How fitting is it that the Falcons are suffering tbese type of losses after our Nakamura/Roddy White last minute hail mary loss to them two seasons ago... I love seeing them have such heartbreaking losses. Karma...
I was thinking about that. There was always a horseshoe jammed up their ass and it seemed like they got all the lucky bounces for years. Not anymore.
Fox is the best coach we ever had, it was the GM and Front Office here that is the problem. Not finding a QB, sticking with Delhomme, stupid contracts and on and on.
Fox has gone to the Playoffs every year in Denver, the first of which was with Tim T E B O W.. at QB!!!!!!!!!!!! And He WON a playoff game with him.
Also, Steve Smith has a hall of fame career with unreal numbers on a better offense with Elite QB in his prime. Something Hurney and Co. failed to deliver.
lol yeah delhomme sticking around here until he was falling apart was all on hurney and the fo. 100% revisionist history. are you sure you watched the panthers before 2011? you don't remember the repeated refrain of "jake gives us the best chance to win" when he was playing the absolute worst football of his career?
yeah i remember the t3bow thing since we're bringing that up. fox was insistent on sticking with orton as denver's season circled the toilet until elway forced him to make a change at quarterback and he finally did. they went .500 and backed in to the playoffs as a result. really no different than 2009 here when jake finally got "injured" and was IR'd except 8-8 gets you nowhere close to the playoffs in the NFC south up until this year.
hurney sucked and i'm no fan of richardson but you're crazy if you think we were holding bill belichick captive here or whatever the company line among the john fox fan club is now. the front office spent boatloads of cash on fox's favorite players and gave him freedom to build his rosters here. the one season they didn't was 2010.
i honestly think it'll be less unbearable here if fox gets his ring. i actually think it's likely. we'll just have the usual low info posters making their "just saying guys that could have been us!" threads.
if steve gets a ring this site should just be shut down permanently because it's all over
