    good for him.


    and btw, if mcdaniels gets the ravens job, what would stop belichick from hiring mike martz to take over the offense? just throwin it out there, belichick has always had respect for martz as a coach and an offensive genious.

    I always liked Shawn, especially given how terrible his first game was. Zach Thomas made his name out of knocking Shawn out.

    I think Brady has done pretty well in our current offensive system. There's no need to bring in Martz's.

    Adaptability doesn't seem to be Martz's long suit.

    I don't think BB and Martz can coexist but if they ever could this team would score 700 points. Martz made Kurt Warner look like a HOF QB, imagine what he could do with Brady?

    I agree. But..as much as I can't see it happening, I can't say I wouldn't be a bit curious about how it would work out (if it could work out).

    I'd love to see Martz here, say what you want about the guy as a coach but he's a hell of a coordinator.

    Also give him credit, in 2001 he told his team after the regular season game that the Patriots were the best team they'd play all year long and he was right.

    did martz make him look like that, or did faulk, holt, pace, and bruce?
    martz had a lot of O-talent in detroit and did nothing with it.

    Detroit has no OL and Kevin Jones was out most of the season leaving them with TJ Duckett. A talented WR and rookie WR and a journeyman QB do not a 'lot of O-talent' make.

    Martz has a huge ego
    Also as soon as he is remotely succesful, he will get another HC opportunity.

    I think BB is looking for continuity and peaceful coexistence with low ego assistant coaches.

    That rules out
    Martz

    We can't let this move go without a counter. Quickly, someone contact Vincent Brisby and tell him we have a job for him.
