John Fox will coach the Denver Broncos from the sideline

The four-team FXFLs first season is over, and the developmental leagues founder is eager to get started on Year 2.I think we had a great first season, given the accelerated timeframe we operated under, says Brian Woods, commissioner of the league. We are very pleased at the response from the public. This model has proven itself. We believe we have something that works, with utilization of minor league baseball parks and the sponsorships weve created.Two of the FXFLs four franchises, the Brooklyn Bolts and Omaha Mammoths, drew decent-sized crowds to such stadiums. The Boston Brawlers didnt fare quite so well, and the Blacktips were a road-only team.Woods also was satisfied with the media reach the league had through regional sports networks and ESPN3. There were 80 million households who get those regional channels, and ESPN3 is available in about 90 million households.Most of the leagues players were cut by NFL teams before the season, and a handful wound up on NFL rosters or practice squads even as the FXFL was playing its short season. That, after all, was the idea in the first place.At the end of the day, we are a developmental league, Woods says. If some players needed current game film, they got it. There is real merit to having a developmental league.So much so that Woods envisions a bigger league in 2015, with more affiliations with minor league baseball teams and stadia. Hes targeting such cities as Memphis, Austin, Oklahoma City and somewhere in Florida. Woods also expects Brooklyn and Omaha to return.I want it to be a manageable expansion, ensure the product on the field will remain solid and something the fans will have an interest in, he says.OUT OF THIN AIR: Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Jared Odrick prepared for Sundays game at mile-high Denver with a hunting trip to Utah.Odrick and a friend shot coyote and hiked last weekend in the mountains near Randolph, which is at 6,300 feet — higher than Denver.Ive played in altitude before, Odrick said. It can be different if you want it to be. Its just another thing to overcome.Odricks mini-vacation was possible because the Dolphins had last weekend off following a Thursday night win over the Bills.CHAMPS TAKE: Although the only football Champ Bailey plays now is fantasy, he still has a scouts eye on the game he played for 15 seasons. He has faith in his former team getting right back on the Super Bowl Express.The Broncos (7-3) have lost two of their last three in large part because their makeshift offensive line cant keep Peyton Manning upright or jumpstart the ground game.Bailey, who officially retired this week, starting the countdown to his likely Hall of Fame speech, said angst-ridden Broncos fans should relax.Well, I think up front, theyre going to find something theyre comfortable with. They have to. Obviously, theyve made some changes. But theyll be good, Bailey said. I know the defence looks better than what we had last year. So, thats really the key: Dont turn the ball over, and get turnovers. They do that, they win. Too much talent not to.Theres never a good time for a slump, but better now than later, Bailey said.Its happened at the right time, not in the playoffs, Bailey said. This league, its about as tight as it gets. I swear, six or seven weeks ago, youre talking about Seattle is the best thing you ever seen. Now, what do you think?New England was in trouble then, too.Exactly: Whats wrong with Brady? They cant keep plugging guys in, Bailey said. Its week to week. Cant get too high or too low — on anybody, I dont care who they are.Therefore, Bailey still likes Denvers chances to hoist the Lombardi Trophy, warts and all.Very good chances, Bailey said. There are a lot of teams with good chances, but if theyre playing the best they can play, they can win it, easily.PREPPING FOR SPEED: Tennessee defensive co-ordinator Ray Horton has never coached against Philadelphia with coach Chip Kellys fast-paced offence. So he tried something a little different to help prep the Titans for visiting the Eagles on Sunday.He went to the tape. No, not the coaches version with all the breaks between plays edited out. He showed them a copy of the TV broadcast, complete with Troy Aikman, from the Eagles 53-20 loss at Green Bay last week.So they get the tempo and how fast everything goes, Horton said. I think if you havent seen it, and I havent seen it in person, I think our guys now have an idea of what it is because theyve seen it actually like they were there just watching it on TV. They wont be surprised or shocked. I dont think they will be. I think we have a great game plan in how were going to do it and what we do and well be ready to go.Defensive coaches will watch a copy of the TV broadcast to pick up a quarterbacks cadence. But with the Eagles, Horton didnt care about the words, simply the speed and tempo that offence runs so none of the Titans are caught off-guard by just how quickly Philadelphia moves.But you still have to experience how fast it is, Horton said.ELI-TIKI TIFF: Eli Manning didnt like it a couple of years ago when former teammate Tiki Barber took a shot at him over his leadership abilities. And he didnt like it when Barber said in a recent radio interview that coach Tom Coughlin should be fired.Thats very nice of him, Manning said. Its good to hear from Ol Tiki.The Giants (3-7) have lost five straight games and are in danger of missing the playoffs for a third straight season.Manning said he didnt hear all of Barbers comments but got the gist of what he was saying, noting everyone has the right to his opinion.The 33-year-old Manning said the comment wont affect the players or the coaches.Well, I think it depends on kind of what your opinion of the player is, Manning said. I think that can make a big difference in how you react to it.Barber has fallen into disfavour with Giants fans for saying that Mannings leadership was somewhat comical. Barber later added that Coughlins tough coaching style led to his decision to retire, which he announced in the middle of the 2006 season.The Giants and Manning won Super Bowls after the 2007 and 11 seasons.___AP Pro Football Writers Barry Wilner, Teresa M.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls said goodbye to forward Carlos Boozer on Tuesday, using the amnesty clause to cut the veteran forward after four seasons with the team. Boozer came to Chicago in a sign-and-trade deal with Utah in July 2010. The two-time All-Star averaged 15.5 points and nine rebounds in 280 games with the Bulls. He had one season left on a five-year deal worth roughly $75 million. The amnesty clause allows a team to waive one player during the current labour deal and have 100 per cent of his salary taken off the cap and the tax. The 6-foot-9 power forward is still owed the money. "Carlos epitomized professionalism in everything he did for the Bulls both on the court, and in the community, during his time here in Chicago," general manager Gar Forman said in a release. "Over the lastt four seasons, Carlos productivity helped elevate our team to another level.ddddddddddddI have nothing but respect for Carlos, and certainly wish him the best as he moves forward." The 32-year-old Boozer took to Twitter to thank the team for his four seasons with Chicago. The Bulls also waived forward Lou Amundson and guards Ronnie Brewer and Mike James as they continue to clear salary-cap space for the signing of free-agent centre Pau Gasol and the first NBA contract for 2011 draft pick Nikola Mirotic. Chicago made two trades on Monday. It sent forward Anthony Randolph, two second-round draft picks and cash considerations to Orlando for the rights to Milovan Rakovic. It also traded forward Greg Smith to Dallas for the rights to Tadija Dragicevic.
