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

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

    J.McDaniels.jpgThe 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.

    Read the Denver Post's version of the non-story which happened in 2005.

    "So what happened in McDaniels' first season of coaching Brady, the league's best quarterback? The two went three weeks without speaking to each other. 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."

      The reason he went south after a 6-0 start was his defensive coordinator refused to make adjustments and played the same scheme for the rest of the year even though the opponents seemed to have figured out his defense, hence the firing of the defensive coordinator at the end of the year. Had little to do with McDaniels and more to do with that than anything as well as the fact the Broncos had no running backs to take the pressure of the passing game
