John Fox grateful to Tebow, but now it’s Peyton’s offense

Tim Tebow made a specific point of thanking Broncos coach John Fox in his press conference with the Jets on Monday, and on Tuesday morning Fox expressed gratitude to Tebow, too. But Fox also made clear that he’s delighted to had the offense over to new quarterback Peyton Manning.

“Tim did some great things for us a year ago and I’m forever grateful for his efforts,” Fox said at his breakfast with reporters today. “We started off 1-4 and were able to win our division, make the playoffs, have a very exciting victory in our stadium against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He took that step for us and now he’s moved on and we wish him nothing but the best.”

That, however, is in the past. Fox says that with Manning in Denver, the Broncos are ready to let him call the shots on offense, in much the same way as he did in Indianapolis.

“We had an opportunity to get a great player like Peyton,” Fox said. “He’s done it a certain way for 14 years and obviously had great success. We’d kind of be silly if we wouldn’t take some of what he’s done in the past, and utilize his strengths, and his comfort zone.”

Fox said there’s no hesitation with changing the offense to suit Manning’s strengths, just as last year the Broncos changed the offense to take advantage of the same skills Tebow had displayed as a Heisman Trophy winner at Florida. Fox believes the 2012 Broncos will look like the 2010 Colts on offense.

“There will be some similarities, much like last year our offense looked a little like Florida’s,” Fox said.

A Florida-style offense with a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback was enough to get to the playoffs last year. If the Broncos have a Colts-style offense with Peyton Manning playing like an NFL MVP again, that may be enough to win the Super Bowl.

So happy Fox going lay off O other than running game. Peyton can take care of everything on offense himself it's like having offensive coordinator out there.

The only place a QB controversy existed was on these boards. I don't ever recall any fans chanting for Quinn, Weber, or even Orton to come back in the game.
