Comparing Munchak to other 2011 hires
By Paul Kuharsky
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- John Fox is in Year 3 of his tenure in Denver.
He’s got Peyton Manning at quarterback, which puts him in a better situation than any other coach who was hired in 2011.
A top-flight quarterback obviously keys an organization.
"You definitely feel that you’re growing as a team otherwise it’s a lot of hard work for nothing, but I feel that we’ve improved in the three years," Fox said. "I guess my point is we’re not satisfied."
Of the eight head coaches hired in the NFL in 2011 -- including Jason Garrett who took over for Wade Phillips in Dallas late in 2012 -- Munchak currently ranks sixth in winning percentage.

Overall: 32-11-1, .727
Quarterback situation: Drafted Colin Kaepernick in the second round in 2011. He was a Super Bowl quarterback last year, but isn’t the same guy this season.
