DP - Ty Law open to returning to Denver - Lindsay Jones
"Denver fans need to be patient with McDaniels — he showed progress in his first year, and next year he’ll be even better. As the Broncos continue to add talent to their roster, they’ll become factors in the AFC West."
"Mike Nolan's decision to part ways with Josh McDaniels seems to be a clear-cut example of colleagues who had a different vision for how things should take place...You can bet unsung players who grew into starting roles under Nolan in Denver, like defensive end Ryan McBean
and outside linebacker Mario Haggan
, are wondering how this change may impact them. Heck, the only reason Broncos nose tackle Ron Fields was in Denver in the first place is because of the impression he made on Nolan while he was the head coach in San Francisco."

"By almost every statistical measure, the offense McDaniels found was better than the one he created." How about turnovers? Those count for anything? No, they're just an afterthought?
