McDaniels had the worst possible start to his Raiders career as they suffered a franchise record collapse. They took a 20-0 lead against the Cardinals and fans began to relax. Perhaps they had misplaced fears about the former Broncos’ failure. But then they suffered a humiliating overtime meltdown.
Meanwhile, McDaniels lost against Jeff Saturday’s Colts in yet another crushing blow. Remember, Saturday had never coached above the high school level before he controversially took the Indy job. McDaniels’ firing was long overdue because he is incapable of managing a head coach’s responsibilities (via Nevada Sportsnet).
