    So what is Denver going to do? Hire Kubiak? O'Brien was changing the culture from the Kubiak-led Texans. And part of that was the intensity and speed of practice. It's not like Kubes is going to go in and do what O'Brien was doing.

    This story is red meat for every hard-nosed, smash mouth, grade-a American football fan out there. Damn glory boys, loafing at a practice.

    What's more recent...2-14 with a coaching staff that's not here or 9-7 with the current coaching staff/roster

    Not disagreeing with your overall premise (the peyton can lead us to a superbowl right now)...but to call this current team a recent 2-14 team is probably not that accurate.

    It's not even "probably" not that accurate, it's "definitely" not that accurate. This is a 9-7 football team.

    2-14

    Not fixed, with Manning we get a bye to the 2nd round so we can't have a 1st round flameout.

    They say that teams are direction reflections on their head coaches

    B'OB - Fiery, get in your face and tell you how it is
    Fox - Laid back goes with the flow

    Peyton can make pretty much any coach look good. If the Broncos won Sunday then Fox would still be the coach.

    Could be "one-and-done", no? There's no "first round" if they're wild card. :eek:

    I guess I am confused...everyone keeps talking about Peyton Manning possibly coming to the Texans. But isn't he under contract for another year or two in Denver? I can see him retiring if Denver loses The Thomas connections and regress in their offense. Or getting a coach he doesn't agree with. I guess what I am asking is How could we get Manning short of waiting for his contract to expire?

    Midway though the season, it became an orchestrated fluke.

    Case Keenum didn't stand a chance!...:eek:
