    I know the perception around the league was that John Fox didn't do anything, but that just isn't true. Fox laid out the general things he wanted to see from the game plans that he let his coordinators develop. He'd also focus on areas of concern and make those priorities in practice. He helped keep an eye on morale, workload and also made sure the players focused on the right things. He is very good at doing press conferences and not giving ammo to the opponents. He is a very good head coach and his players LOVE him.

    Being a head coach during a playoff run is a lot more intense than being one after you're out of the playoffs and want to give the fans something to cheer for. I would say if JDR was our permanent head coach and he was going to claim to continue to call the defense then I'd be concerned. But he's not. And we need an experienced hand to take us into the postseason - and maybe beyond. A rookie head coach isn't the right choice for these circumstances.

    JDR is experienced, defensive minded and was a former player. He has the respect of the team and the perspective of years at the position to keep things even.
    All I can say is get well and hurry back Foxy.

        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.
        not sure if he already has during the bye week or they go hard during this week. Let us hope he did a lot of prep work last week.

          Seems like there was a big deal made out of a simple choice, no?

            $10 says Fox still wants to be able to 'Buzz' Del Rio if he wants a play challenged.

                You better hope Kaylore doesn't read your post.
                A head coach of a American Football team has got to be, fairly easily, the most difficult coaching job of any major sport. More players, a larger staff to oversee, multiple aspects of the game beyond offense and defense. You don't put a lesser qualified person in that position because you don't want to over complicate the more qualified person's job.

                            We are lucky that Elway and Fox built such a great staff. Couldn't think of another coach I'd rather have to fill in for Fox while he recovers.

                              No, I'm saying that's only what we visibly see the HC doing which is only 5% of the work he does.

                              Fox has already said that he does a lot of self scouting/scouting of the opposition and the point is that it's a full time job.

                              I don't think for a minute JDR can do the work for two people equally effectively.

                                I agree, and that's why I think it could have a major impact to our defense.

                                I guess the question really comes down to this: Is JDR still going to be a full time DC and do the bare minimum as a head coach (injury reports, pressers, gameday decisions) or is he going to be a full time head coach and do a little bit of the defensive responsibilities as well.

                                I know as a fan, I would have preferred Studesville as HC and then hiring a consultant/part time hire as RBs coach because I don't know which Jack Del Rio we have now. The guy who's committed to being a DC for this team or the guy who's going to take this opportunity to be a full time HC to promote his future prospects in this league.

                                Ask yourself this question: If you were JDR, which one would you choose?
