    lol Geez. Why is this so important to you?

    Really, I don't think there's something like inspiration that suddenly makes them better players. It's not an observable, measurable thing. Maybe some of their pre-game tensions melt away before the first snap, and they execute more smoothly out of the gate. Sometimes they are just a little more energetic, or a little less "tight" at the start because of something they've thought about all day. Even then, it's still the same abilities/limitations of the body they had before. I don't think the whole team will suddenly be better because of some invisible injection of inspiration, no.

    If ever there were a reason to get a little more emotional, this would be it. It worked for the Colts last year; as well as the Ravens when Ray announced his retirement. I'm a firm believer in execution over emotion, but sometimes there's that loose-and-easy swagger that comes with having an emotional trigger.

    So long as it's channeled properly, and not just energy wasted through a bunch of yelling, celebrations, etc.

    idk what this team does. JDR needs to stay withthe defense. IMO.
    A head coach can be a play caller as well. Lots of head coaches call the offense or defense of their team

    This team clearly has a hierarchy, however, decisions seem to be made via committee. I'm sure Fox has had some input on 2nd half adjustments. I think he will be missed.

    That said, I think this team has enough legs of the committee to survive an absent leg and still stand tall. Much like our defense...we can miss one or maybe two key components, but if we lose three or four, all heck broke loose.

    Note, I'm not disagreeing with your statement regarding Manning, rather adding that Fox has more input that some may think. IMO
    In reality you're right, I should've stated that Manning has a lot of input for a QB, I'm just just trying to make people feel at ease with Fox being out for a while. here's hoping Fox has a speedy recovery. I miss him already.

    I tend to agree with this. And not in the football cliche "win one for the Gipper" way. I think it is a time to rally the forces, redouble the efforts, and refocus on the season. It's like a wakeup call that Fox isn't here anymore, and the players can't become comfortable or smug. And to look at it from the point of view of all the bad things that have happened this season, with injuries, and now illness, and make sure to see things from a level of humilty. That the Broncos aren't the kings of the universe, and that it's going to take a helluva lot of effort, and some luck to have success.
    I love this perspective.

    Coach Del Rio is 50. He looks great for his age. Just wanted to mention that.

    Probably more serious than a bypass. They actually replaced one the valves in his heart versus just bypassing a blockage in an artery. They hook you up to a bypass machine that pumps the blood for you and then they stop the heart from beating while the replace the valve. My step father had it done a couple years ago.
