McDaniels hopeful Clady will be ready for the season

Josh McDaniels appeared on NFL Network Wednesday night and refreshingly didn’t bother to deny the widespread reports about tackle Ryan Clady’s torn patellar tendon.

“It sounds like you guys are pretty much on top of the story,” McDaniels said.  “It’s an unfortunate situation with Ryan, but we’re hopeful he’ll be ready for the season.”

After a wide-ranging interview in which McDaniels talked a lot about Tim Tebow, the Broncos coach was asked if he could guess when Clady will return to the field.

“The injury report will be out in September,” McDaniels said before cracking up.

    TRANSLATION: I hope we find a way to trade away another one of our best players ;)

    Just make sure he’s ready by the time Tebow is ready to play in 2013…

    Guyana had Jim Jones….The Denver Broncos have Josh McDaniels….

    Sounds like the ball juice is doing the trick!!!
    Amen

    I hear Tim Tebow has the physical tools and intellect to play LT.

    “I was jacked leaving that room,” Tebow said. “I didn’t even want to visit another room. It was not enough time. We were excited, we were enthusiastic. There was passion. It was just intense, and it was ball, and it was juice. The juice level in that room was high, and it was awesome.”
    Bob, Tim’s tool has been played.

    Cutler and the thug receiver?
    Set your standards a little higher, man.

    Tim Tebow does not need an offensive line, he can block for himself!

    Jesus is Tebow’s QB coach. What more does he need?

    “‘The injury report will be out in September,’ McDaniels said before cracking up.”
    If this rock-headed imbecile could crack up about anything on the day he hears his best player – and make no mistake, Clady’s the best player on the roster – ripped-up a knee, well, he’s worthy of the name McDips**t. Stone cold moron.
    Speaking of which, I’ve been out to the Denver Post’s site and seen the usual array of jackasses swaying way off-topic to either bash or stroke each other. It’s amazing – Broncos fans used to be a savvy group. Those days are gone.
    Nothing to crack-up about today, McStupid. Glad you could find time to talk about Tebow, though.

    Marshall might be a thug, but he’s a 100 catch thug.
    With Marshall gone, Clady is easily Denver’s best player. I bet Orton doesn’t think it’s as funny as McDaniels does.

    RAIDERS!

    How can people not like McDaniels? In a world full of ‘fall in line and do as you are told’ clones, he has the balls to stand up and run the Broncos like he thinks it should be done. Right or wrong, this guy is doing it his way and I commend that.

    sheeeeit…McDilwad going to a power running scheme..his backs are so powerful and “Rocket arm” Orton is so quick they won’t even need an offensive line…just give’em the ball and they’ll be in the end zone

    You totally answered your own question.

    You can’t possibly be serious how hypocritical are you?
    “In a world full of ‘fall in line and do as you are told’ clones, he has the balls to stand up and run the Broncos like he thinks it should be done.
    That is precisely what he has done to the Broncos, he is the quintessential do as you’re told and fall in line colossal short prick. Yes he may be running the Broncos as he thinks the organization should be run, but he has run off Pro Bowl talent because his inexperience in personnel management & his huge ego got in the way of his supposed mantra, “team first”. If he actually acted as he preaches he wouldn’t have benched Marshall & Scheffler when a playoff was on the line.
    He missed on numerous draft choices last year, his play calling is less than stellar and he’s arrogant with no track record to support his arrogance like his mentor Bellicheck, who has actually accomplished something to make his arrogance more tolerable.
    He may have balls but then so did that Chinese guy in Tiannamen Square that stopped the tanks, only to be spirited away by Chinese authorities and never heard from again. At this point there are many Broncos fans that might wish McDaniels the same fate.

    Real Headline: “McDaniels hopeful Clady will be ready to trade for the season.”
    What happens when McDouchbag trades away the last quality piece of the puzzle Shanahan built?
    “And with the first pick of the 2012 draft, the Denver Broncos select…”

    “Right or wrong, this guy is doing it his way and I commend that”
    So you rather have a guy be wrong, but do it his way because he worked under Belichick so he has a ‘way’ now?
    Didnt he say how he didnt even talk to Brady for like 3 weeks or something? Tells you who the REAL offensive coach on that team was.

    Duude, I’m sorry but McDaniels would be out of his mind trading away his pro bowl left tackle. Especially one who’s only a few years into the league. That is a premium position in the NFL. If you can draft someone who plays at HIS level, you keep him on your team for the next decade to anchor your offensive line. That said, it’s looking like there were four elite players on the roster when McDaniels showed up, in Cutler, Marshall, Dumervil, and Clady (I’d say Champ too, but he isn’t getting any younger). He’s already dealt half of them. I hope this guy knows what he’s doing.

    To all those jumping on the bash McDaniels bandwagon and suggesting he is going to deal Clady, get a life. All the players he has dealt away had attitude problems and in some cases (Marshall) other issues that lead to their being shipped out of town. Clady doesn’t have any of that and won’t be dealt any time soon.
    As for him cracking up after saying the injury report comes out in september, what do you want the guy to do. Nobody died here and he doesn’t have a definitive timetable for Clady’s return since he just had the sugery. He was trying to make light of a troubling situation not laughing at the fact that Clady got hurt.

    That’s hilarious, McDaniels.
    You just lost one of your two best players, after you drafted a bible thumper who throws like a 15-year-old, and traded away most of your best players for kids coming off of injuries.
    I’ll be laughing my head off when they announce your firing in a couple years.
