Josh McDaniels: I’ve studied weather more than I ever thought I would for camp practices

The Raiders became the first team to have their entire roster report to training camp this week and that meant head coach Josh McDaniels was able to oversee his first practice of the summer with the team on Thursday.

It’s not the first time that McDaniels has been the head coach of an NFL team, but it has been more than decade since his time with the Broncos came to an end so it has been a long time since McDaniels has been in that role.

“It feels like there’s a new start a few different times . . . but it’s always great to get in there with the entire team and see how eager they are to get to work,” McDaniels said, via Cassie Soto of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

One of the new things for McDaniels in this stop is the heat that the team will be practicing in during camp. He said he has “studied temperature and humidity more than I’ve ever thought I would” and that he thinks practicing in the morning should prove to be the best thing for the team. McDaniels added that they can adjust and move inside if the heat becomes too much, but that the lower humidity in Las Vegas has left him feeling he’s sweating less than he did in other places.

  1. Better study physiology a little more, Josh. You’re still losing sweat, it’s just probably evaporating before you can see it BECAUSE of the heat and low humidity.

  2. The heat is on McDaniels already. If he flames out again, this maybe his last HC gig. Let’s see if the 2nd time is the charm….it was for BB.(with the lucky of Brady)

  3. Matt Patricia studied rockets and it did nothing to help him coach in the NFL. His attempt to coach the Lions was a rocket fired right back at him.

    This is going to be hilarious and sad at the same time to watch.

    I feel bad for Raiders fans.

  4. McDaniels’ signature visor is surely helping neutralize the sun/heat. That’s the kind of innovator he is.

  5. I don’t understand the comments dissing on him. We’re literally in a country wide heat wave so his comment makes a lot of sense.

    Well, apparently BB got lucky again by having Mac Jones fall into his lap. Luck or not, the greatest coach ever and who is fantastic working with prospects everyday, because those prospects benefit GREATLY.

  7. BB is the most overrated coach in the history of the NFL. If not for Brady and to be honest Mcdaniels (who is a big reason Mac did so well) he would be nothing but a defensive coach. Look at he mess he is calling a coaching staff right now. Two guys with zero offensive history other than failure sharing the OC job. You BB fans need to stop dreaming and idolizing and start realizing he is an old overrated coach.

  8. It makes a lot of sense you’ve got really big men who weigh a lot and the heat can be punishing in the desert and Las Vegas is in the middle of the desert you don’t want people dropping from heat stroke or dying in the heart attack or something

    Maybe YOU should do a bit more studying on that there Lonely. Lower humidity allows your sweating (as you noted) to lead to more effective COOLING of the body. So, in addition to your sweat “evaporating”, it’s also more EFFECTIVE, so you would be cooling more and sweating less. So, pick at what he said all you want, he’s largely correct.
