SHOWED ELWAY THE ROPES: The AP's Arnie Stapleton wrote that while Fox was leading the team’s on-field turnaround, it was Xanders “who helped show Elway the ropes of an NFL front office job last year, guiding him through the administrative procedures and policies.” There “will be no numerical replacement for Xanders; nobody else will get the GM title” (AP, 5/7). ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson writes, “I think the move was made because Elway is comfortable in his role.” In the past year it “became clear the Broncos were top heavy." Elway and Fox have a "terrific working relationship and there is a great comfort level between the two." There "just wasn’t enough for Xanders to do.” This decision is “another sign that the Broncos are Elway’s team” (ESPN.com, 5/8).
