Default It's official: Fox and McCoy are the most conservative clowns in the League

It was bad enough last year when Fox & McCoy kept Tebow chained to the pocket and only let Tebow off the leash when the Broncos were down by 13 points with 5 minutes left in the game.

This year, they're doing a variation of this theme with Manning taking snaps. Fox is so conservative that they only time he'll ever go for it on 4th down is when it happens by accident during a No-Huddle offense.

McCoy is such a numbnut that today he called for running plays on the goal line when the clock was running out.

These two clowns are dumb and dumber! Thanks, Elway, for giving us the League's most inept and conservative head coaching staff.

Dude, Houston's D was incredible, all game. I was so impressed with them. There was 0 separation from our wide outs and when they did get some they dropped the ball. Hats off to Houston. They are for real.

didn't the Carolina fans warn us about this when Fox was hired and Orton was the starter? i seem to recall a couple of them telling us we'd regret his hiring because he was happy with boring and uncreative offenses in Carolina. run, run, throw it deep, punt.

The Broncos were one defensive stop from getting the ball back in Peytons hands with around 2 minutes left. As long as Ive seen Fox coach, hes been excellent at clock management and has consistently not shot himself in the foot.

Well, the question is: was the Houston D incredible in spite of the inept Broncos or because of the inept Broncos?

Two weeks running, we've just made 2 teams look like they're on the way to the Super Bowl.

Manning looks anemic, Willis is a non-factor, the D can't stop anything on 3rd and long, and our coaching staff makes one head-scratching move after another. Oh, and Elway is working really hard on his "I am really concerned with this team" face from the VIP Box.

Trust me, we'll be lucky to finish with a .500 record.

i'm more concerned with the sluggish starts. either drops,penalties or blown assignments and the drive stalls until we get way behind and then we finally start having a offensive brain.

the clock management isn't a huge issue if we can start off faster and more consistently.

You are absolutely correct, but beside the point for some people. It is way more fun to call for the heads of a coaching staff after a tough loss to a superior opponent.

Last year, they were a top 10 defense and this year they were #1 going into this week, so...

They just might be if they stay healthy. They are playing as we'll as anyone right now. Three teams are 3 and 0. They are two of them.

And what can Elway do at this point anyway? Please don't say: work the waiver wire.

I disagree, but .500 won the division last year. Just saying.

I would be much more comfortable going 9-7 minimum. I think 10-6 is a real possibility.

I really hated the first and second down runs on our last TD drive. Wasted a ton of time.

I'm amazed at how dumb coaches are with clock management time and again.

Yeah. I mean I could live with the first down run, but after that time needs to be conserved AND we have Peyton ****ing Manning. No need to go hyper conservative. If it were Tebow back there, I'd understand. But let Manning throw the damn ball.

If its me, I pass 3 times, then consider running on 4th down if the other 3 don't work.

You can throw JDR in the mix as well. At least twice on third down plays he had Von dropping into coverage. Kind of like Rob Ryan dropping Ware into coverage... Just not smart.

The slow starts are something I am not worried about. As evidenced by our 4th quarter play and flashes through out the games show the potential and ability is there, but the rhythm and chemistry is still a work in progress.

Most worried about Manning getting pounded. We knew this year would have lots of ups and downs.

Those running plays with 4 minutes to go were stupid. It just bled thw clock dry.

And our fans... WTHeck do they not get about being quiet when the offense is on the field? Seriously...don't make a sound when the offense is on the field. Sit on your hands if you have to...
