Default Broncos sixth-round pick QB Tom Brandstater, quoted on VailDaily.com

Broncos sixth-round pick QB Tom Brandstater, quoted on VailDaily.com regarding his intentions to compete for a starting job immediately: "I will work for the starting job. That's my goal. Then again, I'll accept my role once it's delivered. I'm going to go in there and work like I'm the starter and see what happens." Brandstater, who shares an agent with Chiefs QB Matt Cassell, continued:: "I'm just ecstatic to get his coach who helped him so much. (Cassel) spoke really highly of coach McDaniels. I'm blessed and fortunate to be in this situation. It's all about the where, and I ended up in a good place. I don't care where I fell as long as I'm in a good place. I feel very strongly that I'm in a good place.":

I like his attitude.

BTW, do you pronounce it Brand-stat-er or Brand-state-er?

Of course, rookies are going to say these kinds of things... but I believe it's sincere. He knows if he had a great camp, he'll get a look as a starter. Clearly, McD isn't afraid to go with a rookie. He's shown he can do it.

Most important and revealing part: "Brandstater, who shares an agent with Chiefs QB Matt Cassell"

Well, Cassel wasn't a rookie.. but he had no NFL experience to speak of.

You don't think he'll give him a fair chance to win a job?

100% no chance he starts this year.

hope hes got a future though atleast as good backup as we gave a 5th next year for him.

If he becomes a solid backup, that's my ceiling expectations for him.

If he becomes a starter, than's an added bonus!

WTF?

That might be applicable if Cassel had won his job...

I think it is real smart to find tall QB's with skills.

It's certainly possible he'll develop into a starting caliber QB, but I seriously doubt it's going to happen during his rookie year.

Does he throw a 3 quarters side arm type motion? Couldn't tell by the video. Fresno state was decent, right?

Being Fresno State alumni and following the Bulldogs for awhile I can say I'm super excited about Brandstater getting drafted as a project. Yes Yerner, his throwing motion is a little weird but, he has a very quick release. Fresno St had high hopes for him as he replaced Paul Pinnegar a few years back. He never really blossomed in Pat Hill's offense (not too much talent behind him)and the team wasnt too successful. IMO, he has the size and arm strength to defintely warrant a roster sport in Denver this year. He needs a some work, hopefully McDaniels can sprinkle some of his QB fairy dust on him and coach him up right. Should be fun to watch!

Everyone is talking about MickyD like he's the QB guru. How much time do you think he's going to spend working with the QB's as a head coach compared to his position as a OC in New England?

Is this realistic to expect him to do the same as a HC??

I also noticed that McDaniels traded for the very first pick of that round to grab him. No way was he going to take any chances of loosing Tom Bra....ndstater to another team in the 6th.

people also forget he wasnt the one who chose to draft brady or cassel. belicheck was. not saying it makes a dif. i dont believe he'll start this year. maybe 2010 if McD chooses to pull orton from a good season like ole Shanny did w/ plummer.
