The thought first hit me while watching a Broncos preseason game the other day. In fact, I think it was right after a two-play span that included Daniel Graham throwing a lead block for Lamont Jordan followed by an incomplete pass to Chad Jackson. It was really hammered home with today’s blockbuster Russ Hochstein trade.
Josh McDaniels is running the Broncos the way an 11-year-old runs his first fantasy team (Holy fuck, that’s also the title of this blog.)
Do you remember when you started your first fantasy team? I do. It was basically the Boston Red Sox + Montreal’s Vladimir Guerrero, and you’d be hard pressed to find a fuckin Yankee on that roster.
Anyway, that’s what McDaniels seems to be doing in his first year as coach of the Broncos. I just counted 7 former Patriots on the roster. You can say that 7/52 isn’t that bad of a ratio, but it sure as hell seems as if every former Pat’s first stop is Denver, CO.
I never thought so highly of Josh McD when he was here, and picking the top off of the Patriots scrap heap doesn’t seem like the best way to get back to glory days of Elway.
At least he was smart enough to get rid of that overrated asshole Jay Cutler.
