Denver Broncos coach Jon Fox can hear all the talk about how good the the team is and he wants to shut down the noise before it gets too loud.
The addition of Wes Welker will only make the 2012 4th ranked offense better along with safety Quentin Jammer for the defense.
Peyton Manning is year removed from coming off neck surgery and is stronger.
Their running game should be better with rookie Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman giving them more explosive combination at the position than in previous years.
They are the favorites to win the AFC and the list goes on.
The team looks on paper ready to march to the playoffs, but don't tell that to Fox who knows that not one game has been played and that's where expectations meet reality.
"Just do things the right way," John Fox said, via Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post.
"It ain't complicated. If you won't do things the right way in this game, at the top of this profession, then you aren't interested in success. We want people interested in doing things the right way, who are interested in success and will invest in it. Invest themselves in it."
"Basically, I said, just don't mess up anything we might have already accomplished," Fox said.
"We talk about those things a lot, and we'll talk about it a lot," he said. "But everybody has to understand, whatever happens, happens right there between those lines. I don't give a rat's, you know what, what people say about us, or how we're ranked or whatever. They rank you at the end of the year when they hand out the trophy.
"You can't get wrapped up in all the noise. People can't know what's going to happen tomorrow, or when the playoffs start, so how are they going to know right now who's going to win the Super Bowl? It's about the work.
It's about getting it done so you can be in, and win, the last game of the year."
