He should have taken the Costanza approach with Bowlen:

I second the second part of that statement. Fox has demonstrated his ability as a HC already and has always provided a stable foundation in Carolina, even as the talent pool was decent, shaky, and then downright awful. He comes off as a very good leader.

Seriously, I think I like the idea of him building a good d and good running game and getting a good OC to work with Tebow. I think he'd be a really good fit!

I much prefer Fox over Dennison. I like the dynamic of an experienced older coach with the inexperienced (and hopefully bright) Elway and Xanders. Fox kind of reminds me of our best defensive coordinator in recent years - Larry Coyer.

From the videos I thought Koetter came off the best with Fox second. I'd be happy with either one, given that we aren't getting a bigger fish like Gruden or Harbaugh.

I was hoping to see us go towards a Pitt/Balt 3-4...never really "loved" the 4-3 but I'm sure he could handle a 3-4.

Not counting this past 2-14 season he had a .555 winning percentage in Carolina and 3 playoff appearances in nine years.

He's good but not "great."

Is it just me or does Xanders have no command of his interpersonal communication skills. Every video I've seen has him throwing out a lot of ums, looking away from eye contact, and never really commanding any attention. In that video with Fox he shakes hands weakly and immediately steps away. I don't want a pansy GM. But, I could be over analyzing, and It's good to see Elway who is the polar opposite in the appearance of Xanders. He's confident, if underqualified, but he puts on a good show. I guess time will tell.

I commented on this earlier. It's a sure sign of a deceptive man. I think him and Elway are going to clash on a regular basis and I expect to see Xanders tramped sometime this year.

2 things I noticed:

1. Bowlen was in this interview. Is this the first one he's shown up for? I can't recall seeing him in any of the other ones. Seems rather telling.

2. Fox referenced Elway's father when answering the question. He spent a ton of his early career on the west coast. Is there any history of a relationship there? He and Elway sure seemed to be getting along at the tail end of the video clip.

Interesting fact, despite Fox being viewed as a 4-3 guy through and through his first taste of NFL coaching experience came with Chuck Noll in Pittsburgh as the DBs coach, where they were (obviously) running a 3-4.

*edit* just rewatched the other videos and didn't see Bowlen in them. Maybe I missed him but seems like Fox is the only one he felt like showing up for.

Also, just noticed by damn it looked like Elway just jumped straight on questioning Dennison before he'd even sat down. I can't help but think Dennison getting the interview is an Ellis/Xanders idea (inexperienced HC the FO can control, both greeted him warmly by his nickname Rico). He fails to meet the biggest criteria John has vocalized as desirable for this job (previous HC experience).

Fewell is my favorite just based on those videos. He has a real positive energy and honesty about him that I think would translate to the players easily. Very self-assured, confident guy. Fox seems like the old pro, but also comes across as kind of a political schmoozer. Koetter sounds like he's in over his head. Same with Studes. Dennison, just judging from the video, isn't seasoned enough. Not ready.

That's interesting, specifically in regards to Koetter and Fewell, I thought Fewell came off like a guy that hopes he can do the job, while Koetter came off as a guy that knows he can.

Fox's Carolina teams have always had good to great defense with a run heavy offense, which is exactly what we seem to be searching for in a head coach. I think his downfall and reason for not having even greater success than he did was poor QB play. Delhomme has never amounted to anything better than a journeyman really and the year he did accomplish even a little was the year they went to the superbowl.

I'm really warming on the idea of Fox as the head coach and I think coupled with Tebow who (screw the haters) is going to be awesome, we'll have a playoff ready team if not by next year, the year after. It will be interesting to see if he tries to install the same D he had in Carolina or something new for the Broncos. If it's Carolina's 4-3 were definitely taking either Bowers or Fairley.

01-12-2011, 05:33 PM
The thing that concerns me is his age and usually a head coach needs a break after a long run with one team. Does he have the energy it will take to rebuild this team. I would rather give the job to a younger hungrier man with something to prove.

They are also going to let a fan call one play each week. Everyone twitters to Elway a play and he will pick one and make coach run it.

Also Cheerleaders now have to screw at least 3 fans a yr a piece. One of those 3 has to be a woman because they don't want to get sued. That way some lucky fans will at least get some tail. They will do those drawing at halftime of the home games.

But the best news is the drink a beer with Elway day. You get to sit around Broncos HQ and get drunk all day!!!!

This is where I'm at. Experience and stability (which this organization needs badly right now), respected, older but not too old (almost 56), defense background, probably has a lot of connections and contacts to form a staff. Ideally team him up with some younger coordinators, start playing some defense and running the football. And, hopefully, winning!

I agree with this, anyone who wonders due to his age have to realize that Coughlin is somewhere north of 60, Dick Lebeau is over 70, and so on. If he does a good job and say retires in 5-6 years, at the very least we'll be in a much better position because of it.

Fox is a bucket full of 'meh' to me. Nothing wrong with him being hired but if the goal is to get the most out of Tebow going forward, Koetter is the man you want.

Dream scenario would be Koetter as HC and Fox as DC. Tough to say if Fox would accept that after being denied the HC gig but if nobody else is calling, you never know.

