It was way back in 2010 when the current New England Patriots offensive coordinator and the Broncos were each fined $50,000 after a team staffer got caught filming a San Francisco 49ers practice in London. As you may remember, that same staffer was also involved in the Patriots’ Spygate scandal.
Former Broncos player D.J. Williams is going viral on social media this week after he decided to recall the Broncos cheating ways.
In an appearance on the I Am Athlete Podcast, Williams brought up how the team was 6-0, got caught, and then fell apart for the remainder of the season.
However, as For The Win pointed out, Williams was mixing up his years when recalling the story.
“In 2009, the Broncos did indeed start 6-0 only to close out the season on a 2-8 skid and miss the playoffs. However, Denver didn’t play the Niners in London until the 2010 season. The Broncos were 2-5 heading into that Niners game.
So, Williams framing the Niners game as the turning point wouldn’t match the timeline because the scandal happened a year after the 2009 collapse. Brandon Marshall, who was with Denver for the 2009 season but not 2010, didn’t appear to catch Williams’ mistake either. Williams was mixing up his seasons.”
McDaniels’ name has come up for years as getting another head coaching job, but he only accepted one back in 2018 when he was announced as the new head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. However, McDaniels withdrew from the position on the same day and announced that he had decided to stay with the Patriots.
