For all the accolades and attention Tim Tebow is generating for the Denver Broncos‘ turnaround, one person is getting decidedly inadequate acclaim.
That man would be head coach John Fox. ESPN’s Rick Reilly gives the coach his due in his latest column.
“This whole thing has been so fun,” says Fox’s wife, Robin, an in-demand jewelry designer in her own right. “The snow in Colorado, the holidays coming up, everybody wanting to talk about Tebow. We’re loving this.”
What they should be talking about is how her husband took a team that was steaming wreckage when Josh McDaniels was fired exactly a year ago this week and has them in the playoff hunt. They should be talking about a coach who wins with Tebow running it 22 times in one game (versus the Chargers) and only four in another (Vikings). They should be talking about a coach who’s made it fun to be a Bronco — and a Broncos fan — again.
Reilly’s right. We haven’t talked about John Fox enough. Kudos to Reilly for wording a far better column than we ever could have, anyway.
