Tom Brady on Josh McDaniels: I’d hate to lose him, but teams should want him

Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is lining up interviews with teams looking for a head coach and it feels like there’s a good chance that this will be the year he leaves New England for a second time in search of success running his own team.

If McDaniels does leave, it would be a major change for Brady. During an appearance on “Kirk & Callahan” on WEEI Monday, Brady said that he sees McDaniels “more than anyone else in my life” during football season and that he believes he “could never be the player” that he is without McDaniels’ help. That makes it easy for Brady to see why others would be interested in a coach that he’d love to see remain in New England.

“I see why there is a lot of interest and there should be because I think he’s the best in the NFL,” Brady said. “Great coaches get opportunities and he’s fortunate to be in a position where he should get them because he’s earned it. I would hate to lose him, but I think it’s always aspirational for a coach because it’s great to lead a team, lead an organization.”

The Rams, Jaguars and 49ers are expected to talk with McDaniels over the weekend.

  1. I think McDaniels’ past experience at head coaching will serve him well in his next stop. (of course working for The Hoodie all these years helps, too)
    About that picture…Is he really that tiny?

    If McDaniels is so good why isn’t he still the Bronco’s HC?
    Because he didn’t have the league’s mancrush/HGH cheatin, one Peyton Manning. Simple as that.

  3. The fact that the Niners are setting up HC interviews when they haven’t hired a GM yet should make McDaniels very leery of that job unless Caserio is going with him. If that happens then they both should be leery of going to work for a guy that just fired 2 coaches in a row after only one year. The Rams are sketchy and getting saddled with the project that is Goff and no #1 pick only makes it worse. Outside of Bortles Jax has a lot of talent and a solid owner.

    umm, that is because bb is by far and away the greatest
    gm and coach who ever lived. by a mile..

    get it?
    Then why does he have to cheat Einstein?

  5. Patriots’ staff poaching will be furious. Many hate the Patriots but they will grab the chance to get their personnel.
    Can’t blame Josh, Patricia,Casserio etc for striking on their own. If the money and situations are right, why not? Brady as usual is nice. Teams should want McDaniels…. Brady ought to know. As long as the Patriots have BB and Brady, the Patriots will be fine. The team just have to work harder. The brain drain will take its toll after awhile. The Pat’s lost a lot people already. It’s a good thing Scar came out of retirement to help out this season. Maybe the Pats will still win the SB…

  6. I’d love for him to stay too but understand he’s a high commodity esp now with so many teams having fired their HCs. He’s still the OC for us so hopefully all this interest in him will not distract him from the job he still has to do. #striveforfive

    Ummmm yeah right Tom, maybe McDaniels will draft the next Tim Tebow in the first round when he finds a spot to land.

    Don’t be cutting up on signing McDaniels! As a Pats fan I’m expecting he gets a big fat contract and has the same results as Charlie Weis, Romeo Crennel, along with Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, Matt Cassell, even Darrelle Revis – every guy who flopped after shining with the Pats organization.

    Dear Josh: It’s a dangerous world out there and lots of bad things can happen. Please don’t leave and you can stay stay safe and warm here in NE!

    Belicheat assistants always fail as HC’s elsewhere, it’s a fact.

    April 13, 1970 – The NFL Commissioner punished the Dolphins cheating by making the Dolphins forfeit a 1st round draft pick. This punishment was a result of The Dolphins being caught tampering when they hired Don Shula. As a direct result of this cheating the Dolphins were able to “earn” a perfect season in 1972 and “win” the Superbowl on January 14, 1973. The bad karma for this example of the Dolphins cheating has resulted in the Dolphins never “winning” another Superbowl.

    Does anyone remember if any of the Dolphins fans were posting nonsense claiming that the Patriots turned off opponents QB radios during home games?

    I seem to recall hearing that the Patriot radios were broken Sunday in Miami. If that’s the case were the Dolphins cheating?

  10. Some trolls from Pittsburgh are obsessed with BB and the Patriots, don’t pay attention to them they are full of envy and make ridiculous statements. Just wait for the stealers to fall and they’ll vanish.
