John Fox: "Me and my offensive staff spent 3 seasons failing to replace Muhsin Muhammad before simply bringing him back because we didn't know poo else that we could do. Oh btw, you know this tweener WR, yea he's likely to fail. Bank on this pick being a bust"

you guys really arguing whether Fox was a good offensive minded coach? where in the hell is the argument, he sucked ass at offense. He played it safe, by the book, live by the sword die by the sword. There was no progression or innovation. Why do you think he requires a QB with intangibles? Why do you think he liked Jake so much? Because he didn't know poo about developing a young one. Why do you think he needs vets? Because he is not innovative. It worked for a couple years, but Fox is a run first coach, I would hardly call any of it successful in terms of innovation or above all balance. Maybe 1 or 2 (a stretch) out of a 9 year career but that is not good.

The" Bigger Man" Was front and center when we drafted Shelton and Jarret but no where too be seen when we drafted Jimmy and AE. I wonder why??? Why didn't he comment on those great picks??

John Fox had never developed dick on the offensive side of the ball his entire career here. He gets shellacked when his teams can't physically dominate opponents-see the opener against the Eagles in 2009. He ran the most rudimentary offense in the league and watching him try to call a game when forced him out of his comfort zone was like watching my grandma, God rest her soul, try to use a computer. Why are people sticking up for him like he has a keen eye for talent all of a sudden? I mean he was one of the better coaches around when he could play his game but he just got embarrassed when that didn't work.

Whether or not Clausen or Edwards actually suck is a separate but overlapping issue.


This +1

Been saying for years Fox and staff never developed an offensive skill position player during his entire tenure that wasn't already a top draft pick.

John Fox on TEs

"Can't we just draft another lineman and stick him out next to the tackle instead?"

John fox never developed any player on the roster. I honestly think he just took it more as "these guys are professionals and I ain't their momma". So if they were willing to put in work he would work with them, but if they needed foot to ass the. He wasn't gonna be a babysitter. I kinda see that point of view, but when your paid the big bucks you do what need to do and he didn't.

honestly, I think Fox was able to develop defensive players pretty well, just... yeah, he blew when it came to offense.

I can't wait until we play Denver and our defense shoves the ball straight up Fox's arse.

it is not the responsibility of the head coach to develop players.

That is the responsibilty of the position coaches and their assistents.

This thread is full of idiots.
