Denver Broncos are about to prove that John Fox can be a successful head coach when he works with a competent organization.
Shouldn't that read when given one is the greatest QBs in NFL history?
and in a historically horrible division.
and right now he's sitting where he essentially was last year. sitting right at .500 as part of that horrible division with one of the best QBs to ever play the game.
what i'm more interested in is this...where do they go from here? not just the rest of the season, but what exactly are they going to do next year and the years after that? anyone expecting peyton to keep on playing? what is their plan? what QB are they grooming? how big is that window of opportunity for that team? how long is it going to be open?
seems like he's doing the exact same thing there he was here. being just barely good enough to get by for the most part with a team that he doesn't have to waste any time developing.
with the panthers, this is a young team with a very young QB who can be one of the best the league has ever seen. the window of opportunity is a long way from closing in fact it's just beginning to open. this team isn't going to stay bad for much longer.
i expect fox to do what he did here...peak early and then fizzle out all though i doubt his peaking there will be an appearance in a superbowl.
i think it's acceptable for people to be questioning whether or not rivera was the right call...but missing the "good old days" of an average coach? meh...that's just got apathetic all over it. if you're going to wish for a better coach than the one we have, why not shoot for one that isn't a lifetime .500 coach? quit looking backward and try looking forward.
