Some of the quotes from a story by Bill Williamson -- Vonnie Holliday - The Broncos, after 14 years of mostly good times in the Mike Shanahan era, were being questioned nationally. There were whispers about whether the kid from Canton, Ohio, would go one and done in Denver. There was arguably no coach in the history of the NFL who faced more scrutiny before walking the sideline for the first time than McDaniels. "I heard all of that," Holliday said Sunday. "But when I was talking to some coaches on this staff, guys who were much older and much more experienced than Coach McDaniels, they said, ‘Don’t listen.’ They said some good things were happening here. They said Coach McDaniels was special ... it didn’t take me long to realize they were right. There’s something about Josh McDaniels." Brandon Stokley - From our first meeting I knew [Denver owner Pat] Bowlen made the right decision, We’re lucky we have him. We’ve all bought into his plan."
