In a football sense, we are extremely lucky to have this caliber of a coach to step in.

Get well Foxy!

Glad to hear it. Will he still be calling defensive plays?

Get well Fox.
Thankfully DEN has HC B on retainer to step in.
DEN wont miss a beat. If anything, i think DEN plays even more aggressive, and Manning takes the offense into overdrive.

Del Rio is a decent coach and we have a lot of talented coordinators. This is also a veteran team and the captains will make sure we rally around Del Rio for the final stretch.

JDR will still be calling defense as well. Basically Manning will make all offensive decisions so really JDR just will be standing in a different part of the sideline.

Never been happier to have JDR on board.

That will be until I find out that the one thing they still leave Foxy responsible for is phoning in the challenge flag decisions.

No offense, Foxy.

If Fox was like some other HCs in the league where he calls plays on one side of the ball I could see this as a disruption to the team on Sundays. But since Gase and JDR have those duties I don't see the team looking much different on game day. In fact I expect better use of challenges/time outs.

Where it will affect the team is during the weeks. Game film, planning etc. fox has a fantastic football mind and that won't be there preparing for games.

This isn't good.

The amount of time the HC has to spend with media, roster transactions, game day decisions, and so on really take up a lot of time. All time taken away from actually looking at the defense.

Del Rio has done this before. He's got almost a decade of experience handling all those responsibilities. I am sure he will lean on his coordinators a bit, but I don't expect a dramatic step back if there even is one at all.

Will JDR wear a suit on the sidelines?

The only important question:

What's JDR's record in Jacksonville in terms of challenge flags?

Done what? Juggle DC/HC jobs? That's news to me. I thought he had a DC in Jax?

I know what you're saying though, but when there's a certain amount of work that needs to be done (film study, going over defensive calls, scouting an opponent, etc) as a DC then there's no getting away from that. These guys already spend 10-12 hours a day doing one job, trying to do two now is when sh*t happens.

Case in point, look at KC's defense last year and this year. Outside one one/two players it's the same personnel but now with a full time DC instead of Crennel stupidly trying to do both HC/DC gigs and sucking at both because of it.

You remember when he and Mike Nolan were wearing suits and the NFL, because of its monster Reebok contract, changed the rules to only let them wear suits twice a year, and they had to be Reebok created suits?

What I'm saying is I want JDR in a bright orange, Nike designed three piece for the Sunday night Chiefs game.

I personally think this sucks.

We're down one HC who the players really liked playing for and respected. And now we're down a quality DC because he's moved to HC.

I would have preferred Studsville be promoted to interim HC if only to deal with all the media bullcrap so Gase/JDR can continue to focus on their units.

I'm not sure Crennel lacking an assistant at DC is really what ailed KC.
