Was the Broncos’ problem in their hierarchy, or their coaching?

Kiszla: Gary Kubiak is wrong choice if John Elway wants strong coach

But I wonder how much autonomy Elway is willing to give his coach. Or does Elway want to dress down Denver players when they give a subpar preseason effort against Seattle and advise Peyton Manning to relax when the veteran quarterback is in a funk?

When John Elway shredded his players over the past few years, was he undermining John Fox's authority? Or was he simply doing for Fox what Fox was either unable or unwilling to do himself? If it was the former, then frankly, it's no wonder Fox got out of Dodge.
