'Embarrassed' McDaniels apologizes to fans, owner

Anytime you get beat by 45 points, you're probably not happy. If you get beat by 45 points while giving up a franchise-record 59 to a division rival who has consistently failed to be anything even resembling mediocre, well, you're just downright embarrassed.

Like the apologetic Josh McDaniels, following Denver getting spanked -- at home, no less -- 59-14 by the Raiders on Sunday.

"Absolutely," McDaniels responded when asked if he was embarrassed. "I fail to believe that we couldn’t have put together a better performance than that. So, I take full responsibility for it. It’s not good enough – it’s not even close to good enough. I apologize to (Owner) Pat (Bowlen) and the organization, all the fans and everyone else. It was awful."

Kyle Orton also mentioned that the team has some "soul-searching" to do before they head to London. That's true, and McDaniels should be plenty concerned for his job at this point (bright side: Bowlen knows he has to convince someone to come in and take over a team that just burned a first-rounder on Tebow!) if the Broncos continue to descend into the cellar of a weakened division.

On the bright side, they get the 49ers in London -- provided that Alex Smith doesn't get really healthy really quickly, Denver's defense gets to face David Carr, the NFL equivalent of a slumpbuster.

Yes!  My Chargers are #1 in BOTH offense and defense...and 2-5!  It would be awesome if they finish #1 in both with a 2-14 record...when was the last time the #1 team in the League drafted #1?

Wink sheeeet. The Chargers make the CowGirls look good. I'm not sure, but did I actually hear the the Chokers had the #1 offense and #1 defense? What....did Pete Prisco give them that rating?

Don't worry bronco fans. You'll be meeting the chargers in a few games. They'll make you look good.

Fire Him! I have been a Bronco fan since I was a kid in the 70's. I can't stand Mcdaniels and his ego. I don't care about losing Cutler or Marshell but losing Tony Sheffler, Peyton Hillis and Coach Mike Nolan pisses me off. Fire Mcdaniels and lets bring in John Elway in some capacity and offer the head coaching job to Mike Nolan.

As a Chiefs fan I could care less of either team, but wow how awesome is it to see the Broncos just get absolutely smashed. I can't stand McDaniels, he truly has to be the most arrogant asshole not just in the NFL but anywhere. Horrible coaching and McDaniels ego is going to be the demise of the Broncos as we know it, I love it. As long as Bowlen continues with this little Moe of a coach at the helm, dont count on denver being a a force in this division any time soon. Sorry denver, plan on being in last the rest of the season and the next, and the next, and the next......you get the idea. Atleast you will have a top five pick next year.

Josh McDaniels is one of the most arrogant coaches in the league.  The decisions he has made since he got to Denver haveblown up in his face.  Karma is coming back to haunt him.  the demise of the team couldn't have happened to a better man than Josh.  As a coach he is lost.
