Cool post, bro!

But I disagree. This is a quality thread with a legit topic for a team that went (and will likely forever go) One and Done under John Fox.

this is a good topic....Bowlen is not as patient as he used to be.

IMO, that letter he sent to the fans after the B-more loss was a warning shot at the coaching staff.

...You realize we won a playoff game under Fox just last year, right?

He coached the team to 8 wins, with the current Jets punt protector. He's still a great coach. If he DOES have some down years, he'll be allowed to quietly "retire".

...um, it by definition dismantles your "one and done" statement. This is precisely why no one could take your contribution toward the discussion seriously. If Manning drives down the field in OT, you'd say "he won that game, not Fox".

I think the Seahawks should fire Pete Carroll. After all, he's only been one and done... Russell Wilson won one game and Marshawn Lynch won another.

Delhomme won all 3 of the playoff games in 2003 to get to the NFL Championship, not Fox.

Same for 2005 when they made the conference championship.

It was all Fox the 2 out of 5 playoff seasons his teams were one and done though.

So as you can see clearly here. All the games that Fox has an affect on are losses.

Mike McCarthy will always be one and done. How many years before he gets fired?

Probably around the same time as Belichick, because he can't win the big one. He's fine for the regular season and even the playoffs, but he will never win a championship.

Those superbowls weren't won by him....

2004 it was won by Corey Dillon

2003 was lost by Fox obviously

and in 2001 it was actually patriotism

Then Tebow also lost the next week to the Pats by 35 points, and he is solely responsible. Sorry, but you don't get to cherry pick which games a player is responsible for the win and which games the coach is responsible for the loss.

Coaches get the credit and blame for all wins and losses, on the teams they coach. That is the way it is and the way it will always be. If you believe otherwise, well as Rev said, you can't be taken seriously.

No, just that you needed to bring it up like it was some master opinion by you. They either get fired or quit. Many times they quit when they see the writing on the walls. Fox is so far from a conservative game plan (in 2012) like Reeves was giving us.

Phillip Rivers won Fox that first division title. Or so I'm told.

Well, chalk me up as one who'd love to have Gruden coach our team. I always thought the guy wanted to get back into coaching, but maybe he really does like that ESPN gig.

He's a good offensive mind, a fiery guy......and he turned Gannon into a pro-bowler. See if he can get Manning his second (or more) ring.....then stick around to mentor Twilight.

Just a hope......but it won't happen.

I'm guessing he hangs around for 4 yrs. 3 with manning and the first one without him. Then he's gone.

Yeah, the guy has turned the culture and attitude around the team from joke to a winner. 2 division titles and regardless of what fans see or think, this team has big deficiencies on MLB, DT, RB and lack of speed at WR. And the idea that he will tank his job and end up 2-14 is a joke. That happened when his old owner chopped his balls off and was prepping for the lockout by cutting salaries of players.

Well if you want to get technical Demaryius won that game but Fox gets credit. HC gets the wins and losses.

Trust me, Fox will be fired. The question is: WHEN?
depends on how many SBs the Broncos win with him.

My guess is he has to get a ring while Manning is here. If he goes all conservative and one and done again next year ( assuming we are in a similar playoff position to last) he might just be done next year. But probably he is here for all of Mannings run.

After all, look how well the Chargeless have done since they dumped Marty after a 14-2 season , but playoff loss. That's worked out REAL well for them.
A closing window was slowly, but completely, shut with Norv taking over. Supposedly he is a great OC, yet the team declined every year.

We have a new OC and despite the misgivings most have about Fox and conservative plays, I think the play calling will be more agressive next year.
McCoy being gone is going to be a plus. I have to assume that the coaching staff and Elway are as aware of the problem areas ( OL, DT, LB, RB that can POUND the Defense, CB/Safety, and KICKER) as anyone here. They will definitely do their best to address these. With better weapons the play selection should open up, not continue at the same level.

If bad coaching costs us another playoff exit early next year, Elways decision to throw the whole teams future on Manning will be in danger of being made out as a bad decision. He will not let that continue, and some heads will roll, and/or responsibilities be changed.

The Broncos wasted an enormous opportunity this year, and the motivation to get past that will be impressed on everyone. Use the past and move into the future, or get gone is the theme.

Its been that way for a good 4 or so years.

I'll give you that it seems worse with the website being completely broken and non-functional and all.

Fox is a good HC, he'd have to lose the team to get fired. It's tough to fire an HC that's liked and respected.

But like ScottXray said above, more getting out-coached in the playoffs and Elway/Bowlen could pull the plug.

No. But lately it seems there's quite a few stupid threads being started. This is just one example. Maybe armchair isn't worst but some of these threads are ridiculous. There's even a seperate thread started for an argument that was in another thread
