Not to change the subject, but that was a pretty nifty defensive game plan that Manning drew up last night, huh?  Held the Pats to just 16 points.

 

Is there anything the guy can't do?

Yea I like Manning's time of possession strategy to keep the ball out of the Brady's hands too

The huddle has never once given credit to any individual on our list of sour grapes personnel, unless it is cam when he does well.

Otherwise it's because so-in-so is a product of their environment. It's our WR core/the Oline/our coaches/ Defense's fault we sucked today, Cam played perfect!

Now let's play the game with coaches and players. Harbaugh is just lucky because of the talent that was given to him. Kaepernick just has more weapons. Russell too! Fox is only in the super bowl again because of luck!

And this isn't a bash cam post, but we have some real issues addressing certain issues. You really can't make fun of Dat Alice because we have the same defense mechanisms where we twist logic to make ourselves feel better.

 

yeah a coach who has been a known quantity as a defensive guru for over a decade lands peyton manning and fans are skeptical of the notion that he's heavily involved in the offense

 

what a crazy thought

Fox is the third coach going to the Super Bowl with Peyton Manning as QB

Any other QB known for going to the Super Bowl with three different head coaches? Maybe Peyton's just been lucky to have great coaching throughout his entire career!

That's a pretty cool stat.  I checked, and in the modern era there have been a lot of QBs to go with two different coaches--Montana, Elway, Aikman, Roethlisberger, Warner, and Morton.  Manning will be the first to get there with three coaches.

Any team with Peyton Manning on it doesn't even really need an offensive coordinator so that really tells you why he's been there with three different head coaches.  It has been noted that Manning routinely ignores the playcalls of his coaches and just calls whatever he wants.

When you put it like that, it's downright amazing that this is just his third trip.  :)

maybe he's changed in denver (or maybe he's been stripped of the authority he had here) but fox's single minded dedication to his philosophy was his biggest problem when he was with the panthers.

 

we all got annoyed with the press conferences full of non-answers, the "we chose a bad day to have a bad day"s, the "it is what it is" quotes, etc.  can you imagine fox-during his panthers tenure, at least-taking a hard look at himself, admitting that what he was doing wasn't working, and making a wholesale change like rivera?  i can't.

 

and before somebody brings up The Golden Calf of Bristol for the 80th time, that was mike mccoy's work which is why he was such an in-demand head coaching candidate.  fox was never entirely comfortable with the move and made several snide remarks in the media when the fan pressure was mounting.

Say what you want about John Fox.  I liked him as our coach, I like him as a person, I was very concerned when he went in for the valve replacement, and I want him to go all the way.  

 

Like others, I have stayed away from watching the sport channels this week (correction, I have been watching the Australian Open), but I will be watching today's games.  Like all of us, I had hoped that the NFC Championship game would feature the Panthers, but we may have to wait another year.

 

Finally.... STOP WHINING about the refs ....    We lost... period.

 

I was kinda salty at Fox for awhile about how he left the team and Jimmy Clausen.. then he was gifted Peyton in his lap and I was upset..

 

This year after the heart procedure and hearing he almost had a heart attack, whatever- I was like my petty dislikes for how he left etc. was small. and i warmed back up to him. Hope he gets the job done!

If John Fox wins a superbowl, it's not because he is a good coach. Manning basically won it for him. Manning would make any coach look good.
