What coordinator could we find that would run a hybrid defense like Philly. I think it would be a horrible idea for us to switch to the 3-4 with our personnel. I want an attacking 4-3 like the Giants or Philly. Who would fill this role?

Honestly....we'd have to steal someone from the Eagles staff. Either that or bring in Jim Johnson as the HC.

at this point I'm almost convinced it has to do with someone involved with the superbowl. So I'd be inclined to ask who would haley bring in as his dc?

McDermont from the Eagles.. but I think we get Crennel.

It will be interesting to see what happens in the next two weeks for the Chiefs head coach and the coordinators.

I would think because of the delay that it must be someone from the Arizona Cardinals or Pittsburgh Steelers staff. As everyone has been speculating, Arizona OC Todd Haley could very well be the head coach. If he is the man, I would expect some people from "HIS" past to be considered for the coordinators jobs. Maurice Carthon the current running back coach for Arizona has been an offensive coordinator for Detroit, Cleveland, and Dallas. Todd was the WR coach at Dallas when Maurice was the OC. Another Arizona coach Russ Grimm might also be considered for the OC position. Also Chan Gailey might be kept on as offensive coordinator. If Todd feels more comfortable calling the plays, that might happen too.

As-far-as the question about defensive coordinator; I think that depends on them staying with the 4-3 or 3-4. If the organization decides to go 3-4, then former Cleveland Browns head coach Romeo Crennel might be looked at. He was DC with New England for 3 Super Bowls. Bill Davis the current LB coach for Arizona was the defensive coordinator for the 49ers prior to being with the Cardinals. Teryl Austin the DB coach has done a nice job with Arizona's defensive backs and he might be considered. Another name from Haley's past is Gary Gibbs. He was at Dallas when Haley was there and most recently was the defensive coordinator with the Saints before being fired.

I think if we grad Haley, my bet is Pioli selects who will run his defense.

34, 43, hybrid,... whatever. I would bring in Rivera and give him an extra title of assistant HC to pry him away from SD. I was very impressed with how he fixed the Chargers' D in half a season and without Roidman to boot.

Hi Reiss, with all the coaching departures from the Patriots, is there any discussion to bring back Romeo Crennel? I know there are probably more holes to fill on the offensive side, but I think there is always a need for a good defensive guy. I haven't seen this question on your blog but I have missed a couple of the QAs so I hope I'm not being redundant.

A: Romeo Crennel is undergoing hip surgery this month, and then he plans to decide what he'll do. Just a hunch, but I think he'll wind up in Kansas City as defensive coordinator. I don't see him coming back to New England.

Does it really matter with how terrible our front 7 are? 4-3 or 3-4 we're getting a new DC and we need new players, so whatever we do is fine with me.

I could not agree with you more.

I think we keep Tyler, Dorsey, and Hali and bring in a new RE. Johnson is the only linebacker worthy of a starting spot on our team right now. So two starting LB's and a RE and I think we'd be in business.

I hope he's right. That would be excellent.

I never really paid much attention to Crennel previously, was he really that great of a DC? One would wonder why that success didn't transfer over when he HC'd the Browns? :shrug:
