Broncos ‘better on paper’ - the real test will be on the fielddenverbroncos.comAndrew Mason and Brandon Krisztal of Orange & Blue Radio had a quick chat with John Elway and Vic Fangio today ahead of the NFL league meeting, and both the GM and his new head coach said things that should remind you why you can get excited about another season despite three bad ones in the recent past.Elway acknowledged straight up he knows why Broncos Country is frustrated and therefore was impatient at the beginning of free agency.“The No. 1 thing we have to do is win football games, right?” Elway said. “Obviously we haven’t been doing that the past couple of years so obviously everybody is getting a little bit frustrated in Broncoland, and I get that because we’re used to winning.”But Elway feels really good about the steps taken this offseason to fix that - beginning with hiring Vic Fangio and bringing in the staff former defensive coordinator wanted.Listen to "3-25-19 John Elway with Mase and BK on 1st & 10" on Spreaker.The next step was getting better at quarterback - and Elway is confident that bringing in Joe Flacco is an upgrade - while also adding talent to the team.“We decided to go with Joe and trade Case, and I feel really good about where [Flacco] fits in the new system we’re implementing,” Elway said, adding that getting defensive help, especially in the secondary was a must. “We feel really good about Bryce [Callahan] as well as Kareem [Jackson],” he added. “They will really give Vic a lot of flexibility. And with Ja’wuan [James] we solidified that right tackle position. So we feel really good about where we are.”When Mase asked about turning around the culture, Elway - the consummate winner - pointed out that winning games is the first way to do that.“We added talented football players but also good people - guys who care about football and want to win,” Elway said. “And the bottom line is to have guys in the culture that if thingsare not going as well as you’d like them to go, they’re able to pull you out of the nose dive if you lose one or two in a row.”And Elway knows better than anyone that that ability revolves primarily around the quarterback - and that’s ultimately why Flacco will be good for this team.“I think with Joe Flacco pulling the trigger, [the team] will have confidence in him because of his history in this league and the success that he’s had. He’s won a world championship,” Elway said. “[A winning culture] revolves around that position, and I think Joe will be that solidifying factor for us where we can start moving ahead.”Fangio talked with Mason and Krisztal and said that he definitely believes the Broncos “got better on paper” with their new free agent pickups, but the real test is when the team puts it on the field.And the coach believes strongly in helping players be their best selves by being honest and direct.“Make it simple. Show them examples,” he said. “If you can improve the player as a player Todd Davis Jersey , then everything else falls into place.” Denver Broncos first round draft pick, Noah Fant, was one of the top performers in combine history at the tight end position."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Broncos NewsBroncos 2019 Draft ClassBroncos PodcastsBroncos 2019 ScheduleKey Offseason DatesCommunity RulesFull ArchiveBroncos StoriesScheduleRosterStatsOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Denver Broncos 2019 DraftNoah Fant tested better than Courtland Sutton at the CombineNew,35commentsDenver Broncos first round draft pick, Noah Fant, was one of the top performers in combine history at the tight end position. Noah Fant tested better than Courtland Sutton at the CombineBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsWhen the Denver Broncos selected Noah Fant in the first round last night, they got not only one of the top athletes in this year’s draft, but one of the top athletes all-time at his position in NFL Combine performance.Noah Fant, at 6’4” 249lbs tested better than Courtland Sutton did at the combine last year in most of the major drills, while 30 lbs heavier.In fact, in the last ten years, Fant’s vertical jump is top five among not only all tight ends, but also all wide receivers over 220lbs. His 3-cone time ranks top 10 in that regard as well.The closest tight end comparison athletically over the years of combine data to Noah Fant is Jared Cook.Both Cook and Fant ran in the 4.5 40 yard dash range, and had near 40” vertical jumps at around 250lbs. Furthermore, Fant bested Cook in the broad jump, and his 3-Cone time is top five among all tight ends in over ten years of combine data.Denver got an truly elite athlete in Noah Fant, and a great mismatch piece to add to Rich Scangarello’s new offense. I can’t wait to see him out there in the orange and blue.
