    I'd hire Marty in a second if my team sucked. His teams always win. As they say "Schottenheimer can't win the big games - but after he leaves the team can't even win the little games".

    Yeah, I think if the Jets go down in flames. Mangini hangs his coordinators out to dry and fires them and get new ones. Romeo might be the guy they get.

    I wouldn't be shocked if he came back to the Pats, but I definitely ain't betting on it.

    Romeo is really close to BB and it's obvious how BB feels about Mangini and the way he left. No way this happens.

    I'd love to have Romeo back in Foxboro. We haven't won a SB since he left, and the D (in particular) is a shadow of its former self.

    There's a long list of people you could say that about. We had a much stronger group of DBs back in Romeo's day.

    Even with Asante our defense was lacking post-2004. And Romeo didn't have a Ty Warren to complement Seymour on the line.

    I believe Bill gives his coordinators a lot of autonomy to inject their own styles in every game, and there is a noticeable difference in aggressiveness from Romeo's D to Mangina's D to Pees' D.

    We've had Warren since 2003. Wilfork in 2004 but Washington was good before him. Back when we had Law/Samuel/Harrison in the secondary we were a lot stronger than in the past couple of years. I would like to see a more aggressive defensive approach though.

    Yeah, I agree that no one person is the reason why the Pats haven't won the Super Bowl since the 2004 season. The Pats were any one of three plays away from winning it last year and having the best season ever without him.

    I liked how Romeo ran his defense and wouldn't be upset if he came back, but I think it has a lot to do with the personnel on defense than the coaching. A lot of players left after 2004 or a year or two after (Law, Phifer) or got old, injured, or declined (Bruschi, Harrison, Seymour, etc.).

    Re: OT:Espn reports that romeo to be fired at end of season

    I don't know if I would read too much into the owner's meetings stories. I know there were reports of Romeo hanging with Mangini there, but it doesn't neccessarily mean that Romeo and Mangini are closer. Belichick typically doesn't like to participate in anything during those meetings and notoriously skips the AFC Coaches breakfast every year. Belichick may have been purposely keeping his distance especially after Spygate.

    He always keeps his distance on those schmooze fests.

    I don't think so. I think the Pats would bring him in as a coach rather than let him go to Mangini. Also, I don't see Romeo wanting to work for Mangini. Not after what Mangini did to BB.

    Re: OT:Espn reports that romeo to be fired at end of season

    I don't see BB firing Pees. This year the defense is tattered and the DB quality is average/rookie caliber. I think BB believes in football loyalty and gives Pees another season to build the D.

    I am predicting this though right here and right now-

    Romeo gets canned and becomes the new DC for the Lions or the Bengals.

    Here's what would really make sense:

    Josh McDaniels as HC somewhere.
    Romeo as DC/Assistant HC.

    The Pioli package deal ideas are bunk; he isn't going anywhere. But those pairing those two is perfect -- offense/defense, youth/experience, and so on.
