Breakfast with McDaniels

DANA POINT, Calif. — To no one’s surprise, the largest crowd of reporters at the AFC coaches media breakfast at the league meetings this morning was gathered around the table of new Broncos coach Josh McDaniels.

The crowd began forming about a half hour before the breakfast began. In fact, two coaches who arrived before McDaniels — John Harbaugh of the Ravens and Tony Sparano of the Dolphins — shared a laugh as they entered the room where the breakfast is being held and saw all of the reporters waiting for McDaniels.

And, for the record, McDaniels is maintaining his stance that Jay Cutler is still his quarterback and that, Cutler’s trade demands notwithstanding, he is optimistic he can convince him they can have a good working relationship in Denver.

McDaniels wants to sit down with him one-on-one for a meeting to get to that point, and so far it hasn’t happened. But he insists he expects it to happen.

“He’s on our team and he’s under contract,” McDaniels said. “We are committed to him.”
