Fox Reflects on First Quarter

Posted Oct 3, 2011

With the first four games of the season complete, Head Coach John Fox discussed the state of his team during the early stages of his first year with the franchise.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Together, as one collective unit, the Broncos watched the tape.

With the first quarter of the season behind them, Head Coach John Fox and his team examined their first four games of the year.

And together, they’ll look to correct their mistakes and improve as the season marches on.

“At the end of the quarter I like to watch the film together, so we watched it in sequence — offense, defense, kicking game,” Fox said Monday after the team meeting. “I thought it was important for us to kind of measure where we are.”

Instead of breaking the team up into position groups for the film session, Fox wanted all eyes on one screen.

“I like doing that so everybody kind of knows where everybody is,” Fox explained. “In the past I’ve seen where you go off into your little rooms and say, ‘Well, we’re fine. It’s those other guys who messed up,’ so I like for the whole team to see it.”

What the players and coaches saw was the early stages of a long process.

As Fox reiterated Monday, the 1-3 record to start the season is a reality the Broncos must accept. It’s not the start anyone in Denver wanted, but there is room to grow as Fox and his staff continue to evaluate and mold their players in year one.

“We’re four games into it,” Fox said. “We’ve got a lot of young players out there right now. They’re getting better.”

“I’ve been encouraged by how a lot of those guys have played.”

Fox pointed out several areas where his team can improve. Turnovers must be limited. Discipline must be displayed each snap as the team looks to develop more consistency and attention to detail must be heightened in all areas.

His team’s 49-23 loss to the defending champions served as a valuable learning experience against the NFL’s elite.

“You have to be very exact, precise, disciplined and consistent. I’m talking about not just what to do, but how to do it and the technique with which you do it,” Fox said. “(The loss to Green Bay) doesn’t taste very good, but it’s one of those things that shows how precise and exact you have to be against good teams.”

Under Fox, the Broncos are striving to become one of those competing for championships.

He understands the fans’ desire for winning football and affirmed his eagerness to provide it.

 “We want to win now, too. I don’t blame them,” Fox said. “There’s a certain element of that to everybody in this building. Like I’ve said, we’re done with the first quarter, and we have three quarters to go.”
