Broncos GM's future unclear

08:08 AM ET 12.18 | Whether Brian Xanders can be part of the solution is up for debate. What is indisputable is that the Broncos' uppermost hierarchy of Pat Bowlen and Joe Ellis don't consider Xanders part of the problem. The Broncos' GM/head coach tandem of Josh McDaniels and Xanders was severed last week. McDaniels is gone, but Xanders will stay. It's uncertain, however, what role he'll play in the future. After Ellis fired McDaniels last week, he confessed that the head coach had final say on all personnel matters the past two years, though the Broncos had spun all moves as a collaborative effort. Xanders' record as general manager, in the minds of Bowlen and Ellis, therefore is 0-0.

When teams get rid of a coach I think they should take a real hard look at the GM as well. I think they should shoulder half of the blame. I mean what the hel,l just start fresh!

I'd wager he is only going to pay for three coaches and one GM next year...

Just call him Mr. X as in X-GM.

I was thinking the same thing. Aparrently they took the blue pill.

With the brialliant roster moves of the last 2 years not sure how they don't fire the gm....

"After Ellis fired McDaniels last week, he confessed that the head coach had final say on all personnel matters the past two years, though the Broncos had spun all moves as a collaborative effort."

So not only did they make a huge mistake in hiring McDaniels in the first place, they knew about it when they felt they had to LIE and tell everyone its a collaboration. Broncos are headed south and this guys obviously part of the problem. Hire a real leader and fire this guy

Not necessarily hiring him, just giving him to much control when he had never even been a head coach

December 18, 2010  12:57 PM ET

I find it hard to believe that McDaniels was all alone in all those moves. Convenient to scape-goat him now...

I don't know... but I found this when I googled it. It would appear that we sports geeks are not the only ones suffering through our little Oriental friends and their merry hijinx.
