  • Ted Sundquist (merged)

    I was very impressed with the interview, probably the frankest discussion since Coyer last year, .........your thoughts ?

  • #2
    He was dead-on regarding Lelie, at the time (we drafted him) that is what the team needed. (and also explains why he is struggling)

    He understands that the d-line scheme (run first) needs tweaking.......again, dead-on.

    He understands that Cutler hasn't proven anything yet, in other words....he isn't touting this guy as the second coming of Elway.......(like most of you have)

          On Elvis making an impact this year!

          The biggest factor is his ability to make and create plays. If he is not making the tackle, he's forcing the quarterback into somebody else. He's been productive at a Division I level that is competitive. He had 20 sacks and 11 forced fumbles as a senior, and he's done it over a consistent period of time. He's also a good person as far as being a team player and for a guy who most people critiqued as being too short for the position, he plays the run extremely well. We drafted him at that spot with the thought of him being a pass-rush specialist, and we'll just have to see if he makes an immediate impact.
          It's great to see Denver is thinking of making this guy a pass-rush specialist! Crossing my fingers he can be a great play maker.

            This question sticks out to me the most:

            Since Javon Walker was actually drafted one spot behind Ashley Lelie in 2002, I'm curious if you and your scouting staff gave any consideration to drafting Javon instead of Ashley back then.

            Rocco Siino
            Morris Plains, N.J.

            Javon Walker and Ashley Lelie were right there together. Probably the difference at that point in time was our relationship with (University of) Hawai'i head coach June Jones. Think back and remember: At that point in time we felt like we needed deep-play, deep-threat speed, and Ashley certainly had that. We had Ed McCaffrey and Rod Smith, and we felt like we needed a deep-threat receiver. Ashley had been in that offense for a while and shown consistent production. Javon had been at Florida State and had a good season and a half. You just have to go with your gut, and that's what we went with. Certainly Ashley's been productive for us.

            Now people on this board said we thrieved without a deep threat in our offense before Lelie and Sundquist goes on the record here to tell why we selected Lelie, this ones to you J-Weezy

                Teddy answered my question!

                How did you feel about picking Brandon Marshall out of Central Florida in the fourth round? Did you feel that he was a reach, or steal? What wide receiver does he remind you of most in the NFL right now?

                Marc
                Bethlehem, Pa.

                We had him rated as a first-day player, and I did not expect to see him there in the fourth round. As far as who he reminds me of -- he probably reminds me of a young Shannon Sharpe, with his size and strength. I know that Sharpe was a tight end, and I'm not necessarily projecting Marshall to tight end, but his ability to run routes, move around and catch the football reminds me a lot of Shannon because he came out of Savannah State as a bigger guy.

                      Not many interviews do I come out of, happy that I really, honestly, have had some questions answered.

                      In this one, I did. Terrific interview! Thanks for the read, Chop.

                        Yeah, but he didn't answer my question about why the Broncos continually neglect the defensive line in the early rounds of the draft.

                        Of course, I didn't ask it until about midnight last night so maybe it didn't get there in time. Bah, he probably just skirted my pointed question!

                          Pardon me but just who are you refering to as having said that Cutler is the second coming of Elway?

                            What is there to answer? You already have your answer, Jav. You just don't seem to want to accept it.

                            Quarterback is the most important position in football. The Broncos have a shot at probably the best QB candidate on the board and maybe the best one since Elway . . . . who has Elway-type abilities. Jake is good, but he's closing in on 32. Besides, he's not "Elway-good" (IMO . . . . let's not somebody jump in here and prolong a stupid argument). Cutler is probably that good.

                            I am in agreement that I would have liked a good DL added to the squad. However, a receiving TE was a deep need, too, and Scheffler was available, and his measurables and performance was in V. Davis' category, except for speed, but Scheffler is still fast.

                            Perhaps the best thing they are doing . . . if they are really going to do it . . . . is to turn loose the DL a little more to pressure QBs. I believe they have the talent already there if that will only happen. Sundquist also said he believes it.

                            There. I answered for you.

                            For what it's worth.
