I'm happy for the interviews McCoy is getting. He was with Carolina from 2000-2008 mostly with John Fox, before arriving in Denver in 2009. John Fox is clearly comfortable with his conservative play calling. Keep games close, posses the ball and win.
I will submit that with McCoy who was under OC's like Dan Henning, and then Fox himself from 2007-2008 was brought up very conservative. I believe it's in his DNA to call games more conservative. Offenses he called plays for have generally performed below average. Is it fair to count the Tebow year? Is it fair to attribute a good offensive ranks with 2 great running backs in Carolina in 2008? Sure all this has to be factored in. But in the end you have a conservative OC who loves to balance his offensive. This sounds great right? WRONG!
Manning is simply taking over and changing a lot of his plays - duh. Manning rightfully understands we are going to have to compete with New England. They are they top scoring team, and McCoy's play calling simply won't get it done. NFL has changed, Manning understands, McDaniels (yes it pains me) understands. Having McCoy leave, and allowing Manning to hand pick an OC that can complete with New England would be in Denver best interest.
I believe McCoy leaving would allow our potent offensive to fully blossom. Mike has excellent experience and I wish him the best. Fox needs to let Elway and Manning pick the next OC and simply get out of the way. Good luck McCoy sorry your not going to an AFC West team where Del Rio could predict 80% of your play calling. Also stay away from Cutler he's a coach killer and head case.
