  1. I know that many are down on McDaniels, but two things make me have faith in him:
    1. As DEN HC, he recognized during training camp that Jay Cutler was a not going to be good and ran him out of town. History has proven him to be right.
    2. Belichick brought him back as OC. He did not bring back others who had become HCs (Weiss, Crennel). He would not have done so if he did not believe in him.
