Competition Committee doesn’t recommend closing McDaniels loophole

josh-mcdaniels Getty Images

Much has been said about the various rule changes proposed by the Competition Committee for 2012.  Not much has been said about the the rules that won’t be changed.

The current rules permit a coach whose team’s season has finished to be released from the balance of his contract during the postseason, and then to join another team.  It’s something that players can’t do; once the postseason starts, the rosters lock until after the Super Bowl.

In January 2012, the Rams did it with former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, releasing his rights after the regular season ended, which allowed him to take a job with the Patriots for the playoff run.

Though the maneuver seems unfair at a visceral level, the Competition Committee has not recommended a change to the rules.

“[W]e didn’t think there was a rule change necessary with respect to that situation,” Competition Committee chairman Rich McKay said at a Monday press conference.

It’s a mistake, and when we put it out to a vote in January nearly 70 percent of you agreed.

    Eh…if a team doesn’t want a coach to coach against it in the playoffs…don’t fire said coach until after the playoffs.

  2. bluvayner says: Mar 27, 2012 10:43 AM

    70% agreed, only because the Patriots were involved.

  3. donterrelli says: Mar 27, 2012 10:44 AM

    Seems fair to me, but if coaches and staff can do it, I think players should be able to as well.

  4. billsfan1 says: Mar 27, 2012 10:46 AM

    well its not like after 4 years he was able to help them figure out the Giants defense… not sure it did any good

  5. benh999 says: Mar 27, 2012 10:50 AM

    Close what loophole? Closing what is being called a loophole would mean that if a coach is terminated during the league year, they should not be allowed to find employment elsewhere until next March.

  6. joetoronto says: Mar 27, 2012 10:50 AM

    How the hell did Rich McKay become the Competition Committee Chairman?

    The man is a moron.

  8. gmen1990 says: Mar 27, 2012 10:53 AM

    I thought the broncos released Josh, not the Rams, and then the patriots signed him a week before their playoff game against the Broncos?

  9. billsfan1 says: Mar 27, 2012 10:54 AM

    and for the record, the Pats get away with more sh*t than any team…. spygate was the epitome of unsportsmanship, on par if not surpassing bountygate..bountygate was sleazy but didnt help them win games….spygate clearly allowed them to win 3 super bowls…
    why else would all of the evidence be destroyed? because of the backlash from fans wanting the super bowl titles to be stripped… as far as i am concerned, the pats have won NO super bowls because they are unable to provide evidence they won without the use of videotape…and dont tell me that it couldnt have helped because the games were all close..

    so yes for all of you people from Boston who think you are better than everybody else, without cheating you are 0-7 in the super bowl….

    I have to agree with this. People were just voting against the Pats.

    if the players wanted the freedom to move teams after the playoffs started, they should have collectively bargained for it. they didn’t and its not in the CBA. Since coaches arent part of the players union, or any union, they are not subject to the rules of the CBA so its really a non issue, as much as you keep trying to make it an issue. As one commentator said here, don’t fire the guy or let him out of his contract if you don’t want him to join another team.

  12. jiggy3198 says: Mar 27, 2012 11:03 AM

    Keep on cheating new England. Find ways around the system. Funny how you never won anything after spygate

  13. jimbo75025 says: Mar 27, 2012 11:05 AM

    I know McDaniels was fired by Denver, but did the Rams can him also? I was under the impression he simply left the Rams as OC because the same position was open in NE.

  14. marima07 says: Mar 27, 2012 11:06 AM

    Coaches and assistants move around so much it would be hard to find one that hadn’t had some connection to a team making a playoff run.

    The Patriots had a previous relationship with McDaniels and it was clearly not a situation where they hired him only for whatever possible stale information he may have had on the tea he coached from a 18 months prior to them firing him.

    Does this situation happen often enough for a rule to be in place? I don’t think so.

    John Gruden had more of an advantage coaching his Bucs team to a Super Bowl win over what used to be his Raiders team from the year before.

    And @billsfan1′s comment: as far as i am concerned, the pats have won NO super bowls… No one really cares what your opinion is on this. Atleast our kicker at the time was able to make it go thru the uprights…Just sayin’

    Translation: Billsfan1 hates the Patriots, and because he hates the Patriots, they are guilty until they prove their innocence, because Billsfan1 isnt smart enough to come up with a way to prove they are guilty. It is like Ben Roethlisburger, he has to prove he didnt do what he was accused of, rather than the accuser prove he did something. It doesnt make any sense to have that point of view. I like to make jokes at the expense of Big Ben, every fan makes those jokes when a rival gives them the ammo to make the joke, but it doesnt mean it is true just because “I want it to be true”.

  19. kellyb9 says: Mar 27, 2012 11:15 AM

    I see a complete inequity here. Teams that don’t make the playoffs are allowed to cherry pick coordinators from teams that are still playing, yet the Patriots can’t pick up a “free agent” coach during the playoffs to ensure a clean handoff of responsibilities between seasons and everyone flips out. I’m confused here. People want to blame the Patriots because… well.. they’re the Patriots, yet I see the NFL, Penn State, and the Rams as being the issue here.

    Either way, if you want to close the “loophole” don’t allow coaches to be hired/interviewed until a certain point of the year after the super bowl… similar to free agency. Problem solved.

  20. 6ball says: Mar 27, 2012 11:15 AM

    .

    McDaniel’s had another year on his contract with the Rams. By releasing him when they did, they were 100% certain to be out from under that deal. If they waited until after the season, the Patriots may have gone in another direction.

    It was a deal that worked for both parties.

