Great interview today. Waited to post until I heard the interview. If you didn’t, find it on KOA or other sites and see what you think. (DenverBroncos.com will have the video and audio of the press conference on the site shortly.)
Sixteen years in the league and some tough years are “experiences” you can’t read about and/or understand if you haven’t lived it. I was there for four of John and had another three of my own in Tampa with losing seasons, but 16 years and all he accomplished speaks for itself, so I’m excited for the organization, Mr. Bowlen and the fans.
John’s a winner, a leader, a smart guy, and like I mentioned before the MOST fierce competitor I ever played with in my “ENTIRE” sports career and I played with Kelly, Testaverde, Joe Ferguson, Steve Deberg and Bernie Kosar was a redshirt at Miami when I as a senior. You know it when you see it and you know by what a guy does on and off the field. Leadership and respect are earned, not a given.
By the way great posts all week on potental draft picks and links to video on them. You guys/gals keep it rolling. Like I mentioned late in the week if you were reading (Bay) and I discussed John as a team player not a guy you work for BUT “with” and I think the interview today solidified that comment. When he walks into a huddle, “we’re all in this together attitude” will be much the same as an Executive VP. That’s teamwork at the highest level and that creates “lapdog loyalty” in an organization and a feeling of being a part of something much bigger.
I know you all get tired of my PATIENCE comment but we’ll need some because it will be tough to turn this around quickly. Big ships take time, but I have a lot more faith with John involved and so will many of you if you listened to the no nonsense interview and I appreciate how candidly he spoke about the team, organization, Tebow and Champ.
Fresh start today, so stay tuned.
