Morning Walk-Through: McDaniels, McDaniels!

One destination is particularly popular this morning in our usual trip around the NFL. Check it out.
Arm-flapping, foot-stomping and hand-wringing over Josh McDaniels continues out in Denver. A sampling of stories...Mike Shanahan went from Oakland to Denver DURING THE SAME SEASON AND COACHED AGAINST THE RAIDERS. No crying. ... Mike Klis has gone from saying McDaniels would provide intimate insider knowledge of the Broncos on Sunday to saying McDaniels sucks completely and will ruin everything for the Patriots. No mention yet from Mike that this isn't unprecedented. ... Clown shoes. Woody Paige weighs in. Deep thoughts here. Guy should wear a sign, "Parody. Not to be taken seriously."
Meanwhile, the Broncos seem to have cheated on the game-winning touchdown pass against Pittsburgh. (Aside: In my experience, the playoffs bring out levels of homerism in the media that - during the regular season - never appear to exist. And the media-to-media interaction which is friendly and collegial during the season, actually gets an edge in the postseason when two teams are preparing to play each other. Nobody's throwing hands, but there is a fair amount of eye-rolling at the other side. Just an observation...) RAC is the man in KC. And Sam Mellinger of the KC Star writes a very good piece about what Scott Pioli needs to do to change if this thing is going to work long term.
