    What makes any of think that if he did not get the job as HC that he would not return as DC???

    No one is in the MARKET for HIM!!!

    He is not the HC we need.

    He was quoted to say that he wanted to become a HC again after Haley was fired. He may be kinda insulted to be told thanks for applying, but you are gonna stay our DC ...

    Because he stepped up and took a team that had been on a 5 game losing streak and beat GB who were SB champs last year and look to repeat, had a Raiders team beat but had two FG's blocked which isn't his fault and then coached us to a victory in Denver. In all reality he should be 3-0 as interim HC.

    The guy wants to be a HC again, has shown that he can game plan for different teams and with talent can handle the job as HC & DC. How is he not ready? If you stepped into your bosses shoes and did a fantastic job and said that you wanted his job wouldn't you look elsewhere if you didn't get the job? Or would you be satisfied and just happily go back to the lower position?

    There is a case both for and against Romeo being the Head coach.

    FOR

    The Packers game. That game while it was only one game showed that he can get this team to play against the top ter teams in the NFL. Going 2-1 with this team in 3 games witch really should have been 3-0 if A. Bowe doesn't drop a td catch or B. the Field goal protect unit doesn't decide to take the week off this team could have made the playoffs. This should be considered.

    The players like him. They will also no what they are going to get from the head coach. Romeo would be going into his 3rd season with the Chiefs They know him by now. That would be a good thing. The defense wouldn't change all that much as well. A new coach would change a lot more.

    He has been a head coach before. It wasn't the best but that happens often with Coaches in there first stint as the head coach. They learn from it and they become better coaches for it. You also have to keep in mind where he was coaching. The Browns have not been good with any coach in a Number of years. I think (not sure have not looked it up) that There best year since they returned to the NFL was under Romeo.

    Cons

    Age. Romeo is not going to be around for more then about 4 or 5 years. Then we will yet again be looking for a new head coach. IMO It's a much better option to go with someone younger who could be around from a good 7-10 years then Romeo.

    Hes failed before. As noted in the pros he was head coach with the Browns. While a number of coaches are much better in there 2nd go around as a head coach that is not something that is automatic. It could work out the same way. Now with that said you can say the same thing about a proven coach. It's not automatic that he will work out if Jeff Fisher would be brought in. But you have to look at the fact that Romeo has failed before as head coach before you offer him the job.


    All in all I don't think that this is a must hire. But I won't mind at all seeing him as the Head coach either.

    He did not step up...The players did and Orton made a difference because he played GB several times when he was with the Bears. Add adrenaline along with that due to the coaching change as well.

    To say he done a fantastic job is imho, a stretch.

    To say he has done a fantastic job as a DC is a bit of a stretch as well.

    A coaches job is to get the players prepared. As DC and HC if he can't get the team to step up then he shouldn't be either. We got creamed by a Jets team that missed the playoffs and then a week later we beat the reigning SB champs. What changed in that week? So yes, a fantastic job.

    As far as a DC I'd say that's a directly related to the amount of time they've had to spend on the field in our losses.

    I think he's done a great job. The players responded to him and changed the team around. Practically went 3-0 IMO.

    If an offensive minded coach comes in and is a better more qualified HC then I would hope Romeo understand and do what's right for the Chiefs to win a Super Bowl!

    So Romeo is supposed to just step aside and let someone else coach HIS team? What makes anyone think that a new head coach isn't gonna want to bring in his own defensive coordinator? In that case the coaching staff is scrapped and we may as well be starting over. Do any of you remember the amount of changes that the team went through when Herm Edwards came in? Or when Todd Haley first got here? We don't need an offensive-minded head coach. We need a great offensive coordinator. How many times in the past did we have the best offense in the league and got to the playoffs and flopped because we didn't have the defense? Does anyone really want to start over? Or better yet, let's go out and finish 13-3, get the top seed, and lose in the first round of the playoffs to an inferior team. This is a defensive-minded team and we don't need to try and change that, we just need to add some offense.

    How did they do as a team in the 2 games following the GB win?

    Oh...Ok.

    The reason we need an offensive minded coach vs. having Crennel as HC and a GREAT OC is ebcause the OC will LEAVE as soon as he rights the ship! Then we are right back where we have been for the past sevral years.

    If anything, get a balanced HC that can get a good OC. Keep Crennel as DC.
