I've been maybe more critical of him all year than anyone else, but in spite of the score, I thought he called a great game and the offense just didn't execute. Quite frankly, this offense is outmatched without Gronk and with Deion Branch as the 3rd best receiver on the team and no amount of coaching can overcome that. McDaniels had several great play calls where the Ravens over-pursued and the offense either didn't execute or got a lot less yards than they could have. Obviously the offense has major holes that need to be addressed and I'm on the we need a real #1 receiver bandwagon as much as anybody, but McDaniels got progressively better during the year and I think having him next year with 2012 back in New England under his belt is something to look forward to. The running game is better than it's been in years, and the offense was elite this year in spite of the fact it's only real physical advantage over other teams (Gronknandez) wasn't healthy all year. I would love to see what he can do with a healthy Gronknandez and a #1 receiver opposite Lloyd next year.
