John Fox spent eight seasons in Carolina from 2002-10, coaching the Panthers to five post-season victories and a Super Bowl appearance (XXXVIII). On Sunday, Fox will be back on the sideline at Bank of America Stadium — this time coaching the apposing team, Denver.
“I have a lot of great relationships there,” Fox told the Denver Post. ”It was the place that gave me my first opportunity as a head coach, so I’ll always be indebted for that. I still have a home there. My sons live that way. It will be good to be back. But again it’s the NFL, this game’s only fun when you win.”
During his time in Carolina, Fox enjoyed ground game dominance and defensive success, but ultimately finished with a 85-82 career record with the Panthers. In Year 1 in Denver, Fox saw similar results, leading the league and rushing and improving Denver’s defense, the team was able to squeeze into the playoffs with an 8-8 record and win a playoff game thanks t

The good news for Denver’s offensive line is that the injury sustained by guard Chris Kuper on Sunday is not as bad as it could have been. The bad news is that he’ll likely miss a month of football due to a severely sprained left ankle.
This is not the first time Kuper has had ankle woes, as a dislocated left ankle abruptly ended his 2011 season in January, causing him to miss...
Just a month ago, Tracy Porter in street clothes on the Denver sideline was a welcome sight for any opposing quarterback.
Now teams might actually prefer to see him back on the football field.
Porter, who leads the league with three game-sealing interceptions since 2009, hasn't played in a month while dealing with problems related to a seizure he had over the summer.
The NFL has finished with their investigations on the alleged use of the illegal sticky substance in the Monday Night game against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 15.
However they were fined $20,000 for not providing the towels when asked and failing to cooperate with NFL officials.
Statement from the NFL on the investigation.
"Following a review of the San Diego Chargers...
The focus in the Denver Post is that of Champ Bailey and AJ Green. Of course it is a Denver paper so they praise Bailey as shutting down AJ at key moments (like when Dalton under throws the ball). Bailey got beat by AJ flat out. If the Bengals had anything else to test the Broncos D then they would have won this game. As it stands the playbook should look like this from here on out...
You remember former NFL tailback (read: bust) and USC star LenDale White, correct? White was drafted by Tennessee and also played for the Denver Broncos. He was reunited with Pete Carroll at the Seattle Seahawks, but failed a drug test and got suspended.
He was pretty excited about Colorado becoming the first state to legalize marijuana.

Peyton Manning has won four NFL MVP awards. The Denver Broncos quarterback is no stranger to what it takes to win the NFL MVP. In fact, although he did not play a single snap during the 2011 NFL season, which turned out to be his final one with the Indianapolis Colts, many felt as if Manning still deserved a few votes for MVP as it proved just how important he was to his team and...
The linebacker sprawled out and barely got a hand on Trindon Holliday.
Not enough of a hand.
Eight seconds later, Holliday was gone. The NFL's shortest - and quite possibly fastest - player says he has never been caught from behind and it didn't come close to happening last Sunday, either. The 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Cincinnati went down as the longest...
The Denver Broncos have a pair of undrafted rookies making an impact, so why can't teams like the Patriots have the same success? One of the Broncos is actually a former Patriot.
