Hey everyone how is it going? I thought I would do an update with some of the lastest Bronco News. Lets jump right in then and start with some really good news. Cornell Green, a 25-year scout for the Broncos, was named the AFC Scout of the Year by the Fritz Pollard Alliance.
Green is currently responsible for scouting the Southwest area, but has also served as a scouting consultant for the team and evaluated the South, East and Midwest regions earlier in his career.
"Cornell is a vital part of our scouting department, and I'm thrilled that the Fritz Pollard Alliance is honoring him with this prestigious award," General Manager Brian Xanders said. "He is a winner who brings vast experience and wisdom to our scouting process. Cornell's track record of success as both a player and talent evaluator in the NFL is a unique combination, and we're fortunate to have him with the Denver Broncos."
The 2011 season marks Green's 32nd evaluating talent in the NFL, as he began his scouting career with the Dallas Cowboys in 1970 while still an active player. He went to five Pro Bowls as a defensive back for the Cowboys, never missing a game during his 13 seasons with the team.
Congrats to Cornell Green on the award.
Next in the news is the comments that Elway has been saying about Orton, Tebow and the starting QB. Here is some of what Elway had to say:
Elway went on to discuss the possibility of trading Orton. His answer, once again, was pretty obvious:
"People think it is a forgone conclusion that we are going to trade Kyle, but it's not. They are going to compete for the job. A lot of people think it is a forgone conclusion but it's not."
This has sparked a lot of debate as pretty much every Broncos fan wants to see Tebow as the starting QB. A lot of people are upset about what Elway said, but I think it is probably the only thing Elway could say. Check out this article by Andrew Mason over at MaxDenver, he knows what is going on. Anyway I am interested to hear what you have to say? What is your opinion?
And finally I would like to finish on a funnier note. Check out this Superbowl commerical below. ~ Aussie.
