Fox’s return could commence with a game from the booth


Broncos coach John Fox has returned to Denver, more than three weeks after undergoing heart valve replacement surgery.  And while there’s still no timetable for his return to the sidelines, he could return to the stadium before he resumes his usual coaching role.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, there’s a “legitimate possibility” that Fox will spend at least one game coaching from the booth.

Fox has been in regular communication with his team, and it’s likely that he’ll gradually increase his workload until he is cleared to actually attend a game.

It’s still unclear when that will happen.  Until Fox can resume his regular responsibilities, Jack Del Rio will continue to be the interim head coach.

  1. All I gotta say is that everyone has figured out the Broncos offense, so it’s harder for Manning to do as much damage as he was doing earlier this year…

    As for the defense, their defense is solid, but injury’s have absolutely killed them time after time. They better hope that defense is healthy by playoff time because as we all witnessed Sunday night, Manning is not a cold weather QB.

  2. This seems silly. With he and Kubiak, if doctors have cleared him for physical activity (including running and exercising), he’s cleared to walk along the sidelines and yell.

  3. I am a huge Peyton Manning fan but I can’t make excuses for his big game failures any longer. Enough is enough and the facts now are just too overwhelming. The voice in the back of my head has been telling me this for year s but instead I would just follow the Herd and ESPN in defending him. Greatness isn’t just playing great when conditions are ideal and easy. It’s got me thinking that I may have been duped by the media about his All-Time Greatness all along. He’s great but you can’t be All-Time Great with these games and playoff failures. How do you get OWNED by the guy they so often compare you to? Unbelievable. BTW, for all of you that use the excuse that he plays against Belichick here’s something to consider. Drew Brees averages 32 PPG has 10 TDs to 1 INT and passer rating in the 120s against Belichick. It’s time to stop making excuses and call it like we see it and what the facts say it is. He’s a soft, dome pampered QB with a fire no bigger than a match stick that wilts like a flower in the cold and crumbles like a cookie under pressure
