Players stick up for McDaniels after blowout to Raiders

The Broncos players have spent the past few days sticking up for their coach Josh McDaniels after the team was crushed by their rivals the Raiders last week at home.

“I’m not sugarcoating this.I’m going to be as honest as I can be and tell it to you straight. It’s not Josh,” Broncos linebacker Mario Haggan told the Denver Post. “I’ve never been more prepared as a player from a head coach. And I’ve been through five or six already. “We knew when the screen play was coming. We just didn’t stop it. We knew when it was run-toss and they were going to try to hit the edge. We just didn’t stop it. It’s not him. People may not understand that, but I’m telling you that’s the way it is.” Players insist that McDaniels still has a strong grip on his team. “That’s ridiculous,” defensive ttackle Justin Bannan said. “Josh hasn’t lost this team. Nobody quit. When it’s 21-0 and there’s only five minutes gone on the clock? You’re like, ‘Oh, boy.’ It’s not even an uphill battle at that point. It’s a fight for survival.” McDaniels isn’t deaf to the criticism he’s received. “You understand they want you to win, and when you don’t win, they’re going to take out their frustrations,” McDaniels said.
