preseason game. I guess potential will get him one more year on the practice squad.

It's obvious somebody in the FO was big on Johnson for him to get this far.

For a lot of the people on here it's this simple:

He's not Knowshon.

Knowhson will excel this year with his limited touches. Exciting to see all 4 backs in this offense actually.

I'm excited to watch Quinton Carter further develop this year. I think we got a steal of a future full-time starter in him in the 4th round.

I completely agree. He's outplayed Johnson in the preseason. I don't really recall in two preseason's what Jeremia Johnson has done of note, outside of grabbing Cecil Lammey's attention in a practice.

Maybe John is just saying nice things about KM to get Detroit to give us a 6th instead of a 7th for him this week.

One can dream right?
