really it's not even about fox being a "good coach" or not-it's the subtext. because his denver team is the top seed in the AFC it's implied in all this hypothetical grabass that we let a mastermind slip through our fingers by his numerous apologists on this board. that's bullshit.
right now, fox is in a situation in denver where his strengths are maximized and his deficiencies are minimized if not eliminated. nobody in their right mind would dare argue that the man doesn't have an eye for defense or can't motivate players-that's his biggest strength by far. we always had reasonably good defenses in carolina when he was here. a few bordered on great, even.
but you either weren't paying attention or are ignoring much of what happened when he coached here if you think he's a good offensive playcaller or judge of personnel on that side of the ball. you are deluded if you think he's allowed to lay a finger on denver's offense, let alone call plays.
well said.. lol
Fox was just as good at losing close games as he was winning them..
