John Fox is messing with fire. The Broncos coach announced Monday that Kyle Orton is officially the team’s starting quarterback. Two days earlier he had Brady Quinn play with the second team offense in a preseason game against the Bills. That’s right, Tim Tebow had been demoted to third string on the depth chart. I know half of Denver is in a near-riot panic over this news, but that’s not my concern. My real issue here is with Fox.
Does John Fox realize what he’s done? Did he even bother to consult with the Lord before making his decision on the pecking order of his gunslingers? If not, I wouldn’t be surprised if some unforeseen accident befalls him.
If there’s a thunder storm, I wouldn’t go outdoors if I were Fox. I’d keep a doctor close by in case a heart attack strikes. And by goodness, I wouldn’t even bother risking my fate by driving on the streets of Colorado. Who knows what could happen? Though if he did end up in a collision, it’s probably an Auburn fan who’s responsible.
I’m not saying you can’t make bold decisions like this, John Fox. I’m just saying watch out for you’re well being if you’re going to challenge divine order. It’s not going to be a pretty afterlife if you challenge Him.
