  • John Fox was a no-brainer

    I've been saying (along with a few others) for over a month now on the GD board that John Fox would be the next HC in Denver. And here's why:

    Pat Bowlen was not going to hire another unproven HC (ie; OC, DC, college coach) to run his franchise. And, no proven HC (ie; Cowher, Gruden, etc) wanted to run his franchise.

    Therefore, the only option for the Broncos was to hire a HC that got fired this year, or in Fox's case, didn't have their contract renewed and would be willing to coach for less than there previous contract.

    The 2nd worst team in the NFL just hired the coach of the 1st worst team.

    Good luck Bronco fans. You're cheap and near-sighted owner just shafted you.....again.

    Is it his fault Clausen screwed up the Panthers? Was it his fault Peppers left?

    Fox is a great head coach. He should be able to guide this team around

        I wouldn't call he is a great HC. I think he's solid coach for Denver. He will fix your D.

        Boys - his offense was bored. He was used R2P2 formula too much.

          I do agree with hiring Fox, but you can't blame everything on him.

          The owner is the main problem. Not keeping key veterans, having JAKE DELHOMME as QB. The main problem in Carolina this year was some injuries, and the fact that Clausen was horrendous.

          Good hire, time will tell how it all pans out.

            Didn't Gruden decide to stay with ESPN, and Cowher with his family for a year?

            If so, they didn't want to help a lot of teams.

              You mean the same Jake Delhomme that took the Panthers to the SB?

              I agree that the problem Fox had in Carolina was that the front office ran all of the talent out of town and had horrible drafts. I just don't see how the situation is any different in Denver.

                Yes, he did, but Tebow "can" be a way better QB then Delhomme will. And yes, he's not a bust after 3 games like you think which is still hilarious.

                It's your opinion, we'll see how it pans out.

                      Settle down ERoyal....nobody called Tebow a bust. Some of us just think he is more human than others (and not worthy of a 1st round pick).

                      Back to Fox. Like I've been sayin, he is the perfect fit for Denver. Nobody else wanted to coach in Denver and nobody wanted Fox to coach for them.

                      I'm not saying he can't turn things around, but it's a tall order.

                            LOL, i'm fine. That's fair about you saying whether he's worth of his draft position. But in the 3 games he played, that's above average for a rookie QB. He is human, he has a lot of work to do.

                            He should be given time to develop, and he'll have his growing pains, and other things.

                            Then why did we have 5 other canidates come in for interviews if no one wanted the job

                            Agreed, should be interesting. But he did turn Carolina from a 1-15 team to playoff team in his first year, just saying.