Koetter could fill OC and QB coach with some combo of Helfrich, Grimes or Shula. Wasn't Shula HC at 'Bama when they were the only other school Tebow considered? Bring on Osborne as ST & TE coach as well.

Throw Fox a bone and let him pick his defensive assistants.

Like many have said....Elway and Co. are going to address the D this off season no matter what. I want Koetter calling the shots on O because he can smash mouth a run game (Jax), go vertical (ASU) & loves a TE threat....Miller or Lewis as FA's anyone?

Koetter with a proven DC seems more beneficial than Fox with a proven OC.

He did say HC experience, whether it be college or pros.I wouldn't mind Dennison if he got the job. I think he could pull this off.
I think we're in a situation right now that an experienced headcoach will have to be the way to go...
I think Fox is the best fit of all the available candidates.

Back to Dennison, they could have a different plan of action to assemble the rest of his supporting staff; coaches, assistants and what have you. They could bring at least a good DC...

Fox, already had some good coaches in Carolina that were let go with him.
His DC is a good one...

Quite serious SS.

And unless Fox absolutely smoked his interview, I don't think Elway & Co. have the balls to hire him.

We here on the 'Mane may understand that he's a better coach than his 2-14 Panthers suggest but to your average fan and the MSM...It's one helluva tough sell.

If you're John Elway, do you really want your first major move as an NFL exec to be hiring the ONLY coach who finished worse than Denver?

If it happens, I'll be okay with it because at least it will show some conviction. I just don't see it happening.

Koetter is a tough sell to JQP as well but at the end of the day, I think the front office will do what they always do and go with the offensive guy.

Dennison is probably the safest play from a public opinion POV but I hope they don't go that route.

I don't know. Fox isn't going to take a job as a DC. The guy did a pretty remarkable job at Carolina considering that he worked for a Bidwell-like owner and had pretty average to below average QB play for his entire tenure at Carolina. Turning a 1-15 team into an *almost* Super Bowl winner 2 years later is pretty impressive under those circumstances. When he says he's got a "blueprint" to turn the Broncos around, its hard to argue given the evidence. Regarding this past season, they lost one of the best defensive players in the NFL in Julius Peppers, and had to rely on the steaming pile of **** that is Jimmy Clausen at QB for the entire season.

You give this guy an arsenal of good defensive picks, in addition to his ability to field a good coaching staff, and return Dumerville, and the Broncos have the makings of a team that can turn itself around pretty quickly under Fox's leadership.

The other thing about your post that gave me pause was mention of Mark Helfrich. The dude was flat out bad at CU. I know he's done very well at Oregon, but that team is absolutely loaded with talent. Tebow needs a QB coach with extensive NFL QB coaching experience to bring him along. The thing that I do like about Koetter is that the QB play at ASU during his tenure was very impressive, and I believe that Helfrich was his QB coach at the time.

I'd be cool with Fox and while I'm not a McCoy fan - some continuity with Tebow would be a very good thing. Guys like Alex Smith that have multiple OCs their 1st few years in the league are almost destined to suck.

With Jake Freakin' Dellhomme at QB the whole time. Yeah I'm thinking Fox is the way to go...

And an owner unwilling to pay Julius Peppers and Kris Jenkins.

When is the last time you heard of the Panthers making a big FA move? When have you heard of them making an FA move that wasn't strictly a depth pickup at the time?

VERY cheap ownership. You pair him with an FO that can spend some money and a QB who can actually make some plays (Tebow) and we might see some real good things.

Most successful HCs hit it big their second time around. That means at some point the first time around they bottomed out and lost their job. You can't hold that against them. What you can say about Fox is that when the message was fresh he took a 1-15 team to the SB in two years, had three double digit win seasons over his first eight years, and was never more than a game away from .500 any of those eight years.

This while playing in a division that in his tenure had two Super Bowl winners, a third make it there (Fox), and three NFCC appearances (1 - Fox) in addition to that. Five of his first eight years the NFC South was putting a team in the final four. Only one division winner had less than double digit wins ('07 Tampa Bay, 9-7).

Coming to our weak ass division will probably feel like a vacation for him. In comparison we've had one team make it to the SB in that time (the very first year) and only two AFCC appearances. We've seen our divisional winner eliminated in their first playoff game five times over the past 9 years and all three of our wild card representatives failed to make it past the WC round.

In short, the AFC West sucks, the NFC South is a competitive division. Fox was set up to fail this year by a horrible owner. If Fox was in our division he'd be the best HC from day one.

I just think Fox can hit the ground running from preparing the draft to already having a set of assistants coaches in mind that would be able to work with him.

No surprises from him like a limited draft board, getting into shouting matches with his DC, and shutting out the GM on personel moves or entertaining offers on trading Lloyd/Tebow.

With Fox you get stability right from day 1 because he knows how to run a football team rather than learning on the job.

Also Carolina has made the most out of the first day picks when Fox was there, especially defensively and that's exactly what we need.

100% agree. My thinking exactly. This is what this organization needs right now. He's not an exciting hire but I think he's the smart hire.

