All emotions from Sunday aside, I'm not really sure the rationale of extending Fox. I get playing out the Manning/Fox string over the next year, but why extend him out?

It would certainly a ballsy (and in my opinion badass) move for Elway to say "we strive for excellence as an organization and have decided to move in a different direction".

I think a gutsy big move like that or trading Von for 3 high draft picks or asking Manning to restructure to add $5 mil to the cap space could light a fire under the team. The problem is, I don't see a coach out there that would make sense (the Quinn idea is intriguing).

I'd be ok with a firing or two, just to let the staff know that looking like complete garbage in the SB is not ok.

One strike away. Looked less than dominant when he came back and coming off a blown ACL. We'd be lucky to get a 2nd round draft pick for Von Miller right now.

I don't know but he was one of the most sought after coaches after Black Monday.

There are more ways to win than just rah rah guys.

Seriously, has any coach ever been fired after competing in a super bowl? Same goes for retiring after an MVP.

He will get an extension to boost his confidence. It don't mean s h i t though because if he doesn't produce Elway will can him.

he's living off Harbaugh's talent. I'd like to see him keep winning at Stanford for a few more years before I say he's ready for the NFL. Harbaugh was ready.

No way. That's hyperbole. Obviously his value is depressed right now but for a potential LT in his third year; I bet they could get two firsts and a third for him or maybe just two firsts but there's certainly value there.

Dan Reeves took us to three SBs before getting fired.

I'll even take it the next step. Imagine Shanahan came back and actually won the Superbowl.

Reeves got fired because of his lousy relationship with Elway.

That doesn't mean he shouldn't have been. After we lost to San Francisco 55-10, Reeves was finished here. It just took another 8-8 season for Bowlen to fully realize it.

A trade's not going to happen, but I'd PayPal bet $1000 that no NFL team would give up two 1st round draft picks for Von Miller right now. Maybe a dumpster fire team would give up two 2nds. Maybe a team would pony up a low 1st round pick, but I think a lot of Bronco fans are underestimating just how much his stock has dropped. And I'm as big a Von fan as you'll find on this board.
