MacMullan on McDaniels' presence

In a story now posted on ESPNBoston.com, columnist Jackie MacMullan writes on the postseason addition of coach Josh McDaniels to the Patriots' staff and why it's such a big story.

Lets get real: Josh McDaniels is news because of his ties to Tim Tebow.

McDaniels was Lord Voldemort during his year-and-a-half stay in Denver. He was reportedly acerbic with the players and the staff. The Broncos were caught embroiled in a senseless videotaping scandal on his watch. And... he drafted Tebow with the 25th pick in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft.

For that, he was roundly ridiculed and, some eight months later, eventually fired. Losing 9 of 12 games to start the 2010 season certainly didn't help his cause.

But now you see why McDaniels is so intriguing. He was ahead of the Tebow curve.

MacMullan speaks with McDaniels' brother, Ben, who recaps Tebow's initial time with the Broncos.
