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.

Stop. Your players play bad in the playoffs they lose. That simple.

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.

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

Clearly, it's all Fox's fault.

co-signed.
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.

Our secondary gift wrapped the game for them with putrid play on the field.

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?

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

At least take away any say he has in play-calling and get a new OC. Anyone who thinks McCoy is a competent play-caller has lost his mind.

Unfortunately it won't happen. Bowlen is loyal and will look at the record instead of the actual games. I don't blame him, but still.

If they don't fire Fox....they should get rid of McCoy and get a decent Offensive Coordinator in here with some balls!

Hard to see either McCoy or Del Rio getting much attention for head coaching gigs after this

I would have preferred to go for the first down but punting with about a minute left and being up a touchdown is not terrible. What is terrible is giving up a long bomb for a TD and then not even trying for a score with time and 3 time outs before the end of the first half and before the end of the game.
