Do other teams really covet McDaniels as a Head Coach?

    I'm wondering how other team fans view Josh McDaniels as a sought after potential head coach, as the NFL Network Adam Schefter asserted today on WEEI.

    Some Patsfans view him as the best thing since sliced bread - others have questioned his playcalling choices in years when he didn't have the benefit of Randy Moss and basically gave up in trying to establish an even halfway credible deep threat in 2006.

    Is Josh a guy other team fans would covet as their head coach? Or would they worry that the guy might not look all that good without Brady, Moss and Welker on the field executing his plays.

    Other teams in the NFL think they can turn their organization into a clone of the Pats if they hire BB's protege. As was stated in the radio interview, they would still lack one important piece - Tom Brady.

    How ironic...for weeks all you hear is how everyone despises the "cheating" Patriots and loathes Bill Belichick, but apparently, they'll be clamoring for the services of McDaniels on the hope that he has a fraction of the great coaches knowledge!

    It's understandable that coordinators from other teams are going to be of interest to teams in need of coaches. Frankly I'm confused as to why McDaniels is the prime name and not Dean Pees.

    Pees did a great job overall last year I thought, even hampered by injuries, the lack of LBs etc... he never gave up and found ways to cover up deficiencies.

    Even McDaniels supporters meanwhile admit that he "gave up" on trying to develope a credible enough deep game to keep 9 defensive player from stacking the line.

    And that was with Tom Brady at QB - if a team is looking for an offensive boost and wants McDaniels they likely have a mediocre QB and a mediocre WR - and therefore GMs might want to consider if he's well suited to breath life in an offense with limited skills.

    All that being said, one hopes that McDaniels learned from his mistakes last year... and yes, as much as some want to believe otherwise, he did make plenty of mistakes last year...

    Hopefully he is getting better though - having Moss and Welker are certainly a good way of making one appear to have improved, that's for sure!

    In their quest for a clone of BB other teams might sign our Coordinators, however to sign them without replicating a similar management structure will negate their ability to create and other pats clone.

    Consider Bob Kraft, he leaves things alone, keeps contract stuff quiet and lets his management team manage the team.

    Scott Pioli, behind the scenes guy, who keeps players coming..

    BB, a coach who knows more about the game than anyone else, smarter than most who knows how to attract veteran players, how to use them and manage the team to make them all better.

    Consider Romeo and Savage in Cleveland, a tenuous relationship at best. Romeo will never rise to the status of BB, and we will never know how good he could be because he is being held back by the Cleveland Org.
