    Troy is definately gone barring all of the other receivers either traded away or involved in an major accident.

    So with that said,is Brain Caserio who did a superb job with the receivers your 1st choice to coach the WRs again? or if Troy showed some interest and wanted to remain within the organization,would you want him instead?

    I think Troy would make a great coach for the receivers but since Caserio has done a great job in his rookie season it would be tough.

    I don't know if Troy would wish to do that OR have some other post in the organization... I don't know what CoachB and others think about Casano vs anyone else and will leave that decision to them. I would like to see Troy stay with the Pats in some way, but will leave it for him and the Pats to decide on that. If Casano is doing a great job, why the need to change?

    Troy has been told he will always have a place in the organization if he wants one. Position coaches work 60-80 hour weeks for much of the season and they make less than a quarter of what Troy made at veteran minimum. I assume his place would be in community relations much like Andre. More money, less hours, still around the team. His family resides in SC where his wife still works as a chemist and his young children are in school. The didn't relocate during his playing career.

    I agree as well...love TBrown. One of the few quality and genuine guys in the league. He is the symbol of what a New England Patriot is and should always be. Always a place in our hearts for this man. Hes one of a kind.

    "Brian Caserio?"

    Is that like a hybrid between Brian Daboll and Nick Caserio?

    If Brown wants to have a position within the organization, I'm sure that he'll always have one. That said, WR coach may or may not be a great fit for him. Doing something and teaching something aren't necessarily one and the same.

    I think Troy should be in charge of defensive backs. He knows routes, heck he played d-back at times. He knows both sides of the ball.

    I have never seen such disrespect for what it takes to be quality coach in the NFL.

    From anyone who thinks that a good player can just decide to be a coach. Playing and coaching are very different things. The line of thought that suggests that Brown would automatically be a coach is the reason why Ernie Adams and Belichick had trouble getting their first coaching jobs in the league- people figured that players were coaches, and vice versa, and, since those guys hadn't played a down professionally, it was assumed that they weren't coach material.

    As Belichick fans (even at Weselyan, he was far from a standout player), you guys should be as aware as anyone of the fact that coaching talent and playing talent are very, very different things. Would Brown have a leg up if he chose to start at the bottom of the ladder and work his way up? Maybe. Provided that his work ethic and intelligence are equal to those of other candidates, his familiarity with the system would be a bonus. Anyone who thinks that that alone would catapault him to the top of the ranks, though, must not have any idea how nuanced and distinct a profession coaching is.

    Probably related to that Casano guy 726 was mentioning too...

    The average fan, and we have a lot of those here lately, do not realize what goes into coaching at this level, how much of it is a progression, how few guys want to given the salaries paid to players these days, how long it takes to climb through the ranks, how crappy the pay and security are, how honest you have to be with players and management, the pressure you are under to insure guys who are not entirely there at your discretion perform as expected... They also assume anyone who can do it as a player, not to even mention post about it on a message board, could certainly teach it. They don't appreciate how much of it is breaking down a dozen or more players mentally and physically and devising a method to get through to each that will work in relation to their individual skill set and the overall philosophy of the OC or HC.

    You really have to love coaching and teaching, and not just love being around football.

    I just hope they have a Troy Brown appreciation day during one home game next year, presuming he's done playing. He deserves it as much as anyone.

    Most NFL players love playing, hate practice, hate film study, hate systems and details. They just want to play on Sunday. And once their career is over they don't ever want to work those kind of hours again.

    The one guy on this team who has expressed an interest in coaching is Vrabel, but he has also said it is at the college level his interest lies. Probably doesn't want to work with a bunch of professional prima donnas... Coaching at that level is a lot less stressful because of the limits on time spent with the players and the natural progression of turnover every 3-4 years. Unless you aspire to be a college HC which envolves so much politics and recruiting that the pressure can be stifleing in its own way.

    Troy has helped out on occasion at Marshall, and doing more of that is not out of the question. But I think his value here would be in a PR function. Those guys can always suit up in sweats to help with a project player or as a mentor to boot.

    Yup...Troy's place is in P.R....in fact I can see him rising to a prominent position in the organization as he gains experience...who has more credibility in the public eye when it comes to the Patriots than lifelong warrior and good soldier Troy?

    Actually, Welker has also expressed interest in a coaching career (at least, so said his 'lphins.com biography :) ).
