John Fox spoke this morning at the AFC Coaches Breakfast which is part of the NFL Owners, GM and Head Coach's meeting in Florida. Obviously we knew that Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning would be a huge part of the conversation.

When asked about the 'drastic change' the Broncos have gone through so far this off-season, Fox admitted that the chance to get a player like Peyton Manning caused the team to adjust it's thinking.

"Every offseason there is going to be change. I don't think any team in history has stayed the same from one season to the next. We had an opportunity to get a great player like Peyton and that makes you adjust."

Fox made sure to say again that he appreciates what Tim Tebow was able to do for the Broncos in 2012:

"Tim did some great things for us a year ago and I'm forever grateful for his efforts. We started off 1-4 and were able to win our division, make the playoffs, have a very exciting victory in our stadium against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He took that step for us and now he's moved on and we wish him nothing but the best."'

As for the offense moving forward, Fox and the Broncos know that it could look similar to what Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts had done in the past.

"He’s done it a certain way for 14 years and obviously had great success. We’d kind of be silly if we wouldn’t take some of what he’s done in the past, and utilize his strengths, and his comfort zone."
