Denver Broncos’ head coach Josh McDaniels did his due diligence, and he came up with a different answer than Mike Singletary.
Neither coach is right or wrong, but both believe their strategy gives their team the best shot at winning.
While Singletray elected fly his 49ers team over to London nearly a week before Sunday’s game at Wembley Stadium, McDaniels decided to stay home until Thursday so that his team could keep its normal routine.
In his Tuesday conference call with the Bay Area media, McDaniels said that following Denver’s 59-14 loss he wanted his players to get all of their preparation done at home before flying halfway across the world.
However, in his conference call just several minutes laster, former 49ers and current Broncos wide receiver Brandon Lloyd said he was torn as to whether or not he would have like an earlier arrival in London.
“I think it will be good for us, especially coming off of these last couple of weeks, just to be at home where we can focus, get our game-plan knocked out and be on the plane and prepared so by the time we get over there we’re just walking through our stuff,” he said. “I think it’s a fair schedule, but I would have liked to have been over there for a little more time to get adjusted.”
Lloyd went on to talk about his time in San Francisco, and McDaniels talked about the challenges in preparing for the 49ers.
