On Thursday, general manager Tom Heckert and team president Mike Holmgren invited season ticket and club suites owners to speak directly to them via teleconference from Berea. The Plain Dealer's Bill Lubinger provided some information about select topic from the conference; a summary of those notes is below. Lubinger's full article can be found here.
- When asked what type of role QB Seneca Wallace would be in this season, Holmgren assured that Wallace was not brought here just to hold a clipboard as the backup quarterback. Brian Daboll can get creative and Wallace is excited about the opportunity.
Holmgren stated that he really couldn't disagree with the fan's assessment of Delhomme being one of the worst quarterbacks during that span. He defended his decision by praising Delhomme's leadership ability and how his one-on-one discussion with Delhomme convinced him the veteran could help the team.
From Heckert's perspective, after quarterback, the most important positions in football are left offensive tackle, an "edge" pass-rusher, either at defensive end or linebacker, and then cornerback.
Well, we're without a quarterback right now, but at least we don't have to worry about left tackle.
Here is another "food for thought" note: in Tony Grossi's latest mock draft published today, he has the Browns selecting DE Jared Odrick at No. 7 overall. While the results aren't officially posted yet, on our DBN Draft Board, Odrick is projected to be No. 20.
