Chris Petersen addressed the media yesterday at his second press conference of the spring, and he touched on topics like the Boise State quarterback competition, tomorrow's Pro Day for last year's seniors, that awful, awful TCU game, and much more. I waded through the Petespeak to pull out some highlights.
- Someone reminded Coach Pete that the Broncos are one-third of the way done with spring practice. This thought terrified him.
- Petersen described the team as a "work in progress." Like the Mona Lisa, right?
- There has been no separation in the quarterback competition, but Petersen expects the older guys (Southwick and Hedrick, presumably) to make a break once the younger guys get completely overwhelmed by all there is to learn. Then summer will happen, brains will expand, and we'll all be even again in August.
- Petersen said the QB competition may come down to who makes the fewest mistakes rather than who makes the most plays. Jared Zabransky sure dodged that bullet, eh?
The guy put his helmet right on the ball. It was one of those deals where he was carrying it properly, maybe squeezed it a little tighter, but it's football.
They're here to be the best player they can be and win championships for the Broncos. If their main mission in life is to go to the NFL, they're in the wrong place.
What did you get from Coach Pete's press conference? Wish there were more QB news? Not emotionally ready to talk about the TCU game yet? Share your thoughts in the comments.
