|BLOOMINGTON Authentic Nathan Shepherd Jersey , Minn. (AP) Josh McDaniels didnít know what he didnít know.
In 2009, he was the baby-faced 32-year-old prodigy plucked out of Bill Belichickís roost and Tom Bradyís shadow to serve as Mike Shanahanís replacement in Denver, holding down two jobs heíd never had: head coach and de facto general manager.
Heíd trade away his starting quarterback, draft Tim Tebow and win his first six games, including one against his mentor. But he was fired halfway through his four-year contract, losing 17 of his next 22 games and presiding over his very own videotape scandal.

The Broncos blamed themselves for giving McDaniels too much power with so little experience. Denver then embarked on a renaissance under general manager John Elway and Peyton Manning.
McDaniels spent a year with the Rams before returning for a highly successful second stint with Brady and Belichick, preparing him for his second NFL head coaching gig with the Indianapolis Colts , which will become official after the Super Bowl.
Now 41 http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/troy-apke-jersey , McDaniels still doesnít look his age, but he says he is a much wiser than the brash coach who wore the gray hoodie in Denver eight years ago.
McDaniels said he was a much better trainee and tutor in his return to New England, much more appreciative of the breadth of Belichickís artistry and the depth of Bradyís genius .
ĒItís a unique perspective,Ē seeing things a second time after getting a firsthand look behind the coaching curtain, McDaniels said Wednesday, as he helped Brady and Belichick prepare for their eighth Super Bowl.
ĒBill does a tremendous job of understanding the pulse of his team. He relates to everyone very well and Iíve been able to see that and look at that through a different lens. When we need a push, he pushes us. When we need love, he loves us. When we need a pat on the back Cheap Frank Ragnow Jersey , he does that. When we need to run hills, we run hills,Ē McDaniels said.
ĒHe just has a tremendous ability to understand when to do what as a head coach. And he serves us in so many ways to make us better coaches, to make the players better players. Heís there to help us, he doesnít take it away from us. Believe me, I make tons of mistakes in my role and heís there to help.Ē
McDaniels didnít think it was possible, but he now holds Belichick in even higher regard than he did during his first stint from 2006-08, because he now realizes all the juggling head coaches have to do.
ĒBefore you leave and you do that Lions Sylvester Williams Jersey , itís hard to say that you know what heís going through because you really donít,Ē McDaniels said. ĒIím very happy for the experiences that Iíve gone through. A lot of the failings in my career have been some of the best teachers that Iíve had. Iíve really learned a lot from them, I think Iím a better person, a better coach, a better communicator, a lot of things because of the things that I havenít done well.Ē
One thing heís done exceptionally well is working with Brady, whoís going for his sixth Super Bowl ring Sunday when the Patriots play the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles .
McDaniels has long held that working with Brady made him a better coach, because he always had to be prepared to answer the quarterbackís incessant questions Texans Martinas Rankin Jersey , to justify the smallest of his decisions, to explain what everyoneís role was on every single play.
ĒWe havenít treated each other any differently. He treats me with the respect of a coach and I treat him like I need to make him a better player,Ē McDaniels said. ĒAnd I think thatís the only way to do it. I know his experience and his understanding is above all others as a player. But I donít really focus a whole lot on that. I focus on the next team, the next week, the next practice, our scheme, what weíre trying to do and heís very respectful of that. And we listen and learn from each other.
ĒWe have a tremendous relationship and itís been an honor of my lifetime in coaching to have an opportunity to work with a guy like that as long as I have.Ē
