The more interviews he takes, the more perceived value he creates. He doesn't have to love Denver, just needs Denver to love him enough to give him leverage and increase/justify his price.things startin to happen around the league
(and so much for my-- "He isnt interested in Denver", and "agree to comp when you ask for permission" takes)
Correct. A well-coached team is not always evident in wins and losses. But an owner who is privy to everything about the organization could glean valuable information that way.
They are 7-9. Our strength of schedule is much higher than theirs. Also they are in the AFC South. Besides getting to play terrible teams twice, this means that their division title was up for grabs much longer than the NFC West. The Cardinals have made personnel decisions that indicated tanking ever since Kyler got injured, while the Titans were in contention to win their division until tonight.And on their third QB who was signed 16 days ago. Why aren’t they 4-12?
We have 19 players on injured reserve and probably at least 8 players not on injured reserve who have missed significant time. 49ers have 6 players on injured reserve. 49ers also have this neat situation where their 1st string QB is terrible, while their 2nd and 3rd string are pretty good. Cowboys have been played with most of their starters the majority of the season. Neither of those teams have had a large amount of starters miss major time. Rams have comparable injuries to us, not as many, but on the same level and they are 5-11. We've been tanking for the last 4 weeks. The only team that "overcomes" injuries like we've had are the Tennessee Titans and they play in the AFC South and have had what have been calculated to be much easier schedules.The injury excuse is PATHETIC. First, Keim built a castle made of a sand. Like he does EVERY YEAR, stock piling it with key guys who are chronically injured. This year he did one better dragging guys out of retirement, one of which just decided not to play the last 12 games of the season after a “hold in “ and another who gets hurt a lot and wasn’t close to playing shape when he came back.
But even with injuries your team doesn’t need to be a steaming pile of puke.
The Cowboys were missing their starting QB for a quarter of the season along with their starting OT and their number 2 WR for five games. And guess what? Not only did they not fall apart, they’re within a game of HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE.
Then there’s the Niners who are down to their THIRD STRING QB, down their best WR, had a plethora of injuries on defense all year, and what do you know… they’re ALSO PLAYING FOR HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE TOMORROW.
every year, MULTIPLE teams figure out how to overcome injuries. That’s because they have superior depth and coaching. Then there’s the teams who never do… and we’re one of them because we have a failed college coach and a blackout drunk GM leading the team.
