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

also if we get a dozen or so interceptions it would help our chances enormously.

Being a student of the game and knowing Fox's lengthy history of failed conservative offenses, there is little chance Manning would have agreed to play for the Broncos prior to getting a key role in developing the play book, weekly game plans and override authority of any and all play calling at the point of attack. Denver was not the only team he could have landed with so he likely had the leverage to make this happen.

Manning is an amazing weapon. Whether you love Fox or hate him, there's no way that he's going to forget that.

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

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.
