Just a quick observation for my friends at MHR - NFL.com are reporting that former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels has been schmoozing with his former employers in New England.
As many more informed reports on MHR have previously stated, clearly the boychild has some ability - look at the stats for Kyle Orton and Brandon Lloyd under his tutelage - but as a head coach, it didn't take Einstein to realise that McDaniels was well out of his depth in that role. Nonetheless, he has demonstrated enough ability as a co-ordinator.
And so, after setting the Broncos back more effectively than a tsunami, it seems that Belichick may yet pull the trigger and reinstate McDaniels in the soon to be vacated Offensive Coordinator post with the Clambakes, now that O'Brien has agreed to take the reins at Penn State.
But enough about that lot - it's time to get ready for the playoffs. I'm off to reserve a spot on the couch. The New Orleans-Detroit game promises to be a thriller, even though it won't finish till well after 4am here in the UK. Better get a comfy spot on that sofa then, 'eh?
And fingers crossed for tomorrow night. Let's hope Tebow reverts to his form of a month or two ago, and that Roethlisberger twists his ankle getting off the team bus tomorrow....
