Mr. Scot

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

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.

I'd like to think he isn't.

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

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.

all that article really did was commend fox on making calls that favor the probabilities and defend him on making the calls that didn't favor the probabilities

Well, here's something new.

Per Gregg Rosenthal, Fox decided to kneel down and play for overtime at the end of the game rather than having Peyton run a 2 minute drill was because his team was "in shock" after the Ravens scored.

Not sure what to do with that :unsure:

Taking a knee twice when you have one of the greatest quarterbacks ever. All they needed to do was kick a field goal. Look at what Matt Ryan did in thirty seconds to win against the Seahawks.

Yeah John Fox is a good NFL head coach.

In fairness PFM looked crippled by the end of the game. I remember one deep out route he threw that took everything he had and it still moved like poo through the air.
