    I dont know why any team would want to give him another shot at head coach considering what happened with Denver
    He only spent two years in Denver. Josh did terrible, but let's be honest Cutler was not going to be a winner and he proved that a million times over in his career.

    Just for posterity.

    -Bill Belichick had exactly one winning record on the Browns in 5 years. When he left he had the worst win percentage in franchise history outside of an interim coach and a very short term coach who lasted two years.

    -Tom Landry didn't have a winning record his first SIX years on the Cowboys before going on a 20 year run. He had a .322.5 win percentage in that time.

    -Chuck Noll didn't have a wining season his first three years.

    2 years isn't enough to judge a head coach. If it was the greatest coach in the history of the league and the two greatest coaches of the 70's would have been fired

    Also, "WTF ARE THEY DOING!?"

    But I just learned that Wilson is not well liked by Seattle fans.

    Tom Landry? Chuck Noll? Man we ain't talking about single bar face-mask days of football. Post the modern free agency is a different game altogether. Your were right in saying McDaniels was terrible in Denver. He also wasn't retained in Saint Louis which people never seem to bring up after they got rid of Spagnulo, terrible there too. The current day NFL NO TEAM is going to wait 6 years for a game above a .500 record. It's a huge reach to bring up NFL football from 50 years ago and tailor it to this weasel McDaniels. By that reasoning Chip Kelly ought to be brought back to helm a team, Mike Singletary and a half other bums WORSE than McDaniels ought to get their mulligan in the NFL.

    As using Belichick, c'mon now. He was successful BEFORE the Browns stint and everybody knows there were circumstances that made that situation what it became and none of was on Bill Belichick.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.

    You can't really blame the Colts here , I mean all indications on Monday was McDaniels was joining the team and had even took part in getting assistant coaches ready. So it seemed like he was gonna come coach the team.

    Agreed. The Colts all but had his name on the dotted line before he changed his mind and basically stiffed them.

    Hearing some rumors that may have affected the McDaniels decision. So he probably got a raise. The amount thrown around was that he was making about $2 million as the offensive coordinator. The amount tossed about as the Colts HC position was $7 million. Another was stability for his kids. I believe they said he has 3 kids all in school. By staying with New England they could stay in the same environment. It was also talked the he would learn handling roster management including payroll/cap management. Stuff that could help him in overall management skills.

    I'm not really excited for the draft because many of Belichick's picks haven't been so great. I guess they would focus on defense. The offense is pretty solid if, and it's a bit of a big if, the receivers all come back: Gronk, Eldeman, Cooks and Mitchell.

    I am excited by free agency. The Pats may lose some quality players because teams like opening the wallet for Super Bowl participants. The Patriots are pretty good though at signing guys that are under the radar who then do well in the Patriot system creating a lot of depth for the team. Still, wouldn't mind scoring a playmaker. Highly ranked defenses got annihilated in the play-offs this year but that one or two turnovers to give your team an extra offensive opportunity can make all the difference.

    It reminds me when dick head Emmanuel Sanders told Kansas City he was gonna sign with them. That he'd be signing Saturday. He suddenly snuck outta town on that day and wouldn't tell the team that he was gonna sign with Denver instead. Reid was pissed because Sanders could have told them he didn't want to sign and they could make other visits. But its there Reid decided , ya know what...we can draft and build a young WR we need. So thanks to Sanders being a cowardly bitch , the Chiefs got Tyreek Hill 2 seasons later. They had to find the right cog for the system but they did.

    He's clearly being groomed by Belichick and Kraft to take over the team down the line. In 3-4 seasons , McDaniels will be handed the Patriots job. They decided that Brady needed McDaniels a lot. I do think they draft a QB in the 2nd round and have them groomed behind Tom. With the idea this one will be starting eventually.

    Another thing I am hearing is that Kraft decided to push hard to keep McDaniels once he had a method of screwing over the Colts - he's still bitter about Ballghazi/Inventgate. All he needs now is to be a deciding vote on something of extreme importance to Fraudger.

    This has to be corrected , McDaniels was leaving right at the end of the season , he pretty much was telegraphed at returning to New England once O'Brien did interviews with Texans. They had McDaniels join them as a basic assistant to watch during the playoffs that year. No way was he gonna stick around St.Louis.

    Belichick had a successful run as a defensive coordinator and worked years under Parcells as we know. Of course his Cleveland run isn't entirely on him really. So yeah that much is true.

    I hope New England works for McDaniels (not really, Bills fan here), because he's probably burned enough bridges in the League that he would not be able to find a home anywhere else.

    Man, the next time the Patriots are in Indy, I hope "Fuck McDaniels" echoes on national television all game.

    Patriots are targeting TEs, DTs, and a QB in the 1st 4 rounds.

    Sounds like defense, a Gronk replacement, and a Brady replacement are on their minds.

    That probably means Bennett, Branch, and Alan are done in NE.

    And Dion Lewis is going to FA.

    Sounds like rebuild mode ...
