Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings – What does John Fox’s absence mean for Denver? (Shutdown Corner)
Unfortunately, the Denver Broncos’ season added a layer of uncertainty during their bye week.
Coach John Fox felt ill on the golf course Saturday, and will have heart surgery this week. It has been reported he’ll be out anywhere from a few weeks to two months. If he’s out two months, that would be the remainder of the regular season.
Competitively, how might Fox’s absence affect the Broncos, whose season will be considered a failure if it doesn’t end in the Super Bowl? Is this the Saints collapsing without Sean Payton? Or is it the Colts thriving without Chuck Pagano?
