Somewhere in this quote is one of the reasons John Elway fired John Fox

Broncos' Gary Kubiak is fine with John Elway's high expectations

“If you make any kind of decisions that you want to do something, all you have to do is tell me why. I want a reason why. I want to know that it is thought through, that when we made this decision it was the best decision we could make. If I don’t get a why, then you need to help me here.”

To speculate wildly, it might have been the offensive line changes, a restriction on Peyton Manning's ability to audible, leaving the team's playoff chances to a coin flip, or a slew of John Fox Specials. Chances are, we'll all hear and read over the coming months more hints of what drove Elway and Fox apart.