Being in NC and having watched the Panthers since 1996-their first year, I hope John Fox finds a home in Denver. Fox is an excellent coach who amazingly won despite a mediocre talent pool (offense) in Charlotte. I remember when Fox came in replacing 1-15 George Seifert as head coach of the Panthers the big name floating around Charlotte was Steve Spurrier; thank God the Panthers went for Fox. In the Super Bowl year of 2003 the Panthers were a quality product with Delhomme playing way above his head. I still believe the Panthers didn't really lose to the Patriots, but just ran out of time. The 2008 team was also fun to watch and were great until Delhomme completely blew up in the playoffs against Arizona. From that point on ownership in Charlotte did everything possible to gut the team; yet John Fox stayed and stuck it out. Fox is a quality guy and I hope he lands with a quality organization like the Broncos. I expect Elway & Co. will right the ship out there and in my opinion hiring Fox would be a great first move. Best of luck to the Bronco nation.

Fox finished his nine years with the Panthers 73-71, but went 2-14 last year working as a lame-duck coach with his contract expiring and no hint that it would be renewed. Much of the Panthers’ veteran leadership was gutted by cuts and contract expirations, leaving him with a young team that became even more short-handed after a parade of injuries that began with weakside linebacker Thomas Davis and right tackle Jeff Otah, both of whom were key components of a 12-4 season in 2008.


This might ease a few concerns of hiring the guy

I don't think money will be a deciding factor in the coach because they have said they want the right coach and if that means spending more money they'll do it

FOX’S BACKGROUND IS ON DEFENSE, and he already knows that much of the Broncos’ rebuilding will be concentrated there. He coached 4-3 defenses in Carolina and from 1997-2001 as the New York Giants’ defensive coordinator, but said running a 3-4 alignment wouldn’t be a problem.
“Not really. It’s semantics,” Fox said. “Obviously there are some personnel things that aren’t that deep-seated. Everybody plays under/over, whether you originate out of the 3-4 or 4-3.
“A lot of it is pretty much the same. I think moving forward this season might be a bit different from other seasons because we don’t know if we’re going to be in a lockout-type situation or not. I think that will be discussed today.”



Interesting, goes along with what Med has been saying

The way the DP made it sound yesterday we were moving forward with what we had interviewed.

If thats the case, Fox and Fewell are the obvious choices in my opinion, given the state of our defense. Having said that, taking into consideration what Elway said about hiring a coach with experience, Fox is our man. No?

I would tend to agree at this point but IMO money is going to play a factor here....I might be very wrong...but I think they will pick Dennison

This might help ease your concern a little

A NINE year history of .500 ball and not once having winning seasons back to back is supposed to ease concern......Okaaaaaay.

Hiring a "Defensive Coach" doesn't really mean anything. Hiring a coach with a plan for the defense does. Case in point Brian Billick and Mike Nolan. Nolan is a great DC, his defenses as a HC were terrible, Billick was supposedly a great OC his defenses were amazing. It's about the best candidate for HC, not the best OC or DC. A great head coach will know the value of all phases of the game and it doesn't matter what his coordinating background is.

At this point I'm pretty convinced that Fox is the best candidate for the job.

Interesting, goes along with what Med has been saying

Fox's first NFL job was in the 3-4 under Chuck Noll in Pittsburgh, he's familiar with the 3-4 front.

It's fun having the teaser Vids. based solely on that I now think it's going to be;

Fox 65%

Dennison 35%

Unfortunately I suspect you are right. Clausen at quarterback doesn't look like a winning formula for the Panthers. Hey maybe we could get Jake Delhomme back?

All Panther talk aside.... Fox is very calm and level headed. He got on some people's nerves in Carolina for this, but if stability is what you're looking for he's just that. Even in the midst of such a horrible season as the Panthers had this year, there wasn't a lot of in-fighting reported in local media. He's a conservative coach who likes to run the ball and play defense. If he has the talent he'll open up the offense though. Case in point Delhomme's "above his head" year of 03 with Steve Smith, Muhsin. Muhammad, and Ricky Proehl he threw for 323 yards 16-33 and three TD's vs the Patriots in the Super Bowl. So with a good young QB and some talent Fox can and will open it up.

PantherFan,

Tell us about Fox's influence on the Panthers drafts, which have been pretty ****ty if I do say so myself.

Welcome to charlotte Ron, your the next lame duck coach that will get fired b/c of poor ownership...


This is the right move for the Broncos, best move they could of made. John Fox is just what we need... let the resurrection begin

Funny post I came across;

Personally, I'm glad John Fox is gone from Carolina. We did everything we could to make him successful. During his time w/us we surrounded him with weapons. Vinnie Testerverde, Matt Moore, Jimmy Clausen, David Carr, Tony Pike, Brian St.Pierre, Dwayne Jarrett, Keary Colbert just to name a few. We also got rid of all our dead weight such as Julius Peppers, Chris Harris, Will Weatherspoon just to name a few. We traded draft picks to get up and comers like Armanti Edwards in third round and Everitt Brown in the second. In spite of all this, John Fox could only get to 1 Super Bowl, could only get to 2 NFC championships but never had back to back winning seasons. What a loser...
