Giving John Fox his due

Broncos' John Fox seeks 100th win, endorses Peyton Manning for MVP

What sets Fox’s record apart is he won eight games, including one in the playoffs, with Tim Tebow at quarterback during the 2011 season. He’s won 12 more so far this year with Manning at quarterback.

“I’ve had a great staff, great players,” Fox said. “A lot goes into that. It’s not one guy. They put it on your record or tombstone or whatever, but I just happened to be head coach during that. But there’s a lot of efforts and I appreciate all those efforts. We’re just worried about this week. We’ve got a good team coming in.”

We've had our share of debates about John Fox's decisions on fourth downs, to be sure.  We'll save that argument for another day.

Leave little doubt that John Fox's management style generates respect from players, coaches, and, well, just about everyone around the league.  He lets his players play and his coaches coach.  And he does it without a lot of arrogance, ego, or PowerPoint presentations.  In the time of cholera Bill Belichick,  there's something to be said for that.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
