xanders said tebow has done well with his opportunities...

talking about josh liking tebow and what xanders though, josh was intrigued by watching him on TV, great interview on combine, tebow and josh hit it off, great football minds and energy, flew him to denver and had a great all day interview, then they flew to gainesville for 6 hours to teach him scheme and protections and he did good. went to see demaryius, and tried to figure out strategy of where he would go in the draft. strategy that morning to move back to collect a bunch of picks, draft demaryius, then move back up to 1st/2nd to get tebow.

talking about intangibles and all that stuff, then throwing motion.

background is perceived as salary cap guy, but xanders says that a big misconception. 17 seasons in the league, dan reeves coaching staff for 5 years, learned def off and STs, lost a SB against elway his 2nd year coaching. moved to personnel from 02-08, unique job doing college scouting, cross check evals, go on road scouting, then did pro personnel FA, then did contract research on the side. 90% of his job now is watching tape and evaluating players. in 08, shanahan hired him to do all 3.

leaving his future up to pat and joe at end of season. would love to be here, loves the org but will wait to see what happens if hes still here.

VG: no secret josh had final say, how did that process work?
draft: college scouting dept, december and feb meetings, set board going into combine, xanders and mcd would evaluate and they would get together, there was some disagreements but mostly agreements, mcd had final say. always ready with shortlist of vets and younger players in pro personnel. in FA, they get together and execute their plan.

VG: can expect den to not trade away draft choices, rely more on draft and less on vets?
with me, plan would be to try and acquire more selections and build team through draft. younger players on the roster, develop tehm with your scheme then retain those players. invest in your own draft picks and develop them. gonna need some replacements for team needs and injuries.

VG: is tebow future?
hes in his 2nd game, well see where he goes.

VG: player that broncos let go, polarizing figure, peyton hillis.
thing on that id rather not say publicly, but hes done a great job in cleveland. wont answer anything else.

Sounded to me like the Hillis decisison was more than just a pure football decisison. He said there were other things that went on and he didn't want to go there (paraphrasing).

Right or wrong, it was pretty evident that McD didn't think Hillis had the brains to execute his scheme. Hillis also had attitude issues at Arkansas and I'm sure that wasn't cured just because he was drafted into the NFL. Never came right out and said any of that, of course, but that seemed to be the gist.

There's been loads of PR stuff with Brian over the last couple of weeks. This is your new GM folks and for what it's worth i think he'll get it done!

The Hillis comment was telling. There is a juicy story there somewhere...

Im still not giving them a pass on that. Its too easy to make false insunations and then hide behind "its an internal matter".

I've never seen it on the Mane, but read it other places, and heard Dan Patrick mention it... but there are reports that Hillis hit on McD's wife (maybe unknowingly).

Scherleth and Alfred Williams did not say anything about this rumor. It was Dmac himself that mentioned it on the air and he was very clear about it. He said that Hillis hit on McDaniels' wife before he knew who she was.

Once again..... Dmac said it and everyone that was listening heard it. It's silly for him to now deny it.

I felt the same way after listening to the interview. Xanders came across well, I thought. Still I am curious how much input he had on the past draft choices. If he had anything to do with trading a future #1 to draft Alphonso, for example, I don't want him as GM. Though from his interview he wants to stockpile picks, rather than trade them away.

It will be another interesting off season in Bronco land. The media that follows the team must love this. If nothing else McD gave them alot of material to write/report about.

Don't expect much. Fassell has said he won't talk about Tebow or anything specific about the state of the Broncos because he might get an interview

Probably should have started a new thread since changing the title and content of the first post will just confuse people about the content.
