McDaniels can also be credited with bringing Elway back in the fold. He's invited John Elway out to training camp a number of times. Also during training camp, McDaniels made the players go over to the ropes and sign autographs, mingle with the fans that were baking under the sun. His drafting got significantly better as he had more time to prepare than his first draft.

That being said, McD micromanaged everything, that was his downfall in Denver but its Bowlen's fault mostly for not having a real actual General Manager to support McDaniels, hence the bad trades. Bowlen promised this to the fans when he canned Shanny, the HC would no longer run everything.
