Schmidt Wrote: ESPN, January 14, 2015: Lackluster finishes rankled ElwayJohn Elway on John Fox:"I sat down here last year in front of you and told the fans how we're just as disappointed this year as we were last year and the fact that we didn't play better at the end of the year," Elway said. "I think if there is one thing that you would like to have and you want to feel, at least in the last game you want to feel like you go out kicking and screaming. When you're right there, and I think two years in a row it didn't feel like we went out kicking and screaming because of the fact the way we played the last game.""Elway added that he was "disappointed we didn't have more fire" against the Colts."Elway further described what he wanted in new coach: "And so the next guy, what do I look for? I look for a guy that's very smart, that's competitive, that is aching to win world championships like I am."So John Fox didn't have these qualities? John Fox is a steady guy...doesn't show a lot of emotions, but certainly more than Bill Belichick. When you get to the top, there is a fine edge separating the teams, and a game can swing either way on a bit of luck...or an injury. New Orleans is a team with a lot of fire, and look what it got them.I wish John Fox the best. John Elway will be hard pressed to find a replacement of his caliper.
