Josh McDaniels Opens Up About Colts Job + His Expectations On The Year
Recorded: August 16th 2023 | In this week's episode, again, it is still just the boy Will as Taylor is in his final week up in Canada. The intro is super football centric in this episode. Will goes through and gives his prediction for Nebraska’s football season and the boys in the back chime in as we give our predictions for the college football season.
Following the intro, the boys sit down with head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, Josh McDaniels. Coach and the boys have a mutual friend in Dave Ziegler, the Raiders GM, as he was Taylor’s guidance counselor in high school. So they start off the pod talking about Josh and Dave’s relationship which is cool to hear. Following that they get into how McDaniel’s used to coach Mike Vrabel. He gets into how much of a headache it was going against him just in practice and all the trouble he caused.
The boys then get into some of McDaniels former coaching stints with the Broncos, Patriots and what eventually happened with the Colts. He talks about the different lessons he learned at each stop and how he is using them in his time at the Raiders. Finally, the guys get into talking about the Raiders roster itself. They have a stacked roster and McDaniels dives into some detail about some of their studs like the boy Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones. This is a very laid back interview and shows that McDaniels is just another one of the boys. Enjoy fellas.
