Mike McDaniel tackles 'nerd' tag, takes Rich Eisen cliché challenge, channels LeBron

1. People often ask me: “Which is your favorite football team?” I then explain that I don’t have a favorite team and that every year. I support different teams depending on which players or coaches I like for whatever reason.

Even though this season is six months away, I’ll be all about the Dolphins for one reason and one reason only: their new coach, Mike McDaniel.

To say the 38-year-old with a history degree from Yale doesn’t come across as the stereotypical head coach would be a gross understatement.

McDaniel is the biggest breath of fresh air to hit the NFL in ages.
