This guy is different.....
I agree 100%. By far my favorite coach here since Shula.
While there are still Tua skeptics here and that pro and con battle continues, I'm curious if we all agree on McDaniel at least.
McDaniel's fantastic. He's an innovator too. Changed up the schemes from last year to adapt. We'll see if he can stay ahead of defenses for the rest of the year.
What's going to ruffle some feathers is that all this success will raise Grier's stature too and even Ross. Grier is starting to look smart for not just the Tua pick but also the Waddle pick (though hard to go wrong there) and the Hill trade, and also hiring McDaniel. All his other mistakes are being overshadowed by these successes. And if Fangio pans out (and I think he will, guy has too much history).. man.
You have to give Grier the credit for hiring McDaniel when most don’t see it
Ross stinks but other than the Brady debacle at least he is pretty hands off
Grier is mega fortunate to still be here but boy am I glad Ross kept him over Flores. A lot of the most vocally anti Grier people **** him for things that turned out he was right about.
I can't remember who it was, but one of our posters dismissed him for not projecting enough of a manly image to be a leader of men. But he's a really bright coach and I hope he continues to see a different game from his peers. Probably my favorite thing about him is that he saw Tua as an opportunity when a lot of folks thought he was a reclamation project at best. Dude was genuinely excited to deploy an offense that took advantage of his strengths whereas Flo already wrote him off as a wasted pick.
Let's hope Jackson and Eichenberg are added to the list of draft hits also.
This would be a hell of a couple of drafts.
That was a hilarious post. It was Serpico Jones:
I'll admit it took a while for McDaniel to grow on me but right now he's making Grier look like a genius for hiring him. It's the classic don't judge a book by it's cover. What he has done to elevate Tua's game is unreal.
Short motion explained and how others are copying him:
I admit I thought it was a mistake when Miami fired Flores, I thought he was a decent coach and one of the few bright spots from those 2 years. That said, I immediately liked the hire of McDaniel and I hope Miami gives him the type of patience Steelers give their coaches. I'd like to see him coaching here for a decade plus!
I honestly think he will be unless he leaves himself. The NFL is very, very offence orientated and he just gets it. We probably had a top 3 offence last year when Tua played and this year we might have the best offence in the league. He's already shown he can make adjustments between seasons and both games this season he has shown something different in each game. Game 1 I honestly think that was him proving a point to the rest of the NFL that we can throw over the middle against the team everyone thought had figured out his offence and game 2 he showed that if you try and play 3 deep he will run the ball and dink and dunk you to death.
Even his approach to man management seems to be different and it's obvious the players love him. Compare how he handles players making mistakes to Belichick who benched his rookie after that fumble. The rookie is the only receiver the Pats have that is actually capable of making people miss and running past people, I was delighted when he took him out of the game.
I've liked McDaniel since day one. Was surprised they fired Flores, but loved the hire of McDaniel.
Check out this older video:
Yup! Seems like a keeper, finally a Jimmy replacement.
Jimmy replacement? Jimmy Johnson?
I get it. Kinda love it. If we hadn’t been so Fn bad for so many years - it feels like we should have.
But the man is true to himself. It’s the thing I think we all really like about him.
Screw JJ. We finally have a Shula replacement.
I just see Jimmy as the last really good coach we had since Shula and hopefully McDaniel becomes our next Shula. I’m rooting for him and liked him from the start.