    Rich McKay is a moron and he was an awful GM for the Falcons.

    From 2000 to 2007 the Falcons have had 62 draft picks and only 5 of those picks turned into pro bowlers. Out of those 5 picks only one of them still plays for the Falcons (Roddy White).

    That means between those years 8.06% of the people he drafted, became pro bowlers and only 1.61% are still on the team.

    Why does anyone listen to this guy?

    It takes a truly special team to go to 4 Super Bowls in a row, and lose them all.

    its funny how the patriots didn’t get punished for doing something that wasn’t breaking any rules but gave them a ” competitive advantage” like Washington and Dallas did. but im sure if the pats would of won the sb or played in the nfc east the giants….i mean the nfl would of hammered them.

  29. radrntn says: Mar 27, 2012 11:26 AM

    well if they are not going to change a fumble, why in the tuck would they change this.

  30. sportsmeccabi says: Mar 27, 2012 11:28 AM

    It won’t be against the rules until it benefits another team other than the Patriots. Duh.
    If the Patriots would’ve tried putting as many guys on the field to kill the clock instead of the Giants, it wouldn’t be an issue.

    The helmet to helmet hits weren’t an issue with the league office until Wes Welker got his head taken off a couple times going over the middle.

    Diving at a quarterbacks knees was allowed until Tom Brady had his knee torn up by it.

  31. Punk says: Mar 27, 2012 11:30 AM

    Surely you realize your polls are worthless. You advocate a position. The person finishes reading your position. You ask them to vote.

    Of course the side you advocated will win. And it ought to win by a large number if you are any good at advocating.

  32. chefjayson says: Mar 27, 2012 11:34 AM

    Its a pointless arguement. If a team doesn’t want to face their old coach…fire him after the playoffs. There’s no need to change the rule because any team that fires a coach before their playoff run…deserves to have it happen to them. Surely Tebow or Manning is doin something right now that’s more of a story than this is.

  33. jwreck says: Mar 27, 2012 11:35 AM

    Though the committee doesn’t believe in closing the loophole, John Mara has hinted strongly that the Patriots will be punished for it anyway, two years from now.

    OMG. This is hilarious. Players were allowed to dive at a QB’s knees? LOL FTR – the rule was enforced after PALMER’s knee was blown out. But people want to call it the Brady rule because they hate Brady more and its more fun to blame him for everything.

    Nobody gave a damn when the Cowboys did it, yet you and others screamed bloody murder that the Pats did so. You are employing a double standard and that devalues any criticism you have of the Pats picking up McD during last year’s playoffs.

    The double standard the Pats haters apply is ridiculous. Anybody else does something either its just plain fine or you get the “everybody does it” excuse. The Pats do something legal and you act like they’re sacrificing babies on the 50 yard line at Gillette Stadium.

    @bozoandthejets

    So, you’ve memorized the final score of the last Super Bowl. That’s progress.

    Unlike you, I don’t play in the NFL. Hence, the best season I can have as a Patriots follower is to get the maximum number of games available. There’s no ring, no parade, and certainly no endorsements.

    What was I supposed to do if the Patriots won ? I’d look silly in downtown Tampa wearing my Ross Ventrone jersey and firing a gun in the air.

    Don’t worry critics, another Patriots superbowl win will be here soon. In the mean time, there are at least 28 other teams in the league that would happily, immediately trade places for the “nothing” the Patriots have still enjoyed every year since their last Superbowl win.

    18-1
    11-5
    10-7
    14-3
    15-4

    p.s. they also have 2 first round and 2 second round picks coming up

    Close what loophole? Closing what is being called a loophole would mean that if a coach is terminated during the league year, they should not be allowed to find employment elsewhere until next March.

    An ignorant fan defending a Pats move? Never happens.

    If a player is cut a the same point during the league year as McDaniels was, he’s certainly not allowed to go join a playoff team and play immediately. That makes is a loophole.

    Who exactly is ignorant?

    Nothing prevents free agents from signing during the playoffs. Any cut/waived/terminated player that passes through waivers can sign with any team.

    Well, Goodall didn’t say the competition commitee wouldn’t review this- he just had to leave the meetings because he wasn’t feeling well. Apparently, he had consumed too much of Robert Kraft’s semen the night before.

    Good idea, considering people only gave a poo cause he went to the Pats.

    Three shiney, clean, untainted Lombardi trophies safely TUCKed away.

    Two firsts, and two second coming in the draft.

    Who is betting against them making the SB again?

    ehh. Stop with all the awful bashing just to bash. Rams fan here (so you should feel bad for me already), and look the Pats won. Period. Should they have? Probably not, I mean the Rams were a beast of a team that were 14 point favorites, but good ol Mike Martz was too stubborn to utilize the best player in football at the time. Oh well, it was 10+ years ago. As for McDaniels, I believe I can still have a grudge against him for quite a while for the comical display of offense he put up in STL.

    I hope that the Fisher era brings us to a Pats-like level that we had from 99-04 with Warner, Faulk and co. It is something to strive for.

    The only thing the Pats are guilty of is being too stupid and getting caught with the spygate stuff.

    Their record over the past decade speaks for itself. But I will say one thing that will probably stir up some feathers, but what the heck…

    Brady is 3-0 in SBs as a great game manager and 0-2 when the offense actually runs through him….

    Who cares?! Its a friggin coach! Last time i checked they dont suit up…

    So… those damn Patriots get away with not breaking a rule that doesn’t exist. Just like in 2001 when they got away with the Raiders being called for an actual penalty. Crooked league is right in Kraft’s pocket.
