Broncos' John Elway Dishes On Experiencing NFL Playoffs Through Exec's Eyes
Published January 17, 2014
DO YOU SEA WHAT I SEA? SPORTS ON EARTH's Dan Pompei writes Seahawks GM JOHN SCHNEIDER "did not build his team by the book." Schneider instead built the team "by feel" and "without a pattern." He has "swung for the fences," and put together a roster "that is the envy of the NFL." Pompei: "That's why, in my opinion, there is no one more deserving of executive of the year." Schneider "might have more misses than most -- just because of the volume of transactions he has made," but he has "given himself an inordinate number of chances, and subsequently has built a roster with extraordinary depth." Some of Schneider's "genius is made possible" by coach PETE CARROLL, "who finds ways to use what he is given." But it is Schneider "providing those needs" (SPORTSONEARTH.com, 1/17).
