Denver Broncos News: Horse Tracks - 5/26/13

Woody Paige sat down recently with John Fox to reflect a bit on the playoff game. when prodded a bit by Woody about the thought process, Fox admits that the only decision that still "gnaws" on him was the one to run the ball on 3rd and 7 before that fateful Hail Mary. Fox stated: "you're talking about the wrong play. I would change what we did on third-and-7 the series before...That's the one that gnaws at me. We get the first down there, and Baltimore can't stop the clock again, and the game's over." I for one am THRILLED (Elway pun intended) that John Fox is rethinking his conservativism--one can only hope this realization transfers to Sundays in 2013.
