Whicker: Josh McDaniels overcomes his balk, still pitching for Patriots

ATLANTA — Noted quarterback and hashtagger Tom Brady has established the theme for his ninth Super Bowl trip: “We’re Still Here.” So is Josh McDaniels.

His reputation was built by association, with Tom Brady and with Bill Belichick. When he was 35 he was Denver’s head coach, and after two rough years he was fired and ...
