Don't ask Panther fans about Fox, most are not neutral enough about him to give you a fair assessment... I think he's a pretty decent hire, especially if he is able to get the right offensive coaches there... I'd be more concerned as a Denver fan with the fact that you are going to have Tebow as your QB next year... That means another losing year... The guy will not be able to take a team to the playoffs...
Tebow is the reason that Denver was not able to get their top guys on the list, very few wanted to come in and be forced to use him as the QB

I'm no Panther fan, and have never pretended to be. I'm as neutral on the team as you can get. I wish them well.
But John Fox was a horrible coach. I tried to tell a coworker of mine 3+ years ago that Fox's days were numbered. Little did I know that Richardson doesn't and won't fire people.
I was utterly floored to hear that Fox got another NFL job at all, much less as quickly as he did. He has never impressed me. His slow, conservative approach and inability to fix the same problems that plagued his team over and over, tells me he's just not cut out for the job. (sounds like Paul Maurice)
Kahuna, you will be hard pressed to find many NFL executives and coaches that don't respect what Fox brings to the table... They have a much better understanding than you or I... Fox is a very good coach that turtles a little... His defensive knowledge is probably in the top 10 NFL among all coaches and assistants... Like I said, I think he should have passed because of Tebow, but we'll see
If Carolina keeps the pick, I can't imagine they take anyone but Fairley unless something shocking happens at the combine... Maybe Bowers? I don't think they'd reach and grab AJ Green, even if he might end up the best player in this draft
