Troubling statements continue to come out of the Broncos organization about Josh McDaniels.
When owner Pat Bowlen isn’t vacillating about McD’s future, co-workers of the beleaguered head coach talk out of turn about him through the media. Someone within the organization spoke to Michael Silver of Yahoo! about the root of McDaniels’ problems.
“If he treated people right, everybody’d just keep their mouths shut. But when you treat people like a piece of [expletive], this is what happens,” the source said.
McDaniels said he wasn’t going to chase ghosts when asked if he’d find out who leaked information to FOX’s Jay Glazer about his coach’s meeting. But McDaniels knows that the sniping he’s taking from within his increasingly toxic building is doing damage.
Bowlen mentioned in his remarks to Fanhouse.com that McDaniels has the right to clean house on his staff after the season. First, the coach has to make it through the next five weeks with minimal drama.
If the ghosts continue to out-number the wins, it will be harder for Bowlen to keep McDaniels around.
