Default Your Feelings On Mcdaniels

to all the McD haters, can you honestly look at what this team has accomplished in 11 games, after THAT offseason and not say to yourself that we have a pretty dam good head coach in Mcd.



Look at all the rest of the rookie head coaches, Mcd as a head coach has blown me away. Most were calling out a 3-13 record during the offseason. We are presently in the playoff race and look like a team with a new attitude (hard nosed physical football).



Already we have three classic moments this season (Bmarsh TD vs DAL, the holy stokely, just win the Mother%&%& game) If anything we should all atleast give Mcd some respect for that.



And just think that scene of Mcd pumping his fist into the crowd after a big win over NE could of easily been replaced with a certain baby batting microphones away and moping on the sideline's after losing the game for his team.

I think he is learning a great deal of valuable lessons this year and still winning football games which will bode well for the future.

I was a hater at the beginning but I have seen the light and maybe more importantly, I have no problem admitting it. I absolutely love where this team is and where it is going.

I've always been a fan, but he's not perfect. I think he's gonna put together a good team in the next couple of years.

I was always a supporter - but even I'm surprised at how well the team has already done this year given the way it looked like things were shaping up.

I think the rookie HC in Indy is doing a pretty good job. I think people forget they have a 1st time HC there.

I thought the 1st 6 game winning streak was very impressive but someone took their foot off the gas after the bye. Maybe I would feel better if the Broncos were prepared for the Baltimore game. I am trying to give our HC the benifit of the doubt but I will call him on things I don't think are right.

It could be worse, we could have Haley or the dude at Tampa...

Peyton Manning is the head coach of the Colts.

When Jim Caldwell makes a mistake, Peyton Manning makes him run laps.

When he was first hired I was worried about the record for Belicheat coordinators becoming head coaches, but honestly looking at his enthusiasm and the product he has put on the field, I am pretty excited about the Broncos future. When he has the full compliment of players on offense and gets a few more defensive stalwarts, this team should be scary good.

I've been a McDaniels supporter from the time it was announced he was going to be our head coach.

His football acumen extends well beyond his years. Still he's a young man, and will have his faults there when it comes down to his ego getting in the way of sound judgment.
That said, I'm happy with what he's done so far. It's hard to criticize a guy who has had the success he's had.

We're in good hands.

Sure but they are undefeated and not losing games because they are unprepared or because of their new HC. They have been just as lucky as we have been but they haven't had a down game on one or both sides of the ball.

I think Nolan has had a bigger impact on our success than Coyer has had on the Colts. Take away the D play vs Dallas, NE and SD the 1st time, even Cinncy and we are fighting KFC and Oakland for a top 5 Draft pick next April.

I have been a fan and supporter of Coach McDaniels since day 1...... has been my adopt-a-Bronco since he was hired. I for one admit I do not know shiat when it comes to football like any professional football coach does, unlike a number of posters here claim to know.

Thatís a solid argument. If you take away the offensive play this year from Indy they are 0-11 along with every other team in the NFL.

He's a hard guy not to like, despite a few things that he makes me nervous on. But at the end of the day, he seems to have the respect and attention of the team. They seem to respond to him, as evidenced by the hot start and that last great game. But the bottom line is that I could see us winning a Superbowl in the next 5 years behind him.

this.

He has made some mistakes, but overall you have to like the overall tenor of his first year.

I think the hiring of Mike Nolan to complement McDaniels was a brilliant move and as a tandem I am pretty happy with them. Offense needs work though.

I changed my mind on this guys coaching ability 2 months ago. And I was a harsh critic before that. Only needs 2 more wins to (IMO) call this season a true success.

I have had a new perspective on coaching since I started coaching lacrosse (going on 7 years). As a coach, you see the game in a different way (all sports). One thing that always struck me about McDaniels and gave me hope (even when Cutler was traded) was his attention to detail and trust in his system. These two things can carry average teams to above average seasons. I still believe this team is at least 2 years away from being a super bowl caliber team but like they way they are going.

You're distorting the point he is making. The topic of this thread is how do you like McD, and he is stating that it isn't McD, but Nolan who has done wonders with our team. I have to agree.

All of you McD douchers who love him so much were screaming "YOU HAVE TO GIVE HIM TWO YEARS!!!" at the beginning of the season when everyone claimed the sky was falling. Give him two years to realize his plan. I still say you're right.

The real damage won't be realized until year two or three when we're a team without Bmarsh, Doom, and Champ all replaced with his overrated draft picks. Give him time--it takes time to really turn something into trash.

Didn't Mangina win some games early too?

Yea, because we didn't have very much roster turnover already.

Arguably over half our team was trash. But our few stars were and are good enough to keep. But I imagine they won't be around long.

Nolan did a great job with the talent we had and whoever he has to work with. That's the guy who is the secret to our success.

The D is where most of the new starters are playing. So the retarded McD is responsible for half of the starters on defense.

At this point, I am completely satisfied - I think he has done a great job. We are 2 wins away from improving on last season, which actually exceeds my expectations for just bringing in a new coach, let alone all the other drama that took place this offseason.

I don't really know how it actually works on an NFL team, but I love seeing McD just as pissed or happy as I am when we win or lose. All I can say as a fan is that I love it.

That said, 2 or 3 years from now if we haven't at least won a playoff game or the division good riddance - but I seriously doubt that will happen. He's done a great job so far.
