Mr. Scot

Stop me if you've heard this one...

"(He) played well enough for us to win."

- John Fox, regarding Peyton Manning's performance in yesterday's playoff game (link)

In fairness, he's probably right about that, but Fox also said if he had it to do over again, he'd still have called for the kneel downs that he did "ten out of ten times".

Can't say I agree on that front.

Sweet another snarky Brooklyn Bully comment. We don't have enough of those around here.

Peyton's inability to challenge the Ravens deep let them back into the game. I would hazard to guess that cold weather had an effect on his nerve damage, because he stopped trying to throw anything that required heat until that fateful last snap.

Listen, we know what Fox is. He's a good coach that plays a style that makes it difficult to win against good teams consistently. You can't just keep it close and try to play mistake free anymore. He'll take the kneel downs and play for overtime forever, apparently. He did it in 04 against the Falcons here, and he did it this weekend in Denver. Playing not to lose is playing to get beat. I just hope Rivera figures that out.

So you're saying he is what he is?

i think so and the hope is that rivera isn't what fox is.

i haven't seen much difference at the end of games for that to be disputed, btw.

I'd like to think he isn't. Guess time will tell.

Will say one thing for him. He doesn't seem to be anywhere near as stubborn as Fox was.

Fox in Denver is still the same Fox that was in Carolina. He's the most conservative coach in the NFL. He's not gonna let something like an overtime playoff loss change him, nuh-uhh.

maybe. he's still stubborn. how long did it take him to force a change in the way the offense was being run?

i get a feeling that just like here, he peaked in year 2.

he's a fast starter, then feels that he's established himself and then keeps trying to do the same thing the same way with the same people only to see diminishing returns...but hey, it's been proven to work at some point, why change?

Could conceivably attribute that to too much trust in Chudzinski.

That's one of those things we'll likely never know.

Manning's arm was not all there.

They had so many chances to close out that game and they never got it done.

Manning has to be sick.
