Default Jarvis Green happy for McDaniels reunion with Broncos

Jarvis Green happy for McDaniels reunion with Broncos
By Lindsay H. Jones
The Denver Post


Broncos defensive lineman Jarvis Green talks during a press conference at Dove Valley on Tuesday. (John Leyba, The Denver Post)There was no need for an introduction when Jarvis Green showed up to Dove Valley for his free agent visit with the Broncos earlier this month.

It was more like a happy reunion with coach Josh McDaniels.

"My rookie year at New England, he was my first coach. He was a guy I met with every day for 30-45 minutes, and we did that for the entire season," Green said. "We had a great relationship, and that was something that was always sound.

"When free agency hit, my biggest thing was Denver Broncos, Denver Broncos. When we got the call, everything else was pretty straight forward."

Green said he was happy to be playing for McDaniels again, especially after watching McDaniels on the Broncos sideline when Denver
and New England played each other last October. Denver won that game in overtime.

"The last thing I remember was him giving the fist pumps after the game, and I saw that and saw the energy and saw the players playing for him. Everyone wants to play for a coach like that," Green said. "For me, I was in New England for all that time, and I was ready to move on, period. Just watching Josh on the sideline, I was like, I want to feel that too."

Green, who spent eight years playing for the Patriots, is starting his second full week in Denver for the Broncos' voluntary conditioning program. He signed on March 9 as part of McDaniels' plan to revamp the Broncos' defensive line.

Green is projected starter at right defensive end, with new players Jamal Williams at nose tackle and Justin Bannan at the other end spot.

"In this league, players, coaches change teams all the time, so it's going to be a Broncos style. I'm still new to everything, so now I'm just lifting weights and getting to know my teammates," Green said.

"I got some of the basic stuff going on with the defense, but this is 2010 and whatever happens, its going to be a Broncos defense."

But I thought the haters said that was a suckass thing to do and nobody wants to play for McDaniels.

I'm glad we drastically overpaid for the same production Kenny Peterson gave us. Really, I am. I would want to fist bump McDaniels right now too if I was Jarvis.

Or you still mad about buying that Peterson jersey with the cool stitching and now have to put it on the top shelp of your closet with the Clarett, Boss Bailey and George Foster jerseys? Peterson wasnt so hot last year. But at least there is proof someone in free agency wants to play for McDaniels and that might burst your hate bubble.

Good article, but Green is a guy you want in a part-time role. Metrics show that his effectiveness decreases with more snaps. IMHO, he should not be starting.

Maybe jealous that these guys made it and he never did. Suspect it is the one reason he complains about McDaniels' brother ever opportunity he gets. It is like clockwork.

We may have over paid for Green but he is a huge upgrade over Peterson.

I'm hoping Green will provide some much needed energy and fire on the DL that has been missing for some time now. Obviously, not all players have a problem with McDaniels. Maybe the ones that don't produce or act like idiots do and why would you want a roster full of players like that anyway?

Hell no man...The FA's that go elsewhere, hate McD. The ones that do sign here are laughing at him for overpaying them.

"its going to be a Broncos defense."

I'd love to see a kickass Bronco defense. Been a long time since we had one.

Stats don't lie. This deal wreaks of Lonnie Paxton'ism. BTW, i'm not defending Peterson. I'm just saying we horribly overpaid for the same production we just had.

A Bronco defense that can force more 3 plays and punt type of possessions would be great. Seems the last few years the only times those really happen is when the game is out of hand. It seemed to happen more at the beginning of last season, but went away as the season went on.

What's wrong with Paxton? He seems to be doing fine. Peterson also likely got more snaps in games than Green did with the Pats.

I'm not depressed at all. Sitting here laughing at schmucks, hanging with my son watching the Rockies/Dodgers exhibition game.

Doesn't change the point though. We drastically overpaid to replace Kenny Peterson with another Patriots player.

Awesome.

Green's metrics were better than Peterson's by a decent margin, but neither of them should be starters.

Yeah, I don't think Jarvis Green is the answer either. He has a relationship with McDaniels...I guess that's good...but, he's not all that great either. And, let's don't get started with the Le'Kevin who discussion...

Here's to hoping I have to eat crow.

He is doing fine. So was Mike Leach when we decided to overpay a replacement just because he was with McDaniels in NE.
