RBs coach Skipper is expected to meet with head coach Ron Rivera next week to discuss a possible return here. Team's RBs would be elated.

i'd be glad to see him back here, but i wonder what's going on with fox in denver that he is having such a hard time filling out his coaching spots. i thought for sure that skipper would be over there. fox's reputation must be preceeding him.

also, compare the hires they have had there to the ones here. seems like we are getting the higher profile ones. i'm liking rivera more and more. fox just seems to be scrapping the bottom of the barrel...kind of like he did here.

They already had an RB coach that was their interm head coach, but I know you know that. That makes 2 times that Mora has snubbed fox too.

Goodson has had good punt/kick returns. I think we should keep him.

Pugh was better everytime he touched the ball last year, minus the KOR for TD against the Seahawks that was called back for a BS call.

He puts the ball on the ground WAY too much.

If we don't resign Williams, Goodson will be a featured back next year. He is great on passes out of the backfield and real shifty in the open field. He is definitely a keeper as long as someone can teach how to pass block. On some of his wiffs it would have been comical it is didn't cause our QB to get hammered.

He returned 9 kickoffs for a 24 yard average. Goodson returned 44 kickoffs for a 22 yard average. Hard to say Pugh was much better.

WHat was the first time Mora snubbed fox?

Also, i was under the impression Trgovac didn't like Fox and that fox had his fingers too much in his defense and that's why he didn't come back/fired (they say he was the one that decided not to come back).

As far as Fox is concerned, I'm starting to think that John Elway is going after the coaches he wants as opposed to the coaches Fox wants. Otherwise I would have expected Fox's right hand man (Skipper) to be the first one hired instead of keeping a holdover from the old staff.

Well, Fox has hired a lot of his old crew in Denver. However, I think Elway wanted to keep the last RB coach and that was his choice. So he may have pulled rank on Fox here. Skipper is a RB coach, so sort of left him out in the cold. That said, I hope Rivera signs him up. We have had great RB play for years and most important it appears they all want him to return.

They give Elway too much control in Denver. That could be a problem, I think him and Fox may butt heads

He still has options elsewhere. The RB's of the Panthers seem to want him here so that would be a plus.

If it were me, I'd much rather coach our stockpile of RB's then whatever garbage is on Denver's roster. Just saying.

Hopefully our new OC will use Goodson in more creative ways.

In 2003. After Del Rio left, Fox wanted Mora first. In his interview, Mora supposedly acted like a cocky, arrogant twit (shocking, I know).

As to Trgovac and Fox, right now it's all just speculation. If given the opportunity, he may turn it down too (assuming they don't hire the Saints guy they interviewed).

There are also rumors Trgovac could be a candidate for the eagles DC job.
