John Fox is more than a coach in Denver. He's a cause. All that conservative stuff fans, and the media and everybody else, grew so tired of in Charlotte has captivated Colorado.
Fox always was a superior game manager. He adjusted well. When Denver and San Diego went to overtime Sunday, you knew who was going to win.
Fox is winning with superior defense and a quarterback who runs a wishbone. If you were looking for a coach of the year candidate at the moment, you certainly could look to him.
The Broncos are one game out of first in the AFC West, behind Oakland, and play at Minnesota Sunday. The Raiders play at Miami.
If anybody claims to have seen this coming, they're lying.
