08:01 AM ET 01.17 | It appears the Broncos can run the two-minute drill in the offseason, too. When Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning stepped toward the line of scrimmage this season, he often shouted "hurry, hurry" to get things moving. And Broncos coach John Fox plans to do the same when it comes to filling the team's offensive coordinator position. According to multiple NFL sources contacted Wednesday night, Fox plans to hire Mike McCoy's replacement before the weekend. ... Fox has to be on site in Hawaii on Sunday and is trying to wrap things up before his departure. He didn't have to go far to talk to one of the leading candidates, Broncos quarterbacks coach Adam Gase, and has formally reached out to the other, former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt.

"he often shouted "hurry, hurry" to get things moving."

Mixed in with all the other signal calls? No, I think the "hurry hurry" stuff was part of the audible, like "kill kill kill" or "Papa John, Papa John."

Tow minute drill wasn't the problem last Sunday...

The 30 second one was.

I'm surprised Fox doesn't just take a knee.

Fox might need to name his own replacement, by the end of the month!

Between Fox and Shanahan... neither seem to know how to take care of knees very well.

Pat Bowlen is NOT happy about that.

I thought Manning was the Offensive Coordinator? This will be as interesting as watching Bullwinkle pull a rabbit out of the hat.

That pic is the wrong hat.

Bizarre how suddenly McCoy becomes head coach material. He'll be fired by the end of the season.
McCoy ran that offense , did he? He should thank Manning.

Sneaky Pete trying to ice the kicker and giving him a do-over is close...

Seeing Pete melt down on the sideline was almost as much fun.

From where YOU were sitting, Mel. Here in Seattle it was met with a little less glee. Grumble grumble...

Fox did a lousy job in that game, Peyton had them on top! 30 seconds with 2 Time outs, that's a Quarterbacks Dream, do you think Eli would have taken a Knee? Coughlin would shoot him on site!
