    Re: New Offensive Coordinator

    Belichick is the head coach in New England as long as Brady is the QB.  Then he goes to the front office to be the GM.  That's why this team never replaced Pioli.  No - Belichick's not going to want to be head coach of any post-Brady teams at 65 years old.

    If I'm McDaniels, I come back because I'd have the inside track on the HC job in just 4-5 more seasons.  Plus, I'll still have Bill's insight to draw on while he's GM, and the Kraft family will still be in control of the franchise.  

    Plus, I'd have a few seasons to groom the backup QB to replace Brady. 

    It's a good situation - if you want to wait a few years for it.

    If so Sox can do a closer by committee, why not do an Offensive Coordinator by committee of the fans on this board who are all so knowledgeable. LOL

    Happy early April Fools !!

    Re: New Offensive Coordinator

    What's wrong with being an OC who is happy being an OC in the NFL with the constant evolution of the game and challenge of learning all the nuances and strategic options that can help win games... ? This job appears to have a lot to sink your brain into, yet guys have been bailing on Brady and BB. Is it the demands of the job? Is it the money? Maybe Bob should realize the value of keeping a smart OC who loves the job enough to keep at it AND GET BETTER AT IT. Obie was OC one season and called plays for two and was average at best. The mcd option falls into this. (Can he get here like tomorrow?) If josh can accept this role. BB likes in house promotions. Maybe this is a variation on that.

    I think it's money and prestige. Lets be honest, how often do the OC and DC get credit when something goes right and how often do they get blamed when it doesn't. For all the hard work they put it they get far more grief then praise. On top of that you get paid a fraction of what a HC gets paid so you get little credit, a lot of blame, and lower pay. Except that the cord's have less to worry about then the HC and it's a bit less stressful there really isn't a huge upside to not wanting to be a HC, esp if they are competitive people. But, some are perfectly content with it, in the end that decision is up to them

    Re: New Offensive Coordinator

    Would be interesting to know what his raise will be going to Penn st... And why do I get the feeling that the pats underpay their coaches ? Hmmmm... Wonder if BB is talking to mcd right now... Time is money. If that is the move, why wait ? Get him in here, hit the ground running, and transition as quickly as possible. Mcd must be jonesing for another crack at the playoffs after 2007 nightmare and 2008 frustration of not getting in. There is something serendipitous about him coming back here and under the circumstances who would be better...? Not sure how much the offense has changed in the past 3 years but my assumption is that he could virtually throw on the headset and trot out there. And how about the added drama and intrigue if Denver beats Pittsburgh ...

    Re: New Offensive Coordinator

    Daboll is not an option -- one of the interesting back stories covered in Michael Holley's new book is that Daboll has hard feelings towards Belichick for promoting McDaniels ahead of him in 2007, and Belichick likewise has hard feelings towards Daboll for defecting to the swamps of New Jersey.
     
    Daboll is just as likely to return to NE as Eric Mangini. Besides if you read the stories about how he treated Colt McCoy in Cleveland, I'm not sure I'd want him around some of the younger guys on the offense (Cannon, Ridley, Vereen).

    Yup I read that, it also mentioned in that book that Daboll didn't want Jackson or Maroney...McDaniels did.

    Re: New Offensive Coordinator

    I have thout ever since I saw BB in that documentary on The NFL Network that he was preparing to leave as HC in as few as 2 more years. That show helps him seal his legacy. One more SB win would be maybe the final goal. I agree that he may have been grooming Josh to take over (and maybe had been thinking of Mangini as his succesor prior to Josh, until manginious stabbed him in the back) and may now see this as a second chance to put his personal pick in the HC job. If I'm Josh I run, not walk back to NE.

    Re: New Offensive Coordinator

    There are a ton of head coaching vacancies right now and McD might get one...most of these guys, especially if they are young, get another shot. Think Mangini. 

    I would welcome him back. He should maybe take another coordinator job until he's really ready to head coach cuz the next chance might be his last. Think Mangini, nobody is throwing his name around.

    If Josh comes back it will be to get his graduate degree as his AA wasn't enough to cut it as an HC..

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: New Offensive Coordinator : Thanks for not throwing me under the bus.   Your post makes sense....if and I think that's a big if..... BB has his sights on retirement in the next few years. I think BB wants to go down as the greatest coach in the history of the game. He will be considered the greatest if: He wins five SB's as a HC, and he wins a SB or takes a team deep into the playoffs without TB12.   Can McDaniels wait that long? 
    Posted by gandalf433[/QUOTE]

    I have been watching BB's winning percentage. he has been climbing steadily but he is still twenty-first behind George Seifert. I think there are six active coaches ahead of him now, including Sean Payton and Mike McCarthy. A few more years like this and he might be way up there near the likes of (dare I say it) John Madden, who is currently second.

    Funny thing is I heard Michael Holley talking about this very subject after I wrote the earlier post on Daboll.  I forgot that he went to the Jets with Mangini.  So ya we can forget about Daboll.
