What was the straw that broke the Fox's back?

That's where my Tardis went.

This is exactly why I had my Delorean equipped with LoJack.

He comes from the future with a warning!

I really don't think Fox will leave. IF he does, it will be his own decision, and it will probably mean that JR seized his power.

Eagles game. Week 1 of 09 season. 1st game following the AZ meltdown.....letting that occur (an almost indentical meltdown) to your team in back to back games was the straw that broke the camels back. What occured in both those games to end 08 and start 09 was not just poor QB play.....it has pathetic coaching. The stubborn, round peg -square hole, mindset Fox has had success with.....but it is also his biggest flaw.

yeah this as well.first game of the year your supposed to be ready and those guys just did not show up.that alone is the coaches fault.im still having nitemares of that game being it was the 1st i actually attended.

One big thing that could warrent Fox walking is his play "not to lose". mode.

When he first got here, lets be honest, we didn't have the talent to compete, so he was 150% correct in his strategy: slow the games down, run the clock down, grind it out, keep it close, and hope to win it in the end. But sometimes I feel that he hasn't evolved with the team.

Our talent level now is MUCH better than when he took over. We now have the talent to actually whip up on some teams. Yet...seems his strategy doesn't change. He still coaches like our talent is inferior. This a sure fire plan for failure unless luck is on your side and my opinion is that JR is fed up with that type strategy.

That's a good point KatzAss...I really never thought about evolving with the team. Good point bud!

I don't think he's playing not to win so much, as he knows a good winning formula. That is controlling the clock/tempo of the game, and play good defense. Doesn't matter the talent level on the team, that strategy still wins when executed.

I don't know what yall expect from him. To have Davidson call mostly passing plays, and throwing the ball all over the field? That works real well. :rolleyes:

I do say we need to be more balanced, and mix up the play calling better than we have.

I doubt JR is fed up with that strategy just cause the fans are.

Now that we have a few good qbs, maybe we can be a little more balanced now
