Coordinated for a guy named Bill on a team that wore blue. 

Had some initial success, but ultimately failed as head coach for a team that wore orange.

Went back to work for Bill and the New England Patriots. 

Had a head coaching job lined up, then backed out at the last minute to return to the Patriots.

Patriots or bust for McDaniels.  I doubt any team in the league hires him after this.

 

Who am I kidding?  Some dumbass team would hire him.

w/r/t this being some sort of Robert Kraft power play against Jim Irsay, back to that David Roth piece:

 

It’s not quite sufficient to say that the NFL is an owners’ league. It absolutely is, in the sense that every decision the league makes is made to advance the financial interests and flatter the various vanities of the owners. But, on a more mundane level, the league’s current deemphasizing of the game of football in favor of oafish executive theater—the protean expansion of the league’s metastatic rulebook, the endless rounds of stern but vague disciplinary action that issue from the commissioner’s office—is more than the owners dictating the way that their sport is overseen and organized. It is the owners making the league more explicitly about them: not just what they want, but what they do.

Na. The Bengals seem happy with Marvin Lewis.

In 2018 we're all just performing for the oligarchs.

The only team smart enough not to hire a guy like that currently employs him.

Read an article that confirmed our suspicions that McDaniels was essentially promised the Patriots job once Belichick retires. So there you go.

Remember when Belichick was the Jets coach until he backed out at the last minute?

After watching the Two Bills 30 for 30 I'm seeing some weird parallels now. 

 

Belichick was supposed to go to the Vikings as an assistant coach but turned it down after accepting it to stay on with Parcells

The whole Jets debacle that hearing it from them honestly felt like Parcells trying to get back at Kraft for their falling out.  Belichick resigning a day or so later was just awkward.

 

This whole thing is just a jumble of WTF is going on.

I have not been overwhelmed by Ryan Pace with the Bears. I don't blame the John Fox hire on him because his bosses made that hire for him, but everything else has been just kinda meh. Still a little hard to see a Bears renaissance on the horizon. But one thing Pace did extremely well was not hire that little pissant McDaniels and set him up to screw the Bears the way he wound up screwing the Colts. Congratulations to the Bears on dodging a cannonball.

Until a team hands Kirk cousins the whole bank and then some.

Is he even worth that kind of money? I know that they went 5-0 with him as the starter, but that much money is going to cripple the Niners if they bungle this.

I think the Niners will be fine. I'll enjoy the Rams & Niners battling it out for the NFC West and watching the Seahags crumble.
