Fairly certain Fox has owned the saints during his time here.

I think the main reason Fox isn't already gone is lack of a good replacement. A less than 500 season will render it a moote point. From the scuttle butt it already is. I don't know who'd replace him.

For me, there are quite a few unknowns. Not being a fly on the wall, its also hard to know who to blame for the "5 cent comic" offensive play book that we've been using since DAn Henning. The "DA" stands for "dumb ass." When someone like me could predict pass or run and to what side of the field with 85% accuracy while watching the game on TV you know the other guys could call it from the booth. My accuracy went up when I went to the game. I'm not as good with Jeff Davidson. A bit under 80%. I haven't had 4 years to watch him....Just once I'd liked to have seen Hoover, Goins and any other great running back we had on the field at the same time. I suppose it complicated things too much. If those were Fox's calls then we could find a winning Pop Warner coach to take his place. If the last two OC's were picks of Fox he needed to let someone else handle that responsibility.

For some reason since the Del Rio era we've had a working "D" I'd like to see Del Rio come back as a DC. Someone said last night his job was in jepordy. A great DC evidently doesn't have to equal a great HC.

In the end, if his game plan doesn't change Fox HAS to go. Who to replace him with is a whole other question.

i don't wanna see fox go, but fox hasn't fire up anyone here lately so im down for a new HC. the only thing i see that make me optimistic about next year is the cap space (in hoping that they do do something major next year).

For the record i didnt mean my cowher record comment as a statistical fact... Im just saying Fox has 3 playoff appearences, a sb appearence, and a NFC title appearence after turning around a 1-15 team. Some lucky team out there will be blessed if we fire him. Cowher is a great coach as well its just gonna take alot longer to turn around a team with a new regime. To say we dont have fire or a desire to win under fox is asinine. Wanna ask Beason if hes dedicated to winnning and has bought the scheme? The team lost fire huh? 0-3 and we go into the Saints home and almost win with rookie QB and hold them to ONLY 16 points. If we play that way the rest of the year I dont see why we cant finish 10-6.
