    John Fox new Denver Bronco Head Coach

    A tweet from johnelway: I am excited to announce that John Fox has agreed to terms to become the 14th head coach in Denver Broncos history.

    Also received a text from a while ago.

    I am pretty excited I wanted either Fox or Dennison. Defense should improve so that is a plus.

    Re: John Fox new Denver Bronco Head Coach

    This is an interesting hire. Fox was able to achieve marginal success in Carolina, (3 winning seasons in 9 years) but I wonder if this hire is less about who Fox is, and more about who he isn't. (McDaniels) and by that I mean, he's a guy with head coaching experience, who isn't going to demand control.

    Re: John Fox new Denver Bronco Head Coach

    Hmmm......not sure how I feel about this hire yet......

    Denver Broncos hire John Fox to take over coaching reins - ESPN

    He'll have is work cut out for him though - hopefully they get things turned around b/c the last few years have been dreadful.

    Re: John Fox new Denver Bronco Head Coach

    I am not a Broncos fan but personally I don't think I could be to happy with the hire. He acheived mediocraty at Carolina and only won 2 games this year. His last couple years he teams have seemed to of gone down hill. But I guess with the coaches that were available, there weren't to many options.

    Re: John Fox new Denver Bronco Head Coach

    I like the hire. His teams like him, even when they are losing you don't hear all the players turning their back on him. No drama, food defense. I think the Broncos ownership will make it easier to succeed than Carolina's. They got rid of Peppers and such.

    I agree the last couple years weren't much of Foxes fault. The panther ownership didn't provide fox with much.

    Also agree with whoever said its every McDaniels isn't.

    Now bring on Fairley or Bowers. Get the Dline turned around.

    Re: John Fox new Denver Bronco Head Coach

    Would you rather have the DT or DE?

    I would have to say DT. If they switch to 4-3, definitely DT. If they stay with the 3-4, I would prefer DT but either or would be fine. With almost every team switching to 3-4, I hope the broncos go back to the 4-3.

    We seem better built for 4-3 then 3-4. 3-4 DTs are hard to find. Ayers and Doom on Ends. Jamal Williams and Fairley at DT. DJ Williams and Woodyard for OLB. Mays or Hunter at MLB (also drafting an MLB). and Secondary basically the same. Hopefully resign Champ.

    Defense gets a lot of blame but I don't think much can be put on them. The offense was amazing at 3 and outs, Tebow seemed to help the offense in that department. Having Doom out for the year created no pass rush, making the secondary look horrible.

    As for the offense, o-line is fine. maybe fine a replacement for harris. Guy always seems hurt and if Tebow is the starter he is now the blindside. With Fox here, hopefully he can get DeAngelo Williams to come to Denver. Williams, Moreno and White sound pretty decent. Tebow will get better with practice and experience. WRs seem pretty fine as well. Maybe trade Gaffney for a pick to use for defense.

    Wow that turned into a small novel.

    Re: John Fox new Denver Bronco Head Coach

    Haha yea I agree. I think I want Fairly too, woodyard bugs me seemed like he would over run a lot of plays and also miss quite a few tackles. Wouldn't mind a new linebacker. Also, need to find a saftey as Dawkins best years are definitely behind him.

    Re: John Fox new Denver Bronco Head Coach

    Denver still has to pay Shanahan and McDaniels next year so they didn't have high dollar money to throw around. Fox is a decent hire. He's coached in a Super Bowl and reached the playoffs a few times with Carolina.

    It's definitely an improvement over McD**chebag. He came in with extreme arrogance and ran off players and made one stupid decision after another on draft day. I'm just happy Bowlen finally saw the light and canned the punk.

    The Broncos will be back.

    Two of the main NFL bloggers on CBSSportsline are split:

    One loves the hire:
    Elway gets the right man - CBSSports.com

    The other is skeptical:
    Fox needs to change - CBSSports.com
