Bowlen messed up. At the time, I couldn't believe Bowlen was just handing McDaniels the keys to the kingdom, and putting his trust in him over everyone else in the organization. Did McDaniels employ some cold war personality adjustment technique to make him believe everything he said? Then the funny part was when a large majority of fans believed them too.
I think John Fox is no the right coach for the Broncos ... it's another extreme emotinal reaction from Bowlen. I think keeping Xanders and not hiring a much better GM is a mistake. Bowlen should hand the reigns to someone else. Maybe that's why John Elway is here. Hopefully, he can see things clearly and make unemotional decisions.
