At the time Twitter exploded with rumors of his arrival at LAX on Sunday night Jack Del Rio was with John Fox at Del Frisco's steakhouse in Denver the Broncos head coach said Monday. Del Rio was also present at the Broncos facility for meetings the day after the team's 52-20 win over the Eagles and Fox was leery to discuss his coordinator's status as a candidate for the open USC coaching job. Fox's team had what the coach calls a "win Monday" at its facility to start the week — captains watch tape on their own and the team lifts and runs in the morning. Such a schedule Fox said gives his players a shorter day and his staff more preparation time for next week's opponent Dallas. Fox also spoke briefly about what he's seen from Peyton Manning so far in 2013 and though the coach has avoided making any sweeping prognostications about a season that's just four games old he didn't hold back on the praise for his quarterback. "It's not even close from this time a year ago" Fox said of Manning's improvement. "We're more aware and we kind of started where we left off (last year). I think we're just continuing to get better and it's still early in the season. I expect us to get better. People look at me funny when I say that."
