No link, but caught this from an interview with Williams. When asked about his favorite quotes, he responded with this:

"It is what it is, until you do something about it.

I'd say that illustrates perfectly the contrast between the previous leadership and the current.

Not the first jab DeAngelo has taken at Fox since his departure

That's just more proof that he was probably never even considering leaving for Denver.

Fox's nature was to be reactive.

Rivera is the epitome of proactive.

I think this quote shows which approach Williams prefers.

John Fox and Co. made this team more relevant than anyone prior to the arrival of Cam Newton. I'll never get the hate that is thrown at him. I think most of you that toss out hateful remarks are just bandwagon bitches that jumped in after the Super Bowl appearence.

Fox rode the going to the SuperBowl ride to the point he got away with piss poor coaching.
I appreciate what he did for the team, but in the end he set us back more than he moved us forward.

Fox did a lot for this franchise. Turned it around more quickly than probably 95% of the coaches out there could have. However, like it was already stated fox was reactive and after years of not making the adjustments and not improving the team in a major way something had to be done.

If your to blind to see what Fox did wrong the past two years then you sir should go ahead and join the broncos. I like what he did early on but he never adapted, there are like 10 topics going into more detail if wish to search them

You can use a line graph to show john fox's inconsistency pretty well.
