Xanders is like the kid in middle school who would bring a John Elway rookie card to school with him, and trade it for an Eddie Murphy '87 Topps, an Al Leiter error card, and a bag of skittles.

Fox: I don't know, maybe we shouldn't have rushed to fire him.

Of course the incredibly lame and stupid pizza jokes pop up. They're not even jokes anymore, just lame and stupid comments.

Wonder if Mr. Hindsight used the "I didn't want __________ (insert bad draft pick), I wanted _________ (insert quality pick for another team)" in the interview. "Yeah, we were on the same page when things went right, but it was all __________ (insert name) when things didn't go right."

He was hired as a capologist. He was given the GM role when McDaniels ousted Goodman Jr and his pop by association.

Shanahan the coach was good, Shanny the GM was pure crap, the best move he made was hiring the Goodmans and even they couldn't help the defense.

Best move shanny made was believing in Terrell Davis when others didnt.

drafting him in the 6th was nice, but if Davis doesn't bust his ass on special teams he doesn't become TD.

I thought it was PIzza Pizza territory. In fact, you don't even need to buy two pizzas at Little Caesar's anymore.

It's both actually. Domino Farms is in Michigan and Mike Illitch(owner of Tigers/Red Wings) owns Little Caesars.

Default Lions Make a Great Hire in Former Broncos GM Brian Xanders

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...nfc-north-news

Quote:
Since Xanders is a former Broncos executive, I reached out to a guy who knows all there is about the team in 102.3 ESPN's Cecil Lammey.

"He's a smart guy with a great eye for talent," Lammey texted me when I reached out to get his thoughts.

Lammey says Xanders was instrumental in helping John Elway learn the personnel side of things and was a leading force in drafting Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas. Xanders also unearthed cornerback Chris Harris, who was an undrafted free agent almost nobody (including Mike Mayock) knew about in 2011's draft.

Harris had a very good 2012 and looks like he is poised to be an impact player for Denver going forward. We all know how good Thomas and Decker were this season.
