John Fox's biggest weakness as head coach...

38 posts in this topic

I really think you'll see us build off Sunday in that we'll turn it into a managed game for Cam and the offense. I think that you'll see us running the ball as much as possible playing a field position game and trying to keep it a constant one score game. Cam will be around 20-25 attempts which I don't like but you can't argue with the results. If it turns into a shootout we just don't win those type of games with our personnel. Hopefully Manning gives us a few turnovers and we can capitalize on that and build an early lead. Our defense is sneaky good.

I don't think Fox has an offense. You could say he ran his team the best way he could given the QB's he had to work with.

When Elway brought in Manning, he also took any form of control over the offense away from Fox.

What he ^^^ said.

Fox hasn't been involved with the Denver offense at all since he's been there.

Peyton will make swiss cheese of this soft zone that we run, I hope we play some man coverages and blitz TD, Anderson and Luke a lot to get to Manning.....

I loved Fox as a HC, always felt like he got the crappy end of the stick, but no way I want him walking out of BofA with a smile on his face........

Playing too conservative with a marginal lead.

Could this come into play Sunday? I think so. The Broncos could very well be up by 10 in the 3rd quarter. If that happens, will Fox institute Fox ball and shut down the explosive offense for a more run the clock mode? Can we capitalize on that?

If Fox goes retro Peyton will simply walk to the LOS and audible to whatever play he sees fit versus the Panther's defensive look.

Fox wil look up to the replay something like this:

Panthers need to kidnap Antonio Cromartie for this game as he is kryptonite to Manning's Superman play.

Reality is as the DC (Rivera) for the Chargers from 2008-2010 was 1-1 versus the Colts and Manning in the Regular Season.

We're going to have our hands full and then some.

i think we all know Fox's weakness here; the screen pass and the tight end. Something we actually run nowadays.

Fox's biggest weakness, he didn't have Peyton Manning as the QB.

Who says there is no irony in this world when the man who set offensive football back 50 years winds up with Manning.
