We coulda done worse. Of the candidates he was the best choice IMO.

It'll be nice to have a different personality and a defensive guy around here!

How does a coach go from a 2-14 disaster...getting the boot of out town on one team only to go to a superior franchise (us) and get the red carpet treatment? Unreal.

We seriously need the front office to step up and make the right personnel decisions for a change and maybe this guy won't continue to be a mediocre coach.

I am okay with it... Best choice from the lot we interviewed. We needed a head coach with NFL experience this time around.

Because many people aren't so myopic as to toss out a coach's overall track record for one crappy season in which he was saddled with a team that had zero offensive talent and Jimmy "I look like a retard" Clausen at quarterback.

inexperience in elway and xanders is new GM, they needed a known commodity and they got it. and more important to me, stability on defensive side of the ball.

went the safest route possible. I wanted Rivera so I was less excited about the outcome. Elway's first real test. Hope it passes with flying colors.

Bill Belichick went 5-11 his last year with the Browns...

a change a scenery can do a lot of good plus coaches learn from previous mistakes made...

not saying Fox will be great but you can't say he won't be because of one season...

besides, of the candidates to select from whom else is a better choice?...

at least Fox really wanted to coach us...which is more than we can say for the Harboughs, Mularkeys, and Gregg Williams of the world...

The Broncos will not regret this choice. What a slam dunk! The Elway era is off to a fantastic start. I'm ecstatic with this choice.

He's already impressing me. I like that choice. I hope he does as well w/ the OC, but I'm afraid it'll be McCoy.

When I first heard that Fox had been named as the coach, I was pretty excited.

But it's been almost 45 minutes, and as far as I can tell, he hasn't done jack and we have yet to win a single game since he's been here.

Good hire for you guys, I guess.

He's an SDSU guy so I like Fox but I think he is overrated. Three winning seasons in nine years. But with the state the Broncos are in, he's probably a good stop gap coach for a few years.

He did a hell of a lot more than Norv Turner with a hell of a lot less.

In Fox's first year with Panthers, they went from:

1-15 record, with a defense ranked 28th in points allowed and 31st in yards.

to

7-9 record, with a defense ranked 5th in points allowed and 2nd in yards allowed.

Color me excited about this guy.

This takes me from Meh...to WTF. That is an awful first hire. There's a reason the guy was out of football in 2010.
