How would the Patriots' offense be defined?
That was a question that Denver-based reporters asked former New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, the new Broncos head coach. They wanted to know if he was going to run a similar system to Mike Shanahan's West Coast style of the last 14 years.
"Our system is very unique," McDaniels said, according to the Denver Post. "There are not a lot of branches off a tree that uses this system."
As the Denver Post piece notes, McDaniels would like to implement a similar system in Denver as he ran in New England, and that means having the personnel to adjust on a weekly basis.
"The unique part about that is I know a lot of people associate what we did in New England with the passing game, but we were sixth in the league in rushing this year," McDaniels told the Post. "It's the unknown or missing piece that not many people know about or talk about. It's not the same each week. It won't be the same. It doesn't fall into a specific category like the West Coast."
