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........

Panthers 3-6, we will win this one and OPEN a few eyes. Trust me.

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.

we are the exact kind of team right now that a mid-to-late era fox coached panthers team would have given up a mind-bending, frustrating loss to.

fortunately for the broncos his role is quiet different there than it was here.

John Fox comes to Carolina for revenge with Peyton Manning and a solid defense in tow against a 2-6 Panthers squad that beat a coachless Saints team and a Redskins team whose coach verbally admitted he's given up on the season.

I smell a Carolina blowout.

Shanahan never said that. In fact, he held a press conference to refute that nonsense.

not

We have proven that we can hang with the best of them (Bears Game, Falcons game). We just need to learn how to finish. We beat the redskins, but I'm still not happy about how we don't KO teams once we have them down. Chud has no idea what to do with a lead...We need much better 2nd half execution from our offense

Actually we are the type of team that could actually make fox-ball work.

I'm going to the game, so I hope we keep it close. Denver is a very good team, but not materially better than Atlanta or Chicago or even Seattle for that matter. We have proven that we can stay in games even against elite talent and that is Payton Manning.

I don't really expect us to win. I would not be surprised if this was one of those games in which we keep it within a TD for 3 quarters and then Denver runs away with it. I'm thinking it could look like 21-17 going into the 4th, Panthers will have an opportunity to take the lead, but can't get it done. In this scenario, Denver wins the game by pulling away at the end 31-21, a 10-3 4th quarter score.

I agree with the person who said the Panthers can only win if they don't turn the ball over. I'll concede that turning the ball over once might not be our undoing, but certainly losing the turnover battle will spell doom. It still stands that the Panthers have not won a single game in which Cam has thrown an INT.

If we can hold them to under 25 points, we have a chance. If we hold them to under 20, we stand a very good chance.

John Fox will be gunning for a win in BOA; I have to believe that. Ole Foxy is a better coach than Rivera, I don't think it is even debatable. So...we have that going against us.
