The other thing is he was very, very aggressive, and he wanted to win on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. A lot of coaches tried to sit back and win on defense. As a quarterback, why I liked Mike was he wanted to win it on the offensive side. If we needed a first down late in the game, we were going to be aggressive offensively rather than punting and putting the game in the defense’s hands. That’s something I admired about Mike, and it led to a lot of success when I played with him.
At least John Elway understands the sanctity of possession in the NFL. Does John Fox?
