We'll be seeing former Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels this weekend when the Kansas City Chiefs face the St. Louis Rams. McDaniels will make his return to Arrowhead Stadium for the first time as the Rams offensive coordinator.
As Chiefs fans, we should take this opportunity to thanks McDaniels for a few of the personnel moves he made while he was coach of the Broncos, especially this one (via AP user Tarkus, via Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports):
As one highly knowledgeable member of the organization told me Monday, "If everything was totally equal, and this were a competition based only on performance at this camp, [Tim] Tebow would probably be the fourth-string guy. Kyle [Orton] is far and away the best, and Tebow's way behind [Brady] Quinn, too. And I'm telling you, Adam Weber is flat-out better right now."
First, McDaniels is the one who selected Tebow, which might be turning into a wasted first round pick in 2010, as well as the second, third and fourth round picks it cost to acquire him. Second, McDaniels has had success developing quarterbacks but he's not in Denver anymore so he won't be working with Tebow.
It almost makes you wonder who inflicted more damage on the Broncos -- Josh McDaniels or Derrick Thomas?
