a "vet QB" to fox is a guy like kyle orton or jake delhomme, not an expensive top shelf free agent like peyton manning. that was elway's doing all the way. also you're arguing as if the The Golden Calf of Bristol thing happened in a vacuum and how awful the AFC west is/was doesn't matter which is disingenuous. he had plenty of 8-8 and 7-9 panther teams but that isn't good for poo in the NFC south.
the only time we ever chased a blue chip free agent QB was in 2007 when we brought in david carr (yes there was a time when carr was considered a desirable free agent) yet there was never any doubt whatsoever that jake would still start.
also i don't think anybody in their right mind is arguing that john fox doesn't know how to coach a defense.
if you believe what you just posted, then you are decision.
Just cause Jake ended up being his guy here in charlotte doesn't justify your blindness.
Fox and Elway were important to Denver getting manning.
It's alright. I understand you don't want to give the man any credit.
Just keep it to yourself, and don't try to pass it off as fact.
