    If Pioli is out looking for a new job who is tending to the patriots needs? They just lost their oc, may lose Pioli, who knows what Bradys and Cassel futures are, they need help on defense and the draft and fa. are coming up.
    Who is in charge while they wait around to see if Pioli leaves?

    Belichick has been around football his entire life and is proactive about reaching out to talented people. His rolodex must be ENORMOUS.

    Bill Belichick and the Kraft family may possibly be vaguely aware of some things going on with the team and will probably do a thing or to about it at some point in the next year or two.

    Re: Whose in charge?

    Pioli's main role (as much as anyone knows it) is co-ordinating scouting and managing the cap. The scouts will have done their work on the college season by now and their reports will go to the Pats as usual. The next phase of workouts and combine will come after Pioli makes his decision. The Patriot's policy on contracts will have been decided by BB, Pioli and Kraft during the year so the only problem would be if Pioli wasn't there for the actual negotiations.
    No-one knows if there will be a direct replacement for Pioli but I have heard some reports that BB doesn't really want to be a coach/GM so there may be another executive promoted to Pioli's old role but I doubt they would have the same relationship with BB.

    If Pioli leaves, the main problems I would foresee for the organisation are that he would want to bring some of his people with him and that he would have his eye on the same players as BB but would have a much better position in the draft.

    Re: Whose in charge?

    Belichick is in charge with or without Pioli. Of course he trusts Pioli, leans on him and gives him a lot of responsibility. But, ultimately, Belichick is in charge; 24 months ago, 12 months ago and today.

    Certainly valid points but as far as the Staff the best guy would want to fill Pioli's void not leave with him.

    And Don't be so sure that Pioli automatically has to go run the same systems (looking for the same type of talent) as us because that will be between him and his new head coach.

    Exactly.

    If Pioli were the one in charge, the Browns and Chiefs wouldn't have even been able to talk to him.

    He can not do everything. The sooner everyone is in place the better.

    Bill knew this was coming and is prepared, it has been said that BB has a plan in place if the Ball Boy does not come back.. the hallmark of this franchise is preparation for any situation.. things will go right along we will not notice any difference.

    No and yes, but I would think that for something this important a contingency plan would be in place from the outset. That just seems to be SOP for this regime.

    Probably 80% of the people in this group don't even get that joke though.

    Well, we all know that Bill Belichick takes a two month vacation right about now, returning just in time for the Draft, and that the Krafts have absolutely nothing to do with the management of this team, which they treat like just another stock in their portfolio. So, I guess nobody is. I understand there's a couple of janitors who are authorized to negotiate with players' agents, though.:rolleyes:
