Fox on Panthers game: 'It's a business trip'

   Now in his second season as the Denver Broncos head coach after nine years with the Panthers, John Fox said he and his team are treating their Sunday visit to Bank of America Stadium as another business trip.

   Still, it will be different for Fox, who is returning to the city where he still owns a home and led the Panthers to the Super Bowl a decade ago.

  "I've been at this for 25 years and I've had a lot of homecomings so it'll be good to get back and see some old friends and relationships I built over nine years there," Fox said on a conference call Wednesday. "It's a business trip and we're getting our team ready. We had a good practice today. We'll see where it leads us."

   Fox's time in Carolina ended badly with his final team going 2-14 before he was released after the 2010 season. Asked if he remembers more good times or bad times during his run with the Panthers, Fox leaned to the positive side.

  "I tend to approach things as the glass half full," Fox said. "We did get to the Super Bowl and we got to a couple of championship games, had three playoff appearances so by most people's calculations that's pretty good."

   With the Broncos scheduled to arrive in Charlotte Friday, Fox said he intends to make a stop at the house he built and still owns at Quail Hollow Club.

   "I'm sure I'll get there at some point," Fox said.
