    I guess this means we are sticking with the 3-4

    I like that B'OB added a guy with a ton of coaching experience! A little disappointed that we didn't keep a few of our current coaches around though...they weren't all bad.

    No more VIP Suite so back to the recliner
    New regime. COMPLETELY NEW REGIME. Sure didn't take BO'B long to make that decision did it?

    Not surprised at all.

    Son of a martha farkin' friend of O'Brien hire. We're doomed to mediocrity with our cheap ass owner and his good ol' boy ways.

    Didn't they coach together at NE? Couldn't remember.

    What's the report on Crennel? I know he's been coaching for a long time and has been a HC at one point or another.

    Someone break it down for us...

    Kubiak/Wade ish. Great DC, horrible HC. Players he coached love him.

    McNair wanted someone that was gonna make tough decisions, something Kubes never did, this was one of them.

    O'Brien was hired by the Patriots in 07, while Crennel was the head coach of the Browns in 07. So I don't believe they've ever coached together.

    Correct. Crennel left the Patriots after '04. He was the DC for all three SB winning teams.

    I said this yesterday, I have been wanting Romeo or at least thinking of him as a grat option for us as DC since the beginning of the season. I am really happy with this hire. The man knows defense and IMO is in the top 5 DC's in the league

    Think "wishy-washy" may be a term of the past?

    Fantastic hire.

    According to Wikipedia they coached together for two years - 2007 & 2008.

    Then Crennel left for the HC position at Cleveland.

    He was the DC in NE and BO'B was the OC in NE at the same time. I'm all for O'Brien hiring his friends...as long as they came from NE. Seems to be a good franchise to copycat.
