"Good is not good enough" That's why the Broncos cut ties with John Fox - just wait, until next season. That "Good" will be "awful"

It looks like it took about 2 hours from the time John Fox and the Broncos parted ways for Foxy to say "No" to the Jets. A new record?

John Fox left the Broncos. If one certain Bronco retires I'm pretty sure the division is ours. By ours I mean the @Chargers

A #Broncos radio guy that dislikes John Fox?! Say it ain't so. Nothing is Peyton's fault, all coaching.
