Denver Broncos and General Manager Brian Xanders Part Ways; The Right Move!
The Denver Broncos and General Manager Brian Xanders have decided to part ways, making Bronco fans rejoice.
Xanders spent four years in the organization with three of them as the team’s general manager. He had one year left on his contract. This decision followed a meeting with John Elway, with Elway’s comments about Xanders as follows:
It was tough because I have a great deal of respect for Brian as a football man but also as a person,” Elway said. “Even more so as a person. He was very helpful to me in this first year getting acclimated back to the NFL. I owe him a lot. Just from the conversation we had, we just thought for his career and for the Broncos, we felt that now was the best time to go a different way.”
“Brian deserves a tremendous amount of credit and recognition for the contributions he made to the Broncos during his four years with the organization. His hard work and dedication played a major role in the recent success of our team, most notably last season’s division title and playoff win,” Elway said.
The decision will excite Broncos fans all across the nation as many blamed him for the weak off-season moves before Elway came along. The question is will Mike McCoy follow him out the door, since he is the second-most hated Bronco authority figure. Even with the Broncos winning the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, fans are still wondering why they haven’t gone after big names; maybe it was Xanders.
This firing doesn’t surprise me, and in fact, it just makes us a little more excited for the future of Denver football.
