    One thing that came to mind reading this is Caserio.....Its persumed he moved to the front office with replacing Pioli in mind but if Pioli stays might he return to the coaching tree and be the OC next year or do you leave him be to continue to learn behind Pioli?

    Re: Felger:patriots Put To The Test Once Again

    One thing that people seem to forget about Caserio is that he moved from the front office to the coaching staff and then back to the front office. Here's his résumé since joining the Pats:

    2001 Personnel Assistant
    2002 Offensive Coaching Assistant
    2003 Area Scout
    2004-2006 Director of Pro Personnel
    2007 Wide Receivers Coach
    2008-present Director of Player Personnel

    This looks much more like the résumé for a replacement for Pioli than for McDaniels.

    Re: Felger:patriots Put To The Test Once Again

    oh yeah I forgot about that....regardless of who he replaces one would think he tried coaching and found out he was better in the front office. So much for that idea....I was trying to come up with another option for our offensive coordinator as I am not sold on the experience of the offensive guys still around other than Scar who apparently likes being a postion coach.

    Have to believe that after the Weiss/RAC departures, BB has been planning for these types of an exodus every season. He's become a victim of his own success. But it truly is fun to watch all the mediots asking is this the end and have the Pats succeed anyway.

    I forget where I read it, but I read an interesting point about Bill's coaches. He likes to move them around, so that they get experience on offense and defense. Makes sense that he'd want a front office guy to see how the whole front office system translates to coaching, too.

    The Belichick tree continues to grow new limbs.

    Aren't we forgetting that at this point, Brady is an assistant offensive coordinator?

    Re: Felger:patriots Put To The Test Once Again

    I never can tell if the point of these articles is to question whether Belichick is an illusion and the loss of [fill in the blank with a name] will pull the curtain away and expose him as a fraud or rather the point is to compliment Belichick as the one necessary piece to the organization's management puzzle. This article seems like the latter case.

    I still believe Belichick has a system at both the field and management level that allows things to go on business as usual when someone moves on to another team. The team's outlook supposedly was bleak after Weis and Crennel left in 2005, but somehow the Pats moved on and subsequently Mangenius, McDaniels and potentially Pioli are deemed worthy of high offices in the NFL. Acknowledging Weis, Crennel and Mangenius did not light the world on fire without Belichick, at what point do observers start concluding the thing those three were missing, specifically Belichick, explains their success with the Patriots.
