Default Fire John Fox. NOW.

Wasted 3 timeouts near end of 1st half. Wasted 2 timeouts end of regulation with chance to win. Ran conservative running play with a chance to go for 1st down with 7 point lead to win game.

Indefensible. I figured Fox's conservative mentality would cost Denver eventually, just hoped it wouldn't be in the playoffs.

I agree he's terrible beyond words. But there's no way he's getting fired coming off of a 13 win season, unless Manning wants him gone.

This game was probably the biggest choke job in Broncos history. Will haunt my nightmares WAY more then the Jacksonville loss ever did.

Not to be a d*ck, but are you like 18 years old or something? I can't imagine anyone who actually lived through the Jacksonville game making this comment (I was at the game, by the way)...

Saturday's loss was no doubt a heartbreaker, but the Jacksonville loss was absolutely crushing. As a franchise and a fanbase, after all of the failures in the SB in the 80's, choking away the #1 seed to an expansion team (I think it was J-ville's 2nd or 3rd year in the league) was about as low as it can get. I mean, Rahim Moore's mistake can't hold a candle to Michael Dean Perry's, at least in my book. There was just a really bad vibe after the J-ville game, like we were snake-bitten and would never get over the hump. After Saturday against the Ravens, sure, I'm bummed, but WTF? We blew a game we should have won, but at the end of the day, there are 2 Lombardi's in the trophy case, and we have PFM and a very good defense to look forward to for the next few years. Plus, NE would have probably spanked us in the AFC championship anyway. I hate to admit it, but their offense is ridiculous, and we just don't match-up against them very well...

Anyway, there's plenty of blame to go around for the Ravens loss, with plenty of questions to be answered and issues to be addressed. But good Lord, things aren't that bad in the grand scheme of things. Sorry to pick on your post, but the hyperbole and douchebaggery have been through the roof on this site for the last few days, and I needed to vent. Everyone just needs to take a deep breath remember that we are two years removed from a team where Kyle Orton and Nate Webster were two of our more prominent players. It's just a game, and everything will be okay. Christ, there only a handful of teams in the league that wouldn't love to trade places with us right now...

3 Manning turnovers and shoddy play in the secondary is not a recipe for success.

Clearly, it's all Fox's fault.

Couldn't believe we reverted to Tebow play calling when we have Manning.
Unforgiveable. Didn't even give us a chance to win the game by calling it that way.

We just Norv'd / Martyballed all at once.

I don't have a problem with being conservative there. I have a problem with two safeties getting beat deep with 40 seconds left on the clock and Baltimore out of timeouts

His conservative play lost the game. End of that 4th was pathetic. Only fitting he kneeled with 2 timeouts to ice the cake.


Something needs to change.

I wanted to vomit when we kneeled. WTF was that. We need 25 yards to give Prater a shot.

Fox should be fired, because this team will NEVER go to a Super Bowl, much less win one, with him as coach. Too conservative at the absolute worst times.

This should teach everyone that it wasn't "Tebow" play calling. It was Fox/McCoy play calling and Tebow was doing everything he could to make something out of it.

Tim Tebow is the only QB who's won John Fox a playoff game since 2005. Maybe he doesn't know everything about QBs.

Same with Elway, McCoy, Rex Ryan, and the rest of the NFL. Bunch of JAGs who got passes to the good ol' boys football club if you ask me. If it wasn't for the NFL the lot of them would be lucky to teach high school PE, so why would we treat their opinion as some kind of infallible decree?

All I know is the results on the field. When Fox and McCoy pulled their chicken **** "lets back into the W" antics with Tebow he still found ways to win games. They try that with Peyton Manning and we get embarrassed from half time on. If it wasn't for Holliday this came wouldn't have even been competitive.

So maybe Tim Tebow not being in the league next year, should that happen, says more about the inability of NFL personnel men and coaches to assess what it actually takes to succeed than it does about Tebow's ability to play QB.

They did what they could with at best a CFL QB and Kyle Orton for one season.

You are probably right about that... but look at it this way. His only year starting with a real young roster, he goes into a playoff game as a huge underdog and get a win. PM dominates the season and goes into the playoffs with what most thought was the best team in the league, he goes into the game as a huge favorite and just choked (with huge help from the defense). Think about that. Tebow 1-1 in the playoffs with the Broncos. PM 0-1.

Are we a better team with PM? Heck to the yeah!!! There is no denying that. The season was awesome, but there is just something about him that changes in the playoffs. It's not hate. Just look at his playoff history. Last year was a surprise, the playoff loss to the Pats didn't feel so bad. This,... I just heart broken.

13-3 LET'S FIRE OUR COACH.

Hey, why do we make so much fun of the Chargers for firing Marty after his 14-2 season? Isn't because it was an awful idea?

Regular season don't mean chit. Our schedule was pretty easy after the first 5. I don't know if he should be fired or not but my god, you have Peyton Manning and your play calling makes me think you have Jake Delhomme. You play to win the game. Baltimore should have never even gotten the ball back.

If the chargers can fire Marty Schotenheimer after a 14-2 season, the Broncos can fire John Fox after a 13-3 season.
