Default Elway deal finalized, Harbaugh is #1 choice, per schefter

per PFT:
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...o-run-broncos/

Quote:
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Elway and the Broncos have reached agreement on a deal that will make Elway an executive VP of the team......Former G.M. Brian Xanders will reportedly answer to Elway and Schefter reports the first order of business for Elway will be to try to hire Jim Harbaugh from Stanford. (Wonder if Elway has any connections there?)
Good stuff, though very very scary that a guy with no experience will be making significant team choices. I know hes a good football and business mind, but this really needs to be more like ozzie newsome and less like matt millen. Can someone do a coach chronicle on harbaugh?

Also per PFT: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...nod-and-smile/

Quote:
Meanwhile, a buzz is emerging in league circles regarding the possibility that Elway will waltz into the Broncos front office, Matt Millen-style, and potentially run a team without the experience or, possibly, the skill to do so.

“Please let the Elway rumor be true!” an executive with another AFC team told us via text message earlier this week.
They absolutely need to understand what his role is, and it should be to assist in making decisions and give his input as someone who played and can still connect with current players. If he goes in and runs the show, this could be a total disaster.

Everyone around the team insists this is more than a P.R. move and Elway will truly be running the show despite no NFL experience

Thatís exactly what has the rest of the NFL smiling and nodding.
Looks like he`ll have to come from behind again.

You would have to think if harbaugh becomes our new HC that it is a lock for Luck to be our 1st round selection if he is available no matter how tebow plays today

Well if the Panthers take him, it's a moot point.

i wouldnt be sure. a HC job first and foremost is to evaluate his team and its needs and try to fill them. if former players do that, great. but not waste your best resources on areas of strength.

I voted for Harbaugh since there were indications that Elway will be involved in hiring HC.
I hope Harbaugh will evaluate Tebow before drafting a QB in first round.

The scariest part of this whole deal is John putting himself up for criticism as a Bronco. Worst case scenario, he pulls a Matt Millen and our image of The Duke is forever tarnished in some way.

Good luck John! We need another comeback!

Looks like the other thread just got moved. But a head coach with only two years of pro coaching experience in the NFL? And that for the Oakland Raiders? ugh and bleh.

Why Harbaugh? His first order of buisness is to hire this guy? Why not do a coaching search, and interview some people? How does Studsville feel about his talk on Monday now?

every team in the NFL has a pretty good indication of who they want to hire before they talk to anyone.

Cool. Now we'll trade Tebow to Carolina for the number one pick and take Andrew Luck.

(I'll post this over here, cause this thread was first)

We would have to give up the house to get Luck, unless Carolina thinks Jimmy Clausen is not QBOTF material.
I just don't see how anyone in the right mind giving up the right to get Luck.

However, the unthinkable could happen. At this point Tebow is much better marketable than when he was on draft day.
That's the only way I see this happening. Tebow to Carolina for the rights to get Luck with Harbaugh as our HC.

I still hate the thought of that...

I wouldn't want that at this point. Now that we know Tebow can play at this level, I'd rather have him with all the comes with it rather take a chance on a 'sure thing' like Luck.

I think Elway will be okay in this one as long as he leaves his bias' at home. I think Xanders has had a run working behind the scenes with enough GM's that this could work. He could fill in where Elway is lacking. Let's also remember that John was an Economics major at Stanford. I think he'll be alright.

As for Harbaugh, I love his toughness and grit. I'll be disappointed if they want to move on from Luck but it's basically a regime change and these things happen. In my eyes though, Tebow reminds me eerily of Harbaugh when he played. Draw up a play in the dirt and go make it happen. Those two would be passionate individuals on the sidelines.

You said every NFL team. We sure didn't go into our last coaching search with a guy in mind. In sound like (somehow) McDaniels got the job during his interview.

Online Panthers tickets can be found everywhere, for cheap. Places like ticket exchange show more than a thousand tickets up for sale for future home games.

From a Carolina news station.

Hell, they'd probably throw in their third round pick with the number one for a shot at Tebow.
