Default some more kudos for mcdaniels

guy is an absolute amazing offensive mind, no question.

1. Hold your "Wild Horses": Josh McDaniels' knowledge of the Patriots' defense was clearly the difference in this game. His plan to take away the aggressiveness of defenders by making them think and adjust to multiple offensive formations was brilliantly executed. The "Wild Horses" formation used by the Broncos put the Patriots' defense in the same audible they would call versus the Wildcat formation used by the Miami Dolphins. Whatever defense is called in the huddle is trumped by the audible that is called by the signal-callers of the defense once the Wild Horses formation is recognized. The problem with this adjustment occurred when Kyle Orton motioned back to the quarterback position from the receiver position and ran traditional plays. Once it recognizes that the offense is in a traditional set, the defense must go back to the original defense called. Recognizing and adjusting to those gadget offensive formations is one thing, but getting back to the original defense called is one of the most difficult checks a defensive signal-caller has to make. So difficult, in fact, that the Patriots burned three timeouts during the game to settle themselves down -- two in the first quarter and one in overtime. The result was that the Patriots played on their heels most of the game in vanilla zone coverages that the Broncos' offense had no problems recognizing and executing against.

It was like Gruden vs the Raiders...But not as epic. McDaniels had a huge advantage here, but he deserves a crapload of credit.

Found it on bronco talk, but I couldn't find it on here. What probably I liked most from him is how he huddled the offense and yelled. But the biggest thing I took from it, was at the very end when a 35 year old (at the time) Dawkins is saying "Yes sir, yes sir" to a 33 year old McD. That's a lot of respect that everybody was worried about coming into this year. Well the "analysts and experts" were...

big deal. Shanny could sound just as cool if he was miked. In fact, if he was still here, he would have sounded way cooler. Signed, Rastaman.

Absolutely loved the pep talk where he gathered guys together and got them refocused, and the sit down with Orton..."no more my bads, make the F'in play". I wish Shanny would have done that from time to time instead of the damn evil eye or whatever it was he gave dudes. McDaniels emotions are contagious and fun to watch.
