Agree wholeheartedly with this. In a semi-related note, I think Jeff Fisher was hired to do the same thing at the Rams. He needs more talent, and maybe a QB, but the Rams made great strides in 1 year under Fisher.

I still think we won't win a Superbowl with Manning but I think Fox is building a team that will allow us to insert a QB similar to Pitt with Ben or even Phillip in Diego where we will be successful for a while.
The first part of your sentence remains to be seen. I believe we can and will, but we'll see. However, if i am reading the 2nd part of your sentence right, I think you are right on. Fox and Elway are building a complete team that is not necessarily dependent on one guy.

Fox is good in all ways Shanahan wasn't and vice versa.
There's some truth to that. Fox is a people person and doesn't let his ego get in the way, but is conservative to the point of stubbornness. Shanahan is a brilliant offensive mind & aggressive, but let his ego get the best of him at times(Maurice Clarett, refusal to relinquish GM duties, relationship w/ Elway etc.).
