AKRNA Posted December 9, 2022 Share Posted December 9, 2022 2 hours ago, AnAngryAmerican said: I cannot tell if there is some sarcasm in here or not, but George was hired by Elway/Ellis to be the full GM - which is more than Player Personnel Director - he was, from the day he was hired, the team’s “football czar,” replacing Elway, who remained as an advisor but had no real power, by his own admission. Furthermore, the Walmarts said George is their football guy, he is in charge of all things football while Damani Leech handles business/stadium stuff. As I mentioned, George has made mistakes, like all GMs do, and some of them are big ones. Huge ones. Enormously consequential ones. But I also think he deserves a chance to right the ship rather than have the Walmarts try to figure it out on their own. Even with the ancillary owners - yes, Secretary Rice is a passionate football fan, Sir Hamilton is a world renowned race car driver, Mrs Hobson chaired Starbucks - they’re not dyed in the wool football people and neither are the Walmarts. Give George - an exceptionally well regarded football person by all accounts, his mistakes (most of them only realized in hindsight) L not withstanding, a chance to right the ship with a new coaching staff and some greater accountability in the building. If that's truly the case it was an awful hire. Even in the teams website they only mention his abilities with personnel, not running a franchise. Not even close. He didn't have any! That would be a perfect example of raising a man to his own level of incompetence, then either putting up with it or firing him. aka "The Peter Principle". @broncos_fan _from _ukhas pointed this out in several different occasions in different areas of this team and this would seem to fit the bill. I don't think that's the case though. Elway was always listed as VP of Football Operations / GM. George was only listed as GM. Seems to be our MO lately.
