    It's a great opportunity to practice situational football, good for him.

    Broncos' McDaniels not fair weather guy - The Denver Post
    I thought it was interesting that McDaniels thought that of all things, it was not passing, catching, running, or anything else, but it was the kicking game that he feels is affected first.

    Hey Pats fans,

    Im not here to talk smack, I dont normally go to other teams message boards but since we got one of your coaches as our HC now I figured Id drop by and see what this week's enemy is up to.

    Smack talking is reserved for division rivals so I'll keep it clean here :)

    Anyway, I read this article today and was floored. You guys dont understand, Shanahan ran club med. If it even looked like it was going to rain, indoors the team went. Im loving the way McDaniels is handling things. Great start to what was supposed to be a crappy year for Denver.

    Is this how Belichik does it? I am starting to see why New England has been successful under him.

    From everything I've read and heard Belichick doesn't take either a drill sargeant or club med approach, but instead takes every week differently depending on the team's overall health, attitude, preparation, etc. I never got the feeling that it was an either/or situation with him in terms of how he ran practices.

    What about with his assistants though? Seems like that would fall on them to do instead of him...

    In short - yes. This is classic BB, especially this early in the season when the lads haven't been exposed to the elements as much.

    I was just speaking in reference to how physically demanding Pats' practices are in a given week - in response to the Broncos practicing in the sleet and snow. In terms of individual coaches, or Belichick letting players know what they failed to do on a play when the team watches the game film - that's another story.

    Bah, it wasn't that bad here in denver today. Slight drizzle. My daughter wore her flip flops to 1st grade (we're from RI).

    And its great to see so many bronco fans on the McDaniel bandwagon. The guy was public enemy #1 around here back in august-september, when Bronco fans, (which include the jackasses on the local sports radio) were calling for a 2-14 season.

    Newsflash: Belichick is not Tom Cable. Brady is not Tony Romo. We'll see how Kyle Orton and co. look this week when the **** hits the fan.

    I guess I'm having trouble following what you are asking. That it would be up to the assistants to determine whether players practice in the sleet and snow or indoors? That it would be up to the assistants to practice in full gear or in shorts? That it would be up to the assistants to run a 30-minute walk through or a two-hour full-contact drill?

    Sorry, but I'm not exactly sure what you're asking when you say 'that would fall on them to do instead of him'.

    Exactly... if Sunday is anything like today here in Denver, the Pats should bring their sunscreen. It would be like Michael Phelps in a kiddie pool.

    Temps were hovering just around freezing. I hope it's cold this weekend, because we know how the Pats play in winter. Just wish I could lift some tickets off of a Broncos fan.

    Yes on all of those minus the weather.
    Seemed to me like he let the assistants determine all that stuff instead of himself, let them drill them hard as punishment(drill sergeant analogy) or let them off easy as a reward(Club Med analogy).

    Bill usually chooses depending on how he thinks the players are doing, mentally and physically. It's not a hard and fast rule. But as an earlier poster said, if he thinks that the players could do with some rain/snow practice then they'll stay outside for the session.

    No, Belichick would bring them indoors but he would make it snow inside. :p
