I have been mulling over Fangio’s decision to leave his assistants at home for the combine since it was announced, because it frankly makes no sense to me at all. The upside to this seem pretty limited-I don’t think they are that worried about leaks, and a few days of film study are not going to make or break the draft or free agency. The only conclusion I can come to is that Fangio thinks the combine is not important at all. Hopefully this was something he discussed with the assistant coaches and they were on board, because otherwise it comes off as a power move from a jerk boss. Is there a risk that this seriously rankles some of the coaching staff? Or is this something that guys like Shurmur and Munchak are relieved to be skipping?
On the plane thing, lets remember that the real villains here are the airlines who have packed so many dang seats on a plane that every flight is assured to be a miserable experience.
One quick question-with the combine coming up, who was a Bronco draft pick you questioned, but turned out to be a great pick?
