ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Less than five years after he started 6-0 as head coach with the Broncos, the name "Josh McDaniels" stirs up more angst and anger in Denver than "Bill Belichick," ''Tom Brady," ''Oakland Raiders," or any other entry on the city's most-hated list.
The man who gave the Broncos a videotaping scandal and a league-worst defense, who alienated fans and left the franchise holding the bag on the Tim Tebow experiment, returns Sunday to try to deliver another dagger to Denver.
Fired after losing 17 of his last 22 games, McDaniels is now working as New England's offensive coordinator and will try to devise the game plan to send the Patriots to the Super Bowl and keep his old team, the Broncos, out of it.
