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.

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


FUZZY MATH! THE 7-8-1 RAMS ARE TECHNICALLY AS CLOSE TO .500 AS YOU CAN GET!

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.

does it somehow make the loss less terrible or the playcalling blunders less stupid? why do people keep posting stuff like this? are there posters on this board who think we went 13-3 or won more playoff games than the broncos that i'm not aware of who need to be corrected?

the jacoby jones touchdown was a much worse blown coverage than nakamura mistiming his jump if we're playing that game. white basically caught his pass in double coverage whereas the DB straight up quit on the route that jones walked in for the touchdown on. that also came off the heels of whoever the hell is doing the defensive playcalling in denver leaving champ bailey on an island until it cost them 14 points.

i think peyton manning will have a noticeable drop off next season and be totally off the rails 2009 jake delhomme style or close to it a season or two after that.

so yeah, if they're not winning a super bowl with this guy like right now, they're fuging up.

Billy Volek... There's a name I haven't heard in awhile.

I remember Mr. Scot was all about signing him and drafting defense #1 overall in 2011.

What a splendid plan that was.
