FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The NFLs news of the week broke Monday in Los Angeles, 3,000 miles from where the New England Patriots offense would dismantle the Baltimore Ravens top-ranked defense about six hours later. The news reverberated across the continent and back. Jeff Fisher was out as Rams coach, and its entirely possible that the guy who ends up replacing him is the guy running that Patriots offense.He is Josh McDaniels, 40-year-old failed former Broncos head coach and redeemed New England wunderkind, and hes ready for another shot at the big job.McDaniels declined to discuss the issue Tuesday, saying he was focused on getting the Patriots ready to play his former team Sunday, and thats what youd expect him to say. Even if they want to, the Rams couldnt interview him until the playoff bye week, assuming the Patriots get a bye, or the week after, if they dont.But McDaniels is going to be among the hottest head-coaching candidates when that cycle opens up next month, and the Rams job is going to be appealing for a number of reasons: big market, top young quarterback prospect, stars at running back and on the defensive line, and patient ownership willing to spend, among others. McDaniels and Los Angeles are a match that makes sense, and this wont be the last time you read about it.McDaniels Xs-and-Os credentials are flawless. What he has accomplished as the Patriots offensive coordinator this season speaks for itself. That the Patriots went 3-1 without Tom Brady the first four weeks of the season, scoring 81 points in those three victories, is a testament to his creativity and problem-solving ability. The creativity continues to be on display with Brady back. Monday nights victory was a masterpiece of tempo-shifting scheme creativity that maximizes matchups and keeps the Patriots multiple steps ahead of their opponents as games go along. The Patriots defense seems to be taking all season to come together the way the team hoped it would, so theres more pressure than ever on the offense to carry this team into and through the postseason.But a great coordinator does not automatically a great head coach make, and McDaniels is going to have to answer questions from interested teams about what went wrong in Denver and what he learned from it. Those who know him well say he knows that and is prepared with answers.McDaniels was 33 when the Broncos hired him as a head coach and gave him significant control over the roster. Put simply, he wasnt ready. He went 8-8 in 2009, then fell off to 3-9 through 12 games in his second season before they fired him. It was a brief and tumultuous tenure that began with an ugly mishandling of incumbent quarterback Jay Cutler and ended with a videotape-spying scandal. During his time in Denver, McDaniels endured personality clashes with players and assistant coaches that have been well-documented.Six years have passed, though, and McDaniels is now older than some of the head coaches (Adam Gase, Ben McAdoo) who were hired last year and have done well. He has drawn cursory interest on the coaching market the past couple years but hasnt been inclined to jump back in at the first opportunity.I definitely would love to be a head coach again, he said last month. There are only 32 of those in the world. They are opportunities that dont come around very often. It would have to be at the right place and the right time. I try to make good decisions, whats best for my family and myself.People who have worked with McDaniels cite his high intellect as a reason to think hell succeed if given another chance. Perhaps more than ever, a head coach these days has to be able to think along with his personnel people, his salary cap people, to understand the intricacies of what it takes to run the franchise so that he can be as successful as possible in the locker room and on the sideline. McDaniels is well-regarded as intelligent enough to thrive on those fronts.In his second stint with the Patriots, McDaniels also has shown an ability to connect with players of different types and ability levels and to communicate with them in ways that draw the best out of them. His failure in Denver, people who know him say, taught him what he needed to work on, and hes smart enough to know how to (A) put it into practice and (B) deliver real and thoughtful answers when asked about it in his next interview cycle.Maybe he doesnt get the Rams job or any job this time around. But at 40, McDaniels is ready and well-positioned for another shot at NFL head coaching. If hes going to make good on his considerable talent, Los Angeles could be the perfect spot.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Receiver Jordy Nelson is gradually rounding back into pre-injury form for the Green Bay Packers.With four touchdown catches in a seasons first three games for the first time in his career, Nelson doesnt appear to have missed a step.But it has been a work in progress overall for the Packers, especially after coach Mike McCarthy took a cautious approach with Nelson and kept him out of preseason action.Frankly, I think we made it difficult on Jordy. I think expectations on him were unrealistic, for him to come out of the preseason and think hes going to go down to (the season opener in) Jacksonville and perform, McCarthy said this week. I think hes exceeded the reality that I had for him.But McCarthys restraint was understandable.Nelson arrived in camp having made a full recovery from a right ACL tear, an injury that knocked him out for the 2015 season.But he also started the preseason with what he described as a minor issue in his left knee . It was concerning enough to the coaching staff that Nelson only started practicing with about a couple of weeks left in training camp.Nelson doesnt think that McCarthy made his return difficult at all.I think my body made it difficult with what happened and some extra stuff we had to do. I think we did what we needed to do to be ready for Week 1, Nelson said on Wednesday after practice.Following a bye last week, Green Bay is preparing to host the New York Giants on Sunday night.That 27-23 win over the Jaguars was played in sweltering, 90-degree heat, not exactly ideal conditions for Nelson to play in his first regular-season game in more than a year. He finished with six catches for 32 yards and a score .I mean, who knows what Week 1 would have been like if it wasnt in Jacksonville, Nelson said. It mightve been different. But weve progressed and Im very satisfied with how its turned out and were continuing to grow.The connection between quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Nelson returned in the Week 3 win over Detroit , when Nelson had six catches for 101 yards and two scores. That rapport has been honed over years of work together between two of the teams elder statesmen.If the Packkers can maintain that vintage form, the turning point for the offense might have come with 2:49 left in the first quarter of the Lions game.dddddddddddd On first down, Rodgers found Nelson up the right seam for a 49-yard gain on first down.Its the kind of big play that the Packers were pulling off with regularity in Nelsons last healthy season in 2014.I think he looked pretty good last game , Rodgers said. Very cerebral, smart, great second, third reactions. Hes a big time player for us and were excited hes back and being productive.The slow start this season -- at least by Packers standards -- made hardcore fans nervous. The conventional wisdom around the league was the Packers offense would return to form as soon as Nelson started catching passes again from Rodgers.Nelson would give the offense the deep threat it desperately needed. That would relieve the extra attention placed on Randall Cobb, who excels with making tough catches in traffic.Younger receivers such as Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery would take their next steps in development to add variety and depth.While Nelson never placed the expectations of being an offensive savior on himself, he was aware of them. The nine-year veteran never judged his progress by catches or receiving yards.So me personally, the way I feel throughout a game, the way I feel on Monday when we come in after a game, how the body recovers by when we practice on Wednesday, I think thats what a lot of it is, Nelson said, and its gotten better and to be honest with you, I wish we didnt have a bye week.Game notes McCarthy ruled out Sam Shields (concussion) for Sunday, the third straight missed game for the cornerback. ... S Morgan Burnett (groin) and LB Clay Matthews (ankle/hamstring), along with DT Letroy Guion, DE/LB Datone Jones, who each have knee injuries, took part in practice again on Thursday after all four key players missed the Lions game.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Genaro Armas at: https://twitter.com/GArmasAP Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
