The Denver Broncos will be without their head coach for the game against the San Diego Chargers. Broncos Head Coach John Fox will need a few weeks to recover after having heart surgery. He will go under the knife on Tuesday to replace an aortic valve in his heart.

Prayers for coach Fox.

With John Fox unavailable for the game, the Denver Broncos will have to use a temporary head coach to call the plays for the team. The Broncos still have not named their head coach, but speculation is that Jack Del Rio will be the interim head coach for the team. He has the most experience as a head coach on the team’s sideline. He was recently the head coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars and can bring that experience over to the Broncos.

It will be interesting to see how the team reacts without their head coach available in the game. If Mike McCoy was still on the sideline for the Broncos, he could have been the interim coach for the team. Instead, he will be looking to beat the Broncos in his first meeting against his former team.

    Please. We all know that Big Head never runs the play that is called in. If they even call plays from the side line…. Got to make sure that they don’t use this as motivation on us, play our clock eating scheme, and keep that head off the field as much as possible. But first things first, need to get this W today against the Skins. Let’s do this bolts!!

    Watching NFL Network.. they skipped right over the segment they had on the ticker about the Chargers (which I had been sitting through an hour of Dallas bull crap to see)… they went straight into RGIII instead. What is their problem? I know PR has an interview this morning… but, still… why even put it up there if you don’t want to talk about the Bolts…. just keep stroking Dez Bryant’s temper tantrum ego, Mr. Irvin & Mr. Sapp… you don’t gotta pretend to be unbiased… we all know it’s your favorite teams, or nothing… they are so weak, man.

      Trust me, I know all about it too. Drives me INSANE

        Oh…. and the Chiefs get another back up QB this week… in fact, he is a back up to a BACK UP QB!!! How the heck do they keep getting this lucky? Then these a-holes will talk about how “lights out” KC is, and how they are the best thing since sliced bread for not letting a team score more than 17 points. DUH!!! You mean guys who are making their first NFL start can’t score? I’m shocked…. so ridiculous. They are just going to waste a good team’s playoff spot this year. So lame.

        • Gunnar Martin

          Ridiculous how many backup QBs they’ve gotten to play this year. Man, will they be shocked when they have to play Peyton and Philip twice this year. Let’s just make sure that that playoff spot they’ll be stealing won’t be from us.

          I haven’t watched a single KC game and have been a tad ignorant about them. So I ask, do they stink? I have a hard time believing the are as good as their record touts. Are they beneficiaries of an easy schedule or?

          • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

            Yes. It’s like right before they play each team, the QB gets taken out. Their offense drags it’s feet all game, and wins at the end, because the other team just can’t score… mainly because the QB is awful. The Texans AND the Bills started QB’S that hadn’t played an NFL snap. The Titans played with their backup QB too.

    Apparently, the Charger’s were without a coach on Sunday!

    • BruisingChargers

      Exactly lol

  • BruisingChargers

    Apparently, the Chargers were also missing a coach this past Sunday. And, apparently KW is not the “WIZ” we all thought he was at play-calling (horrible play-calling that last series) and McCoy say’s “We stand by the calls we made” really, really? Oh well, maybe we will get a decent draft pick or 2……….

    This might give a slight edge to the Chargers with McCoy around. He prolly knows a few things about Denver others don’t. of course, if Why-Hunt is doing ALL the play calling then nevermind…..
