Default McDaniels, Brady once went three weeks without talking in New England

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...n-new-england/

Quote:
The Denver Post takes a close look at second-year coach Josh McDaniels, the former Patriots offensive coordinator who arrived with much fanfare in 2009, and who then took the locals on a roller-coaster ride that ultimately ended in failure.

And here's a nugget from Mike Klis that won't make Broncos fans feel much better about their Boy Wonder. During McDaniels' first year as de facto offensive coordinator with the Patriots, McDaniels and quarterback Tom Brady once went three weeks without talking to each other.

Head coach Bill Belichick did a great job of keeping the spat under wraps, but the notion of player and coach not communicating for such a long stretch suggests that one of the two men has a personality flaw, or two. The fact that McDaniels has had public issues with multiple players in Denver suggests that McDaniels, not Brady, was the problem.

So what's wrong with this picture? Boomer Esiason of CBS tells Klis that McDaniels is trying to behave like Belichick before earning the ability to do so. "All these [coaches] are taking what Bill did in New England and trying to bring that with them wherever they go," Esiason said. "The one thing they're missing, though, is the credibility Bill Belichick has. The Super Bowl rings lead the players to believe he's leading them to victory."

Initially, it looked like McDaniels would be able to make the transition easily, as he led the team to six victories to start the season. But a 2-8 mark down the stretch has prompted folks to look more critically at McDaniels -- and it has many wondering whether the head coach will be inching toward the hot seat come 2010

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.
You really are a wank son.

Anybody surprised? This writing was on the wall about two weeks after he got to Denver. We gave full control to a powermad 33-yr old.

I'm guessing that McDaniels was simply advocating that Cassel start over Brady and Brady threw a little temper tantrum that's all. No harm no foul.

Not surprising, but really, there's not enough information to make any sort of hard conclusion.

Could be any number of things from either party that caused the spat.

And since then Tom Brady has publicly said many times that McDaniels was instrumental in making him the QB he is today and is one of the single best football people he's worked with.

Damn, what a sour relationship there huh?

McDaniels was probably heard by Brady saying the "trade" word and found out three weeks later McDaniels was in the process of trading his car in for a new one and NOT the "franchise" QB.

I think you can definitely draw some conclusions from this incident and some of the other one's he's had in Denver thus far. Look no farther than the Cutler situation, the draft situation, the Marshall situation, the suspensions the final week of the season, to the Nolan incident. Bottom line, McDaniels is a control freak and when you don't act just as he wants, he retaliates with truly pathetic immature actions. You would think this guy has the clout of a Parcells or Belicheck by the way he moves and reacts.

I would say his approach to coaching seems to resemble that of Ohio High School Coach. Someone that not used to feedback from his players.

Come on?
Not enough information?
Marshall for one, everybody knows about his off the field issues, but he has never been a problem on the team until McDaniels got here.
Scheffler: never been a problem
Hillis: never been a problem
Cutler: never been a problem

And now this article about McDaniels having some personal issues with Brady, and you find it not to be telling enough of what issues McDaniels may have when dealing with people?

ive got a good idea. be sure to whine at us about it. what do we know, we are just stupid fans who like to enjoy following the team and the game of football. shame on us for being so dense that we cant spit the same load of **** out constantly about why mcdaniels is the worst coach of all time.
