He inherited a terrible team with some serious issues, a few days like this were always a possibility sadly.

That's not to say I've been impressed with him so far, but the team he took over sucked a lot.

The bright spot for me has been Allen as DC. I like his style of D, with a good MIKE linebacker and some DB's who (apart from Champ) aren't absolutely terrible I think the D could be good under him. Hopefully Moore and Carter can develop this year and be capable NFL safeties by the time next season starts, and we get someone with eyes and a pair of functional hands to take Goodman's spot.

Oh course, Fox gets the "inherited" terrible team pass but McDaniels doesn't.

The government is full of hypocrites who play favorites, the people are full of hypocrites who play favorites...

but yet they both b**** at each other.

Just. Curious how did you plan on paying those skells when their contracts were over. Those plus KUper, doom, Bailey.hell we had to cut salary this past year to get under the cap numbers and do not forget clady, royaL.

Yes, because McDaniels is an arrogant, egomaniacal, power mongering, douche biatch who alienated player and staff alike, while harboring video-taping cheating scum.

Any coach, even good coaches like Fox/Shanahan can lose, but it takes a special kind of classless trash scum to alienate everyone while doing so.

You know what's worse than cheating loser scum? Clowns who support that kind of scum.

** And for the record, McDaniels DID get a pass in his first season, it was his douchebag antics like condoning cheaters that got him fired in his second.

McDaniels inherited a borderline mediocre team with a young, promising offense. He also inherited more draft picks and cap space than this team has had in its history.

Fox is here to clean up McDaniel's mess.

The offense has regressed tremendously under Fox. We are in the bottom of the league far as offense goes. Defense is still the same. The ONLY reason why Fox is the HC is because he was cheap. We didn't go after other coaches because the price tag was too high. Fox was not Elway's first choice.

It sucks, but Broncos organization is in complete disarray. We need wholesale changes all over, and not just patch up jobs that Bowlen/Ellis implements to save money.

Unfortunately we have the same problem Raider fans suffered from for years, ownership woes.

Sure Bowlen and Davis are polar opposites in style but where they are simular is they grew old and incompetent. We are a headless horse.

Not quite true, we have finally gotten a rush offense back again, sadly our pass offense has fallen off the charts completely. There are 3 reasons for this, 1 poor WR play, DT has yet to run a good route this year, Royal has not been getting open at all, it looks like he just doesn't care anymore, and Decker while has has been getting open has been running some wrong routes and not shown elite hands and concentration. Orton was bad and Tebow is worse, between them they have missed a lot of passes.

Fox was not impressive last season either... I am starting to wonder why we even got him.

This.

If he goes back to Orton he should be fired immediately. I'd rather watch today's game over and over again than go back to Orton.

He should be fired for his lack of decision making. You made the change knowing full well that Tebow is raw and very inexperienced. While it may look bad you have to give the guy more time. Now you have two QBs you have given up on.

Eventually players start thinking and not playing because they know they are going to get axed.

That is just my opinion, you just can't flip flop on guys.

Them going back to Orton won't surprise me one bit. Is it good for this franchise's future to do so? Obviously not. And therefore it's the choice they will make. They've established a pattern at this point.

What about having a battle royal of sorts; give each QB two series to show what they have. Just keep rotating them throughout the whole game. A desperate experiment of sorts.

Fox is dealing with a rabid fanbase that's allergic to decent QB's, so that doesn't help.

I really dont think Fox is that bad of a coach

I do think McCoy is that bad at offense though, and right now Tebow is that bad at throwing the ball

sigh

Well Lynch is tripping all over himself to point out how badly out coached we were today -- and he used to be a Bronco. The problem is that we are still paying 3 head coaches, Fox is safe.
