I was on the McD bandwagon before they signed him... back when it was down to Spagnolo, Raheem Mooris and J McD.

I had my fingers crossed that we would pick McD and was excited when we finally did.

I'm cautiously optimistic. Things are looking a lot better to me this year than they did last. Football needs to start already.

No and no. I liked him when we hired him and hated him soon after he started making moves.

I find this to be a very reassuring move in the right direction. I'm not ready to have complete faith in this front office yet. But, I can fully acknowledge when they make a decision that I feel is beneficial to the long term success of the team. Good job to everyone involved in making this happen.

This.

I just want to win. I'm optimistic about this year, but I haven't forgotten about the fact that we lost 8 of 10 games to close the season, including losses to Oakland and KC - both winnable games which would have put us into the playoffs.

I don't care whether I'm seen as "on" the "Josh Bandwagon" or "off" of it. I just want to win. Right now I'd say that I'm optimistic about our chances of going to the playoffs this year and am very excited to see what Josh's second year brings.

+1. They should have football during the summer time. That would set the Summer over the top. I'm pretty sure the players won't mind the extra heat.

Same. I very much like our chances this year. I think we can finally usurp the division from the Chargers.

Oh, I don't know, ordered from most pro-McD to most anti-McD, or some-such? I've liked McD from the beginning. He won me over with his articulateness and his priorities, very early on.

I wrote them as I thought of them, I didn't think anyone would have a hard time understanding the very short statements. Bad spelling not withstanding.

I was thinking of the reasons I dislike Josh running the team and what would change my mind about him and came up with the following:

The moves that made me not like him being in charge:

- Cutler. I'm not even going to explain myself here.

- Marshall. Although this one is mostly that it followed Cutler. I can understand the move, and think there are other teams that would do the same, but I just can't accept losing two young pro bowlers in such a short period.

- Sheffler. This isn't that big of a deal but again we lost some good talent. I'm not saying he is a great pro bowler but he is a guy that creates matchup problems and helps stretch the field.

- Nolan. This was a great hire but we have now continued the revolving door at d coordinator. If it was that McDaniels didn't like how Nolan ran the defense then he is a dumbass for not doing his research on a coach that has been around forever. If it was just that Nolan wanted out to take the same job elsewhere, maybe McDaniels should have put on some knee pads or something. He needed to find a way to make Nolan stay. The "mutual" line just says that McDaniels hand picked coach didn't even want to work with him and that McDaniels didn't want his hand picked coach that was on the one side of the ball that improved(yes, I get that they were bad at the end. This doesn't change what I said).

- Orton. I do not understand leaving this team stuck with him as the best option. You get rid of Cutler for this? What the...?? Tebow can easily change my mind on this as he seems to be the guy McDaniels wants to really replace Cutler with. Even still, way to put the team back 4-5 years.

- Alphonso pick. I have nothing against Smith and I hope he turns out to be great. I will never think trading a first for a second is a good idea. The prospects at our first this year were guys that show a lot more potential than Smith. I just don't get why anyone would think that trade would ever be worth it. You can't see into the future to even begin to know what you are missing out on. It is a first round pick. Shanahan failed because he picked bad early(something that had turned around at the end but was to late) and couldn't get a good d coordinator.

- The first years direction and results. I agree with Bowlen. Why would we not pick more defense in the draft when we had the teams worst ever defense? How can you spend so many resources on an already good offense and get worse on that side? This is another reason Nolan leaving makes me mad. He did a lot with very little. I wish he would have stayed around long enough to get a decent front 7 to work with. I also just don't get the Madden generation aproach to the draft. He trades all over when he likely could get many of the players by sitting where he is. To me, it seems like he is trying to do far too much and he needs to settle down on draft day.


Now here is a list of what he can do to make me like him being in charge:

- Win. Making the playoffs would be a start.

- Unleash the greatness of Tebow. I have hopes for Tebow and if he shows that he is a good Cutler replacement, I will be patient if we aren't winning right away. I wouldn't expect to win as much if we had a really young QB starting but you can still tell if they show promise or not.

- Continue doing what you do in free agency. I can't say I have many complaints when it comes to FA signings. This alone hasn't changed my opinion of McDaniels but it has helped. Also, the Elvis signing was a great move.


That is all. I may have to edit these lists some as I think of stuff.

Each isn't mutually exclusive as I expected them to be, so I went with the first true one. I should have read the entire post before voting, it's really my fault. But you didn't help.
