    I think BB likes Martz, right? Just wondering if he might be a candidate if Josh leaves.

    Maybe Martz just needs to work under the right head coach. ;)

    The Rams and 49ERs fired his butt and not to mention the lowly Detroit Lions

    Do you really want a guy that even the Lions thought was not very good?

    No thanks,Lets pass on this bum

    Just because BB says he admires his schemes doesn't mean he'd want him as his offensive coordinator.

    There are certain things Martz believes such as ball security and limiting turnovers not being as important as trying to make big plays that BB would never go along with.

    Likes him because every time he plays him he knows how to shutdown his "crazy/high powered" offense!

    Btw...BB says he likes mangini too!

    The Lions fired him because he thought he knew more than the HC and I would assume his personality got him in trouble with Singletary in SF as well. I hate Mike Martz, it maybe irrational but he drives me crazy...as a HC! As an OC he is as good as they come, he is creative, aggressive and dynamic in his play calling. What he could do with Brady and company quite possibly would be amazing, probably record breaking!

    But I don't want him...it would be a whole new offense for everyone to learn, who knows if he could check his ego (my guess is he would respect Bill enough to not step on his toes) and he gambles too much.

    No Martz for me....Please!!!!

    Really? Has he said that anytime in the last three years?

    it's a bit of hyperbole but I hope you get the point. BB says he likes/respects a lot of people but there are deep down those who he despises and wants nothing to do with. I firmly believe martz falls into the category of the latter.

    If you follow BB closely you can tell the difference. He's expressed genuine admiration more than once for Martz's acumen as an offensive strategist in specific terms. He's also given similar praise to Shanahan.

    Martz? I'll pass! (Get it?)

    Seriously I agree that the guy has creativity and ability, but his go for the big play philosophy, and stubborn inability to adapt to what a D counters you with makes him a No-Go for BB. Rather than constantly fight it out with his OC I'll wager that BB would prefer a less experienced but cerebral up and comer assuming he couldn't find a greybeard congruent with his move the chains first, and wait for a big play opportunity philosophy.

    agree with shanahan. just like jauron...saban (when he was in the pros)...norv turner....gruden....etc..

    But, a guy like martz, and i've listened to BB's press conferences more times than you know, BB may like martz but he has no use for him.

    He may talk about him being an offensive genius, creative or whatever words you want to describe but I'm telling you, deep down, BB knows he can squash him. One thing about those other guys, very rarely does their ego get in the way of winning a game. Martz is a guy who's ego does and that's something BB can't stand.

    Oops. Looks like someone stole PATRIOTSFANINPA's log in info and is posting reasoned analysis under his name.

    I like Martz and I think he could fit in fine here, Belichick doesn't have a history of going outside of the organization for top jobs though. OTOH there doesn't appear to be a clear succession plan if McDaniels leaves.
