I'm reposting this from another thread...


Some of you dopes act like we hired a water boy to take over as head coach of this team. You're so blinded by hatred fueled by your silly fawning adoration of all things Mike Shanahan you can't see the credentials Josh McDaniels brings to the table. You're correct that he hasn't proven anything as an NFL head coach but no first year coach has so that's just an ignorant position. Here's a young man who has been an integral part of the best organization in the NFL for the last 8 years. He joined the team in 2001 and by 2004 was Tom Brady's QB coach and by 2005 was calling the offensive plays! Do you think Belichik elevated a young man to such a position so quickly because he liked him? Are you that stupid? Clearly the kid is gifted to become the OC of the best team in the league as a 29 year old.

In his time in New England, which encompasses 8 seasons, the team went to 4 Super Bowls, won 3 of them, one at least one playoff game every season, and had an average regular season record of better than 12-4. The guy has been around success and winning for the last 8 years. How much better of a background do you want from a new, young, hungry head coach?

Go ahead and keep stewing in your ignorance if that's what makes you happy but I say we give this guy a chance. I hope Jay Cutler remains the QB of this team, but if he isn't on board so be it.

Here's his bio:

Josh McDaniels enters his eighth NFL season and his eighth season in New England. He joined the Patriots on March 1, 2001 as a personnel assistant in the scouting department and assisted the defensive coaching staff for three seasons. He began serving as the Patriots' quarterbacks coach in 2004 and was named offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach on January 20, 2006.
McDaniels oversaw an offense that broke several NFL records in 2007, including points scored, touchdowns scored and most players scoring a touchdown. Under his tutelage, 2007 NFL MVP Tom Brady broke the NFL record for touchdown passes in a season (50) and led the league in both passing yards (4,806) and passer rating (117.2). Brady also set franchise marks in nearly every major passing category, while new wide receiver Wes Welker set the franchise record for receptions in a season (112). New acquisition Randy Moss broke the NFL record for touchdown receptions with 23 and set the Patriots' franchise record for receiving yards in a season (1,439). The Patriots offense also posted the franchise's highest average yards per rush in 22 seasons with 4.1 yards per carry and the team's 17 rushing touchdowns were the second highest total in the last 20 years.
In 2006, McDaniels helped integrate several new players into the offense, including free agent signee Reche Caldwell, mid-season acquisition Jabar Gaffney and rookie Laurence Maroney. In all, six new Patriots caught at least 10 passes, including Caldwell, who led the team with career-highs in receptions (69) and receiving yards (760). Gaffney, acquired prior to week six, became a starting receiver by the end of the regular season and was the team's most productive receiver in the playoffs. Maroney, splitting time with Corey Dillon, was the third leading rusher among NFL rookies.
In his role as quarterbacks coach, McDaniels has worked closely with Brady. In four seasons working with McDaniels, Brady has compiled the top four passer ratings of his eightyear career 92.6 (2004), 92.3 (2005), 87.9 (2006) and 117.2 (2008).
In 2005, Brady led the NFL with a career-best 4,110 passing yards, a number that exceeded his previous career high by nearly 350 yards and represents the third highest yardage total in Patriots history. Patriots quarterbacks threw 28 touchdown passes, tying the fifth-highest total for the position in franchise history. The mark was also achieved in 1986, 2002 and 2004, McDaniels' first season as quarterbacks coach. Also in 2005, the Patriots finished the season as the NFL's second-ranked passing offense (257.5 yards per game), marking the team's highest ranking in that category in 11 seasons.
In addition to assisting in Brady's continued development, McDaniels has tutored Matt Cassel, a four-year backup quarterback in college and a seventh-round draft choice in 2005. In the 2005 regular-season finale, Cassel threw his first two touchdown passes since high school as he led the Patriots on a fourth-quarter comeback against Miami that fell just two points short.
In 2004, McDaniels earned his first positional coaching responsibilities and worked with Brady to help the quarterback produce his then highest passer rating of his career (92.6) and the third highest single-season passer rating in team history. Brady's 28 touchdown passes ranked second in the AFC and tied his career high set in 2002.
Upon his arrival in New England prior to the 2001 season, McDaniels served as a personnel assistant and quickly expanded his role to include film breakdown and scouting preparation for the defensive coaching staff. He became a coaching assistant in February of 2002. In that role, his responsibilities included film breakdown and scouting chart preparations for the defensive staff. In 2003, he drew additional responsibilities working with the defensive backs
McDaniels began his coaching career in 1999 as a graduate assistant at Michigan State, working under head coach Nick Saban.

That is great! Now, lets talk about Josh McDaniels the personnel director and General Manager. You were one of the people screaming Shanny had too much power, yet you're okay with McD having the same power. Hypocrite!

Sadly, Cassell will get his head bludgeoned in KC. His only real chance of success outside of NE would've been Denver. He's got a sieve OL, marginal running game, borderline Division II Wideouts, and a defense that's a joke.

And somehow, the joke's on us?

Did I say I was okay with it? Anywhere? Ever? I agree it's not the ideal situation. I also agree the whole Jay thing wasn't handled well. But if Jay would have acted like a professional from the beginning I don't think we'd even be talking about this issue. It doesn't have to be a big deal at all but Jay's making it one. He's the QB of this football team right now but he's sure not acting like someone I want leading this team on the field. How about you?

I have been kicked down a recently with some "friends" that are afc west rival fans. Lets face it, we got knocked down with a couple big blows (Shanahan firing, Cutler possibly leaving), but if we can muster the resolve to get back up (getting Cutler on board) we could still be back on top...

So enjoy the moment BOB and the rest of the AFC west, this is a rare weak moment for our proud franchise, we will be back with a vengeance...
