Josh McDaniels is hoping that his second go around as a head coach goes much better than his first after posting an 11-17 record with the Denver Broncos from 2009-10. He explained what went wrong in his latest press conference and how he plans for things to go differently with the Las Vegas Raiders.

McDaniels pointed out that he is not the same man that he was over a decade ago. He failed to work with the people around him in Denver and it ended up costing him his job. McDaniels stressed that he has grown in many ways since then and now knows the importance of collaboration and teamwork.

"What do I need to do different, how do I need to handle my role, if I have another opportunity, and do better at it? I feel like that’s really an area that I’ve tried to grow in."

McDaniels has spent the last 10 NFL seasons as the New England Patriots offensive coordinator. During that time, he has focused on learning how to work with other coaches and not put all the pressure on himself. That will be crucial for his potential success with the Raiders moving forward.

There's no doubt that McDaniels is a top-tier offensive game planner. He will be tasked with improving a Las Vegas team that ranked No. 18 in scoring despite finishing No. 8 in total yards. The Raiders will look to build off a successful 2021 season by earning another playoff appearance in 2022.
