Of all the "candidates" mentioned John Fox makes the most sense

Not sure how I feel about a coach coming off a 2-14 season.

Then again the guy never had a great QB to rely on, and we all know that's how a team stays competitive year in and year out. I'm also left to wonder how much of that is on some really bad GMing over the last few years.

makes sense, 9 years HC experience but maybe still hungry since he didn't win it all. Been to a SB. Hard to believe he would field a defense as bad as the broncos have had over the last decade.

Mark it, Melikey.

Fox has been a good coach. I wouldn't hire him because there were situations this year where I felt he may have given up on his team, but I'd definetly interview him.

He took over a 1-15 team and left it a 2-14 team. I agree the dude needs an interview, but no reason to pointlessly slam Fewell for no reason.

He just rode that same team into the ground? That might be why...

Well I'm on board as loving it. Up unitl 2 seasons ago, he would have been the hottest coach on the market. Knows how to build a defense. Has tons of experience. Is ready for a change. Get. This. Guy. Now.

Well, he did produce more wins as an interim coach for the Bills than Fox did this entire year.

And I don't mean to diss Fox. He's been one of my favorite coaches until this year. There were spots this year where he tossed in the white flag, and that makes me hesitant.

Maybe Tebow can teach him to never give up!
