    Because of BB's ego, I knew it was a long shot for Weiss to return. I think BB wants to prove he can win a super bowl on his own without his original coordinators.

    So much for "Weis and Pioli hate each other".

    That was quick, it was bound to happen but they need some help on the defensive side of the ball since they essentially have two offensive coordinators..

    Not surprised in the least...best opertunity for him since the Chiefs are his best chance to rebuild the offense into one that he can control and put his guys in place and is controlled by two guys who know him and his style well.

    Exactly. Chances on him coming back to Pats was slim to none.

    Charlie wants to be a head coach again. Coming back to the Pats would hinder that process. Even if he won another Super Bowl, he would be considered part of a system. If he makes Cassel what he was in 2008 again and turn around that offense, he will probably get another job as soon as 2011.

    Hell, if you put some talent around him he can flat out win games. (eg: Back-to-back 400 yard games)

    Of course, I don't think he'll ever have another duo as talented as Moss & Welker.

    I agree with you 100%. There will be no Romeo back either.

    My first reaction was a combination of surprise, disappointment and resentment, pretty much in that order.

    I was surprised that he made this decision without there at least being active rumors swirling that he was coming back to New England. Then I was disappointed in the same and finally I resented that we would have to go another year without the benefit of a premier OC.

    But when I thought about it, it makes complete sense for Weis. If he'd come to Foxboro, he would have always been competing with himself and what he accomplished here. He is a genius at developing young, talented QB's and in KC he's teaming up with a Personnel genius who will listen very seriously to what he has to say. :)

    I'll leave it to others to speculate on whether New England was not big enough for both Belichick and Weis as well as on whether BB is motivated by showing he can win an SB without Weis. My guess is "maybe" on the former and "I don't think so" on the latter.

    But the main reason I think he didn't come here is that he's 53 and probably hopes to move up to be an HC in no more than three years; since BB shows no signs of retiring, it would have meant that he would have had to leave "again."

    And, as an afterthought, I wondered at first whether Todd Haley might start to feel added pressure to succeed with Weis in the wings. But, then I reflected that the Chief's success would be a classic "Win-Win" for both Weis and Haley, as they clearly have significant mutual self-interest at the heart of their relationship; plus, I guess they already know each other pretty well.
