Fox getting bashed hard on Mike and Mike...

I rather have a coach who takes a kneel down with 30 sec left in the game with a tie in the playoffs than a HC who can't even get near .500

.... One win away from .500 is about as near as you can get in the nfl.

Fox is not and was not ever a bad coach. That said, his time here was done. I'm glad he's gone and not suprised to hear he is doing well.

The hate for Fox is misplaced, JR is the one you want to 'hate'. Yes, Fox got redundant and players stopped caring but that isn't his fault. I tease Fox for some of his BS but he is an average coach, not quite the failure all you butthurts make him out to be. It was his time to go like many other coaches that coach a decade. Not many HCs make it past 10 years with one team. JR is the one who made him a lame duck, that players wouldn't play for, and JR cut his money and vets off. To hate Fox is one of the more moronic things this fanbase does for some unknown reason. Maybe because we are still stuck with JR.

Manning was losing confidence, and seemingly couldn't control his velocity.

Fox had to see what he had and go from there.

Fox will never say this though, he doesn't call out his players.

Fox's statement was typical John Fox.

Contrast to Atlanta's situation where they are down and have ~30 seconds to get downfield and kick a FG. Fox did not play to win the game....he played not to lose.

The thing that bothers me about the decision is they could have taken a knee on third down. If I recall correctly, Denver had 30+ seconds and 2 timeouts.

He had 30 seconds, two timeouts, and Peyton Manning.

Yet he still chose to play for overtime.

It doesn't make me feel any better, but I agree with the Ninja dood.....we do lose in a more entertaining fashion than we used to.

That counts for something....right?

Typical Foxball. He has had the golden horseshoe up his ass since he went to Denver but he is still mediocre at best.
