In the days leading up to Super Bowl 50, there were questions for plenty of members of the Broncos organization about Gary Kubiak taking over as head coach for John Fox before the 2015 season.
General Manager John Elway had the most pointed comments on the decision, saying at different points that the team made the move to get past their first game of the playoffs — something Fox failed to do twice in four trips with Denver — and that there was something wrong “if you can’t get guys excited about playing in the playoffs that time of year.” Speaking to the media from the Combine in Indianapolis on Wednesday, Fox shrugged his shoulders about Elway’s comments.
“I don’t really pay much attention to what’s said, whether it’s even about our own team sometimes,” Fox said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “But we’ve got our own set of issues. That’s kinda all behind right now.”
Fox said it was “unfortunate” that there had to be a loser in a Super Bowl matching two teams he coached in the past because he still has relationships with people in the Panthers and Broncos organizations. He said he congratulates “most of them” for their success while trying to get the Bears on track for a playoff run of their own.
