Josh McDaniels under the microscope

Written by Juan Cena on Sunday, March 28 2010 and posted in SWRT

While taking a look back at the first year of Josh McDaniels reign as the Denver Broncos' drill sergeant head coach, The Denver Post dropped this little gem about McDaniels' relationship with Patriots' QB Tom Brady during the 2005 season. This was when McDaniels became the Patriots' quarterback coach (though in reality he was pretty much the offensive coordinator) :

So what happened in McDaniels' first season of coaching Brady, the league's best quarterback? The two went three weeks without speaking to each other. Brady went on to have a Pro Bowl season, and the Patriots made the playoffs. And, two years later, McDaniels, by then officially promoted to offensive coordinator, helped Brady set an NFL record with 50 touchdown passes in a season.

Clearly, McDaniels and Brady got past their spat.

The Post brought the subject up as an example of a problem with getting well with others that pretty much became to identify McDaniels first year as Bronco's coach. Problems with Jay Cutler (who was traded for Kyle Orton) and Brandon Marshall in the offseason were briefly overshadowed by a quick 6-0 start at the start of the 2009 season, but then went 2-8 the rest of the year.

While this could be written off as the pitfalls of a first year head coach. But with a probably trade of Marshall, and a brewing quarterback controversey with Orton and Brady Quinn, season two of the McDaniels regime
