Power Prankings: Teams I'd like to see Josh McDaniels spurn
Welcome to Power Prankings, a weekly weird-ass list.
Given the Packers' firing of Mike McCarthy and the news that Josh McDaniels is expected to interview for head coaching positions this offseason, the easy choice for a list is teams I'd like to see Josh McDaniels screw over. It was amazing when he did it to the Colts and he should be forever celebrated for it.
5. PACKERS (last week: 22)
The idea of McDaniels passing on coaching Aaron Rodgers would help build quite the résumé of great quarterbacks he chose not to coach.
4. BROWNS (last week: 9)
I hope he takes the job, everyone freaks out about him "going home," then he goes to the introductory press conference and says "I'm from Canton. Also I'm not taking this job."
3. JETS (last week: unranked)
[Insert joke about a Belichick disciple resigning as HC of the NYJ.]
2. PATRIOTS (last week: 15)
This would be a scenario in which Bill Belichick retires and the Patriots are blindsided when McDaniels tells them he isn't taking the job because he took a management position at Staples. This idea is stolen from Season 3 of The Office.
1. COLTS (last week: 1)
This one would be amazing. He'd have to fall on his sword and give some song and dance about how he owes them and offer to come aboard as an offensive assistant on Frank Reich's staff. Then once the team sends out a press release announcing the hiring, boom.
