Gratuitous fist pumps aside, it's time to trust Josh McDaniels

OK, so the excessive fist pumping in the exact location of 47 camera men was a little odd, but other than that, let's see ...

- He traded a sore-losing, sore-winning, sour-faced quarterback for one who is calm (and even jovial) under pressure, rarely makes mistakes and has an awesome beard.

- He stockpiled running backs like some sort of weird cat hoarder, providing depth at that position in the face of Correll Buckhalter suffering an injury and Peyton Hillis suffering from reality.

- He obsessively chased former Patriots like Jabar Gaffney (six catches for 61 yards).

- He looks cool in throwback stuff.

What was it we didn't like about this guy?
