Default Xanders' lack of integrity

http://www.denverpost.com/popular/ci_14451686

"I had actually interviewed coaches such as Mike Singletary, Rex Ryan, Ken Whisenhunt, Mike Smith, Jim Caldwell and Jason Garrett," Xanders said. "Of the 17 interviews I've been through, I was excited the most about Josh coming to Denver."
Soon after McDaniels was hired, Xanders was promoted to general manager.

"Many football people say in this league you cannot have success or build a winning program unless the general manager and the head coach are on the same page," Xanders said. "That's what we have here."

Now that Xanders is trying to distance himself from McDaniels, does anyone else think less of him after reading this? In his own words, he was part of the problem. There it is in black and white.

Great bump. An interesting and timely find with some excellent quotes.

He's a cap guy, not a scouting guy. McD had personnel control, and the team wasn't big enough for him and the Goodman's. I don't really like or dislike the guy. He's not the problem and never was. The problem is a paygrade or two higher.

This is funny.... Compare it to this (from DPO):
"We have a 17-person personnel staff that had been going through all those processes. But he had final say," Xanders said. "I'll just say I was respectful of the organizational setup."

I mean I was fine with keeping him to do contracts and cap, but DAMN when Ellis mentioned having a GM with more power, I thought along the lines of a Homgren or Levy or Jerry Reese type. This kind of crap is exactly how Bowlen has wrecked this franchise.

Yeah, Im not sure which is worse, the fact that he's not qualified or that he's an opportunist that lacks integrity.

The front office should be pushing for competence and accountability. Sorry but Xanders represents the opposite and his own words make that obvious.

It's neither. His goatee is his worst offense.

montrose needs to be branded with his Xanders' avatar. Don't cop out now and start jizzing on Tebow. You deserve to have Josh McDaniels' hemorrhoids as your Adopt-a-Bronco.

Or he is just a yes man and went along with the coach that was trying to pass off blame...

I said this the day that article came out. Xanders is a cap guy. He has been a cap guy for years. Why would anyone believe he is making personnel decisions? If he is/was making personnel decisions, it would really help explain why they have been so bad. Between a cap guy and a rookie, what could we really expect to happen?

Please Bowlen, hire a real GM this time...

Speaking of bans....Are the mods pretty much OK with ghosting now if you have been banned (Either temporary or permanent) ?

They say vercing is lex, I'm pretty sure likwid kerruj is wolfpackguy and it now seems that coke dealer is obviously someone else.

I need to dust off my other username from last year & find the PW just in case.

I was just concerned about the site that's all, I heard they did some nasty things to people who messed with their copyright. That's all. Legal nasty, not beating nasty! Doh!

Good interviews don't guarantee success though ie Hawkins and McD.

Ugh. It's going continue to get worse for this franchise, if he's doing anything other than managing the cap and working with contracts. I really hope this is all smoke and that Bowlen does the right thing.
