Fox is/will be considered a success in Denver because he was considered a mediocrity in Charlotte. He is a good coach. He just did not want to be here. Just like Peppers.


Peppers didn't want to be here...

Fox got shown the door. He didn't want to be here once he was told he was being shown the door and they would start the rebuilding process while he was still here.

Fox is a decent coach. He actually is in a decent spot now....maybe he will let a HOF QB just run his offense. Bc Fox's thumb print on an offense is what keeps him from being great (along with stubborn player management)

Good coach with a flawed offensive mindset.

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?

Pretty sure Denver wasn't known for there competency prior to this year

They have had a few off years, just like every other NFL team, but have been very successful compared to the Panthers. So Peyton or no, I would consider them a competent organization.

How many years did fans in Carolina say we needed a better QB / more imaginative offense? Things never changed even when our OCs did.

Broncos quickly recognized not only Fox's strengths, but also his weaknesses and have created a winning formula in Denver by bringing in the offensive talent needed to balance Fox's defensive strengths.

Pretty sure Denver wasn't known for there competency prior to this year


John Elway has only been in place since Jan 2011. Indications are good that he has figured out how to utilize Fox's talents more effectively in a year, than Carolina management did given 9 years.

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.

I don't think anyone thinking clearly wishes we still had Fox. His time here was done.

What I don't get is how some want to put down the Broncos' organization when they have performed better than ours, and when they had the balls to make a major change in their franchise in spite of winning a playoff game last year.

There's not a doubt in my mind that if our people were running the Broncos, they would still be trotting out The Golden Calf of Bristol on a weekly basis.

if the broncos were run fox's way they'd be starting either The Golden Calf of Bristol or orton this season.

manning coming in was an elway thing. high priced FA quarterbacks are not fox's style.

yeah, they're a smart, well-run organization. the fact that they don't let fox micro manage their games or give him a ton of power in personnel decisions reflects that.
