Broncos coach John Fox isn’t interested in building for the future.
Fox said shortly after signing his new three-year contract extension that the Broncos’ only priority is to win the Super Bowl in 10 months, and they’ve built a team they think can win right now.
“I’m proud of what our teams have accomplished, but our expectations are much greater as we pursue the Super Bowl championship that our fans deserve,” Fox said. “We got closer this past year, but we came up short. So right now all the eggs are in the basket for ’14 and doing everything we can to bring that championship back here to Denver.”
The Broncos have made no secret of the fact that they’re all about winning now, spending big money to attract Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward, DeMarcus Ware and Emmanuel Sanders in free agency. They know they’re running out of time before Peyton Manning is past his prime, and they want to win now. Adding three years to Fox’s contract is nice, but Fox isn’t thinking years ahead. He’s thinking about winning in 2014.
