Dear Mr. Elway.
You got what you wanted in John Fox. An old-school head coach that reminded you of the old days, when the Orange Crush and a tough running game was the foundation of your success.
But the NFL has moved on and good defense and running the ball isn't enough anymore. It's a passing league where QBs toss for more than 400 yards on a regular basis—even rookies in their first game.
It's all about four-receiver sets spreading out the defenses, unpredictable play-calling and multi-purpose running backs and hybrid WR/TEs.
QBs don't have to play the game primarily from the pocket, you don't have to take every snap from under center and dual-threat QBs are gaining ground all over the NFL.
As a fan, I can appreciate your intention of establishing a solid power run game. But as a fan, I also want excitement and plays that sends chills down my spine: Imaginative running plays and a breathtaking passing game.
I know you are building from scratch, but don't be afraid to let it rip—because after last night, it really can't get any worse.
