I am still looking for an original source, but based on two other board reports, Gary Miller said this morning that McDaniels scolded the team after the Jets loss and put them through a tough week of practice.

The players didn't take it well because they felt they played their hearts out against the Jets and basically gave McDaniels the finger with yesterday's performance.

I hope it's not true, but if it is, it makes you think a complete housecleaning is in order.

I think they gave him more than the finger. Laughing and giggling on the sidelines after that performance pretty much tells you that they're okay with what happened yesterday. Probably laughing about what will happen this week if they got punished after the Jets performance!

I heard it and can confirm that is exactly what he said. He said it was personnel pretty deep, not just the law mower.

I don't believe that a single professional football player would pull **** like that. Not even B-Marsh or frown cannon would throw a game to get back at a coach for "a tough week of practice." And against the Raiders? Not buying it for a second.

Guys, it wasn't a conspiracy by the players. They were just beaten up, plain and simple, by a superior team with superior talent, focus and coaching.

Balls. He gave them a run after the Ravens game and look at the reaction against the Jets.

If this were true then maybe his people skills need work
but I applaud Josh for saying there are no moral vicories in the NFL and good enough is not good enough. I was at the game and I can tell you Bailey was not amused at all with the team performance and stood off by himself when not on the field. He was clearly disgusted arms folded not a smile on his face the whole 2nd half and would not partake in the defensive gatheringing that occur while the offense is on the field. He's the gold standard by which we should judges these professional athletes so screw the players that thought they could give up and teach Josh a lesson

Is it that simple? I'll give you "focus" but I'm not sure Oakland has superior talent and coaching to anything close to what's needed to explain 59-14 at home. I really think they quit yesterday.

Zach Miller did say Denver played hard through most of the game.

Miller and several teammates said they thought the Broncos played hard for most of the game.

"I felt like they were doing whatever they could, but when you get that kind of lead and our offense just keeps staying out there, it's tough when your defense is out there that long," Miller said.

"After we kept going up by more touchdowns, we kept saying, 'We can't let down,' because we knew their passing offense (enables them) to get back in the game quickly. We just wanted to make sure, as an offense, we stayed on the field and kept the ball away from them."

From a Fan's perspective, yes-from a Player's perspective, maybe not-these guys know that if they lose their Job here, they'll probably end up somewhere else-they weren't raised hating a Divisional opponent, not like a long term Fan is-I think it's more of keeping your Job than wasting an opponent-

Lots of disturbing stuff in this thread. If the players layed down on purpose, shame on them, but it was McDaniels who chose the guys he wanted to go to war with. To have them quit on him would obviously be a giant stab in the back, but it's still on him.

But more disturbing is reading that players were laughing on the sidelines? I obviously didn't stick around to watch that far into the game, but that pretty disgusting to hear. Who were these players?

Uggh, reminds me of Ian Gold.

My brain refuses to believe that Brian Dawkins would allow something like the alleged mutiny to happen in his dressing room.

From where I sat, (and I'm certain it looks different on TV), it just looked like poor Coaching-there were so many missed Tackles, bad technique (going for the Ankles instead of squaring up and driving through the Runner), it wasn't funny. Orton looked "off", unlike any other Game this Year-the Oline couldn't keep the Defenders from getting into the backfield, everything just didn't gel-Royal was giving it his all though-Vickerson was definitely playing hurt-he's one big dude-

I don't think any nfl player simply mails it in. Even in college, that's a good way to get seriously injured. However, if McDaniels really did do such a sophmoric stunt as to shame and physically punish that team after the Jests game .... he may have lost them and be considered a dangerous idiot by the players. I admit I really thought the faide would win yesterday with either Campbell or the polish guy, but .... not like that. If McDaniels faulted the effort against the Jests, I can see the players treating him and his staff like jokes.

While they may not have laid down purposely against the Raiders, they may not have had a whole lot of "care" once they were falling behind. When the system is built on "The beatings will continue until morale improves," it's hard to get yourself pumped up to do great.

And Josh while he can get pretty worked up when are are winning, certainly seems quiet and lost when we are losing. I doubt he was a huge inspiration for the team to catch up.

Specific players aren't mentioned in the supposed rumor, and the source of this story has yet to be named. I am a little skeptical of this "story".

I doubt they got together and planned on putting together that performance. The fact is that they did quit on McDaniels though, It just wasn't some planned conspiracy. This isn't new though. They quit on him for the entire second half of last season. Just look at how we played against good teams early compared to bad teams late. All of this character crap has really worked for him.
