I never pay any attention to Bleacher Report. Anyone can write those articles. Its no more than a Fans Opinion, and I get enough of that here.

Tom Coughlin was hated in his years of "futility" in Jax and NY then he was loved and revered after his team got hot at the right time. Steeler fans were tiring of Cowher then he entered the Pantheon of Pittsburgh legends by winning one ring.

All it would take is one right sequence of events and everyone over here save for the most fragile of egos will call for Fox to be in the Ring of Honor.

Unless he wins more than one superbowl here, It won't be me.

If Fox can win ONE superbowl with Carolina, I'll campaign for his bust in canton.

...that doesn't mean if he strings together shitty season after shitty season after that superbowl win I won't be pissed off and think a change would need to be made.

I agree to a certain extent that winning the SB alone can be enough to quell people in general, but it's also worth noting that Coughlin, by the admissions of several NYG players, had actually worked to change how he interacted with his players which in turn led them to respect him more. I always thought Cowher was a little bit overrated as a HC and still do. The SB did not change my mind. I believe that the quality of his OC and DC had more to do coaching wise with why they were in the SB than he did.

As for Fox, I continue to feel that I couldn't care less that he speaks in cliches after games or in any other widely read/heard media forum. Yes I would love to see him do things like break down plays and such on that Huddle show, but que sera sera. I would much rather he said too little to the media than too much. People who love HCs who throw their players under the bus and scream and yell in the media maybe aren't considering the fact that this action leads to ZERO respect among the men in the lockerroom, and if the HC doesn't have that he is already fighting a losing battle.
