DEN GM Elway resigns as GM, moves up to FO


Recommended Posts

Will always love him for building a SB winner from the ashes of 2011.    But given the next QB choice looms large if Lock doesn’t work out - that’s been his Achilles so I welcome fresh eyes there.

They're selling it as a promotion

+100.  Call it what it (very likely) is, they wanted to fire him but firing the best QB in your franchise history who is a local legend and cult hero comes off looking as a bad PR move.  I just hope, for their sake, this new FO position has minimal stroke in personnel decision-making.  Not that Jon hasn't found success at other positions, but the guy has a blindspot when it comes to the position that he played - which also happens to be the most important position.

This could have Adam Peters written all over it. 

Would love that. He was a big part of the Broncos success during the Manning era and has done a great job putting a team together in SF and helping Lynch transition to the front office.

Obviously being familiar with a lot of guys in the FO would help the transition, and he's definitely been one of our primary guys. Our earlier picks have been a little touch and go (but mostly based on our first year of this regime when we missed on Thomas and Foster), but honestly, we have absolutely crushed some mid round picks with his help. Kittle, obviously. But guys like DJ Jones, Jeff Wilson / Kendrick Bourne / Matt Breida as UDFAs. Dre Greenlaw in round 5. I think Kaden Smith may be solid for the Giants moving forward. Fred Warner in the third.
