On The Art of War, The Denver Post and the Denver Broncos’ quarterback search:
Shout out to the Denver Post’s Mike Klis for sparking my brain (Klis, stop poking me on Facebook)!
The Denver Broncos interest in the quarterbacks basically comes down to what Sun Tzu described as maneuver warfare.
I could go the more hilarious (and possibly entertaining route) of quoting stand-up comedian Dane Cook.
Okay, well, I’ll go that route then…
Brain ninjas (not safe for work or those under 18).
John Fox is a defensive minded coach, regarded as passive, a player’s coach.
Yet he knows how to get inside the mind of a quarterback… And that is by interviewing him at the combine.
The Broncos will be facing these guys (quarterbacks that they’re interviewing) for the next two, three, ten years… Why not have as much ammunition as possible when facing these little guys?
The team has full rein to ask them now about the amount of pot they smoked, the amount of homosexual activity they had leading into their frat initiation, the players they were most scared of in college, and the teacher that gave them the worst grade, et cetera.
That’s not going to go away in their time in the NFL. That’s a ticking time bomb or as Dane Cook would call it, “Brain ninja.”
There will never be another time that they will have full access like they have now to the competition.
All of this makes me feel as if the Broncos’ fans are in good hands. Possibly even genius hands (and this time the genius is defensive minded).
