Let’s all send along good wishes to John Fox, the most successful coach the Panthers have ever had. Fox faces heart surgery this week in Charlotte and will miss at least several weeks as the head coach of the Denver Broncos. But he’s a tough guy and I’m sure he will return if there’s any way possible to do so before the end of the season.
Fox had some discomfort Saturday on a golf course in Charlotte – the Broncos were on their bye week, and he still owns a home in Charlotte – and was told later he could no longer put off the aortic valve replacement surgery he had hoped to get in the offseason. Get well soon, Foxy.
“We were giving him a hard time and trying to mess up his hair,” Gross said of Delhomme. “It doesn’t mess up, though. It just goes right back to perfect.”
That’s the sort of play that will get a whole stadium excited. As “Riverboat” Ron Rivera showed once again by going for it in the first place, he really has changed his stripes.
