    This does some serious damage to the Belichick coaching tree with Crennel out also. The other way to look at it, though, and what I believe, is that it reinforces Belichick as the single best coach, maybe ever. It apparently doesn't matter much at all whom he assembles for assistants. Mangini turned out looking like a weak coach with no dominating personality whatsoever, a trait you have to have to be a head coach. Crennel, don't know, not much exposure to him. Does this make Josh McDaniels' stock drop? Again, Belichick is da man!

    I think Romeo is a great coordinator but doesnt have what it takes to be a head coach. He wouldnt be the first, look at all of the great coordinators out there who stepped up to HC, did poorly, but suceeded when they went back to the coordinators role.

    All good points. I don't think though that it makes JM's stock drop. How many of our past players have gone to other teams via FA only to fail miserably? Yet it didn't stop Randall Gay from getting paid.

    Or it means that, like with his players, he surrounds himself with guys who are exceptionally good at what he has them do, and maybe not at a whole lot else. He maximizes their skills. Just because Crennel turned out to suck as a head coach doesn't mean that he isn't great as a defensive coordinator. Personally, I just hope that McDaniels keeps Weis, Crennel, and Mangini in mind when some podunk 4-12 team is trying to sell him on its head coach position. Your stock will never be higher than when you're an assistant for Bill Belichick.

    Remember BB was fired by Cleveland, Dungy was fired by Tampa Bay, Coughlin has been fired at least twice maybe more, very few coaches, find sucess at their first Head Coaching job. It has more to do with the state of their respective franchises than their coaching ability.

    Mangini is a rat and is most likely not going to get another NFL job for a while.

    Romeo lost his starting and back-up QB and Savage wasn't exactly the best GM. Braylon Edwards and Kellen Jr have been bust for him. Cleveland is a mess, but Brady Quinn will be OK, and with another good hihg draft pick (like Thomas) they will be OK. If you watched any of those games, the amount of dropped passes was incredible, I don't know how much of that you can blame on the HC.

    The Pats players loved Romeo when he was here, and given a second chance, I think, that he will do much better.

    How Marvin Lewis and Herm Edwards still have jobs is beyond me, how many losing season must they put up before they are called to task?

    its not necessarily crennel.........part of it is that some franchises are beyond help until they hand everything over to a dictatorship.......

    bengals
    browns
    lions
    jets
    chiefs
    raiders
    redskins
    texans

    there are probably more............

    I'd like to give the titans credit for sticking with fischer through a rebuild.........most teams would have canned him in 2004 or 2005
